Consumption of public cloud infrastructure services continues to increase, requiring security teams to maintain a comprehensive and up-to-date inventory of cloud assets in-use across multiple environments, such as Azure and AWS, throughout their enterprise.
According to 451 Group, 69 percent of organizations plan to be running a multi-cloud environment by the end of 2019; which means most organizations will require visibility of critical IT assets in a variety of locations. However, due to the high rates of expansion in the cloud attack surface, gaining the necessary comprehensive visibility continues to prove challenging for many companies.
“In larger cloud environments, correct configuration of the control plane has become extremely complex, leaving the organization’s information and workloads at risk…,” said Neil MacDonald, Distinguished VP Analyst at Gartner.
CloudPassage is now offering Cloud Secure for Azure, delivering comprehensive security visibility of public cloud infrastructure as part of its Halo platform, an automated Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solution that delivers visibility, protection and continuous compliance monitoring for compute, storage, database, networking and identity services.
The CloudPassage Halo security platform enables unprecedented insight to help you reduce cyber risk and maintain compliance across your public cloud infrastructure by providing comprehensive visibility and configuration best practices for applications running in Microsoft Azure or AWS.
CloudPassage Halo is the most comprehensive public cloud infrastructure security solution available on the market. Unlike point-solutions that provide an incomplete and disjointed view of public cloud services, Cloud Secure provides a comprehensive, integrated view of IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) environments and resources from a single interface.
While other tools can identify vulnerabilities in data hosted by a single provider, such as AWS or Azure, CloudPassage offers unprecedented insights for both providers with its single-solution, single pane of glass visibility. Using its outside-in and inside-out security visibility of both the control plane and compute plane, the Halo platform gives you actionable information about critical risks other tools miss.
