Delivers configuration compliance monitoring, and network access control in public and hybrid clouds, and firewall product automatically updates individual host-based firewall
CloudPassage, a security SaaS company, has launched Halo SVM (Server Vulnerability Management) and Halo Firewall products, a server security and compliance products purpose-built for elastic cloud environments.
According to the company, these products deliver accurate server exposure assessment, configuration compliance monitoring, and network access control automating the three most fundamental practices for securing servers in public and hybrid clouds.
Halo SVM functions enable users to maintain continuous exposure and compliance intelligence, even in rapidly growing cloud server farms, the company said.
The Halo Firewall product reportedly controls server attack surfaces by centralising and automating host-based firewall management, the preferred alternative to traditional enterprise perimetre firewalls.
The product provides users with unified cloud-wide firewall policy management from a graphical web front-end, eliminating operational overhead and likely errors associated with manual host-based firewall management.
The company claims 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.
The product also addresses the issues of dynamic public-cloud IP addressing which IaaS (location as a service) providers say is a complication in cloud server firewall management.
