Cloud services provider FiberCloud announced on Monday that it has added virtual firewall options to its cloud server solutions. With the new firewall features, both Windows and Linux Cloud customers will be able to manage secure and custom connections across multiple cloud servers.
This news comes a month after FiberCloud launched a division to address the cloud needs of SMBs, Cloud City Hosting.
Web hosts that are part of FiberCloud’s reseller program will be able to offer additional security through the new offering. Last year, cloud computing provider Digital Seattle joined its reseller program. Web hosts have also deployed third-party firewall security solutions recently like ThreatSTOP to help secure networks.
FiberCloud says its customers will be able to have full control over network traffic with the virtual firewall feature. Virtual Firewalls enable customers to form secure connections while managing traffic, providing failover and the ability to move data between their private network of cloud servers.
Customers can also ensure secure connectivity from cloud servers to internal networks with a Virtual Private Network option.
“We think that security and flexibility are crucial to our cloud server products,” Susan DeFlorio, COO at FiberCloud said in a statement. “By adding this new Virtual Firewall option to our cloud servers, we’re empowering customers with greater choices and greater freedom to access and move information across multiple cloud servers.”
Virtual Firewalls can be added to any FiberCloud cloud server without installing software on the server itself.
