Security is the #1 concern among cloud users. And the first line of defense – the firewall – is often the most vulnerable. That’s because customers are forced to leave administrative ports like SSH and remote desktop open so they can connect to and manage their machines, leaving only a username & password for a hacker to defeat.
With Dome9 for GoGrid, cloud customers can self-manage the server’s built-in OS firewall and close all administrative server ports, by default, opening them securely, on-demand. The service automates cloud server secure access to ensure ports are opened only when, who whom, and for as long as is needed. Dome9 empowers GoGrid customers with exceptional cloud security, fractionally lower costs, and with unparalleled ease-of-use.
