Dome9 Security Named a Finalist for the 2012 Hot Companies Award by Network Products Guide

Cloud Security Innovator Honored for Combining Ultimate in Security and Management for Any Server and Any Cloud

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - Dome9 Security™, the leading provider of cloud security firewall management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS), today announced that Network Products Guide, a leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Dome9 as a finalist for the 7th Annual 2012 Hot Companies Awards. These industry and peer awards honor achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners will be honored in Las Vegas on May 8 during the 7th annual dinner and presentations.

Dome9 Security is the only cloud security service to automate cloud firewall management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and Virtual Private Servers (VPS), across all platforms. Dome9 closes a critical gap in today's cloud computing server security -- ports such as SSH, RDP, and MYSQL left open so administrators can connect to and manage their cloud servers. This common practice leaves servers vulnerable to hackers who need only guess the correct username and password or exploit any protocol vulnerability to gain unauthorized control of a server. Dome9 secures all administrative ports -- for all servers and clouds -- enabling secure access, on-demand. Its key innovation is the ability to provide secure access leasing -- dynamically generated, time-based secure access to cloud servers -- which enables customers to close all server administrative ports by default.

An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.

"It's an honor to be named a Hot Companies Award finalist by Network Products Guide for this esteemed industry and peer award," said Dave Meizlik, Dome9 VP of Marketing and Business Development. "Only Dome9 provides first-of-its-kind protection for cloud infrastructure, fusing security with simplicity for the ultimate in cloud security management."
