Dome9 Security Launches Free Cloud Security For Unlimited Number Of Servers

Dome9 Lite Cloud provides centralized firewall management

SAN MATEO, Calif. – March 7, 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 Dome9 Lite Cloud – 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. Starting today, the service is available at no cost via http://www.dome9.com/LiteCloud.

Today there are more than 30 million cloud 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. For the first time, developers and administrators can simplify security management for an unlimited number of servers, including secure access to any server in any cloud, by using Dome9 absolutely free.

Dome9’s Lite Cloud offers GUI-based firewall management for an unlimited number of Windows and Linux servers and clouds. The free Lite Cloud service makes it simple to scale security to any sized infrastructure and ensure cloud server firewalls are not misconfigured or left unmanaged and exposed to brute force attacks and exploit vulnerabilities. It includes features such as activity logging and auditing, support for multiple administrators, and Dome9 Security Groups; and is fully expandable to Dome9’s Business Cloud service, which offers many expanded capabilities. Using Dome9’s centralized GUI-based approach, IT teams can avoid the hassle of individually managing IP tables or the Windows firewall, and secure access to any cloud server.

“Dome9 is launching the new Lite Cloud free service to ensure that every cloud server has the necessary baseline level of security,” said Dave Meizlik, Dome9 VP of Marketing and Business Development. “Security is the number one concern among cloud adopters, and now Dome9 has taken price out of the equation to ensure every cloud server is secured, with absolutely no limit to the number of servers you can protect.”

Since Dome9 is an on-demand security management service, signup and setup take less than five minutes and do not require a credit card. New customers of Dome9’s free Lite Cloud service receive the enhanced features of Dome9’s Business Cloud service for 30 days, including Dome9’s patent-pending Secure Access Lease technology providing 1-click, time-based access to any server and cloud. Lite Cloud customers can seamlessly upgrade to Dome9’s Business Cloud with just a few clicks and for just 4 cents per hour per server.

Dome9 Security is the only cloud security service to automate cloud firewall management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and Virtual Private Servers (VPS), across all platforms. Dome9 closes a critical gap in today’s cloud computing server security – ports such as SSH, RDP, and MYSQL left open so administrators can connect to and manage their cloud servers. This common practice leaves servers vulnerable to hackers who need only guess the correct username and password or exploit any protocol vulnerability to gain unauthorized control of a server. Dome9 secures all administrative ports – for all servers and clouds – enabling secure access, on-demand. Its key innovation is the ability to provide secure access leasing – dynamically generated, time-based secure access to cloud servers – which enables customers to close all server administrative ports by default.
