Most virtual networks are not much different from physical networks so the same networking and security principles should be applied. Whether your running a virtualized platform in the data center or at remote offices, concepts like network separation are critical to safeguard various virtual resources from each other, protect and separate the virtual data and management networks, prevent the spread of malware, and provide containment against hackers and other threats.
Secure your Virtual Infrastructure
Connect and protect your virtual networks and infrastructure. Support for all the leading hypervisor-based platforms including VMware, Xen/XenServer, KVM and Hyper-V.
Protect the Virtual Network
Secure External Connectivity
All virtual networks require some form of physical connectivity which means you may want to securely connect virtual resources to the outside world. Endian provides this with both IPSec or SSL VPN (OpenVPN) and multiple connectivity options including network-to-network and individual remote access (roadwarrior). Whether you are using virtual platforms to connect remote offices, link up data centers, or just for disaster recovery, Endian has the solution for you.
Hosted / Cloud Services
If you are providing some form of a hosted or cloud public service then you already recognize how important it is to ensure to your existing and potential customers that you implement maximum security processes and technology. Our virtual solution can enhance any hosted service from simple web and email services to more complex VoIP and VPN configurations. The Virtual Appliance makes securing your virtual platform simple, scalable, and best of all cost-effective.
