Skyport Systems Skysecure
Skyport Systems is boosting its security capabilities around hyper-converged infrastructure with the announcement Tuesday of updates to its Skysecure system. The updates include a new self-service capability for application deployment, policy management and troubleshooting. Skyport said the self-service capabilities solve a challenge around application deployment and policy management by giving application owners and DevOps teams the role-based ability to deploy gateways, configuration, and policies, instead of requiring the networking teams to do it.
"IT needs to be able to deliver on business demands and manage security concerns in real time, but there is often a gap between the two," Art Gilliland, CEO of Skyport Systems, said in a statement. "Relying on an old-school firewall to protect application owners from exposing the organization to risk doesn't work. Skyport delivers a cloud-like experience that provides application owners with the guardrails necessary to deploy fast and fail safe, while reducing the need for troubleshooting and the possibility of breaking the entire network."
