Seeking to integrate IAM within Azure Cloud?
Want to connect private VNet’s over multiple data centers?
Are you struggling with encrypted site-to-site VPN connectivity?
Attempting to automate Network Security Group (NSG) configuration?
40Cloud addresses these security challenges and more, providing an end-to-end
security solution for Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure.
This inclusive solution, delivered in a SaaS model, encrypts VPN links to
interconnect all your Azure Cloud regions with each other and to your company’s
40Cloud’s automation enables DevOps teams and IT administrators to fully
orchestrate network security policies throughout cloud-based software development,
production and ongoing administration assignments.
The Gateways are the enforcement point of Access Control Policies and define the only entry-points to your Azure Cloud deployment. The Gateways are software routers that are self-installed, usually one per Azure Cloud VNet.
Each Gateway is installed on a dedicated virtual server and can be interconnected in a mesh of VPN links to other Gateways and to on-premise firewall devices. All employees, remote users and partners who access your cloud servers will connect to the Gateways using standard VPN technology, will have their identity authenticated and their authorization profiles enforced.
Web Admin Console
The 40Cloud Web Admin Console enables configuration and monitoring all aspects of cloud security. Using the intuitive UI it’s easy to monitor network connectivity status, system events and alarms.
In addition, System Administrators, Security and/or DevOps teams can utilize the Web Admin Console to configure firewall policies, user roles and access rules, as well as build the static VPN connectivity.
How It Works
AZURE USE CASES
The 40Cloud solution encrypts your company’s data in-motion on every hop and automates network security policies to control access to your company’s resources.
Compliance in the Cloud
40Cloud builds on top of the Azure native network security primitives, adding additional security functions and increasing visibility. 40Cloud’s solution can integrate with existing network security functions, like SIEM and IDS, and is HIPAA compliant.
With 40Cloud’s security solution DevOps and production cloud environments can scale to any size and be fully dynamic and agile. The 40Cloud solution provides administrators with central firewall policy engine that automatically configures Network Security Groups (NSGs) and firewall rules to the entire Azure deployment. In addition, 40Cloud’s northbound REST APIs enable automated configuration and orchestration of firewall and identity-based access policies as well as to dynamically control all networking aspects.
Multi-region and hybrid Cloud
40Cloud’s solution securely interconnects multiple private subnets (VNets) on one or multiple regions, together with enterprise networks outside of the Azure cloud. This software-defined VPN network is fully routable, can support any topology and any IP addressing paradigm.
Identity-based Network Access
Authorization profiles are enforced on all remote VPN users by means of central, identity-based Access Rights policies (i.e., who can access what). These policies enable you to centrally control back-end access to your entire Azure deployment, so that no one gains access unless they are authenticated. In addition, these policies can be integrated with existing (on-premise or cloud-based) identity-based authentication and authorization systems, such as Active Directory (AD), LDAP or RADIUS.
40Cloud delivers a dynamic security solution that scales as your organization adds users, data traffic, devices and geographic locations. The solution secures your data in transit, allowing you to build on Azure Cloud’s virtually always-available data, applications and server environments.
The SaaS-based solution provides the flexibility for you to scale as required, with a variety of plans to fit your specific requirements. Since in-house security expertise is hardly required, reduced operating costs are another welcome benefit of 40Cloud’s simplified and automated network security solution.
All networking and access related security tasks are automated with APIs that offer automation of security and network configurations. Centralized management streamlines security policy management across your entire deployment.
40Cloud’s intuitive UI provides full visibility of the cloud deployments. The notification and logging mechanisms add real time alert and forensic capabilities, so that System Administrators are able to better control and monitor their secure cloud network. All security configurations are performed using policies, requiring minimal manual intervention.
