MENLO PARK, Calif. Jan. 26, 2011 security for elastic cloud servers
"Customers of our on-demand, enterprise-level email and social media marketing solutions have high standards for protecting their data and supporting their compliance needs," said Tim McQuillen CIO and co-founder of StrongMail. "CloudPassage allows us to clearly communicate in exact technical terms how we secure our environments and deliver compliance verification as frequently as needed."
The ability to create new servers in the cloud within seconds means IT departments can be faster and more agile, but it creates huge security problems. New copies of servers will duplicate all of the vulnerabilities and exposures that already exist, resulting in an increased attackable surface area on a company’s cloud server farm.
Most compromises can be prevented by simple configuration changes, software patching or better firewall policies; but in an elastic cloud environment, the rate of growth and change are difficult for companies to manage. Prior to CloudPassage, vulnerability management and firewall configurations had to be individually managed on every new cloned or bursted server.
