Hillstone Data Center Firewall provides IaaS providers with a powerful multi-tenant, cloud based, virtual security solution. IaaS tenants can configure and control their own cloud security via Hillstone’s multi-tenant management platform.
Hillstones software-based Elastic Firewall Architecture (EFA) technology distributes firewall processing across multiple, distributed virtual machines, scaling and pooling security resources in a highly flexible, elastic manner.
EFA deploys virtual security I/O modules (vIOMs) close to protected VMs. vIOMs provide rack-level security for all north-south and east-west virtual machine traffic, ensuring minimal performance impact and robust security protection. Unique, patented flow migration technology re-establishes sessions and maintains policies as virtual machines migrate across the data center, ensuring non-stop performance and business continuity and providing a unified view of data center data planes. Virtual Security Service Modules (vSSMs) offer firewall services as resources in a pool. vIOMs and vSSMs can be started elastically to maintain performance as network traffic grows, ensuring stable firewall performance. All virtual modules are managed as a single virtual appliance.
Virtual Security Control Modules (vSCM) integrate tightly with Citrix CloudPlatform providing IaaS providers with a powerful multitenant, cloud based, virtual security solution. IaaS clients can configure and control their own cloud security via Hillstone’s multitenant management platform. All virtual modules are managed as a single virtual appliance.
Fully distributed EFA hardware architectures scales processing and performance linearly
Virtual firewall technology creates independent tenant security planes and allocates security resources on demand for each data center tenant
