Cloud Linux's SecureLVE for ISPmanager


ISPsystem supports Cloud Linux SecureLVETM in ISPmanager. Integrating SecureLVE into the control panel gives hosting providers new security controls previously unavailable.

SecureLVE is based on CloudLinux's Lightweight Virtual EnvironmentTM technology and creates a new level of security for shared hosting servers. SecureLVE provides a virtualized file system, which 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.

"We are very pleased to have SecureLVE integrated into ISPmanager because it will give hosting providers not only the control promised by CloudLinux but also the most secure shared hosting environment available," states Cloud Linux Inc. Founder and CEO Igor Seletskiy.

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.

"Supporting CloudLinux with ISPmanager is a big win for our customers," states ISPsystem CEO Igor Chekushkin. "SecureLVE will fill the critical gap in security for shared hosting setup. Combining the ability to manage resources on a per tenant basis with the ease of ISPmanager will create a top of the line solution and a excellent experience for the end customers."

The integration of SecureLVE into ISPmanager is further demonstration of Cloud Linux's promise to help service providers improve efficiency and security of multi- tenant setups. 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.
