SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Zentera Systems, Inc., the leader in enclave-based security and connectivity for workloads in hybrid computing environments, today announced its CoIP Smart Discovery™ capability, which brings automation to micro-segmentation, a key component of the company's flagship CoIP Security Enclave™ solution.
CoIP Security Enclave already enables enterprises to specify their micro-segmentation policies and then the Enclave software automatically generates application-aware segmentation rules to protect application workloads in unified virtual overlay networks called enclaves. Those workloads can be running anywhere, including on-premise and across any cloud, hybrid and multicloud environments. With Smart Discovery, the software itself scrutinizes workload behavior to uncover existing application compute flows and behavior. Enterprise IT security teams can then quickly complete micro-segmentation definitions and find any potential gaps in their segmentation implementation. This intelligent automation saves considerable time and effort, especially in a hybrid environment where numerous applications and workloads are mixed together.
Smart Discovery is fully integrated with CoIP Application Interlock™, an existing security capability that allows companies to specify which authorized applications in a specific CoIP enclave are allowed to access the enclave's network. All other applications are locked out, greatly enhancing enclave security. With CoIP Secure Enclave, a hybrid or cloud environment is no different from on-premise, and enterprises have full control over connectivity and security that enables them to implement one unified security policy across all environments.
"In the highly competitive hybrid security market, the automation provided by CoIP Smart Discovery moves the industry forward once again for hybrid security and builds upon the AWS Shared Responsibility model like no other solution," said Mike Ichiriu, VP of Technology and Products. "Zentera, recently recognized as a Cool Vendor in Cloud Security 2017 by Gartner, remains the fastest route to enterprise-grade security across diverse environments."
The CoIP Security Enclave provides a complete defense-in-depth security solution to enterprises wanting to protect application workloads anywhere, by ensuring consistent security policies and elastic implementations across hybrid computing environments. Because the Enclave is an overlay network and is completely decoupled from the existing underlay network, it can be up and running in less than a day.
The Smart Discovery upgrade for CoIP Security Enclave will be available through our network of security solution providers. To learn about becoming a Zentera integration partner, see http://zentera.net/zentera-partners/technology-integration-partners/.
Zentera secures application workloads in hybrid environments by connecting them through a unified virtual overlay network, or enclave. The CoIP Security Enclave™ platform provides security and connectivity. It works with any infrastructure in any environment, does not interfere with existing environments or security, and can be up and running in less than a day. It provides defense-in-depth for enterprise applications in the cloud, moving to the cloud or on-premise. CoIP is deployed for worldwide operations by global corporations.
