Hostway Extends Partnership with StillSecure and Launches Industry's First Managed Network Security Solution

Hostway (News - Alert) Corporation is one of the leading infrastructure-as-a-service and cloud hosting service providers. The company recently announced that they will extend their partnership with StillSecure (News - Alert) to offer an expanded selection of data and network security solutions for customers. The company confirmed that it had also added eight new standard security packages that start from economical multi-tenant options and also solutions that have been specifically designed to support PCI (News - Alert) compliance initiatives.

In a release, Aaron Hollobaugh, vice president of Marketing said that, “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. 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.”

Hostway has confirmed that during the early part of 2012, they will extend their partnership with StillSecure to offer robust cloud security solutions for both private and public cloud (FlexCloud) hosting. These managed solutions will support physical, virtual as well as multi-tenant environments, and provide a solution to the unique security gaps that get created by virtual environments. These solutions will be extremely beneficial to Hostway customers as it will enable them to meet the numerous regulations surrounding audit and logging controls.

Rajat Bhargava, president and CEO of StillSecure said that, “Hostway requires a proven partner to deliver best-in-class managed security solutions for each of their critical segments – colo, dedicated, and cloud. 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.”

Wendy Nather, research director for the enterprise security practice at 451 Research said that, “StillSecure and Hostway are working to make security affordable for those customers who previously couldn't justify the added expense. It brings security more closely within reach of companies below the Security Poverty Line.”
