This presentation contains an overview of GoGrid's new (free) firewall service and how to create, enable and manage the service. This easy-to-use firewall protects all GoGrid cloud servers across multiple GoGrid data centers worldwide with automatic replication. The GoGrid Firewall is part of GoGrid's Cloud Infrastructure service and is built upon our Software Defined Networking (SDN) architecture. More information can be found at: http://j.mp/11STp9w

    • How To Enable & Manage the GoGrid Firewall ServiceFREE^
    • About GoGridGoGrid’s cloud hosting platform provides: Automated provisioning of infrastructure over the Internet Deploy and scale virtual (cloud) and physical servers, storage, networking, loadbalancing, and firewalls in real time across multiple data centers using GoGrid’sweb-based management console or API. Instant access to highly available, multi-server environments Access and operate using standard network protocols and IP addresses—no newtechnical skills or specialized equipment required.
    • About GoGrid’s Firewall ServiceGoGrid offers all customers an elastic, self-healing Firewall Serviceto protect their servers free of charge. Central management: Manage your policies from GoGrid’s managementconsole or via our RESTful API. Fully featured: Define inbound and outbound policies. Dynamically edit ormove connections to a Security Group. Easy to use: Predefined Security Groups make using the service quick and easy. Global Security Groups: Define once, then synchronize across all GoGrid datacenters so the policies you define can be applied globally. Highly available: Designed to instantly recover from failure. Fully integrated: Use the firewall in conjunction with other GoGrid services.More details at:www.gogrid.com/products/infrastructure-firewall
    • Components of GoGrid’s Firewall Service 3 components to GoGrid’s Firewall Service1. Security Group2. Policy3. Connection Security Group Global – not tied to a particular data center Single-purpose – create Security Groups for specific groups of similar servers (e.g., web ordatabase) Copy/Edit/Disable/Delete – full control over the management of Security Groups Default Security Groups – use to create custom Security Groups (can’t edit or delete, only copy)• Core – blocks all inbound traffic except pings, but can communicate with other servers in thesame Security Groups• Block All – most restrictive: blocks all inbound & outbound traffic (good for locking down aserver)• Linux Web – use for Linux-based web servers; opens ports 80 & 443 (HTTP/S) and 22 (SSH)• Windows Web – use for Windows-based web servers; opens ports 80 & 443 (HTTP/S) and3389 (RDP)
    • Components of GoGrid’s Firewall Service (cont.) Policy Governs the behavior of the Firewall By default, the Firewall drops all traffic Transport Protocol• TCP (HTTP/web traffic)• UDP (DNS-type traffic)• ICMP (Ping) Policy Direction• Each policy must have a direction – Inbound, Outbound, or Any (both directions) Address• For each policy, you can specify particular IP addresses:• 0.0.0.0/0 or Any – any IP address• Self – any server connected to this Security Group• Any server in the specified Security Group• A specific IP address – such as 50.145.33.17• A specific subnet – such as 50.145.33.1/24 Connections (Servers) A Connection is a server and an interface Connections are local (for a particular data center), but policies are global Only one Security Group per connection
    • 3 Steps to Enable &Manage GoGrid’s FirewallService
    • Steps to Enable GoGrid’s Firewall Service1. Create a Security Group2. Define a Policy3. Add a ConnectionMore details at:www.gogrid.com/products/infrastructure-firewall
    • Step #1 – Create a SecurityGroup
    • #1 – About Security Groups Security Group Global – not tied to a particular data center Single-purpose – create Security Groups for specificgroups of similar servers (e.g., web or database) Copy/Edit/Disable/Delete – full control over themanagement of Security Groups Default Security Groups – use to create customSecurity Groups (can’t edit or delete, only copy)• Core – blocks all inbound traffic except pings, but cancommunicate with other servers in the same SecurityGroups• Block All – most restrictive: blocks all inbound &outbound traffic (good for locking down a server)• Linux Web – use for Linux-based web servers; opensports 80 & 443 (HTTP/S) and 22 (SSH)• Windows Web – use for Windows-based webservers; opens ports 80 & 443 (HTTP/S) and 3389(RDP)
    • #1 – Click on “Networking” TabClick
    • #1 – Click on “Security Group”
    • #1 – Security Groups Default Security Groups: Default Block All Default Core Default Linux Web Default Windows Web Select Default Security Group Click “Clone” to copy
    • #1 – Add Details to Security GroupAdd Details
    • #1 – Click “Save” to Create Security Group Once saved, the Security Group replicates across all available GoGriddata centers within secondsReplication
    • Step #2 – Define a Policy
    • #2 – About PoliciesPolicy Governs the behavior of the Firewall By default, the Firewall drops all traffic Transport Protocol• TCP (HTTP/web traffic)• UDP (DNS-type traffic)• ICMP (Ping) Policy Direction• Each policy must have a direction – Inbound, Outbound, or Any (both directions) Address• For each policy, you can specify particular IP addresses:o 0.0.0.0/0 or Any – any IP addresso Self – any server connected to this Security Groupo Any server in the specified Security Groupo A specific IP address – such as 50.145.33.17o A specific subnet – such as 50.145.33.1/24
    • #2 – Select a Security Group & Click “Edit”Policies
    • #2 – Delete a Policy
    • #2 – Add a PolicyCustom PortInformation
    • #2 – Special “SMTP” Case Note: If you try to Add port 25 (SMTP), you’ll receive a warning SMTP (Port 25) requires special permission to use
    • Step # 3 – Add a Connection
    • #3 – About ConnectionsConnections (Servers) A Connection is a server and an interface Connections are local (for a particular data center), but policies are global Only one Security Group per connection
    • #3 – Click on “Connection” Link in “Networking” Tab
    • #3 – Click “Add” to Add a New ConnectionClick “Add”Select “Data Center”Enter Details & SelectServer & Security Group
    • #3 – Click “Save” to Create the Connection “Active” Connections will be displayed
    • GoGrid Firewall ServiceEnabled
    • #3 – Security Groups Active in Grid View
    • #3 – Firewall-Protected Cloud Server DetailsNote: Security Group&Firewall Status
