As a consulting Cloud and Virtualization Architect Iben Rodriguez is working to shift network testing functions out of the test lab and closer to the developers and operators of Enterprise Data Centers. Trained in Agile, ITIL, SOX, PCI-DSS, ISO27000 he develops Testing Solutions for Businesses that leverage Cloud Technology.
Iben started his security career maintaining the data communication systems used by military reconnaissance, followed by stints in the global pharmaceutical and fabless semiconductor industries. Over the past 10 years, Rodriguez has assisted executive teams from both enterprise and government organizations in his roles as a cloud solution strategist and security architect at leading companies such as AT&T, Ericsson, Huawei, Juniper, Cisco, Brocade, CA, Spirent, VMware, and eBay.
Since 2014 Iben has been working with the OPNFV community to determine the best practices for networking and security when designing an automated virtual testing laboratory based on OpenStack. The Spirent Virtual Cloud Test Lab is a prototype version of this reference design. This lab was used to produce test reports like the Brocade Vyatta 5600 80Gbps done for Intel’s Network Builders.
As a volunteer for the Center for Internet Security, Rodriguez initiated and maintains the Benchmark Standards for hardening hypervisors used for virtual workloads. As part of the Virtualization Security Roundtable podcast series, he also works closely with vendors to stay ahead of the latest products and trends in cloud computing.
