Apani, provider of cross-platform server isolation solutions for large enterprises, today announced that EpiForce VM is now available as a virtual appliance free trial. EpiForce VM is the industry’s first software-based solution that secures corporate networks, containing both physical and virtual machines, from a single platform.
EpiForce VM is part of Apani’s security software product family and provides enterprises the ability to adopt a single security solution that will protect mixed data centers. From legacy systems to contemporary platforms and now virtualized environments, Apani’s EpiForce product line is the silver bullet for enterprise IT departments looking to simplify security enforcement and move away from a silo approach to protecting the inside of the corporate network.
The EpiForce VM virtual appliance free trial is a fully functioning version of EpiForce VM designed to install and run as a VMware VI3 appliance. The trial version includes two virtual machines (VMs) with agents pre-installed and license keys for up to 10 agents that can be installed on any physical or virtual Windows or Red Hat Linux platform. A complete video tutorial and training guide is included to help security administrators to configure and test EpiForce VM in their own environment.
EpiForce VM is based on the EpiForce platform v2.5 and initially supports VMware ESX Server 3.0 and 3.5 and uses on-demand policy distribution to offer enterprises the ability to manage and deploy policy to thousands of virtual or physical servers and endpoints with no impact to the network, application or user. EpiForce VM offers a centralized management console that enables a consolidated view to manage all EpiForce VM-protected machines — whether they are virtual or physical, without regard to their physical location on the network. Persistent security policy management allows administrators to utilize VMotion or Virtual Center to migrate EpiForce VM-protected virtual machines from one physical host to another with no disruption of security policy, minimizing unplanned downtime and maximizing operational flexibility.
