Ubuntu Firewall Management

Ubuntu Firewall Management

Make Managing Your Ubuntu Firewalls Super Easy!

Linux iptables, the built-in Ubuntu firewall, is useful but can be difficult to configure, especially in large numbers. While you may find tools to facilitate port configuration, security is another issue. By leaving administrative ports open at all times, your Ubuntu server is vulnerable to hackers, who scan the web for open ports and run an exploit or brute force attacks to gain access.

Dome9 eliminates such risks by keeping ports closed at all times and only opening them when, for whom, and as long as is needed. You can automate Ubuntu firewall management across multiple cloud servers, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), dedicated servers, and service providers. With Dome9, your servers become invisible to hackers and you can easily enable on-demand access for specific users, time periods and applications.

Using our web-based cloud firewall management console, you can:
  • Manage multiple Ubuntu firewalls centrally across multiple clouds
  • Define on-demand, time-based secure access with a single click
  • Apply automated policy management to ensure ports aren’t left open

Managing multiple Ubuntu firewalls

Managing multiple cloud firewalls is quite a challenge – particularly if servers are hosted on different platforms. Quite often, this results in open admin ports that leave servers vulnerable with only a username and password as a line of defense against attacks. With our secure access lease technology, all administrative ports are closed by default and opened on-demand for an authorized user, time period, and purpose.

Managing multiple firewalls is further facilitated with:
  • Security Groups for group-based policies joining multiple clouds and cloud providers
  • 1-click access to any cloud server enabling secure access via a single button in your browser
  • Multi-tiered administration for defining multiple levels of administrative granularity
