StillSecure Offers Virtualized Managed Security Services for Both VMware and Xen Cloud Environments

Partners and Customers Can Now Choose From Multiple Platforms and Services to Secure Private and Public Clouds

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - April 12, 2010) - StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure solutions, today announced that its ProtectPoint virtual security services are now available for both VMware® and Xen® environments. No matter which platform is chosen, partners and customers can easily and cost effectively secure their virtual environments with StillSecure virtualized security solutions.

StillSecure offers two solutions to secure the virtual infrastructure, including a virtual machine (VM) designed for single-tenant environments and a VM designed specifically for multi-tenant environments such as data centers, cloud providers, or large-scale enterprises with internal cloud infrastructures, called ProtectPoint VSS™. ProtectPoint VSS allows separate security policies and configurations to be defined on a per tenant basis, and supports high availability clustering to protect each VM no matter where it is hosted in a service provider's dynamically changing virtual environment. In addition, ProtectPoint VSS provides packet inspection using the VMsafe™ API so customers can monitor VM-to-VM traffic within the virtual switch. All services are backed by StillSecure's SAS-70 Type II certified security operations center (SOC), which performs all security monitoring and management for a low monthly or annual fee.

"Cloud computing is all the buzz yet customers don't always fully understand the security risks that are inherent in the virtual world," said Frank Mobley, CEO of Immedion, LLC. "StillSecure's new virtualized security solutions for the VMware and Xen platforms allow us to provide customers with a flexible, cost-effective solution for securing the virtual environment. We can take advantage of new sales opportunities while saving time and money during customer deployments."

"StillSecure continues to focus on meeting the security needs of our partners and customers. As they rapidly move to virtual and cloud environments, StillSecure provides the security technology and know-how necessary to meet the unique challenges these networks present," said David Greenstein, Chief Architect at StillSecure. "StillSecure's managed solutions offer a more cost effective, easy-to-implement, and secure alternative than most do-it-yourself strategies."
