SoftLayer Launches High-Availability Dedicated Firewalls

July 19, 2011 by · Comments Off on SoftLayer Launches High-Availability Dedicated Firewalls 

Hosting ServicesDALLASSoftLayer® Technologies, the innovation leader in Cloud, Dedicated, and Managed Hosting, today announced the introduction of High-Availability Dedicated Firewalls to its lineup of security solutions. SoftLayer customers have the option of adding this high level of protection as a new service for current or new Cloud, Dedicated, or Virtual systems that share the same VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network).

“High-Availability Dedicated Firewalls provide our customers with greater peace of mind,” said Matt Chilek, Vice President of Systems Development and Technology at SoftLayer. “Unfortunately, malicious network activity can happen to anyone, so we’re dedicated to providing our customers with the best protection possible so they can focus on their business and not worry about the security of their infrastructure.”

High-Availability Dedicated Firewalls go beyond protecting servers from malicious activity. The service includes a secondary physical firewall for failover protection, and automatic fall back when the primary firewall regains service.

SoftLayer’s firewalls stand between the entire VLAN and the Public Network, analyzing and filtering all network traffic. With the company’s simple-to-use Customer Portal, customers can easily configure the firewall settings for the entire VLAN as well as for individual computing systems. The Portal also provides a library of templates for applying protection rules and configurations for specific applications. Current templates include mail and Web services, Parallels® Plesk, and cPanel.

High-Availability Dedicated Firewalls are the newest addition to SoftLayer’s selection of firewall security services, which includes Dedicated Hardware Firewalls and Standard Firewalls. All can be provisioned on demand and without service interruption through the company’s leading Customer Portal. The extra security of these firewalls complements SoftLayer’s effort to provide further individualization for each customer’s network security strategy to help them achieve even greater uptime, accessibility, and control.
