Rackspace Cloud Customers Can Now Apply Managed Security Services from StillSecure

Rackspace Cloud, an innovative and open cloud platform from Rackspace, will provide managed security services from StillSecure (News - Alert). This will offer a number of benefits to Rackspace Cloud customers, who will now be able to secure their cloud servers by leveraging the Cloud Network Security Appliance (NSA) from StillSecure

The NSA is a special security service that permits customers to set up a managed security cloud server within their public cloud infrastructure.

"Rackspace (News - Alert) Cloud customers continue to push the envelope of what's possible in the cloud, and as a result, they require more comprehensive security and compliance solutions,” said  Ven Shanmugam, Senior Manager, Strategy and Corporate Development. “We are excited to see StillSecure continue to expand its Cloud Tools presence with the addition of their Cloud NSA managed security services, which will help our customers address their security and compliance challenges."

StillSecure is a global specialist in managed network security solutions and certified compliance companies. The company will now provide support for its Cloud NSA solution to customers via Rackspace's Cloud Tools Program, together with StillSecure's Cloud Security Monitoring Service (Cloud SMS), an automated cloud instance-based security solution.

Companies that decide to use StillSecure's managed security services will also be able to apply 24/7 security event monitoring, access to security experts, Cloud NSA instance and a full featured Web-based portal. Companies can also easily add the CentOS-based NSA image to their existing infrastructure.

"Regardless of industry or company size, cloud users continue to tell us that their number one concern is security,” said James Brown, CTO at StillSecure. “By embedding our managed security services within the Rackspace Cloud, we have eliminated the need for customers to add the security layer as an afterthought. We're making it easy for Rackspace customers to purchase Cloud NSA, and by simplifying the process and adding high quality security services."

Cloud NSA will give companies the opportunity to safely secure their public cloud servers by leveraging a robust suite of managed security services, including a managed firewall, IDPS, log management, WAF, file integrity monitoring and a number of other unique features.
