Superior, Colo. – May 30, 2012 -- StillSecure®, a managed network security solutions and certified compliance company, today announced that its managed security services are available within the Rackspace Cloud, the open, versatile cloud platform from Rackspace®. Rackspace Cloud customers can now easily secure their cloud servers using StillSecure’s Cloud Network Security Appliance (NSA), a new security service that allows customers to spin up a managed security cloud server within their public cloud infrastructure.

StillSecure will offer and provide support for its Cloud NSA solution to customers via Rackspace’s Cloud Tools Program, along with StillSecure’s Cloud Security Monitoring Service (Cloud SMS), an automated cloud instance-based security solution. Cloud NSA offers organizations the opportunity to easily secure their public cloud servers through a full suite of managed security services, including managed firewall, IDPS, log management, WAF, file integrity monitoring and others. A full list of services is available at Cloud NSA can also deliver StillSecure’s comprehensive PCI compliance service, PCI Complete.

Organizations opting to utilize StillSecure’s managed security services receive the Cloud NSA instance, 24x7 security event monitoring, access to security experts, and a full featured Web-based portal. The CentOS-based NSA image can be easily added to any existing infrastructure.

The Cloud NSA instance becomes a network gateway through which the other cloud instances in a customer’s environment pass all traffic to and from the Internet. Traffic between instances is unaffected. Security is managed in one location, reducing complexity, and making it easy to ensure everything is properly locked down. Contrast that with host-based security solutions, which are managed on a per-host basis, increasing complexity and making it more difficult to audit the environment.

“Rackspace Cloud customers continue to push the envelope of what’s possible in the cloud and as a result, they require more comprehensive security and compliance solutions,” said Ven Shanmugam, Senior Manager, Strategy and Corporate Development. “We are excited to see StillSecure continue to expand its Cloud Tools presence with the addition of their Cloud NSA managed security services, which will help our customers address their security and compliance challenges.”

“Regardless of industry or company size, cloud users continue to tell us that their number one concern is security,” said James Brown, CTO of StillSecure. “By embedding our managed security services within the Rackspace Cloud, we have eliminated the need for customers to add the security layer as an afterthought. We’re making it easy for Rackspace customers to purchase Cloud NSA, and by simplifying the process and adding high quality security services. "
