Catbird Partners With Trapezoid

Combined solution will leverage Trapezoid Marker to meet 24 FISMA controls

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA – (February 26, 2014) Catbird, the leader in security policy automation and enforcement for private clouds and virtual infrastructures, announced today it has entered into a partnership with Trapezoid, an enterprise cloud cyber security company focused on the development and deployment of dynamic security and compliance postures based on platform integrity data, including Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (TXT). The combined solution dramatically increases security and compliance in the key areas of asset inventory, logical segmentation, continuous monitoring, and policy enforcement.

"Customers have been asking for root-of-trust capabilities to meet dozens of requirements in FISMA, FedRAMP " said Edmundo Costa, CEO of Catbird. "Trapezoid integration delivers unique security and audit capabilities to monitor integrity, boundary and trust information to meet FISMA Controls such as SC-11: Trusted Path and PE-18: Location of Information Systems. Catbird and Trapezoid are the only vendors able to offer continuous monitoring and enforcement to FISMA, FedRAMP and other leading standards for virtual and private cloud infrastructure."

"I am very excited that we are bringing together Catbird's granular understanding of the virtual network environment with Trapezoid's Intelligent Views of the integrity and identity of cloud platform infrastructure," said Robert Rounsavall, President & Cofounder of Trapezoid, Inc. "Catbird's comprehensive security, compliance, and policy enforcement engine leverages Trapezoid's integrity, boundary, and trust events for real-time enforcement actions and alerts to policy violations creating mechanisms for potential remediation actions based on the integrity and trust degradation of the cloud platform that is hosting the assets Catbird is monitoring," continued Rounsavall. "Catbird users can now diagram, configure, and secure their Catbird TrustZones not only by data flow, but also by the trust, integrity, and location of all systems and networks in the cloud provided by the Trapezoid Trust Visibility Engine."

The combined solution will leverage Trapezoid® Marker, to meet twenty four FISMA controls across eight control areas by enabling workloads to be securely migrated among hybrid cloud environments and distributed data centers. With it, Catbird can take into account platform attestation, safer hypervisor launch, and geo-location restrictions to enhance security and compliance enforcement. Trapezoid also enhances Catbird's visualization, automation, and reporting of virtual infrastructure by providing new integrity, boundary, and trust data.

For more information, please visit both Catbird and Trapezoid at the RSA Conference 2014, February 24-28 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Catbird can be found in Booth #2505 and at the session "Shifting Roles in the SDDC"; Trapezoid can be found in Intel North Hall, Booth #3213, Kiosk #13, Demo Location #19.
