CohesiveFT Rolls Out New Management Tool for Virtual Environments

By Paula Bernier November 07, 2014

CohesiveFT, which provides a range of products and services to help enterprises use virtual and cloud computing, is unveiling a new addition to its VNS line with the introduction of VNS3:ms – a management system that presents addresses, routes, rules, and other management information about virtual network elements through a single pane of glass. The new solution will be officially announced next week at AWS re:Invent.

The product, explains CohesiveFT’s Patrick Kerpan, is a response to feedback from customers who said that their networks are getting more complex so they need new and more efficient tools to help manage them.

VNS3:ms allows customers to see role-based authorization, license management, and up to date snapshot records from a single console; manage multiple users’ roles as either read-only or full permissions; and monitor information including key management, log statuses, and VNS3 Manager.

“Enterprises are building out more complex networks across cloud providers, and we know how critical it is to simplify how organizations control and check security risks,” said CohesiveFT Director of Marketing and Products Ryan Koop. “We built VNS3:ms to help customers build the networks they need to federate and keep their cloud resources secure.”

Chicago-based CohesiveFT in August of 20013 rolled out VNS3 in Google Compute Engine. It is designed for enterprises using, or looking to use, GCE to create a VNS3 overlay network to control addressing, protocols, topology and encrypted communications in the cloud. VNS3 offers the benefits of six devices in one: a virtual firewall, router, switch, protocol re-distributor, IPsec concentrator and a scriptable REST API.

And in April of this year, CohesiveFT made VNS3 version 3.5 generally available. The new release features a Docker-powered container engine, Trend Micro Deep Security software integration, and the client-side routing robot.
