CloudPassage recently launched out of “stealth mode”, releasing a formidable one-two punch for securing elastic cloud environments in the form of Halo SVM and Halo Firewall. Punch one, Halo SVM, addresses the specific server vulnerability management needs in cloud server environments, such as elasticity. Customers can maintain continuous exposure and compliance intelligence, even in rapidly growing cloud server farms. Other features include a light footprint and ability to assess thousands of server configuration points in seconds. Punch two, Halo Firewall, controls server attack surfaces by centralizing and automating host-based firewall management, the preferred alternative to traditional enterprise perimeter firewalls, says CloudPasage.
Applying the Linux community's classic flair for maximizing interoperability, Open-Xchange introduced full MAPI support to its completely redeveloped Microsoft Outlook Connector. The move enables users of its open-source Open-Xchange e-mail and collaboration server to use Microsoft Outlook as the client software. The Open-Xchange alternative to the more expensive Microsoft Exchange server integrates e-mail, calendar, contact and task management with advanced groupware features, such as information management and document sharing, along with cutting-edge social-network integration. While users utilize the familiar client, the new software connector ensures seamless synchronization with Open-Xchange server in the background. The software connector supports Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007, as well as the 32-bit version of Outlook 2010.
