Catbird and Cronos Partnering to Secure Virtual Infrastructures in Belgium and the Netherlands
August 8, 2015 — Scotts Valley, CA
Cronos joins Catbird Partner Program and will resell Catbird’s software-defined security suite in Belgium and the Netherlands
Catbird, a leader in software-defined security, and Cronos, a Benelux-based e-business integrator, announced that Cronos has joined Catbird’s Partner Program and becomes the first Catbird reseller in Belgium and the Netherlands.
“We are very happy that Cronos is joining our Partner Program, and could not have wished for a more qualified first reseller of our security software products in this region,” said Catbird CMO, Bart Vansevenant. “Cronos is a very unique company. Unlike traditional System Integrators, they purposely gain knowledge in new technologies early on to gain experience, and to transform that knowledge and experience into strategic solutions for their clients.”
“A lot of organizations still believe that traditional perimeter security technologies are sufficient to also protect their virtual infrastructures, such as virtualized Data Centers and private clouds. Unfortunately that is not the case. As organizations move their applications to virtual infrastructures, they will need to complement their existing security layer with software-based security technologies deployed within their virtual infrastructures,” said Cronos CEO, Jef de Wit. “Catbird is a pioneer in this space. Their two products respectively provide visibility into and protection of virtual infrastructures. Catbird’s technology allows putting a security wrapper around each application or workload – a model also known as micro-segmentation. We are proud to be the first solution provider in Belgium and the Netherlands that has been fully trained and certified to help organizations adequately protect their virtual infrastructure using this innovative technology. ”
Catbird’s software suite was designed from the ground up to provide visibility into and protection of private clouds and virtual Data Centers. Catbird Insight automatically and continuously discovers all assets in your virtual fabric, allows the grouping of these assets into logical Catbird TrustZones®, and visualizes asset relationships and the east-west traffic flows between them for improved analytics. Catbird Secure enables automated enforcement of flexible security policies across Catbird TrustZones. The platform detects and alerts on potential security incidents, initiates corrective enforcement actions, and provides instant compliance reporting for major standards and mandates.
Catbird is a pioneer and leader in software-defined security for virtual infrastructure. Catbird’s software suite provides visibility into and protection of private and hybrid clouds, and virtual data centers. The company has been recognized as one of ten hot security products at RSA 2015 by Network World, and is a winner of four Best of Show Finalist Awards at VMworld, CRN’s Virtualization 50, and SC Magazine’s “Innovator of the Year” for virtualization security.
