“If you think compliance is expensive, try non-compliance.” - Former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty

In the wake of increased cyber attacks, ransomware, and heightened regulations, our customers across the globe are scrambling to safeguard their data, applications, and networks. Compliance-risk exposure among highly-regulated organizations continues to rise as a result of the sheer volume of regulatory change and technology changes, as well as many regulators’ assertiveness in enforcing both new and pre-existing regulatory requirements. 

Compliance is definitely a journey - one with potholes, mismarked signs, and, if you're lucky, a new paved, smooth road that makes the trip a bit more enjoyable. With our innovative approach to software-based segmentation and micro-segmentation, we knew we could make part of our customers’ journey a smoother one. Our initial focus is on PCI DSS with a new standard 3.2 just becoming fully operational last month. 

To learn more about vArmour’s software-based segmentation and micro-segmentation approach to satisfy specific PCI DSS 3.2 requirements in virtual and cloud environments, register for the upcoming vArmour and Coalfire webinar on December 8, 2016 at 10am PT.

Today, Coalfire announced that it has completed an independent assessment of vArmour DSS Distributed Security System against PCI DSS 3.2. Simply put, vArmour DSS can be implemented to not only provide visibility into workload and application behaviors in highly virtualized environments but also maintain a secure network effectively. According to the technical assessment, “vArmour DSS’s segmentation has the ability to enforce security policy between any and all workloads while maintaining security policy enforcement in environments with frequent, automatic vMotion of workloads. Security policies can be created to enforce access control for the data center resources where policies define how communication occurs between workloads or zones. This provides the capability to isolate each workload individually on the network and apply a set of policies relevant to that specific workload.”
