CloudPassage Partners with RightScale to Deliver Elastic, Scalable, and Portable Security
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — CloudPassage, Inc., a pioneering security SaaS company, today announced availability with RightScale, the leader in cloud computing management, through the MultiCloud Marketplace. Through this relationship, RightScale users will have instant access to the CloudPassage Halo solution, a security SaaS purpose-built to deliver host-based network security, vulnerability management, server access administration, intrusion detection, and intrusion prevention.
“RightScale is well-known as the foremost leader in IaaS management and automation, and RightScale also delivers a key security function for IaaS: server asset inventory and control,” said Carson Sweet, co-founder and CEO of CloudPassage. “Given that CloudPassage Halo delivers a multitude of security capabilities at the server level, automating Halo deployment through RightScale is a natural and high-value integration.”
Security and compliance remain major challenges that stop companies from experiencing the benefits that the tremendous scalability and agility of cloud hosting provides. Server-level asset control and security management are critical when deploying steady-state applications or temporary workloads in the cloud. Customers deploying cloud infrastructure in many environments are largely on their own to protect themselves, which makes strong and highly automated host-based controls essential.
“The CloudPassage security solution now available in RightScale’s MultiCloud Marketplace offers our customers an additional layer of security that is designed to be lightweight, portable, and elastic,” said Josh Fraser, RightScale VP of Business Development. “CloudPassage Halo is fully automatable and highly scalable, making it a natural fit for RightScale customers. We are excited to have CloudPassage as a member of our ISV Partner Program.”
RightScale offers a fully automated cloud management platform that enables organizations to easily deploy and manage business critical applications across multiple clouds with complete control and portability. RightScale’s ability to enable instant deployment of preconfigured multi-server configurations enables companies to control their public cloud deployments, a critical and otherwise challenging issue for IaaS adopters.
CloudPassage Halo was built from the ground up to deliver security at the virtual machine level, which is the intersection of control, portability, and scale for IaaS. Halo centralizes and automates security management at high scale, and includes an extensive REST API that unlocks extensive integration capabilities.
CloudPassage is a security SaaS company offering the industry’s first and only server security and compliance solutions purpose-built for elastic cloud environments. The company addresses the technical challenges of securing highly dynamic cloud hosting environments where consistent physical location, network control and perimeter security are not guaranteed. The company’s Halo cloud server security product offers high-accuracy server security configuration and vulnerability management, centralized management of host-based firewalls and server account auditing for Linux servers. The innovative capabilities of the Halo platform operate across infrastructure models and seamlessly handle cloud server bursting, cloning, and migration.
Headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., CloudPassage is backed by Benchmark Capital. Gartner, Inc. named CloudPassage one of four “Cool Vendors in Cloud Security Services, 2011.” For more information, please visit: http://www.CloudPassage.com.
