The Atomic Secured Linux Unified Security Suite add-on was developed with a goal to create a security solution that was perfect for both beginners and experts. Those of you deciding to use ASL or who have already been using the Atomic Secured Linux Unified Threat Manager will be glad to know the developers hit their mark. But don’t let the fact that ASL is easy for beginners to use and understand fool you. This security solution is an advanced solution that provides proactive security to protect your servers from zero day threats. Let’s take a look at some of the key features and high points of Atomic Secured Linux.
How Does It Work
To follow in the mantra of its developers, we’ll try to explain how ASL works in a way that makes sense to beginners but doesn’t bore experienced users to tears. ASL is a suite of security tools that protects Linux servers from the Kernel layer, to your applications and services layer up to your firewall. Basically, you receive a proactive protection across all layers that is also compliant with commercial and government security standards.
Atomic Secured Linux is unlike many security solutions as it does not require a seemingly constant updating of security patches to protect your Linux servers. Instead, it offers zero day protection. In other words, ASL proactively secures your systems with technology that prevents, detects and responds to security threats and attacks.
Security, right out of the box
One of the biggest selling points for Atomic Secured Linux Unified Threat Manager is its ease of use. ASL works right out of the box. Just install it and it does the heavy lifting for you. This is a huge bonus as users can save time not only in the installation phase but also in the learning-curve phase. On top of that, when you use ASL, you will save a lot of time managing your security and protection by not having to work individually with a host of individual security applications. We think the developers could have easily given this product a tagline of proactive, plug and play protection. It really is that simple to use.
Atomic Secured Linux Features
There are too many features to mention here without tiring out your eyes from reading. So, with that in mind, we’ll just provide six feature highlights here.
Intrusion Prevention Systems – ASL provides three prevention systems: Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIDS), Kernel Intrusion Prevention System, and Web Intrusion Prevention System / Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall – Easy setup and advanced firewall management GUI for experienced users.
Malware/Antispam/AntiVirus Protection – Real-time protection, real-time removal system, rootkit signatures and third-party signatures.
“Just in Time” Virtual Patching – Designed to protect vulnerable web applications that cannot be patched immediately.
Automatic Self-Healing System – Another one of those “ease of use” features, self-healing automatically fixes problems on the system as they occur. Kick your feet up knowing ASL is working hard in the background to analyze systems and then repair, fix and protect when needed.
Data Loss Protection and Real-Time Web Content Redaction System – ASL keeps sensitive, critical customer data – credit cards, account numbers, social security numbers, etc. – where they belong – safe and secure.
Linux Multi-Platform Support
Atomic Secured Linux supports a number of platforms(Red Hat, Oracle, Amazon, etc.), virtualization technologies(VMWare, Xen, Parallels, etc.), web browsers(IE, Safari, Opera, Firefox) and control panels(Webmin, Parallels Plex, etc.). We’d mention them all here but you can see the entire list on the ASL website. And as far as support to its users, you can obtain unlimited email and web-based support plus extended support options.
