2019 was an incredible year of growth and innovation for Guardicore and the world-class technology ecosystem that passionately supports it. The future for software-defined cloud and data center security transformation looks more attainable than ever. A growing number of technology vendors, both large and small, now work with us to deliver joint solutions to solve some of the biggest cyber security pain points of today’s enterprise customers.
We are honored to have some of the world’s most well-known companies as our customers, and to work together with them to secure their most critical assets as part of their digital transformation strategy. These customers build, run and manage an integrated set of applications and services to deliver a unique experience for their own internal and external customers in turn. Guardicore, alongside our technology alliance partners provides a pragmatic enterprise-ready solution that allows our customers to embrace a complex and innovative hybrid cloud environment, both culturally and through technology. As we continue to evolve in this new year, I wanted to mention and highlight a few updates.
Guardicore is now available on the Microsoft Azure marketplace as a preferred solution after earning an IP co-sell status. Customers worldwide can now gain access to the Guardicore Centra security platform directly from the Azure marketplace.
Guardicore was selected to join the AWS’ Outpost announcement. Outposts are developed, installed and deployed by AWS on customer premises and managed as if they are part of the cloud. Read more about it in our recent blog.

Native Cloud Orchestration Updates:
Guardicore now provides out-of-the-box native integration with all large Cloud Service Providers: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. This is in addition to VMware and OpenStack integration and support for other orchestration services via built-in RESTful API. This allows our customers to truly embrace and use a hybrid cloud infrastructure, allowing them to migrate from on-premises data centers to any cloud or clouds choosing the right technology that meet their needs, whether that’s hosted servers, IaaS, PaaS or hybrid.
New Eco-system Product Certifications:
We are happy to announce that the Splunk application for Guardicore has passed the Splunk certification process. The application and the add on are now available directly from Splunkbase. Guardicore integration is available for version 7.3 and above, including the newly released Splunk version 8.x
Identity Management Updates
Guardicore completed an integration as well as product certifications with Privileged Access Management solution provider CyberArk (Centra Privileged Session Management plugin available from the CyberArk marketplace) and identity providers Okta, Duo, Ping Identity, Ilex International, and Redhat SSO using SAML and Active Directory Integration. To learn more about using Guardicore Centra with CyberArk read our blog on the integration.
On-premises Virtual Desktops and Desktop-as-a-Service
Guardicore Centra is validated as Citrix ready for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and is listed in the Citrix Ready Marketplace. You can read more about it in this blog. In addition, we have shared information on how Centra can be used to segment users on Amazon Workspaces (DaaS).
We’re also excited about the future innovation that will be announced and demonstrated later this year. As our technology partners continue to work with us to deliver integrated solutions, you can expect more exciting announcements. Stay tuned and keep up with our blog for the most up-to-date information.
