SingleHop Launches New SnapShield™ On-Demand Firewall

SingleHop, a leading managed dedicated server hosting company, is at it again with their latest innovation for on-demand server management tools. SingleHop launched their new New SnapShield™ On-Demand Firewall in September, adding to their already advanced array of innovative tools.

According to SingleHop, the on-demand firewall system enables small and medium sized clients to quickly deploy an advanced Cisco-powered™ hardware firewall, for a fraction of the cost of having their own dedicated hardware firewall. SingleHop clients will enjoy the seamless control of their on-demand firewall due to its direct integration into LEAP, the web-hosts’ comprehensive server management software accessible online, on a desktop application and through various mobile devices including Android, iPhone and Blackberry.

SingleHop’s President & CEO, Zak Boca, says “With the addition of SnapShield, LEAP now offers a set of features unmatched by other server providers. Clients now can deploy an affordable and advanced hardware firewall in less than a minute, something that used to take days and is simply not available with many of our competitors.”

SnapShield™ On-Demand Firewall Features Include

  • Application awareness
  • SSL and IPsec VPN
  • Intrusion Prevention
  • Automatic anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-phishing protection

SnapShield is available currently inside the LEAP web-top interface. SingleHop plans to offer mobile firewall deployment and configuration via LEAP mobile within the next six months.

Turnkey Internet Launches Green-Friendly Hybrid Web Servers

October 8th, 2009

Web Hosting Company Turnkey Internet Launches Green-Friendly Hybrid Web Servers

TurnKey Internet has added a great new line of servers, the Green-Friendly Hybrid Web Server Line. These fully-managed hybrids offer the performance and reliability of TurnKey’s dedicated servers, with increased energy efficiency at an affordable price. Adam Wills, President and CEO of TurnKey Internet, says “The hybrid server finds the perfect balance of price, performance and reliability and it’s very environmentally friendly.”

A dedicated web server is often sitting idle between tasks. Even so, it still consumes the same amount of electricity as when running at full capacity. TurnKey Internet’s Hybrid Web Server Line solves this problem.  Hybrid servers provide the same performance as a dedicated web server for up to 8 clients on one machine translating into less use of electricity per client. This should be great news for all businesses and individuals who are concerned about our environment. Through TurnKey Internet’s Hybrid Web Server Line you can purchase a high-quality web hosting solution that saves money and reduces the carbon footprint.

Green-Friendly Hybrid Web Servers Features Include

All of TurnKey Internet’s hybrid servers are backed by 24×7 gold-level, fully-managed support previously only available on their dedicated line. With a choice of Windows or Linux, each hybrid server includes free cPanel or Plesk, bare metal off-site back-ups, a managed firewall, system administrative assistance, security monitoring and auditing and free server migration assistance.
