CloudPassage announced today that it has entered into the Cloud Tools Program with Rackspace Hosting.
This program enables Rackspace cloud customers to have access to the CloudPassage software-as-a-service security solution, where they can manage cloud security by leveraging a single solution that is purpose-built for the cloud and delivers multiple layers of defense for cloud servers.
Carson Sweet, co-founder and CEO CloudPassage said: “Security and compliance remain major challenges that stop companies from experiencing the benefits that the tremendous scalability and agility of cloud hosting provides. Securing the server itself in an automated, portable, and elastic manner represents an extremely effective approach to practical survivability in public and hybrid clouds. We are excited to work with Rackspace to provide more value to their customers by transparently and portably protecting servers within the Rackspace Cloud.”
CloudPassage is a security SaaS company offering the industry’s first and only server security and compliance solutions purpose-built for elastic cloud environments.

The company’s Halo cloud server security product offers high-accuracy server security configuration and vulnerability management, centralized management of host-based firewalls and server account auditing for Linux servers. The innovative capabilities of the Halo platform operate across infrastructure models and seamlessly handle cloud server bursting, cloning, and migration.
