LAS VEGAS AND HOUSTON, TX – August 4, 2015 – Alert Logic, a leading provider of Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, today announced at the Black Hat Conference in Las Vegas, NV availability of Alert Logic Cloud Insight, a cloud-native vulnerability assessment and configuration management solution designed for customers running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Alert Logic Cloud Insight integrates with AWS security features to provide an integrated view of potential host and application level vulnerabilities for customers deploying on the AWS Cloud. Once identified, Alert Logic Cloud Insight takes the next step and identifies proactive remediation actions that help customers eliminate potential risks across their entire deployment.
Alert Logic Cloud Insight builds on various AWS APIs including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), AWS Identity and Access Management (AWS IAM), and AWS CloudTrail to provide auto-discovery capabilities and continuous monitoring to identify vulnerabilities, analyze their potential impact and create a prioritized remediation plan showing the vulnerabilities that will be eliminated with each step. The business is presented with a real-time, up-to-date, consolidated view of its security posture.
“Managing security while maintaining the agility of the cloud is fundamentally different than in any other environment,” said Gray Hall, CEO of Alert Logic. “With Alert Logic Cloud Insight we are delivering an innovative solution that gives businesses an added layer of visibility for workloads running on AWS – actionable intelligence to identify and eliminate risk across instances and applications while not slowing the business down.”
With traditional cloud security technologies, companies must perform multiple manual steps to run vulnerability scans and check configurations on a regular basis, which still only provides point-in-time results. Even when IT remediates an application vulnerability, it is difficult to ensure the vulnerability has truly been eradicated. Cloud Insight moves away from what could be a manual, error-prone process, to an automated, continuous, remediation-centric approach.
“Our customers continue to tell us that security is top of mind, which is why it is our number one priority at AWS,” said Terry Wise, Vice President, Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Security-as-a-Service solutions built on AWS and designed to complement AWS-native security features enable customers to maintain the highest levels of protection while achieving the agility, elasticity, and cost savings of the AWS Cloud. We are very excited at what Alert Logic has achieved with Cloud Insight and look forward to teaming with them as they expand their Security-as-a-Service offerings on AWS.”
With Alert Logic Cloud Insight, companies will benefit from the following:
“Unlike traditional security tools that require manual configuration, significant training and expense, Cloud Insight identifies threats and vulnerabilities across our network, system, and application layers, with minimal resource requirements,” said James Hirmas, Co-Founder & CEO of GenomeNext. “Cloud Insight automatically tracks additions, moves or deletions across our AWS environment, identifying potential exposures in both the host and AWS service layer that could ultimately lead to a compromise.”
