STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN. 2015-04-16, by Nikolas Georgii

Clavister, a leader in high-performance, high-availability network security, has announced that itSoft, a leading ISP and cloud managed services provider in Croatia, has extended its security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offering to its entire customer base, using Clavister’s centralised, virtualised next-generation-firewalls.

itSoft will offer the SECaaS solution to all its cloud customers, providing tenants with a dedicated firewall that delivers individual protection via Clavister’s robust next-generation security solution. itSoft is also offering all clients the opportunity to replace their existing physical and virtual firewalls with the Clavister’s SECaaS solution, enabling access to a range of enhanced security features.  

itSoft’s customers will realise the full range of benefits offered by the SECaaS model, which provides next-generation IT security to organisations through a virtualised firewall to protect business networks, including robust network protection, flexible deployment, low or no upfront capital costs, automatic security updates, and easy management and support.

Vedran Vujasinović, Chief Information Security Officer, said: “Offering Clavister’s SECaaS solution to our customers ensures that they receive a feature-rich next-generation-firewall that can either be self-managed or provisioned by our support team. By providing a dedicated security solution to all our cloud tenants they can continually monitor the status of their infrastructure and take advantage of the full range of the solutions’ advanced security features.”

Mr. Vujasinović continues: “As we deliver solutions to our customers, from servers, storage, internet services, datacentre facilities and telco services, it was important that we had a security offering that met all our customer’s specific requirements. Clavister’s scalable solution compliments our service offering and provides a robust central and virtualised firewall service. This offers our customers a security provision that is easy to manage and control, giving us a clear advantage over our competitors"

itSoft will offer customers a variety of SECaaS options using Clavister solutions from firewall only solution to firewall with IPS, bandwidth management, application control, or a firewall with full NGFW feature-set. Customers can select and build their own package which can be updated and changed to meet current requirements, paying only for the services that they deploy.

Clavister CEO Jim Carlsson commented: “We are seeing growing market demand for security that can be provisioned on a pay-as-you-go basis and adapted to meet the individual requirements of organisations and service providers. The flexibility and scalability of our products lends itself to this model, ensuring that customers receive robust, next-generation security regardless of the modules that they deploy.”

itSoft has deployed Clavister W5 next generation firewalls for all internal and public VLANs, functioning as the business’ central gateway. itSoft is also running Clavisters virtual firewall on its VMware cloud infrastructure service to deliver the security-as-a-service provision.

Clavister’s SECaaS offering is based on its award-winning firewall solutions, providing physical and virtual NGFWs to protect users’ virtualized environments.

IaaS providers can simply deploy and manage hundreds or thousands of individual Clavister Virtual Series Gateways as a SECaaS offering, with a high degree of flexibility and pay-as-you-go pricing.
