Reflex Security Sheds Light on Virtual Infrastructure with Virtual Security Center

Reflex Security, the industry leader in virtualization security management, today announced the availability of Reflex Virtual Security Center (VSC), pioneering a new level of security through heightened visibility and control for virtualized environments.  Reflex VSC provides a single authoritative visual interface to secure the virtual data center.  Coupled with the award-winning Reflex Virtual Security Appliance (VSA), the VSC brings essential functionality to round out the Reflex virtual security management solution.

Reflex VSC provides the ability to see the complete virtual infrastructure topology.  The solution is the industry’s first to take the approach that without the ability to visualize both the logical and physical elements of the virtual infrastructure, effective and efficient security cannot be achieved.

Reflex VSC drastically increases the visibility of an organization’s virtual infrastructure so it can be properly secured, enabling organizations to align virtualization security solutions with real business objectives.  Reflex VSC invokes best practice methodology by first discovering the entire virtual environment to determine the security controls needed to fully secure the infrastructure with Reflex VSA.  This approach dramatically simplifies and automates the security of VMs, while reducing the potential for improper configurations. 

“Visibility and security go hand-in-hand, and today’s regulatory and threat environment make that link increasingly crucial,” said Hezi Moore, CTO of Reflex Security. “The combination of the new Reflex VSC and Reflex VSA provides unprecedented visibility and control over the virtual network, enabling faster, more efficient response, and easier compliance with the numerous regulatory standards that are increasingly demanding insight into virtual environments.”

Improving Security through Visibility and Control

Recognizing customer need for cross-functional centralized security controls for their virtual infrastructure, Reflex VSC harnesses the power of virtualization to simplify and automate routine activities such as security deployment, policy configuration, and event correlation and reporting.  With Reflex VSC, operations and security teams have a single authoritative visual interface to administer, secure, and monitor the dynamic virtual infrastructure.  This results in better network and event visibility for a faster and more effective security response. Through extensive real-time and historical visual reporting, Reflex VSC gives administrators the tools they need to efficiently meet stringent compliance requirements.

Organizations with VMware ESX environments will especially benefit through Reflex VSC’s extensive integration with VMware’s VirtualCenter.  Reflex VSC discovers virtual assets and maps them so users can attain a visual view of the virtual infrastructure.  Reflex VSC is the industry’s first product to allow users to drill down into virtualized infrastructure, providing an unparalleled level of visibility, security and revision control.

Reflex Virtual Security Appliance (VSA) Enhancements

Through the combination of visibility and revision control provided by Reflex VSC, Reflex VSA has been enhanced, giving administrators the insight required to understand, monitor and secure dynamic virtual environments.  The combined functionality provides a broader view of virtual infrastructure which can stop threats earlier on in the environment.  Together, Reflex VSA and VSC provide the ability to view alerts and events in context to the virtual infrastructure.


Reflex VSC is available now and is included in the purchase of Reflex VSA.  Reflex will be showcasing the entire Virtual Security Management Solution at the VMWare Virtualization Forum Thursday, July 24th in Atlanta, Georgia.
