Server exposure assessment, configuration compliance monitoring, and network access control
CloudPassage, a security SaaS provider, has introduced the Halo SVM (Server Vulnerability Management) and Halo Firewall products, the server security and compliance products purpose-built for elastic cloud environments.
These new products provide accurate server exposure assessment, configuration compliance monitoring, and network access control by automating the practices for securing servers in public and hybrid clouds.
The new Halo SVM addresses server vulnerability management needs with the scalability, speed and elasticity needed for cloud server environments.
The SVM is built on the innovative Halo architecture, to provide accurate server exposure assessment with little impact to customers’ server resources.
In addition, the Halo SVM functions enables server configuration points to be assessed in seconds, enabling customers to maintain continuous exposure and compliance intelligence, even in rapidly growing cloud server farms.
The Halo Firewall product controls server attack surfaces by centralising and automating host-based firewall management.
It also provides customers with unified cloud-wide firewall policy management from a graphical web front-end, eliminating the untenable operational overhead and errors associated with manual host-based firewall management.
Further, the Halo Firewall product automatically updates individual host-based firewall configurations whenever cloud servers are added or removed, including server cloning or cloudbursting operations with zero intervention by system administrators.
