Hostway Launches Industry's First Managed Network Security Solution Based On “Hosts Protected” through Partnership with StillSecure
New Model Based on “Hosts Protected” Provides Budget Constrained SMBs with Cost-Effective, Network-based Security Services
Chicago, Illinois and Superior, CO, December 7, 2011 — Hostway Corporation, a leading infrastructure-as-a-service and cloud hosting service provider, today announced an expanded selection of data and network security solutions for customers through a partnership with StillSecure. Hostway has added eight new standard security packages ranging from economical multi-tenant options to solutions designed to support PCI compliance initiatives.
- An introductory package providing an advanced network firewall, SSL VPN remote access, patch management and vulnerability scanning utilizing a multi-tenant deployment model, which allows multiple customers to be hosted on a single appliance platform with customer data physically separated to ensure confidentiality and security. Pricing for the managed security solution is based on the number of hosts protected. This new model to security in the hosting industry will bring high quality security to those with tight budgets.
- Other multi-tenant and dedicated bundles including various combinations of intrusion detection and/or prevention, log management, file integrity monitoring and a web application firewall for Hostway customers needing to block attacks on their website, web applications or e-commerce.
- StillSecure’s PCI Complete solution featuring multiple auditor-approved services, policies and procedures to help merchants comply with the managed security sub-requirements defined in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
“Security is at the forefront of nearly every infrastructure discussion we have with clients and prospects. Prior to this release, most of those conversations diverged on security “needs” and security budgets,” said Aaron Hollobaugh, Vice President of Marketing. “Hostway can now offer flexible, cost-effective managed security services that are market driven and instantly fill a security gap within the managed hosting marketplace.”
In early 2012, Hostway will extend their partnership with StillSecure to provide comprehensive cloud security solutions for both private and public cloud (FlexCloud™) hosting. The managed solutions will support physical, virtual and multi-tenant environments, solve the unique security gaps created by virtual environments, and help Hostway customers comply with the numerous regulations surrounding audit and logging controls.
“Hostway requires a proven partner to deliver best-in-class managed security solutions for each of their critical segments – colo, dedicated, and cloud,” said Rajat Bhargava, President and CEO of StillSecure. “Our managed network security solutions are a perfect fit for Hostway because they are already auditor-approved and monitored continuously by our team of security experts. Such an enhanced security level will help Hostway address escalating concerns around network security much more effectively, as well as provide a solution set to customers that is comprehensive and cost effective.”
"StillSecure and Hostway are working to make security affordable for those customers who previously couldn't justify the added expense," said Wendy Nather, Research Director for the enterprise security practice at 451 Research. "It brings security more closely within reach of companies below the Security Poverty Line."
Hostway’s new managed security services start at $39/month with premium and customizable services available to suit each organization’s needs. More information on these services can be found at www.hostway.com/managedsecurity.
