Dome9 Earns's Silver Award for Industry's First Cloud Security Firewall Management Service Securing Virtual Environments Across Cloud Providers

Mountain View, California, UNITED STATES

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 19, 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 it has been named a 2011 Product of the Year Award winner for its innovation and achievement in securing virtual cloud environments. Dome9 is recognized as a Silver Award winner in the Virtualization Security Awards category, which was presented by the editors of TechTarget Inc.'s Data Center and Virtualization Media Group.

The editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts, and consultants, judged today's leading virtualization-related products introduced and shipped between Nov. 1, 2010 and Nov. 1, 2011 in determining the 2011 Products of the Year. The winners were selected according to the following six key criteria: Ease of integration into existing environments; Functionality; Innovation; Manageability; Performance; and Value.

According to TechTarget's, "Securing a virtual infrastructure is always a challenge. Virtual workloads and networks don't always behave the same way as their physical counterparts, so you can't always use the same tools and methods to secure them. Dome9 Security makes firewalling your cloud servers simple, thanks to its clean interface and straightforward set-up process. Updates to the firewall via the Web interface happen rapidly, and the product also configures the host's firewall to automatically handle problems such as port scanning."

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 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.

"We're pleased to receive this honor in recognition of the innovation Dome9 brings to cloud security," said Dave Meizlik, Dome9 VP of Marketing and Business Development. "Dome9 is the only service to automate and centralize virtualization security management across all platforms. This unique capability combines enterprise-grade security with unrivaled simplicity."
