CloudPassage Achieves AWS Cloud Security Competency for Its Halo Solution

CloudPassage has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) Security Competency for CloudPassage Halo. The AWS Competency Program is designed to provide AWS cloud customers with qualified AWS Partner Network (APN) partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven success in specialized solution and vertical areas.

The CloudPassage Halo security and compliance automation platform is purpose-built to deliver a broad range of controls in any application-hosting environment, at any scale, on-demand. CloudPassage attained security competency based on an in-depth AWS Cloud technical evaluation of Halo.

CloudPassage Halo complements AWS cloud security by providing an additional layer of enhanced security directly at the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, protecting the applications and data on that instance.

This gives information security professionals complete visibility and a consistent security posture across their entire infrastructure with a single platform. In addition, Halo’s portability means as customers migrate more applications to AWS from traditional environments, their workloads stay protected without any additional work.”
