Web Hosting ReviewsEast Sussex, UK – Cloud hosting company StratoGen today launched a range of security features designed to enhance cloud security and help prevent malicious attacks.

The new service called SharpLock is free and available exclusively on StratoGen’s VMware hosting service. SharpLock acts as an additional firewall to protect administrator access to your cloud hosting account using a range of sophisticated security measures.

“The security risks involved with public clouds are well known and are often a barrier to cloud adoption. One of the most significant issues is privileged user access and the associated lack of security controls. The ease of deployment for most cloud services is a double edged sword as it allows a malicious user or hacker to destroy your entire infrastructure in seconds, if they gain access to your account.” commented Karl Robinson, Director.

SharpLock works as an additional layer of strong security that can be configured to protect an organisation from attack. The service is highly flexible allowing users to implement a wide range of security precautions including restricted IP or VPN access, SSL and automatic lockout. The service also protects access to the extensive VMware vCloud API.

StratoGen is the first major cloud provider to offer this additional layer of security.

David Elliott, Technical Director said “Businesses are rightly demanding transparency from their cloud hosting provider including disclosure of data location and regulatory compliance information. StratoGen are going further still by implementing services that enhance data security beyond that seen in traditional hosting environments. The cloud is transforming how we all look at hosting but it’s important that cloud providers recognise the risks.”

StratoGen operate a next generation platform that allows users to create entire virtual datacentres in the cloud including virtual machines, firewalls and networks. Built on VMware vSphere 4.1, the service is available in multiple datacentres and offers a 100% uptime guarantee. SharpLock is available now on all StratoGen cloud hosting products.
