Catbird Secures Investment From Medina Capital
Investment Aimed at Accelerating Development and Growth of Software-Defined Security

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Catbird®, the leader in security and compliance for virtualized and private cloud data centers, today announced that it has secured an investment from Medina Capital, a strategic growth equity firm focused on the IT infrastructure sector.

"Software-based solutions are reshaping the way data centers operate, and we feel Catbird's innovative product set is ideally positioned to help customers effectively navigate this transition," said Manuel D. Medina, Founding and Managing Partner of Medina Capital. "Within the next five years, software-defined security will largely replace physical appliances as the de facto approach to securing next-generation datacenters. This approach will provide better protection, scalability and compliance capabilities, thereby acelerating the transition to software-defined data centers."

Silicon Valley-based Catbird is the leading company delivering an entirely software-based security solution, vSecurity®, built specifically for the new software-defined data center. Catbird's software utilizes the power and architecture of virtual and cloud systems to deploy network security controls that are more agile and precise than physical network appliances.

"The timing of Medina Capital's investment and their strategic guidance will be key to the continued development of vSecurity," said Edmundo Costa, Catbird's CEO. "Additionally, leveraging their vast experience in working with global enterprises and government agencies, as well as developing leading-edge products, will be instrumental to our continued growth."

Catbird's vSecurity integrates virtualized network security directly with the hypervisor, orchestrating security data for complete virtualization threat management. With more virtualized controls than any other product in the market, Catbird's solution monitors and enforces a range of regulatory standards including PCI, HIPAA and NIST. vSecurity also provides positive assurance of control, an essential requirement for any regulated enterprise or agency.
