Key Highlights

Protection in virtual environments – Cyberoam virtual security appliances offer inter-VM traffic scanning along with granular firewall and security policies enforcement, eliminating the blind spots created by hardware security appliances in virtual networks. In cases where hypervisor management console is placed in live production virtual environment due to lack of segmentation within virtual environments, virtual networks are prone to attacks. Cyberoam enables administrators to segment Hypervisor Management Console into the DMZ and route all traffic through the virtual security appliance for security against hypervisor vulnerabilities. The IPS and WAF features within the network security appliance ensure threat-free traffic and security from vulnerabilities in the virtualized web applications. In case of collapsed DMZ that results in loss of separation of duties, unlike in case of external security solutions where the solutions are placed on separate physical systems that create separation of duties by default, Cyberoam virtual security appliance allows role-based administration, allowing separation of duties. The appliance offers visibility and user-based access control in the virtualized environment, ensuring security in Zero Trust Networks.

Comprehensive virtual security – Cyberoam virtual network security appliances consolidate multiple security functions viz. Firewall, VPN, Anti-Spam, Gateway Anti-Virus, IPS, WAF, Web Filtering, Application Visibility & Control and much more, in a single virtual appliance.

Compliance Management – By securing traffic and data between and around the virtual entities, Cyberoam virtual security appliances help in meeting the regulatory requirements. In-depth logs and reports of activities in the virtual networks help organizations display compliance.

Centralized Management of virtual and physical appliances – The virtual Cyberoam Central Console allows organizations to manage their physical and virtual infrastructure over a centralized management console. The virtual CCC ensures centralized, consistent and quick security actions across networks.

Centralized Logging and Reporting – Cyberoam iView, available as software, offers in-depth logs and reports on activities in the virtual networks.
