A threat detection solution purpose-built for the AWS shared security model
As more companies move critical business applications to the cloud, security of those applications and data remains paramount. But many companies are not aware of their responsibility for security in cloud environments such as AWS. AWS operates on a shared responsibility model for security. This means that while Amazon secures its infrastructure, the customer is responsible for the security of their applications, content, and systems. You need a security provider that has designed a solution specifically for the AWS shared responsibility environment.
USM Anywhere with its AWS-native sensor is a purpose-built solution for the AWS environment and provides you with essential threat detection, monitoring and security analysis capabilities for your AWS instances.
Automated vulnerability assessment and alerts
Automatically scan your AWS environment, alert on and correlate events and manage all configuration, analysis and reporting from a single console.
Purpose-built solution for AWS
Automated monitoring of CloudTrail, S3 and ELB Access Logs and preconfigured CloudFormation templates for easy sensor installation.
Integrated threat intelligence updates
Regular threat intelligence updates improve your ability to spot the latest threats and focus on responding to them rather than researching every alert.
The existence of the shared responsibility security model means that you are responsible for everything you deploy on top of AWS and for properly configuring AWS security features. And while Amazon supplies many tools to assist you with security, such as Security Groups and CloudTrail, the tools lack certain security capabilities that you need to have, including log management, configuration management, and vulnerability scanning.
USM Anywhere with its AWS-native sensor is a purpose-built security monitoring solution for the AWS environment that compliments the AWS shared responsibility model to provide you with essential threat detection, monitoring and security analysis capabilities for your AWS infrastructure. USM Anywhere automatically scans your AWS environment to detect assets, assess vulnerabilities and identify any misconfigurations on your instances or with you configuration of AWS itself. You get automated monitoring, alerts and event correlation. And you can manage all configuration, analysis and reporting from a single console.
Given the requirements of the AWS shared responsibility model, you need a security solution designed specifically for the AWS environment. Purpose-built for the AWS shared responsibility model, USM Anywhere with its AWS-native sensor automatically detects and secures your AWS instances and provides continuous monitoring. USM Anywhere supplies preconfigured CloudFormation templates to simplify provisioning of new sensors, allowing you easily expand the coverage you need as your environment scales. And USM Anywhere provides analysis of your use of built-in security features like AWS CloudTrail and Amazon EC2 Security Groups, delivering immediate insight into potential issues in your environment.
