Arista Introduces Secure Cloud Networking

Grazed from Arista Networks

Arista Networks today announced security capabilities focused on private, hybrid and public cloud networking. Based on Arista's cloud-grade EOS and CloudVision state-of-the-art software, Arista's approach redefines silo security into holistic security designed for a multi-cloud environment. Key integration includes VMware NSX Data Center and Zscaler for holistic security.

The new security expansion delivers three attributes: extended network segmentation, improved compliance through cognitive controls and new platforms with integrated encryption for wide-area interconnect. These provide customers secure solutions, to reduce operational costs and mitigate threats in the emerging cloud era.

"The challenge to secure an enterprise network is getting more complicated and expensive every day. Siloed security solutions promise to make things easier but actually, have the opposite effect. Security needs to be simplified to be truly useful. Arista's network segmentation approach, to simplify security across the security islands, will help to address these challenges," said Golan Ben-Oni, Global Chief Information Officer, IDT Corporation.

Datadog Accelerates DevSecOps, Zero Trust Strategy with Cyxtera's AppGate SDP

Grazed from Cyxtera and Datadog

Cyxtera Technologies, the secure infrastructure company, today announced that Datadog, a leading monitoring platform for cloud-scale applications, has successfully implemented AppGate SDP, a network security solution that dynamically creates encrypted, one-to-one network connections for secure user access. As a result, Datadog was able to meet stringent security standards while pursuing an aggressive Zero Trust strategy. Cyxtera' s AppGate SDP enables Datadog to automatically provision user-based, dynamic, and strengthen the security of network access to their AWS environment. 

AppGate SDP provides an adaptive and intelligent "software-defined perimeter" that increases resilience, simplifies management complexity and reduces costs. Leveraging the principles of Zero Trust networking, AppGate helps organizations dramatically reduce the attack surface of enterprise networks and provides a distributed and agile cloud-scale access control solution built for today's hybrid enterprise IT.

Grazed from NeuVector

NeuVector, which delivers continuous network security for containers, today announced the immediate availability of NeuVector 1.3, the most significant release of the container firewall security solution since its initial launch. Adapting to evolving container security needs, NeuVector 1.3 features a wealth of key security, integration, and UI additions. NeuVector is also releasing a new Enterprise version of the solution, which features capabilities specifically designed for large-scale deployments.

NeuVector is the only true Layer 7 container firewall, providing Layer 7 filtering for all container traffic, along with network intelligence that understands application intent and disallows suspicious behavior. NeuVector 1.3 enhances these critical protections across several fronts, including the ability to detect attacks that rely on tunneling (a technique used to conceal attacks). The new release also adds automatic forensic capture on every detected threat, and makes it simple for security teams to safeguard connections to and from external and legacy networks. The NeuVector solution is compatible with Docker encrypted networks (enabling inspection of encrypted connections), and is also integrated with Red Hat OpenShift, Rancher, and Kubernetes.

U.S. Department of Defense's Shift to Cloud Computing Saves Costs, but Unlocks Network Security Threats - Report

Grazed from MarketWatch.  Author: PR Announcement.

The high costs of operating, securing and maintaining a large variety of often redundant legacy stove-piped networks has steered the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) toward mature commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology. Cloud computing will enable the DoD to share servers, storage devices and applications to save resources and time. The military can maximize the potential of network-centric warfare and enhance collaboration by using commercially successful service oriented architectures to provide software and applications within a private cloud.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan's ( http://www.aerospace.frost.com ) Analysis of the U.S. Department of Defense Cloud Computing Market research finds that the DoD's cloud spending will grow from $676 million in 2011 to reach $740 million in 2016 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3 percent...
