  • VMWare cloud solution - Security

    We're looking at the VMWare cloud solution as a product we may purchase from you on behalf of one of our clients. We have one question though - could you tell me what sort of firewall and speed/throughput it would have?

    Good Morning Frankenstein,

    VM would be deployed with CSF software firewall and the back-end network speed would be 100 mbit.
    Let us know if you have any more questions ..

      Hello Leon,

      Would the port speed would be dedicated for the VM itself or would be shared and also is there any cost for CSF Firewall.

      Awaiting your reply soon.

        Hi Calvin,

        Thank you for writing in.

        I would like to inform you that the CSF firewall is offered for free, you will need to get in touch with our technical support team and they will install it for you at no additional cost. Also the Port speed offered is shared between the VM(s).

        Please let us know if there are further queries to be addressed.

        Regards,
        Albie Stevens

          Does the cloud also have hardware firewalls? Could you give me details on those?

            When it comes to firewall, it is used at the cluster level which protects the main node from threats and intrusions. The cloud VM's do not have an option for hardware firewall.

              Okay, it means the cloud solution/infrastructure itself have hardware firewall, right?

                Hi Frankenstein

                In case of Cloud hosting firewall is at the cluster level which is a protection for the nodes from threats and intrusions. The individual VMs do not get a hardware firewall option.

                  We're working on having hardware firewalls deployed on our VMWare platform, similarly like we did for the HyperV one & hopefully that too will be made available soon..
