Step 1: Purchase HSS Quota

Updated at: Sep 02, 2021 GMT+08:00

Purchase HSS for your servers. The premium edition is provided for free if you have purchased the WTP edition.

Recommended Editions

HSS comes in basic, enterprise, premium, and WTP editions. Table 1 describes their application scenarios. For more information, see Editions.

You are advised to deploy HSS on all your servers so that if a virus infects one of them, it will not be able to spread to others and damage your entire network.

Table 1 Recommended editions

Edition

Billing Mode

Scenario

Basic

  • Pay-per-use
  • Yearly/Monthly

Test and protect individual users' servers and accounts.

The basic edition only provides part of the baseline check and intrusion detection functions, and displays the security risk overview of assets on the cloud.

Enterprise edition

  • Pay-per-use
  • Yearly/Monthly

Help servers meet basic security compliance requirements (such as virus and Trojan scan, one-click vulnerability fixing, and intrusion detection).

Premium

Yearly/Monthly

For servers that need to meet high security requirements (for example, to protect websites or critical services), the premium or WTP edition is recommended.

You are advised to enable the premium or WTP edition for servers that process critical services or are exposed to high risks, for example, servers that expose EIPs, application servers that store important data, and database servers.

Web Tamper Protection

Yearly/Monthly

For servers that need to protect websites and applications from tampering, the WTP edition is recommended.

The premium edition is available for free if you have purchased the WTP edition.

Constraints

  • A quota can be bound to a server to protect it, on condition that the agent on the server is online.
  • HSS cannot protect HUAWEI CLOUD servers across regions. If the servers and HSS quota are in different regions, unsubscribe from the quota and purchase HSS in the region where the server is deployed.
  • To protect HUAWEI CLOUD servers, non-HUAWEI CLOUD servers can access only the CN-Hong Kong region. You need to purchase protection quotas in this region and use the installation packages or installation command in this region to install the agent on non-HUAWEI CLOUD servers.
