Patents cover new approaches to segment virtualized assets through distributed security

Carr & Ferrell LLP announced today that vArmour, Inc., the data center security company, is rapidly adding to its existing patent portfolio. With four patents already issued by the U.S Patent and Trademark Office and 14 additional patent applications recently filed, vArmour’s expanding portfolio will cover the micro-segmention of virtualized and physical workloads enabled by vArmour’s distributed security technology to protect enterprise’s most critical assets – their data.

“We are very excited to represent vArmour during this next phase of growth,” Carr & Ferrell attorney John Ferrell said. “They have structured a substantial patent portfolio built around a framework of inter-related, individual patents that will provide crucial protection for vArmour’s revolutionary new approach to data center security.”

Virtualization and cloud computing are blurring the lines of the perimeter. Traditional perimeter security is no longer enough to protect companies from advanced cyber attacks. Modern attackers move laterally inside the data center, necessitating a new breed of security controls to stop them.

“Through micro-segmentation and distributed security, vArmour is transforming how enterprises and service providers protect critical assets across their physical, virtual and cloud environments. We deliver contextual insights and dynamic controls to prevent and remediate advanced cyber attacks, allowing businesses to safely realize the rewards of moving to the cloud,” said vArmour Co-Founder and CTO, Michael Shieh.

“Enterprises and service providers benefit significantly from our patented security technology, providing them with simplified operations, accurate threat detection, IT agility, and better cloud economics,” continued Roger Lian, Co-Founder and VP of Engineering at vArmour.

vArmour was founded on the idea that security needed to be turned on its head – the rise of the cloud, virtualization and the Internet of Things had pushed the limits on existing systems. In a world without perimeters, security needed to follow other infrastructure components and become a software-based, distributed system. By moving the security controls to protect each individual workload, assets can be micro-segmented. With its issued and pending patents, vArmour’s distributed system enforces business policies on every asset in the environment, regardless of the workload’s location or movement in the data center.
