Valtix, a platform for multi-cloud network security, announces its summer release including a decryption and packet capture capability designed to enable incident responders to gain richer cloud security visibility.
Log4Shell was a universal wake-up call for the cloud security industry and taught us that no app can be considered invulnerable. In fact, research shows that 87% feel less confident about their cloud security now than they did prior to the incident and 78% of IT leaders lack clear visibility into what’s happening in their cloud environment.
With the update, Valtix enables security incident responders to know in what happened no matter which cloud their organization might leverage. Given the possibility of zero days, open-source vulnerabilities, and even cloud provider security issues, posture management is not enough. Now, the enterprise needs visibility into what is happening (or happened) and not just what exists.
“For enterprises, one of the many cloud security challenges they face is that they lose the rich visibility they had in the data center and what was essential to incident responders trying to understand what an adversary did or where they might be hiding,” said Douglas Murray, CEO at Valtix. “Our new multi-cloud incident response capability was created specifically to address this need and we’re excited about the partnership we’ve had with our customers in building this significant capability.” Key updates include:
- The industry’s only multi-cloud incident response capability that enables decryption and packet capture at scale with integration to security datastores for archiving and analysis.
- Advancements in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) security to enable enterprise adoption include contextual asset visibility, architectural flexibility, and the ability to correlate to malicious activity with a few clicks to identify command-n-control (C2) or data exfiltration.
- A new network dependency mapping dashboard that enables schematic diagram visualizations based on network traffic mapped to cloud assets.
- Enablement for secure user access to cloud-hosted apps in order to support zero trust architecture and remote workers.
- Improvements to Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) deployment options, which better enable delivery of advanced multi-cloud security as part of third-party service offerings.
