SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Catbird, the leader in security policy automation and enforcement for private clouds and virtual infrastructure, today announced a new partnership with Cisco. Revealed today on Cisco's blog, the partnership brings Catbird's policy-based security automation, evidence of control, and compliance enforcement capabilities to Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
"ACI's policy-based approach to the physical and virtual network is a perfect complement to our policy-based network security approach for data center asset control and compliance enforcement", said Edmundo Costa, CEO of Catbird. "Catbird was built to secure SDN. The partnership with Cisco ACI will dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of compliance by ensuring that network security controls are delivered based on an application-based policy, in a flexible and elastic manner."
Within today's highly dynamic cloud data centers, assets and their network configurations are subject to change yet compliance continues to rely on manual processes lacking automation. Catbird, with Cisco ACI integration, allows IT teams to stitch network security into ACI policy, providing a highly standardized, automated approach to provisioning security as part of the network policy, through the asset lifecycle from asset inception to teardown. Catbird also delivers enterprise-wide visualization, workflow and reporting for assurance of control, continuous measurement, and enforcement, essential for complying with standards such as PCI, HIPAA and FISMA.
ACI's network and application view, combined with Catbird's asset-based network security policy automation and enforcement, will allow assets to be seamlessly protected through their entire lifecycle. Network security and compliance measurements are seamlessly integrated into the network fabric, providing customers with enterprise-wide visibility and data protection.
"SDN will transform network security and make hardware-based security obsolete" said Randal Asay, CTO for Catbird. "Network security and compliance policy attributes are delivered via integrated services, something that the hardware world only dreams about. Catbird provides an in-fabric, distributed approach that delivers security deep within the SDN infrastructure."
Catbird brings the power, agility and automation of the cloud to security policy and compliance, with a solution that automates, instruments and enforces policy while providing proof of continuous compliance. Customers rely on Catbird for managing cloud and virtualized infrastructure subject to compliance requirements including HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FISMA and SOX.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
