Cloud security and compliance challenges hinder organizations’ ability to securely and confidently adopt public cloud. The dynamic nature of cloud, coupled with the complexity of multiple cloud service providers, multiple development teams, massive volumes of data, and daily – if not hourly – changes can quickly overwhelm security teams with lack of visibility, context and control.
RedLock redefines security for the multi-cloud era.
Security and compliance teams require complete visibility and context of an organization’s multi-cloud deployments to fully understand risk and compliance. RedLock® public cloud security and compliance service uses machine learning to understand the role and behavior of each cloud resource, and enriches visibility by correlating data from external sources – such as vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence tools and SIEMs – to deliver unmatched insight.
While the cloud enables agility by allowing users to create, modify and destroy resources on-demand, this often occurs without any security oversight. RedLock enables you to continuously monitor cloud resources for configuration drift. With hundreds of built-in policies to measure industry-standard best practices, including CIS, NIST and PCI, and the ability to craft custom policies, RedLock captures and records security violations so you have a historical record of your compliance posture.
Because it’s common for multiple users to have privileged access in the cloud, it is imperative to monitor your entire multi-cloud environment for anomalous user activities. Unfortunately, the distributed nature of the cloud, with multiple accounts and regions, makes this difficult. RedLock consumes cloud-native API-layer metadata to establish behavior baselines, flagging deviations that signal account compromises and insider threats.
As is the case in on-premises environments, unpatched hosts in the cloud are vulnerable to attack. In the cloud, environments are constantly changing, and IP addresses are elastic, which makes stand-alone vulnerability management tools unreliable and ineffective. RedLock integrates with external and cloud-native vulnerability services to continuously scan your environment for unpatched hosts, especially those exposed to the internet.
The absence of a physical network boundary to the internet increases the attack surface in the cloud by orders of magnitude. Monitoring network traffic is necessary for detecting suspicious activity. Traditional tools create security blind spots. RedLock ingests cloud-native API-layer metadata to help investigate and respond to threats in your multi-cloud environment.
While point security products may be able to address each discrete challenge, they lack context and create alert fatigue. RedLock automatically computes risk scores for every cloud resource based on the severity of business risks, violations and anomalies, making it simple to prioritize the most important issues. From there you can have RedLock automatically remediate misconfigured policies, orchestrate security best practices, or send alerts via email or to third-party tools, such as Slack, and Splunk.
