Why cloud firewalls

Determine which network traffic you allow to the inside and outside with gridscale’s cloud firewall.

With gridscale’s cloud firewall you can protect your IT services with just a few clicks. But that’s not where the easiness stops: rule sets and smart templates help you avoid mundane work, keeping the full infrastructure performance at the same time.

Smart rule sets control the cloud firewall

Access control with rule sets

With your rules set you determine which network traffic you allow to the inside and outside. Define individual rules for each server, based on IP addresses and ports.

Rule sets as templates

We offer you ready-made rule sets, e.g. for your web or database server. So the cloud firewall configuration for your servers is done in no time. Of course you can also create your own templates.

Automated adjustments

Take advantage of our passion to automate all infrastructure features: When you make a change, such as a port change in a template, the rule set changes automatically for all servers using that template. That’s central policy management!

Full Performance

Loss of performance due to the cloud firewall? Not with gridscale. With us, you won't experience any wideband restrictions or additional latencies.


Our networking technology enables gridscale’s infrastructure components to securely communicate with each other, the internet and on-premise networks.

Create secure private networks or breakout networks and take advantage of the lowest latencies.


Load Balancer

gridscale’s load balancers are fully-managed and enable you to distribute incoming traffic to your virtual machines automatically.

You can modify your work without worrying about the availability or performance of your infrastructure.


Pay-as-you-go, per minute!

Never lose track of costs – you only pay for what you use and monitor your costs in our real-time usage report. Scale your infrastructure resources at anytime to deliver the best project possible.
