Lumeta, a provider of network situational awareness solutions, has announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) subscribers can now use Lumeta Enterprise Situational Intelligence (ESI) to gain real-time network situational awareness of their hybrid clouds – of both AWS cloud hosting environments and on-premises physical or virtual infrastructure.
For enterprise and government customers looking to continuously monitor their network security posture, a new Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for Lumeta ESI is available in the AWS Marketplace.
By using the Lumeta ESI AMI within AWS, IT professionals can:
- Gain critical insight into the real-time, dynamic nature of the cloud, by performing discovery within a private virtual cloud instance inside AWS. This is accomplished by “pointing” Lumeta ESI internally within AWS to crawl and discover virtual routers, firewalls, gateways, AMIs and other cloud resources.
- Get visibility into the entire enterprise while taking advantage of the AWS compute resource characteristics to run the Lumeta ESI Command Center. Instead of deploying an ESI Command Center on-premises, spin up a virtual ESI Command Center instance in the AWS cloud hosting environment and connect it to ESI Scouts (sensors) deployed within the network to assess enterprise-based network assets and routes.
- Continuously monitor the network edge. From the ESI Command Center within AWS, interrogate and analyze firewall gaps on the enterprise network edge in real time. Because Lumeta ESI listens to and crawls virtual or physical networks in near-real time, ESI enables organizations to gain network situational awareness of their presence in private clouds, public cloud hosting and hybrid cloud environments.
“Organizations are rapidly moving to the cloud, and AWS is the leader in IaaS cloud computing,” said Reggie Best, chief product officer at Lumeta. “The availability of Lumeta ESI on AWS makes it easy for customers to have complete visibility into their virtual cloud deployments, their on-premises infrastructure, and their network edge. IT can scan their AWS cloud, their traditional enterprise and their Internet-facing presence for a comprehensive view of the network.”
Lumeta ESI version 2.1.1 is available now from the AWS Marketplace as a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) offering. Under the BYOL model, AWS customers can purchase their ESI license directly from Lumeta or a Lumeta cyber-security integration partner.
Headquartered in Somerset, New Jersey, Lumeta has operations throughout the world. The company’s network situational awareness solutions identify and map every IP connected device on a network and discover inbound and outbound leak paths, giving IT management a clear, comprehensive assessment of network vulnerabilities, cyber-threat risks and policy violations from network edge to core.
