SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 2, 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 TMC, a global integrated media company, has named Dome9 as a 2011 Cloud Computing Excellence Award winner, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine. Dome9 earned this industry recognition for its leading cloud security firewall management service securing cloud server firewalls and addressing the number one inhibitor to cloud computing adoption -- security.

"Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC is proud to announce Dome9 as a recipient of the first Cloud Computing Excellence Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Dome9 has demonstrated innovation as well as the ability to improve security of the cloud server firewall."

The Cloud Computing Excellence Awards recognize the companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market. Winners of the Cloud Computing Excellence Award were published in the January 2012 issue of Cloud Computing Magazine.

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.

"This distinct industry honor is the latest in a string of recent awards recognizing the security innovation Dome9 brings to cloud computing," said Dave Meizlik, VP of Marketing & Business Development at Dome9. "Dome9 is the only service to automate and centralize cloud server security management across all clouds and across all platforms. This award is a terrific way to start off the year, and is an indicator of the many great things to come for Dome9 in 2012."
