Security for Cloud and Virtual Environments
vSecurity consist of two elements: A virtual appliance, deployed inside each VMware or Xen host (NOT on each virtual machine) and a Catbird Control Center typically deployed in the Security Operations Center (SOC). A Catbird appliance is the eyes and ears of the virtual network, delivering the security protection from inside the virtual host. This applicance reports back to the Control Center, where the management and expert system reside.
The Catbird Control Center provides a single enterprise-wide view of the security and compliance state of the virtual infrastructure. The Control Center is responsible for policy-based analytics and compliance workflow and reporting.

I reviewed what you wrote, and their website. It does look interesting. I think I will contact them, and try and get a free download. If I learn anything I will update you and the group. Fingers crossed. Let's see if I am able to do this. I may have to borrow a bigger machine. Not sure.
