FortyCloud, a pioneer in Network Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, has announced the introduction of enhanced network visibility features. FortyCloud’s new SIEM and IDS capabilities would cater to the needs of enterprise customers, as they were highlighting SIEM and IDS as critical building blocks that were missing from their cloud security toolkit.
Many organizations would find that a lack of visibility into their cloud deployments is a major inhibitor to cloud adoption. Therefore, FortyCloud’s release of SIEM and IDS capabilities would be right on the mark. The collection of security events and real-time user and network flows by the FortyCloud solution elements, and the ability to deliver them to internal or external SIEM and IDS logics, would dramatically extend an organization’s view of its cloud deployment. This enhanced capability reveals access and authorization events, attack attempts and hazardous patterns.
“At FortyCloud, we are looking to provide a comprehensive security solution that complements security capabilities that are missing from the native cloud providers’ offerings,” said Amit Cohen, FortyCloud’s CEO. “Many of our enterprise customers were highlighting SIEM and IDS as critical building blocks that are missing from their cloud security toolkit. We are very happy to be able to bridge this gap for our customers and offer event collection as well as integration points allowing customers to bring their own SIEM and IDS solutions, thus making the cloud environment as secure as an enterprise data-center.”
These new capabilities add up to the broad security suite already available by FortyCloud that includes network firewall, Identity and Access Management (IAM), automation of security and cloud configurations, encryption of data-in-transit and cloud platform independence.
