CloudPassage Unveils Cloud Security Specific Range Of Products

CloudPassage : 28 January, 2011  (New Product)
A number of announcements were made yesterday as CloudPassage emerges to offer security products that are specific to cloud computing servers
CloudPassage has emerged from stealth mode to unveil the industry’s first and only products specifically designed from the ground up to provide security for elastic cloud servers. Now, with CloudPassage, companies can manage their own cloud security by making use of a single solution that is purpose-built for the cloud and delivers multiple layers of defense for cloud servers.

“Servers in the cloud need to be self-protecting and autonomous to survive the higher exposure level to threats and vulnerabilities,” said Srivats Sampath, founder and former CEO of, and an investor in CloudPassage. “Elastic cloud security from CloudPassage is the go-to-security solution for any organization that needs to scale and secure cloud servers.”

CloudPassage also introduced its new product line of cloud security products.

“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.

“Other server protection solutions that work in public clouds require painful deployment and management contortions,” said Carson Sweet, co-founder and CEO CloudPassage. “Because dozens of new servers can be created in seconds, through cloning and bursting, vulnerability and firewalling need to be done differently in the cloud; they need to be elastic.”

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.

CloudPassage technology is built from the ground up to provide elastic security by automatically securing cloud servers when they burst or are cloned. Once security is set up on one server, all copies of that server created later will automatically adopt those security controls.  CloudPassage customers benefit from greatly reduced attack surfaces, lower risk of compromise and improved compliance.

The visionary behind CloudPassage is co-founder and CEO Carson Sweet, a pioneer in information security, who previously served as the Principal Solutions Architect at RSA’s financial industry practice, working with companies such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America, among many others. The CloudPassage team includes: Talli Somekh, co-founder and executive chairman, who has extensive venture experience and expertise in the commercialization of open source software and its transition to SaaS computing; Brent Bilger, Vice President of Marketing, who has more than 25 years of marketing experience – most of it in networking and security; and Vitaliy Geraymovych, Vice President of Engineering, who has extensive technology development and commercialization lifecycle experience.
