Hosting OS developer CloudLinux announced on Wednesday the release of an all-in-one automated security product for web hosting providers, called Imunify360.
Imunify360 works on CentOS, Red Hat, and CloudLinux OS 6 and 7, and protects Linux VPS, dedicated, and shared servers. Its dashboard is integrated with cPanel, with DirectAdmin, Plesk, and no-panel support coming soon. It includes smart intrusion detection and protection systems (IDS/IPS), and intelligent sandboxing is among the features coming soon, the company said this week at World Hosting Days in Germany.
Web hosting providers can benefit from Imunify360’s sophisticated threat detection, provided by its self-learning firewall with herd immunity, as well as its malware scanning engine for detecting and removing malware from websites before they are delisted and blocked, CloudLinux said. Imunify360 also provides cost efficiency with automation and a single management dashboard, and live kernel patching with KernelCare, providing security updates without impacting customer satisfaction with reboots.
“The types of attacks that target web hosting servers greatly differ from those targeting the enterprises, but the majority of security solutions available were developed for the enterprise,” Igor Seletskiy, chief executive officer of CloudLinux said in a statement. “Hosting providers are an easy mark for hackers who want to make easy money, and we want to ensure that our customers don’t let attackers profit off their servers. We developed Imunify360 to address the web hosting market security concerns specifically.”
Imunify360 currently eliminates 85 percent of false positives, and CloudLinux anticipates it will reach at least 95 percent soon, Seletskiy said.
Web hosts can run Imunify360 on their shared servers for $5 per month per server, and offer it to VPS and dedicated hosting customers to increase profits. CloudLinux is offering a free 30-day trial of Imunify360, and it can be purchased as a single license, or with a discount for 5 or more licenses before April 30.
