Andover, MA, November 18, 2010 – NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ:NAVI, news, filings), a premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed application, managed messaging and managed cloud services, today announced new management and control features for the NaviCloud platform. The new features – Role Based Access Control, Airlock, and Dynamic Resource Instrumentation – provide increased flexibility, security, and control for cloud-based enterprise applications.
- Role Based Access Control (RBAC): RBAC enables organizations to assign and match user access privileges to individual roles and responsibilities – improving security and compliance, while simplifying IT administration and reducing costs. RBAC provides the flexibility to customize administrative access for any management or governance structure.
- Airlock: Airlock enables IT administrators to isolate and lock down specific IT environments. Airlock can be used for importing virtual machines into the NaviCloud environment or for diagnostic testing of pre-production workloads without compromising the production environment.
- Dynamic Resource Instrumentation: Dynamic Resource Instrumentation provides granular control of NaviCloud resources. IT organizations can create rules and policies to prioritize computing resources according to business processes and requirements.
These new features are accessed through AppCenter, NaviSite’s innovative, web-based console for creating, managing, and monitoring resources on the NaviCloud platform. AppCenter’s intuitive interface enables customers to configure, modify, decommission, and even clone resources through drop-down menus and simple point-and-click operations.
