Helps Organizations Reduce Risk and Gain Operational Efficiencies
Denver –Aug. 28, 2012 – Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise and federal clients, today announced the availability of its FIDELITYv framework for identifying and mitigating risk in virtual environments. In combination with Accuvant’s years of security-specific experience, expert-level virtualization proficiency, and strategic partnerships, FIDELITYv helps organizations realize more secure and agile IT models with additional cost benefits.
“Accuvant has dedicated a team of experts to research the challenge of security in virtualized environments, and found there is limited expertise and understanding in the market,” said Steve Perkins, director of secure virtualization for Accuvant. “Most organizations have been adopting virtualization by transplanting traditional physical world security models and security products into virtualized environments. This is inefficient and insecure – virtual infrastructure needs virtualization-specific security architecture and solutions.
“Accuvant is committed to helping organizations build world-class security programs for virtual environments that comply with regulatory requirements, protect against attack vectors, and increase operational efficiencies.”
FIDELITYv is a simple framework for systematically looking at security in the virtualization space. It represents the main areas of traditional security infrastructure, each of which has virtualization-specific considerations: Firewalling, Intrusion Protection, Data Protection, End Point Protection, Logging and Analytics, IP and Transport, and Your Virtual Infrastructure.
Accuvant’s FIDELITYv framework is supported by the company’s Secure Virtualization services, which include:
