SecureLVE Will Be Supported by Parallels Panel Products

Cloud Linux Inc. has announced that its CloudLinux's SecureLVE security solution will be supported by Parallels Panel products by Q4 2010. Parallels Plesk Panel is the number one control panel in the world with thousands of applications that deliver the easiest, most profitable and most complete service for virtual, dedicated, and shared hosting providers. Integrating SecureLVE into the control panel will give hosting providers new security controls previously unavailable.

SecureLVE is based on CloudLinux's Lightweight Virtual Environment technology and creates a new level of security for shared hosting servers. Providing a virtualized file system, SecureLVE separates each user on the server into its own environment, preventing one user from seeing any other users on the server. This new server security makes it difficult for hackers to attack, deface, or steal data from the shared web server.

Since it is based on CloudLinux's Lightweight Virtual Environment technology that allows the administrator to control usage of the resources on a server at the tenant or application level, SecureLVE virtualizes a filesystem to limit the available applications, devices, and what a user can see in the file system to make it harder for an attacker to penetrate the server. Unlike existing technologies limited only to shell access, SecureLVE works across shell, CGI, & cronjobs.

The integration of SecureLVE into Parallels Plesk Panel is further demonstration of both Parallels and Cloud Linux's promise to help service providers improve efficiency and security of multi- tenant environments. SecureLVE provides system administrations functionality similar to container based virtualization, but on application level instead of the OS level. It will fill the gap between shared hosting and virtual private servers (VPS), and will allow server administrators to increase server stability and density while greatly improving the security of shared hosting.
