Venyu Adds Intrusion Prevention System To Cloud Portfolio

Focusing on cloud-based Intrusion Prevention Systems, Venyu, a leader in business continuity, cloud-based virtualization, and battle-tested data recovery, today announced the availability of its Web Security Manager (WSM). Powered by Alert Logic and part of Venyu's Sentinel Security Suite, WSM provides an enhanced layer of security to block suspicious traffic at the firewall and appliance level and protect Web servers from attacks without compromising site availability. To learn more, join Venyu on November 13th at 2:00 CST for a live Threat Manager, Log Manager, and Web Security Manager on-line demonstration. Please register at:

Venyu's WSM offering provides an alternative to Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) that often impact web site availability by blocking legitimate traffic while requiring expert care to fine tune effectiveness. Running in the company's cloud environment as a virtual solution (VMware vSphere), WSM diagnoses traffic at the http, https and SSL level to provide a simple, fully-managed Intrusion Prevention System with little to no capital expenses or software upgrades. In addition to blocking suspicious web traffic, the WSM offering also provides 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) monitoring and incident escalation services from Alert Logic's certified security analyst team.

"Venyu's new WSM offering is a strategic defense solution that hardens a company's exposed web front end against hackers," said Scott Thompson, Chief Executive Officer at Venyu. "Provided in the same manner as our threat manager and log manager services, the WSM offering is 100 percent software based for rapid set up and deployment -- simplifying cloud-based security solutions by removing hardware maintenance and service costs."

Venyu's WSM Intrusion Prevention System is currently available; for more information please dial (866)978-3698. To connect with Venyu for back-up, recovery, colocation and managed services, please visit
