it specifically needs to be application based since the servers are all virtualized tenants.

Yes, nested hypervisors would be nice, but we’re not there yet 😉

Hi Ed,


Are you after an application firewall or a host firewall? Most vendors have moved away from software installed on top of an OS to appliance style setups as they are easier to support.

Hi people,


Just a simple question, but with a not so simple answer.


We manage considerable clients with ‘cloud’ based servers within Telstra’s utility hosting.

We used to use TMG as a firewall / gateway / security for clients who requested these features,  but this is no longer possible.


I need recommendations on application based (non VM) firewalls which can be installed on server 08 / 12 and capable of the same feature set as TMG. Not as easy to find now..


So, I ask my esteemed peers for words of wisdom.

Well, words, anyway.


Kind regards,

Ed Hallett
