MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- NetCitadel, Inc., a pioneer in technology">Security Orchestration and the first company to centralize network security intelligence across a variety of networking environments and vendors' equipment, today introduced its OneControl Security Orchestration Platform. OneControl makes existing security infrastructure more intelligent and responsive, enabling network security policy changes to be accurately implemented across cloud, virtual and physical environments in minutes rather than days or weeks.
Today, IT is challenged with delivering agility, security and compliance in increasingly dynamic data centers and networking environments that include virtualization and cloud. Until today, solutions required manual changes that are time-consuming, static, and susceptible to human errors; and fail to enforce consistent policies across dynamic and heterogeneous cloud, virtual and physical environments. Now, enterprises can confidently adapt to changing business needs with centralized security intelligence that is integrated with their cloud and virtualization environments. This results in an accurate, context-aware security infrastructure that is dynamically synchronized with the latest network state, enabling organizations to securely take advantage of the agility that cloud and virtualization have to offer.
With today's OneControl introduction, NetCitadel also announced its formal company launch, addressing gaps in today's cloud, virtual and physical networks by making network security infrastructure agile. With its patent-pending technology platform, the company is laying the foundation for the future of technology/">Software Defined Security.

"Security policies must shift from hardware-based attributes to logical and context-based attributes, such as applications, virtual machine (VM) identities, user or group identities, and sensitivity of content," writes Neil MacDonald, principal analyst at Gartner, in a recent report. "A common misconception with the shift to software-defined security is that all security controls must move to software. For security, the primary goal must be to ensure that the appropriate security controls automatically remain in place, regardless of where an application moves, whether on-premises or to public clouds, and without requiring re-architecting security controls."

The OneControl Security Orchestration Platform is a virtual appliance that automatically orchestrates security intelligence by mapping context about cloud, virtual and physical environments to a wide range of security infrastructure and vendor devices. It is the industry's only solution that separates the control plane from Policy Enforcement Points (PEPs), transforming existing security infrastructure into a context-aware environment that transcends security silos and adapts to dynamic changes across cloud, virtual and physical environments. This context-awareness delivers intelligence about workloads from sources such as VMware® vCenter and Amazon AWS to security infrastructure such as Cisco® ASA and Juniper® SRX devices, all through a single pane of glass that enables consistent security policies and enforcement across heterogeneous environments.
