The virtualization startup Reflex Systems may have changed its go-to-market strategy, focusing more on virtual infrastructure management than on security, but it didn’t forget its roots.

Exactly one year ago the company hired a former ISS executive, Preston Futrell, as new Vice President of Sales, in September 2009 launched a new version of its new flagship product that features a VMware VMsafe-certified policy compliance enforcement engine, and now it closes a deal with TippingPoint, a well-known player security market.

TippingPoint, a subsidiary of 3Com, which was recently acquired by HP, offers a popular line of intrusion prevention systems (IPS).
The partnership allows TippingPoint to include Reflex VMC in its Security Virtualization Framework, a bundle of products (Digital Vaccine Labs, vController, Security Management System and of course the IPS appliances) that enforces segmentation between virtual machines and supports separation of duties between the different teams that manage the virtual infrastructure.
