Comprehensive security for virtual environments.

Stonesoft Networks : 29 February, 2008  (New Product)
StoneGate Virtual security offers a unified approach to the management of risk over virtual networking environments.
Stonesoft introduces a comprehensive StoneGate Security Solution for VMware virtual environments. The first virtual appliance, StoneGate Firewall/VPN, protects the network and ensures business continuity in both virtual and physical network environments. The virtual StoneGate Security Solution stands out through its unified management and multiple deployment possibilities, allowing organisations to significantly reduce the costs and environmental impact of their IT infrastructure.

"The StoneGate Security Solution for VMware virtual environments stands out through its flexible deployment possibilities and advanced manageability", said Pentti Lehtinen, director, product management at Stonesoft. "Whereas regular, hardware-based firewalls do not run in virtual environments, StoneGate Firewall/VPN, as well as other virtual StoneGate appliances can be deployed in virtual as well as regular network environments. Moreover, all virtual StoneGate appliances can be managed with the same centralised management as the other components in the network security solution. This brings organisations significant cost savings, flexibility and sustainability."

Virtual appliances provide organisations enhanced manageability and flexibility: new machines can be easily created and redundant ones destroyed. Moreover, they help organisations to reduce the environmental burden of their IT infrastructure through improved energy-efficiency and significant reductions in the need for server room space and hardware equipment.

The virtual StoneGate Firewall/VPN appliance functions like a regular firewall, protecting the servers in the virtual network, preventing attacks and securing data communications with multiple parallel Virtual Private Networks (VPN). The appliance can be used both in virtual machines and physical network environments.

StoneGate Security Solution for virtual environments is particularly attractive for Managed Service Providers (MSP), enabling them to manage several customer networks and appliances with just one server. Moreover, the virtual appliances can be installed at any location in the virtual networks, so they can be used to protect the traffic between consolidated servers in virtual environments. With StoneGate Management Center, the corporate security policy can be consistently enforced in both the virtual and physical network environments.

Stonesoft has recently entered the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program.

The StoneGate Security Solution for VMware virtual environments will be complemented by a virtual IPS appliance later this year.
