New Packaging and Pricing for Award-winning Cloud Security Platform CloudPassage Halo

Lower-cost options, flex licensing, pay-as-you-go, AWS Marketplace private offers, free onboarding among the updates to make Halo’s economics even better

San Francisco, CA , June 25, 2020

CloudPassage, a recognized leader in cloud computing security and compliance, announced new packaging and pricing options for its award-winning Halo cloud security platform, effective immediately. These new options give more companies the ability to put Halo’s proven capabilities to work in a wider range of deployment scenarios with even better economics.

As the first mover in cloud workload security, CloudPassage has maintained a unique perspective on how the market category has evolved. Public cloud computing adoption by mainstream and mid-size enterprises has been accelerating for some time. This trajectory has surged in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis and the resulting shift to remote-working models.

“The recent surge in cloud adoption and financial constraints associated with COVID-19 have left many information security teams struggling,” said Carson Sweet, CloudPassage CEO and cofounder. “We’re hearing stories about teams being crushed by accelerated cloud adoption plans, which have to be managed on top of existing security requirements—all while budgets and staff are being cut and attacks are on the rise. We’re introducing permanent changes to our packaging and pricing models to help companies gain access to the automation they need and reflect our commitment to being a responsive cloud security partner.”

 

Updated CloudPassage Halo Offers

CloudPassage’s new Halo packaging and pricing is designed to make the platform accessible to a broader range of enterprises, even those operating under strict financial lock-down. Special onboarding and professional services offers are to assist companies with constrained team resources to get Halo deployed quickly and effectively with minimal effort. Existing customers should contact their CloudPassage account manager or customer success to discuss how they can take advantage of these new offers.

Halo Platform Editions and Service Rates

  • Halo Essentials is designed for small to mid-sized cloud deployments with less complex organizational and operational requirements. Halo Essentials offers highly competitive list service rates for IaaS accounts, server workloads, and container environments, with additional discounts of up to 65% available.
  • Halo Enterprise remains the go-to solution for very high-scale cloud deployments with complex organizations, operational workflows, and multiple integrations. Halo Enterprise list service rates have been reduced for IaaS accounts, server workloads, and container environments. Additional discounts of up to 85% are available.

More Flexible Subscription Options

  • Halo Flex Licensing – CloudPassage now offers Flex Licensing for customers with fixed monthly budgets or with frequent shifts between server, container, and serverless workload quantities.
  • Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) – Halo Essentials is now available as a monthly pay-as-you-go subscription, enabling companies to leverage Halo without commitment.
  • AWS Marketplace Private Offers – Halo subscriptions are now available through AWS Marketplace private offers, making procurement faster and adding savings for customers with AWS enterprise agreements.

Special Onboarding Offers

  • Free Initial Onboarding – CloudPassage is providing free initial onboarding for new Halo deployments through the end of 2020 in order to assist security teams with limited time to deploy a cloud workload security platform.
  • Reduced Professional Services Rates – To assist teams who need additional Halo integration and customization, CloudPassage is offering deeply discounted rates on professional services through the end of 2020.

 

Why We Are Making These Changes

The economic impacts of COVID-19 will not be short-lived. We’ve barely begun to understand how our day-to-day activities will change and how a completely new way of living and working will impact how businesses operate. And the pandemic itself has not run its course. In this fog of uncertainty, there are two tenets that have already been recognized broadly:

  • Cloud-centric technology strategies are critical for pandemic preparedness. Companies across the board are aggressively accelerating cloud adoption plans, both to mitigate the current crisis and prepare for the next one.
  • Spending discipline is tighter than ever and will stay that way for the foreseeable future. Technology owners are under enormous pressure to reduce costs, negotiate more flexible purchasing terms, and consolidate products to maximize investment value.
