Altor Networks unveils new version of Altor

Detects unauthorised changes to VMs in virtual and cloud environments

By CBR Staff Writer

Altor Networks, a provider of security for virtualised data centres and clouds, has launched Altor 4.0, which is packed with security features that leverage virtual machine introspection to bring X-Ray like visibility to internal virtual machine (VM) states, delivering compliance assessment and automated security enforcement.

According to Altor Networks, the new version provides platform for protecting virtual data centre and cloud deployments and automatically detects unauthorised changes to VMs in virtual and cloud environments, and can selectively quarantine the offending VMs while alerting IT admins about the exceptions to corporate policy.

The 4.0 version inspects traffic to and from each VM to eliminate blind spots, and enforces policies at the global, group, and per-VM level, ensuring isolation between and within trust levels and allowing for precise micro-segmentation, the company claims.

The Altor 4.0 provides full view of all inter-VM network communication; enforces corporate and regulatory policies for required applications, services and VM settings; and offers access control over all inter-VM network traffic via firewall policies and enforcement.

Amir Ben-Efraim, CEO and co-founder of Altor Networks, said: “Altor has led the virtualization security market on a number of fronts with a purpose-built, hypervisor-based and now VM Introspection-powered approach that is unique to the industry.

“Our vantage point in the virtualised fabric lets us pinpoint the weak spots for customers and seal them with the strongest possible security [policies/controls], while leveraging automation to simplify administration, monitor VM compliance and avoid costly errors.”

The Altor 4.0 is currently in beta version and will be available in the third quarter of 2010 with price starting at $1,500 per CPU socket.
