Orchestration extends malware detection to cloud environments for improved security posture in hybrid environments
WALTHAM, Massachusetts, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudLock®, the leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cloud Cybersecurity Platform, today announced its expanded cybersecurity orchestration ecosystem, delivering advanced malware detection capabilities through integrations with OPSWAT and VMRay to complement the company's existing integration with the threat emulation capabilities of Check Point. The first-of-its-kind integration unifies protection against malware and the growing volume of ransomware across hybrid cloud environments.
"The threat landscape - particularly for malware - is evolving as more organizations shift workloads to the cloud and adopt online business productivity and operations applications," said John Amaral, Head of Product Delivery at CloudLock. "By extending the power of CloudLock's cloud-native, multi-mode CASB through integrations with leading providers, our mutual customers gain powerful insight and threat mitigation capabilities to secure environments from the growing barrage of malware."
With a 30x increase in connected cloud apps over the past two years combined with the increasing volume of malware and ransomware headlines (i.e., Medstar Health) over recent weeks tells a disturbing story about the evolving nature of this threat vector and the resulting damage to the organization's productivity, safety, reputation, and bottom line. CloudLock is uniquely positioned to thwart ransomware attacks on cloud infrastructure through an API-driven, cloud-native approach to cloud cybersecurity. By performing extended analysis across an organization's disparate cloud environments, the CloudLock Cybersecurity OrchestratorTM allows customers to identify and remediate instances of malware that would otherwise go unnoticed, with support for Amazon S3, Dropbox, Box, Google Apps, and Office 365.
CloudLock further helps security analysts by enabling proactive, automated cross-platform response actions to mitigate risk and provide deep security intelligence. CloudLock integrates with customers' established security operations workflows via APIs and out-of-box integrations to drive policy-based threat mitigation and remediation. In addition to identifying malware through integration, CloudLock can detect anomalous activity within monitored cloud environments indicative of malware infection, such as user logins from suspicious locations or risky data sharing practices, for additional threat protection beyond initial malware identification.
