KCG and Catbird Offer Virtualization Security Assessment
Expanding Reach of Essential Tool for Customers Moving to Virtual Infrastructure

Knowledge Consulting Group (KCG) announced a partnership with Catbird to provide the Virtual Infrastructure Security Assessment (VSA). Further expanding Catbird’s network of veteran security partners, KCG will deliver the Catbird VSA to help IT administrators identify and close potential gaps in security and compliance created in the move from “P to V”. KCG will provide the VSA to customers in the Department of Defense, Civilian Agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security.

The Catbird VSA offered by KCG is a 30-day virtual infrastructure assessment which includes a thorough security analysis, detailed reports with actionable intelligence, and a comprehensive plan to mitigate risk and protect critical virtual systems, networks, desktops, and processes. It combines traditional security assessment methodologies with unique virtual infrastructure telemetry gathered through Catbird’s stateless, non-invasive V-Agents.

“Virtual data centers are the next focus for KCG’s seasoned team of security consultants”, said Dusty Wince, CEO of KCG. “Virtualization changes everything, security and compliance being no exception. With Catbird’s VSA, we continue to be proactive in ensuring complete protection for our military and government customers, who can rest assured that we will assist them in a seamless transition to this new architecture while meeting the compliance requirements of FISMA, OMB, and agency specific security standards and guidelines.

KCG starts by working closely with their client’s IT staff to establish a scope based on existing controls and best-practices on the physical infrastructure. Once the scope is defined, they deploy Catbird’s V-Security to passively monitor the networks and check specific assets identified in the scope of work. Integration is quick and easy, and the assessment can be up and running in as little as a day. Catbird VSA clients receive their first report within 24 hours of setup. The final report identifies compliance and protection gaps, and contains explicit recommendations based on common best security practices to immediately correct each identified issue.

“We are delighted to welcome KCG as a Catbird partner,” said Edmundo Costa, Catbird VP of Sales and COO. “Experienced security firms are becoming increasingly proactive about ensuring best practices follow their customers’ virtual deployments. KCG’s tremendous experience with the most security-conscious of clients is a great endorsement of Catbird’s approach. We look forward to helping KCG easily bring the same level of protection to their customers’ virtual deployments as they enjoyed in their traditional data centers.”
