SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Dome9 Security™, the leading provider of cloud server security management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS), today announced that it has expanded its Dome9 solution availability to the Rackspace open cloud. The Dome9 solution is available for purchase for Rackspace first generation Cloud Servers and Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack® through the enhanced Cloud Tools Marketplace from Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the service leader in cloud computing. This marketplace will serve as a gateway to an open ecosystem of cloud solutions, which will give customers access to a broad range of tools that support Rackspace open cloud.
"We're pleased to make our solutions available through the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace, to bring to market an innovative new approach to cloud security," said Zohar Alon, Co-Founder & CEO of Dome9 Security. "Dome9's cloud security makes security elastic, stopping zero-day attacks, securing remote access, and automating policy management to make cloud servers invisible to hackers."
The Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace is a comprehensive catalog of innovative, third-party developed applications designed for the Rackspace open cloud. Additionally, through the marketplace, customers can browse, review and connect to cloud solutions focused on management, monitoring, application deployment, and a host of other areas. By leveraging OpenStack® technology and developing solutions specifically for Rackspace open cloud, Dome9 provides increased flexibility for customers and helps them avoid vendor lock-in.
Dome9 security works for first generation Cloud Servers and Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack®, and supports both agent and API-based (for OpenStack) deployments. Rackspace open cloud customers can sign up and use Dome9 for free through the new Cloud Tools Marketplace, and leverage Dome9's patent-pending cloud security automation to lockdown cloud servers and centralize policy management across multiple users, servers and clouds.
"We are excited to be working with Dome9 as part of our Cloud Tools Marketplace," said Ven Shanmugam, senior manager of corporate strategy at Rackspace. "As a fast growing cloud security service provider, Dome9 offers Rackspace customers on the Rackspace open cloud centralized and automated policy management for enhanced server security."
Dome9 Security is the only cloud security service to automate cloud security management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and Virtual Private Servers (VPS), across all platforms, including Rackspace. 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. Advanced capabilities, including policy automation and API-based management and the new Dome9 Instant Access are available in Dome9's Business Cloud, which costs 4 cents an hour per server. The Dome9 Lite Cloud is free for an unlimited number of servers.
