SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of network firewall solutions, today announced a partnership with Mirantis, the pure play OpenStack company, and the availability of the Hillstone data center security appliance as a Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) solution within the Mirantis OpenStack environment. With this joint offering, customers who rely on Mirantis for production deployment of OpenStack at scale can secure their network with a plug-in from Hillstone. The FWaaS provides protection for OpenStack-based public and private clouds. Tenants can now use their cloud services securely through network isolation and policy protection.
As part of this effort, Hillstone joins the Mirantis’ Unlocked Technology Partner Program, to ensure seamless support and experience for our joint customers through automated configuration, deployment and integration.
“Hillstone Networks provides the high-performance firewall appliance for data center environments now certified with the Mirantis OpenStack,” said Mirantis VP of Product Marketing, Kamesh Pemmaraju. “We look forward to working with Hillstone to further automating the solution to drive cloud agility balanced with advanced security.”
Hillstone Networks provides high-performance data center firewall solutions which can be deployed at the perimeter of the data center to secure North-South traffic. With Hillstone FWaaS Plugin Driver deployed with Mirantis OpenStack, OpenStack administrators can configure firewall policies through the FWaaS plugin. The policies will then be pushed to the Hillstone firewall appliance automatically. The Hillstone FWaaS Solution protects the cloud platform and ensures business continuity with comprehensive security protection which is far beyond OpenStack Security Group and FWaaS rules, and optimizes administration to provide simplified management of cloud security to users. The solution is suitable for carriers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), business park, higher education and many other types of businesses.
“The joint solution with Mirantis addresses today’s cloud-based data centers’ security challenges that cannot be resolved with traditional security architectures.
