Reflex Security Announces Reflex VSA Support for Citrix XenServer

Leading Virtual Security Solution Secures Increasingly Popular Virtual Server Environment

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - Reflex Security, the leader in integrated network security for data center, core networks, and virtual environments, today announced that Reflex VSA (Virtual Security Appliance) now supports Citrix XenServer. Reflex will be exhibiting at Citrix Summit this week in booth # 412.

Reflex Virtual Security Appliance provides a new layer of security for the virtual environment providing comprehensive intrusion prevention or detection, LAN-based firewall, network access control, IP to ID, and network discovery for traffic inside virtual network. Reflex VSA protects virtual server environments which are subjected to many of the same security threats that physical servers are subjected to. Reflex VSA offers proven technology not only to secure virtual environments but to increase overall security for the entire organization by leveraging the virtualization platform.

"We're pleased to lead the market by adding support for Citrix XenServer virtual machines," said Hezi Moore, CTO and founder of Reflex Security. "As organizations increasingly adopt virtualization strategies many are realizing that a total security solution for virtual environments is needed. Through integration of network security with the virtual infrastructure, organizations are able to adopt and deploy 'defense in depth' best practices without the traditional high costs and complexities associated with physical infrastructure."

Reflex VSA provides the following security features and security coverage for the virtual network and virtual machines:

--  Visibility and awareness of the virtual environment
--  Security inspection of the virtual network and VM communications
--  Security and segregation among Virtual Machines
--  Access and control for servers and devices that access the virtual
    network.
--  Security compliance (PCI, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA)
    

Reflex Security's architecture provides cohesive, multi-layered protection of virtualized machine resources by addressing the essential security problems faced by CSOs and Network Managers implementing Citrix and VMware virtual servers in production environments.

"We certainly see the need to offer our customers a solid security solution for virtualization and we are starting to see increasing interest in Citrix XenServer from clients that are considering virtual servers," said Dave Mast, sales and marketing manager of Precision Computer Services, a Reflex partner and Citrix Gold channel partner based in CT. "Customers will be much more likely to implement a virtual server strategy if they know that leaders like Reflex Security are providing security for their environments with a proven solution like VSA."
