M86 Extends Leading Secure Web Gateway Solution Into the Cloud

SWG Appliance and Web Hybrid Service Utilizes Real-Time Code Analysis to Provide Powerful Defense for Protecting Data and Users in the Remote Corporate Environment

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/01/10 -- RSA Conference® 2010 - Moscone Center - Booth #1151 -- While conventional gateway security products focus on protecting traditional bordered networks, mobile and remote users are often at risk by such an approach and jeopardize introducing an entire organization to a host of potential issues. M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, today announced the general availability of the M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid, which builds on the industry-leading capabilities of its M86 Secure Web Gateway to cost-effectively deliver the same real-time malware protection to mobile workers and branch offices.

With the M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid solution of the M86 Secure Web Gateway, the company becomes the first Web security vendor to release a hybrid solution of an on-premises appliance coupled with a scalable, cost-effective cloud-based security tool enabling unified policy management, reporting, and logging for all users from the central headquarters regardless of their location. It is also the only vendor to offer real-time malware protection in the cloud through M86's unique real-time code analysis technology which blocks zero-day threats which are not caught by traditional AV signatures.

"The ability to utilize a single Web security solution to manage and protect our mobile users from the potential dangers of the Internet is extremely powerful and practical," said Erik Wouterson, senior systems engineer, HMSHost. "The combination of the M86 Secure Web Gateway appliance and M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid solution will allow us to address the security concerns of our remote workers who utilize laptops outside the office as well as computers that are used for our critical business operations at airports. It also helps us address PCI compliance through logging and reports from a single source. The fact that we can manage both the on-site appliance and the cloud service from one central point is great and helps us with providing consistent information to all key stakeholders, including our senior management."

Using its Vital Web Security Suite™, which includes the industry-leading real-time code analysis technology powered by Finjan, the M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid provides enterprises with a cloud-based scanning tool to deliver a consistent security policy and protection regardless of the location of its employees. This unique platform blocks the widest variety of Web-born malware as well as unifies on-premise reporting and log storage for both on-premises and cloud-based usage to meet country-specific regulatory requirements.

With scanning capabilities handled in the cloud, an organization is able to centrally manage security policies, logging and reporting efforts from its corporate office while assuring sensitive information remains guarded. Cloud-based scanners connect to an on-premises policy server for updates and send back logging information so all reporting and administration is handled central from a single interface.

"M86 continues to develop solutions that focus on tackling the significant security challenges businesses face not only today but in the future," said Werner Thalmeier, vice president, product management, M86 Security. "We saw the need from our own customers to protect their off-premises employees and are proud to be the first Web security provider to ship a hybrid on-premises appliance combined with cloud security that benefits a system which supports the corporate network as well as mobile and remote office users."

The M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid allows for the adjustment of policies to provide tighter security while browsing outside the organization as well as the creation of specialized configurations to automatically select the best-suited cloud scanner based on location. Based on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), administrators can easily scale the number of deployed scanners as required. A complete pricing structure is available from M86 Security. The M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid will be available at the end of March.

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
