Alcide Deliver, Demos Data Center and Cloud Operations Security Platform

April 05, 2018

The complexity of today’s business application and related IT resources has prompted the introduction of new platforms that can more easily control, manage, and secure them. Alcide is among the companies providing new solutions on this front. And this week, at AWS Summit in San Francisco, it’s demonstrating its newly available Data Center and Cloud Operations Security Platform.

Alcide CEO and co-founder Ranny Nachmias previously worked at Amdocs, Dynamic Yield, and LivePerson. CTO and co-founder Gadi Naor previously worked at Altor Networks, and CheckPoint, and was co-founder and CTO of Fitfully.

“Today, many enterprises find themselves operating multi-account, multi-compute data centers, with different teams that usually work in silos,” the company notes. “Alcide’s platform provides visibility to cloud-native threat protection and network policy enforcement, providing enterprises with a wide and deep perspective. It reduces the number of tools needed and eliminates the blind spots between complex infrastructure and applications.”

This full-stack cloud ops security platform, as Alcide refers to it, breaks down the silos between DevOps, engineering, and security teams. And it enables organizations to use a single-pane interface (with drill-down capabilities) to control  and protect bare metal, container, serverless, virtual machine data center environments, infrastructure, instances, and workloads.

This sounds a lot like what Gartner and others are calling AIOps solutions. The research firm says AIOps platforms combine big data and machine learning to support IT operations. And it believes that by 2022, 40 percent of large enterprises will use such systems and technologies to support and partially replace existing monitoring, service desk, and automation processes and tasks.

Gartner says the AOIps marketplace includes BMC, Correlsense, Corvil, Elastic, ExtraHop, FixStream, HPE, IBM, ITRS, Logtrust, Logz.io, Loom Systems, Moogsoft, Rocana, SAP, Scalyr, SIOS Technology, Splunk, Sumo Logic, and VNT Software.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
