Security for Virtualized Environments by Bitdefender Now Available on AWS Marketplace

Bitdefender Joins Amazon Web Services Marketplace to Give Customers Easy Access to Virtualization Security

BUCHAREST, ROMANIA and LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 04/24/12 -- Stand A90 Infosecurity Europe - Bitdefender, an award-winning provider of innovative security solutions, today announced that Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) is now available on AWS Marketplace, an online store that makes it easy for customers to find, compare, and immediately start using the software and services they need to build products and run their businesses. The value and functionality that Security for Virtualized Environments provides in a datacenter is now fully available in the cloud. The flexibility of Bitdefender SVE means that AWS Marketplace customers have a comprehensive and centrally managed security solution that provides added protection for virtual machines running Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments utilizes AWS APIs to deliver intuitive centralized management of both Windows and Linux systems. Organizations that use the cloud or a combination of cloud and virtualized datacenters can reduce the financial, logistical and performance costs associated with traditional security approaches.

By incorporating Bitdefender SVE into the overall security posture, enterprises ranging from large-scale deployments to a handful of virtual machines now have additional protection on all major platforms and operating systems running on the Amazon Web Services cloud.

"AWS Marketplace is providing a computing model that works for organizations of all sizes throughout the world. Becoming a member of the AWS Marketplace eco-system is a proud moment for us, as there is now an enterprise-level choice of security for public and private cloud users, no matter what size," said Robert Krauss, Director Enterprise Sales and Alliances, North America, Bitdefender. "Organizations run a variety of platforms both in the cloud and potentially in datacenters concurrently, and need to run a single comprehensive security solution. Security for Virtualized Environments included in AWS Marketplace means that organizations can benefit from the same advantages as if they were using SVE in their traditional datacenter."

With Security for Virtualized Environments by Bitdefender, AWS Marketplace customers have the significant advantages of centralized scanning and management. By using Bitdefender on Amazon Web Services, customers can effectively manage their instances' security, apply group policies and view logs for each AWS region from within one central console. SVE de-duplicates and centralizes much of the scanning functionality at a single, dedicated virtual appliance drastically improving performance. This approach greatly increases scanning performance and reduces Anti-Malware resource consumption within the protected instance, providing increased cost savings.

Blockchain has shifted from hype to reality across many industries including Financial Services, Supply Chain, Retail, Healthcare and Government. While traditional tech and crypto organizations are generally male dominated, women have embraced blockchain technology from its inception. This is no more evident than at companies where women occupy many of the blockchain roles and leadership positions. Join this panel to hear three women in blockchain share their experience and their POV on the future of blockchain.
Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
Cloud Storage 2.0 has brought many innovations, including the availability of cloud storage services that are less expensive and much faster than previous generations of cloud storage. Cloud Storage 2.0 has also delivered new and faster methods for migrating your premises storage environment to the cloud and the concept of multi-cloud. This session will provide technical details on Cloud Storage 2.0 and the methods used to efficiently migrate from premises-to-cloud storage. This session will also discuss best practices for implementing multi-cloud environments.
In very short order, the term "Blockchain" has lost an incredible amount of meaning. With too many jumping on the bandwagon, the market is inundated with projects and use cases that miss the real potential of the technology. We have to begin removing Blockchain from the conversation and ground ourselves in the motivating principles of the technology itself; whether it is consumer privacy, data ownership, trust or even participation in the global economy, the world is faced with serious problems that this technology could ultimately help us in at least partially solving. But if we do not unpack what is real and what is not, we can lose sight of the potential. In this presentation, John Bates-who leads data science, machine learning and AI in the Adobe Analytics business unit-will present his 4-prong model of the general areas where Blockchain can have a real impact and the specific use...
FinTech is a disruptive innovation that denotes the adoption of technologies that have changed how traditional financial services work. While FinTech is now embedded deeply into the financial services ecosystem, the rise of digital age has paved way to FinTech 2.0 - which is rolling out innovative solutions through emerging technologies at a disruptive pace while maintaining the tenets of security and compliances. Blockchain as a technology has started seeing pilot adoption in FinTech around trade settlements, fraud detection and would need to sort out few of the technology challenges primarily around transaction time, interoperability with existing systems before being fully adopted into mainstream systems. While private blockchain adoption by Banks have taken shape, the challenge of real time transaction settlement, preventing double spend attacks need to be addressed.
