TZ Infrastructure Protection Installs TZ Centurion(TM) in BlueLock's SAS-70 Type II Certified Data Center

INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 12/09/10 -- TZ Limited's wholly owned subsidiary, Telezygology, Inc. (TZI) and its Infrastructure Protection operating business unit announce the completion of the first North American installation of the TZ Centurion™ micro-protection platform complete with TZ Centurion™ Server control software for BlueLock, an experienced provider of cloud hosting and managed IT services. The TZ Centurion platform was installed in the largest of BlueLock's SAS-70 Type II data centers -- the center of hosting solutions for many of BlueLock's global clients in the financial services, pharmaceutical, technology and education sectors.

"As a certified VMware vCloud Datacenter Services provider, we've worked diligently to incorporate security into every aspect of our cloud hosting services," said Mike Durham, Director of Quality, BlueLock. "Security is a top concern of nearly every client when they evaluate cloud computing solutions and we make sure we have the systems in place that meet the stringent level of physical and operational security they require. The TZ Centurion platform provides that level of security and protection right down to the cabinet level and to the critical IT assets within."

BlueLock was recently ranked 37th in Lead411's Technology 500 List of 2010 -- recognized as one of the fastest growing tech companies in the United States. The amazing growth of the company prompted a real need for a highly compatible data center security solution that could keep pace with continual expansion.

"Currently our largest data center houses 28 racks with the capacity to house 100 racks, which we anticipate reaching very quickly," said Durham. "We looked at several security and micro-protection options available, but none offered the level of cost-effective scalability that the TZ Centurion platform provides. With the quick growth that we have experienced over the past two years, we cannot afford to run into any scalability obstacles."

In addition to addressing their need for scalability, the TZ Centurion platform also satisfied BlueLock's requirements for system compatibility.

"Cloud hosting is at the core of the BlueLock business," stated Durham. "The fact that the TZ Centurion platform is compatible with a cloud environment enabled us to easily integrate the new technology into our data center. We look forward to seeing TZ Centurion platform extensions and new releases of TZ Centurion Server functional software modules as we continue to expand our data center facilities."

"Our TZ Centurion Server software modules, which run on a Microsoft® platform, will provide BlueLock with the capability to plan, monitor and analyze human traffic down to the server level, and at the same time give real time visibility on the environmental conditions and power consumption around these IT assets," added Maarten van Duijn, Vice President of TZ Infrastructure Protection, Inc. "The BlueLock installation is another great example of how we provide our customers with full control over their physical IT assets."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...
This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
