With its easy to use interface, HeatShield is the simplest and safest way to configure and manage powerful firewalls across all of your CentOS servers without needing to SSH into any of them. HeatShield empowers all CentOS users, from beginners to experts, to secure their servers with a firewall.
Like all Linux distributions, CentOS uses the low-level iptables network firewall functionality included in the Linux kernel. However, because it can be very complicated, iptables can be difficult to use safely and correctly.
As developers continue to use more cloud servers to grow their businesses, they can also find themselves spending more and more time maintaining consistent firewall rules across all of their servers rather than focusing on the continued growth of their businesses.
This is where HeatShield comes in, tackling the problem head-on by making CentOS firewall management completely painless among any number of servers. HeatShield lets you quickly add and remove firewall rules across all of your servers without SSHing into them or running risky commands with superuser privileges.
HeatShield supports CentOS versions 5, 6, and 7 on both 32-bit and 64-bit x86 architectures.
