Spot Security is now generally available, according to NetApp, a multinational software business focused on data and the cloud. Designed for the cloud, Spot Security offers a solution for continuous evaluation and analysis of cloud security posture. Spot Security would make it simple for DevOps and SecOps teams to work together to find configuration errors, shrink their potential attack surface, and guarantee compliance.
The agentless technology from Spot Security examines the connections between cloud resources to offer clear visibility and prioritized actions, automatically determining each cloud resource’s potential exposure and surfacing critical security threats based on their potential impact on the organization. These automated processes would reduce alert fatigue, maintain the safety of cloud infrastructure, and boost the productivity of operations personnel.
“DevOps engineers are constantly asked to deliver solutions to a wide range of challenges that can impact the efficiency and operations of their business,” said Azzedine Benameur, Head of Spot Security for Spot by NetApp. “Spot Security provides DevOps and SecOps a solution that meets the critical requirement to ensure the security of their dynamic cloud environment, further innovating the Spot by NetApp CloudOps suite of solutions that automate and optimize operations in the cloud.”
