Security begins at the firewall and Cloud services provider Dome9 Security is looking to provide comprehensive firewall capabilities around cloud services. This Network Computing article looks at firewall management responsibilities for access to cloud servers that allows servers to be completely locked down, but still fully manageable.


 

"They say that security begins at the firewall – whether or not that is actually true depends upon the security posture of a business . However, if you do rely on a firewall, especially a software firewall or one integrated into an OS, you have to make sure that it is configured and managed properly – something that is getting harder to do as firewall policies, threats and intrusions become more complex. Add to that the fact that services and data are starting to live more and more in the cloud and are becoming virtual, and you have a potential recipe for data leakage, account compromises and unauthorized access.

"Cloud services provider Dome9 Security is looking to provide comprehensive firewall capabilities around those cloud services and bring some control to the security of private, public and hybrid clouds. In essence, Dome9 is a 'cloud server firewall', basically a cloud security service that provides complete control over access to a hosted cloud service. The product claims to keep all administrative ports closed on a hosted server, without denying access and control of the servers functions. What’s more, Dome9 claims it can dynamically open any port, on-demand, any time, for anyone, and from anywhere – allowing controlled access to resources."
