CHICAGO – GigeNET, an innovator in resilient managed cloud and dedicated hosting, announced the release of the Intel Xeon-D 1541 CPU. These high-density servers use less power and run cooler, while outperforming a large variety of E3 and some E5 chipsets. The lowered consumption translates to a very reliable engine for your cloud and dedicated workloads at a lowered cost.

The Intel Xeon D family was designed specifically to provide high-performance in a low-power “system-on-a-chip” (SOC) framework. These servers can efficiently process hyperscale workloads in cloud and dedicated hosting environments making them equally capable for reseller hosting and cloud deployments. In fact, it was the high density capability for shared hosting and business use that first attracted GigeNET to the chipset in the first place.


“The Xeon-D is where performance and environmental responsibility intersect. It is the most robust computational platform that I have seen for the entry level and mid-market server range, and has a small carbon footprint. The Xeon-D showcases what we can accomplish when we build tech that puts people, performance, and the environment first,” said Joe De Paola, EVP of Products at GigeNET.

GigeNET’s Xeon-Ds start with 64GB of DDR4 and can quickly scale to 128 GB. Rounding out the configuration, every Xeon-D comes with a 960GB Enterprise SSD with room for more.

Amazon Web Services rolled out five new security and encryption features to its Simple Storage Service (S3) to make it easier for customers to protect their data. Amazon had launched S3 back in 2006 with each block of it protected by an Access Control List (ACL) that kept the developers’ data private, shared either for reading or shared for both reading and writing, as needed. From then, AWS has added many supports, including bucket policies, server access logging, versioning, API logging, encryptions etc. to keep the data safer. AI and machine learning support was also added to it with Amazon Macie, a tool for discovering, classifying and securing content at scale. But recently, some of the leading companies who use AWS S3 buckets for storing their confidential data, found that their data was exposed on the web. Responding to that, AWS announced five new security features to its S3 platform. Default Encryption The things stored in S3 didn’t use to get encrypted by default, and…

HOUSTON, TX – RoboCyberWall, Inc., a provider of a proprietary precision firewall solution that protects HTTP and HTTPS (SSL) ports on Linux-based Apache2 and NGINX web servers, today unveiled its flagship product under the same name. The RoboCyberWallTM patent-pending firewall blocks all known exploits and “Zero Day” attacks on Apache2 and NGINX web servers that, according to W3Techs Web Technology Surveys, comprise more than 83 percent of all web servers worldwide. It is a simple-to-download and easy-to-install module for use with on-premise servers, cloud servers or shared hosting accounts and requires exceptionally low RAM and processor resources. It’s available for license for less than $9/month.

In securing the non-application portion of the stack, RoboCyberWall provides pinpoint protection for Linux Apache2 or NGINX web server’s HTTP and HTTPS ports. Typically these are ports 80 and 443, which are two of the top three most targeted ports for attack worldwide, according to Akamai’s State of the Internet report.


RoboCyberWall is also proud to announce it has Partnered with Astra Security which offers a highly specialized web application firewall designed to protect WordPress, Magento, OpenCart, Drupal, Joomla, Woocommerce.

“Firewalls today remain the critical first line of defense from ever-growing and increasingly sophisticated threats,” said John R. Martinson Jr., CTO and Founder of RoboCyberWall. “Stopping a malicious program, or attacker, from gaining access to your network and information before any potential damage is done is key, and RoboCyberWall prevents breaches from happening in the first place.”

RoboCyberWall, Inc. contracted with SecureWorks to perform security assessment during the period from September 5, 2017 to September 8, 2017. The objective of this engagement was to identify vulnerabilities in RoboCyberWall’s systems and network security that external adversaries could exploit. During the course of the assessment, SecureWorks launched 6,593 probes and manual hack attempts on the RoboCyberWall protected server without accomplishing any breaches. The Full Report is available for review at: https://robocyberwall.com/files/RoboCyberWall_EPT_09132017.pdf

“RoboCyberWall is a particularly attractive option for small and mid-size businesses (SMBs), which are targeted much more frequently than large enterprises,” said John Martinson, Sr., CEO and President of RoboCyberWall. The Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report found that 81 percent of all data breaches happen to small businesses which often lack the resources to protect business-critical data. “RoboCyberWall is a step in the direction of democratizing firewalls for all web servers and making true cyber security possible at an affordable price,” said Martinson, Sr. “Enterprise firewalls are very expensive and require significant investments and IT staff to install, configure and maintain, which often puts them out of reach for most SMBs.

“‘Zero Day’ attacks have been impossible to protect against because older technology has to guess which packets are good and which are bad. However, RoboCyberWall has a real-time whitelisting feature that allows good packets to be immediately validated while blocking all other unknown packets. Moreover, if new content is added to a server, that information is instantly added to the whitelist,” said Martinson Jr.

“RoboCyberWall’s white listing feature means zero false positives and zero bad packets make it into your Linux server, which shields your website with comprehensive protection,” said Martinson Jr. “With Google blacklisting an estimated 10,000 compromised websites every day, RoboCyberWall protects your website and keeps it up and running.”

RoboCyberwall is already receiving industry recognition with these recent awards:

CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards 2017 – http://cybersecuritybreakthrough.com/
Unified Threat Management – Next Generation Firewall Solution of the Year.
Golden Bridge Awards 2017 – http://www.goldenbridgeawards.com
