Hosting.com Wraps a Security Blanket around the Cloud

by Trusted Contributor on ‎06-04-2012 09:00 AM

Hosting.com is a full-service cloud hosting company that offers its customers self-service, on-demand capabilities for application provisioning and management. It’s also a company that prides itself on providing the highest levels of availability, responsiveness, recovery, and security to its customers.

 

In an effort to extend their defense strategy down to the hypervisor level, Hosting.com turned to Juniper Networks. They knew they needed to offer the type of security that was built specifically for the virtualization and cloud environment so that secure multi-tenancy and compliance would be both achievable and auditable.  Hosting.com wanted to offer cloud tenants a security blanket and, with Juniper’s vGW Virtual Gateway offering, that’s exactly what they were able to do.

 

Hosting.com’s partnership with Juniper delivers a truly elegant security solution that includes fully automated provisioning and policy management through a single interface in Hosting.com’s Customer Portal.

 

The innovations inherent in a purpose-built, hypervisor-based security solution for cloud environments gives Juniper’s vGW and, by extension, Hosting.com the ability to:

 

  • Isolate firewall processing and provide granular visibility on a per-customer/per-VM basis.
  • Deploy the firewall to existing VMs without any service impact.
  • Group disparate VMs into logical zones that span multiple physical hosts.
  • Offer fast-path processing and sustain throughput for highest performance.
  • Provide a simple user interface that facilitates policy management and administration.
  • Decouple network toplogy from security policy enforcement, providing far greater flexibility than traditional in-line solutions.

Together, Hosting.com and Juniper offer a compelling solution that lets cloud adopters worry less about risks and focus more on leveraging the benefits of using the cloud.
