FiberCloud Virtual Firewalls Aid Security, Cloud Workloads
FiberCloud, a provider of cloud, co-location and connectivity services, announced the addition of virtual firewall capability to its cloud server solutions. The goal is to give its Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows and Linux cloud server customers more secure and customized connections across multiple cloud servers, thus enabling “full control” over network traffic.
The virtual firewalls provide failover and the opportunity to move data within customers’ own private server networks; the company also provides a virtual private network (VPN) option with cloud servers for secure connectivity to customers’ internal networks. According FiberCloud, this gives customers a choice between the virtual firewalls and VPN protocols for managing information across cloud server networks.
“We think that security and flexibility are crucial to our cloud server products,” said Susan DeFlorio, COO at FiberCloud, in the press release. “By adding this new virtual firewall option to our cloud servers, we’re empowering customers with greater choices and greater freedom to access and move information across multiple cloud servers.”
This past February, FiberCloud announced a boost to its managed Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint offerings for customers and resellers with an upgrade to the 2010 versions of both, with the benefits of enhanced business continuity, mobility and security upgrades without an increase in fees.
