What is possible with FCO v5

Firewall Creation

This plugin allows you to automatically create and apply a deny all firewall template to servers as they are created, so you can be sure that newly created servers aren’t accidentally left exposed.

  • Image specific firewalls applied at create time (e.g deny all apart from SSH for Linux and RDP for Windows)
  • Standardised firewall rollout per customer, e.g blocking all external access apart from customer approved IP addresses
  • Application or Production status specific firewall rules applied during rollout process
