SAN MATEO, Calif. – April 25, 2012 – Dome9 Security™, the leading provider of cloud security firewall management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS), today announced the availability of Dome9 Instant Access for Google Chrome, a new browser-based application enabling one-click secure access to any server and any cloud for Google Chrome users.
Today there are more than 30 million cloud and virtual private servers in use, and most are vulnerable to attack because their built-in security stacks such as the host firewall are too difficult to manage. Dome9 makes cloud server security manageable by delivering a GUI-based firewall management service to secure an unlimited number of Windows and Linux servers in any virtual private, cloud, collocated, and hosted environment.
Now, for the first time, developers and administrators can get secure, instant access to any server in any cloud with just the click of the new Dome9 Instant Access button within their Google Chrome browser. Simply by clicking the Dome9 button in Google Chrome, customers instantly get secure, time-based access to any defined set of services and servers in any cloud, based on their allowed cloud access rights. The Dome9 Chrome App is now available at the Google Chrome Web Store free of charge at
“The Dome9 solution is fabulous – it saves us an enormous amount of time in setting up secure server access for clients, and it also provides us usage audit trails,” said Jonathan Hunt, president of FundNET Design, a provider of communication and information technology for the financial services industry. “Dome9’s integration with Chrome saves even more time, because it gives us instant secure access to our servers, and saves us from another login. Dome9 and the new Instant Access saves us time, makes us more secure, and increases our efficiency. It pays for itself every day.”
Customers pair the Dome9 Chrome application with their Dome9 account using their unique API key available within their Dome9 account. Once securely paired, Dome9 Instant Access allows users to select the servers, services, and time period for default access, and instantly get secure access only to those servers they are authorized to access. While each authorized developer and administrator has secure, instant access to their servers, there is no added complexity or cost – it’s all done with just the click of a button, directly in each users browser.

“Our new instant access app for Google Chrome makes it unbelievably easy to get secure access to any server, on-the-fly,” said Zohar Alon, Dome9 Co-Founder and CEO. “It installs in less than a minute, and incorporates our patent-pending Secure Access Lease technology with new auto-notifications and lease extensions. This new functionality marries security and simplicity to make any server virtually invisible to hackers, yet accessible when, for whom, and only as long as is needed.”
Dome9 Instant Access is included in the Dome9 Business Cloud, and for the first 30-days is included in the Dome9 Lite Cloud. The recently announced Lite Cloud is a powerful new free cloud security service that provides centralized firewall management for an unlimited number of servers and clouds in virtual private, cloud, collocated, and hosted environments.
