CloudPassage, a cloud server security provider, this week is unveiling Halo NetSec, a service that provides advanced network access control for servers running in public clouds.

The company says Halo NetSec gives administrators perimeter controls that are specifically designed for cloud environments, addressing a top security concern related to cloud adoption.

Halo NetSec combines centralized host–based firewall management that’s designed for cloud environments with two-factor authentication.

“Given the fluctuating nature of on-demand computing, we’re finding cloud adopters are challenged to find effective ways to secure their servers,” Rand Wacker, vice president of product management at CloudPassage, said in a statement.

The Halo NetSec package offers firewall protection for an unlimited number of servers, CloudPassage says. Another feature, called GhostPorts, can secure remote network access through multi-factor authentication.

Halo NetSec is now available on a server-hour basis at the rate of 3.5 cents per server per hour. Volume discounts are automatically applied and additional discounts are available with monthly minimum usage commitments.
