Reflex Security Wins VMworld 2008 Best of Show for Its Virtual Management and Security Solution

Independent Team of Experts and Editors Awarded Reflex as Top Solution

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 09/18/08 -- VMworld Booth #335 -- Reflex Security, the pioneer in virtual management and security, today announced its Reflex Virtual Security Center has been awarded Best of Show at VMworld 2008. Reflex Virtual Security Center also won the top pick of Gold in the Security and Virtualization category. Catbird Networks and Altor Networks were finalists in the same category.

The awards were hosted by SearchServerVirtualization.com and chosen by an independent team of judges consisting of experts and editors from SearchServer Virtualization.com and its sister site, SearchVMware.com. Competing solutions were evaluated according to innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.

"We are elated to receive the overall Best of Show award at VMworld 2008," said Pete Privateer, CEO of Reflex Security. "Attendees and influential analysts and editors alike are praising the management and security issues we solve for virtual environments."

"Being the pioneer in virtualization infrastructure management and security, we have been able to evolve and rapidly adapt to the challenge of managing virtual infrastructure," said Hezi Moore, CTO and founder of Reflex Security. "Winning Best of Show at VMworld 2008 validates our unique approach that bridges the gap between virtual management and security."

Just prior to VMworld 2008 Reflex Security changed the name of 'Reflex Virtual Security Center' to 'Reflex Virtual Management Center.' The new name more appropriately reflects the comprehensive virtual infrastructure management that the solution now boasts with its latest award-winning features.

Reflex's Virtualization Management Center is purpose-built for virtualization on a strong security foundation. VMC provides the essential tools needed to efficiently manage and protect virtual servers, desktops, and networks across multiple platforms. Taking a different approach to virtualization management, Reflex links virtualization features such as; infrastructure discovery and visualization, revision control, application/services discovery, network security, performance and policy enforcement, back to security and exposes how changes or events within the virtual environment can impact the entire business.

Virtualization is now taking hold as the next-generation platform for data centers of tomorrow, offering organizations the unique opportunity to build multi-layer visibility, management and control into their virtual environments, right from the start. As a result, companies will save significant time and resources on rework and reconfiguration, and can preemptively provide the high-level of management and security for virtual infrastructure that has taken them so long to build for physical infrastructure.

Reflex Virtualization Management Center (VMC) - Features and Benefits
