PRNewswire: Rackspace.com Introduces SecureGuard to Ensure New Levels of Security on Linux Servers

Apr 24, 2000, 19:14 (0 Talkback[s])

"Rackspace.com, a leading provider of Linux-based Advanced Internet Hosting services, today announced that it will add the SecureGuard security system to its array of advanced Web hosting services. SecureGuard offers many levels of built-in security and monitoring enhancements for customers concerned about unauthorized access to their server. Customers wanting a higher level of security for credit card operations, e-commerce and corporate email servers will particularly benefit from SecureGuard."

"SecureGuard uses a variety of software packages to assist system administrators in securing network traffic to a customer's server. It includes monitoring tools to inform the administrator of security attacks, breaches or malicious activity."

"The performance of Internet servers is frequently adversely affected by a firewall because the classic firewall model calls for a single point of entry. In a classic firewall, all servers in a cluster are affected if one is compromised. With the Rackspace SecureGuard model, each server in a cluster has its own protection so that if one of the cluster is attacked, the other servers continue to function normally. The Rackspace SecureGuard model installs quickly, is integrated with each server in a customer's cluster and scales easily."
