Jelastic Multi-Cloud DevOps PaaS announced a new product release named Shield 5.4, highlighting its main target on security enhancements. Within this release, the platform was upgraded with a new firewall management system, private network isolation and a set of other features demanded by customers.
One of the major features of Jelastic 5.4 release is a newly implemented possibility to manage inbound and outbound firewall rules on the container level through a convenient graphical interface. A number of default rules is automatically added to the inbound section to make the node operable.
Also, an automatic network isolation was implemented to prohibit any unallowed connections between different environments. This results in another essential newly added possibility to create secure environment groups, intended to isolate environments of a single account from each other. Platform automatically creates a dedicated IP set for each isolated group, which is composed of the appropriate containers internal addresses. This allows to control access between nodes of each environment.
In confines of Jelastic Shield version, there were added a number of other demanded features and improvements, among them:
- Extra Environment Layers for All Supported Middleware Stacks
