Vancouver, British Columbia – (The Hosting News) – March 31, 2008 – PEER 1 subsidiary specializing in self-managed hosting, ServerBeach, has released its self-managed firewalls to over 3,000 customers at its San Antonio data center.
Robert Miggins, Vice President of business development for PEER 1 noted, ”In keeping with the needs of our self-managed hosting customers, this product provides the highest security while being easy to install and manage. We know our customers, who come from a great variety of industries, and pride ourselves on offering the best and most affordable tools to support maximum business growth.”
The firewall product, mGuard Smart by Inominate, provides added security and is fully self-managed by customers via a web interface. This provides the kind of control and flexibility ServerBeach customers expect and can take full advantage of for their business or web presence. The mGuard Smart offers an extremely high degree of security and performance. It can be integrated anywhere both quickly and simply without modifications to the server, regardless of the processor technology or operating systems used. Because the firewall is independent it does not affect the performance of the server’s processor.
The mGuard Smart unites the advantages of hardware and software-based security concepts in a single component. All the security functions are integrated into the self-contained, fully independent mGuard platform. For this reason, it is not necessary to reconfigure the server being protected, nor do drivers or additional software need to be installed. The firewall performs much better and is more reliable than the typical shared or PCI based firewall. ServerBeach will offer the firewall at $99 per month with a $50 setup fee, and it is available on Category 3 and 5 servers within the San Antonio data center.
