Solution Combining Nuage Networks Software Defined Networking (SDN) with GuardiCore Threat Detection Capabilities Provides Advanced, Real-Time Protection for Data Centers and Clouds
Tel Aviv, Israel, – GuardiCore, a leader in internal data center security, today announced its Data Center Security Suite as one of the first technologies to achieve Nuage Networks certification. GuardiCore integration with the Nuage Networks Virtual Services Platform (VSP) helps organizations easily add advanced security to the Nuage Networks environment to detect, analyze and respond in real time to advanced threats, minimizing the cost and damage of a breach.
The GuardiCore Data Center Security Suite is built from the ground up for today’s modern data centers and clouds, providing unparalleled visibility, active threat detection and real-time response for both virtual and physical environments, and scales to support the performance requirements for high traffic data center environments. GuardiCore stops sophisticated attacks by using a unique combination of threat deception, semantics-based analysis and automated response to engage, investigate and then thwart confirmed attacks with pin-point accuracy.
The Nuage Networks VSP provides Software Defined Networking capabilities for clouds of all sizes – from small private clouds to the largest public clouds in the world. Nuage Networks VSP makes the network as readily consumable as compute resources.
Together, GuardiCore and Nuage Networks deliver a highly scalable security solution to help protect critical corporate assets and data in data centers and clouds. When deployed alongside the Nuage Networks VSP, GuardiCore provides detection, analysis and real-time response to advanced persistent threats (APTs), insider threats and malware propagation.
Integrated with the hypervisor and the virtual switch, GuardiCore leverages the Nuage Networks VSP to scale east-west traffic inspection, collect rich content about every process, and provide fast and broad response to all confirmed attacks. All connection attempts that violate security policies managed by Nuage Networks are redirected, in real-time, to GuardiCore for further investigation and analysis. Once an attack has been confirmed by GuardiCore, all affected VMs and servers are quarantined through Nuage Networks network control.
“We are excited to welcome GuardiCore as one of our first certified security partners in our ecosystem,” said Charles Ferland, Nuage Networks Vice President of Business Development. “The partnership between Nuage Networks and GuardiCore is highly beneficial to customers and represents truly complementary capabilities, such as network security policy enforcement and advanced threat detection and response through automatic reconfiguration of the network.”
“We are proud to integrate seamlessly with the Nuage Networks VSP,” said Ariel Zeitlin, GuardiCore CTO and co-founder. “As data center networks evolve to optimized fabrics, security protection must now also evolve to become part of the network fabric. Together, Nuage Networks and GuardiCore deliver just that.”
Founded in 2013 and funded by Battery Ventures, Greylock IL and strategic investors, GuardiCore is a leader in internal data center security and threat detection and is transforming security inside data centers and clouds. With GuardiCore, enterprises gain real time visibility, understanding and response to illicit activity within the data center in minutes not months. Leveraging threat deception and application-level network visualization, GuardiCore’s distributed threat detection and automated attack mitigation solution is uniquely designed to address the security challenges across virtual, high traffic data center environments.
