Host.net's Patent-Pending vGate Technology Delivers Secure Out-of-Band Management for Company's Private Cloud Computing Services
BOCA RATON, FL (November 09, 2010)
– Data center, virtual services and network infrastructure provider Host.net today announced vGate™, a patent-pending, highly secure, front-end web-based management portal providing out-of-band management of Host.net’s virtual machines for clients utilizing the firm’s virtual private data center (vPDC) services.
By equipping organizations with secure management access and control of virtual server systems and data, vGate removes a major concern many IT managers have in outsourcing their storage and application needs to a virtual private data center service.
vGate’s unique remote access and control mechanisms provide:
Trusted out-of-band portal for client management of virtual server and storage resources.
Multi-level strong user authentication through multiple Host.net-developed security enforcing functions.
Additional security components that help ensure strict and total client segmentation and isolation within the Host.net vPDC environment.
Named inventors on vGate patent application are Roger Barranco, Host.net CTO & VP of Operations and Jeffrey Slapp, Host.net VP of Virtualization Services. Barranco has been involved in the information security industry since 1999 and has multiple security certifications. Slapp has over 10 years of virtualization technology experience and is the architect of Host.net’s vPDC platform
“With our vGate platform, organizations subscribing to our vPDC services have highly secure 24x7 access to their virtual resources and key performance indicators,” said Jeffrey Davis, Co-Founder, CEO and President of Host.net. “In addition, by protecting the vPDC infrastructure, vGate enables security to be embedded within the virtual environment instead of being a loosely coupled add-on. This ensures maximum protection of the Host.net vPDC domain.”
To further ensure protection and integrity of client data, Host.net offers a variety of additional security components including StillSecure ProtectPoint firewall, IDPS and VPN managed and monitored security solutions.
Host.net’s cloud computing/enterprise virtual services include enterprise virtual server and storage, remote site replication of virtual machines, and data backup and recovery. The seamless integration of Host.net’s multinational layer 2 network and geographically dispersed virtual private data centers (vPDC) provides high-availability access to the Host.net private cloud.
