Reflex Security

Connection to Virtualization


In a broad sense. Reflex's technologies aim to secure VMs in the same way physical servers are secured on the physical network.

Why It's Significant

Reflex Security's Virtual Security Appliance (VSA), which security guru and Unisys' chief architect for security innovation Chris Hoff describes along with BlueLane's software as one of the few emerging virtualization security products worth attention right now, essentially serves a virtual intrusion detection system (IDS). It adds a layer of security policies inside the physical boxes where the VMs live. Some CIOs are investigating Reflex's VSA to block potential threats like hypervisor attacks, among other possible future troubles.
