CloudLinux, maker of this operating system (OS) for hosting providers, has released the public beta for Imunify360 – a security product for protecting Linux VPS hosting and dedicated servers from digital attacks.
The new CloudLinux product is offered in two versions, both free during the public beta period. Several “high-performance” features are already available and many additional features are to be released in the upcoming months.
Imunify360 – this full version product uses herd immunity and the six-layer approach providing “complete, automated” protection against attacks. It is powered by the technology that is constantly collecting and analyzing a massive amount of information about new attacks on a global scale – so that customers would be able to benefit from it the moment they install the product. Imunify360 would give them powerful security features, such as advanced firewall and smart intrusion detection system, as well as the centralized view, right inside their control panel, to check in on the overall state of their server’s security.
- Imunify Sensor – this light version provides a centralized interface for all external attacks coming to the web server. It collects information, sends it to the central server, and provides customers with a detailed report of all offending IPs and attacks coming from each IP. It plugs into their existing logs to identify brute force attacks, port scans, DoS attacks, and other various attacks against web applications based on the WAF firewall customers might already have on their server.
“The recent hosting industry survey, with over 700 service providers participating, revealed top security threats – those include malware infections, brute force attacks, code injections, website defacement, and more,” said Igor Seletskiy, CEO of CloudLinux. “No wonder we’ve seen such a high level of enthusiasm during the private beta announced two months ago, and we are excited to open access to every hosting provider that wants to take a closer look at Imunify360, a security solution we developed specifically for protecting their Linux web servers.”
