StillSecure's Cloud Security Monitoring Service Available via the AppDirect Marketplace

SUPERIOR, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- StillSecure®, a managed network security solutions and certified compliance company, and AppDirect, the leading cloud service marketplace company, today announced a partnership to offer Cloud SMS through AppDirect's global network of branded partner marketplaces.

StillSecure's Cloud SMS is a host-based firewall solution that easily manages and monitors the on-board Linux IPTables firewall. Cloud SMS is ideal for customers looking to quickly and easily secure their cloud environments without requiring security expertise. Cloud SMS places a small agent on a cloud or dedicated server and provides an easy-to-use Web-based UI that allows users to search for the right ports and protocols to block or allow. Further, users can track statistics and utilization via the embedded reports. Cloud SMS' freeware host-based firewall management solution is the first in a series of cloud security solutions by StillSecure. Cloud SMS will now be available through multiple AppDirect-powered marketplaces offered by trusted brands around the world, including Bell Canada, SaskTel and Deutsche Telekom, among many others.

"StillSecure's solutions are an ideal fit for AppDirect partners who are looking for cloud-based business solutions," said Paul Arnautoff, Director of Business Development at AppDirect. "At AppDirect, our goal is to provide a seamless interface between businesses and their service providers, enabling customers to find, buy and use cloud tools all in one location. Our partnership with StillSecure will help us continue to execute on this important mission."

AppDirect is enabling that effort," said Brian Herman, VP of MSSP Sales for StillSecure. "StillSecure is proud to partner with AppDirect and deepen our focus and success in the service provider sector."
