Managed security services that protect your critical applications at every layer of your infrastructure, and help you to meet rigorous compliance demands
Knowing what should be happening and what shouldn’t be sounds simple on the surface but implementing this in practice can be a massive challenge. Intent-based security requires a consistent way to deliver policies to wherever your workloads live. With multiple clouds, there are different platforms, best practices, and syntax to learn to deliver a truly secure experience.
With Expedient Security CTRL, policies and controls are centrally managed through a curated set of tools to simplify securing your workloads across clouds.
By basing your security model on intent, you know what code and processes belong in your environment and can block everything else. Expedient’s Endpoint Security platform watches for those known good processes and terminates processes that should not be running. It also monitors for traditional file-based attacks and watches for behavior-based attacks where good processes are used maliciously.
Understanding your traffic flows is crucial to having success running your workloads in the data center or cloud. Not only does this potentially save you money on egress charges, it is also necessary to secure your applications’ traffic. Expedient takes an “every direction” approach to protecting network traffic from north-south attacks that originate outside your environment and east-west attacks from server to server. Our multi-cloud firewall can protect ingress and egress traffic so that attackers can’t get in and data doesn’t leak out. With our micro-segmentation, you can authorize applications to talk to one another and prevent unauthorized communications laterally. This will reduce your attack surface and keep attackers from spreading laterally inside your data center or cloud network. Additionally, our solution allows you to identify servers that have known vulnerabilities and neutralize the vulnerabilities granularly at the network level.
Imagine the front door to your house. Instead of leaving it open and trying to block unwanted guests individually, you lock your door and give keys to authorized guests. It’s much easier to allow access to selected groups rather trying to deny access individually. This is how we think about identity access. Our identity access management platform can simplify authorization by providing a consistent front door allowing you to control the lifecycle of access to your cloud workloads.
Now that you know what, who, and how things are intended to work in our clouds, how do you know when unintended things are happening? Collecting security logs and events is a good start but when you’re using multiple clouds, having a single platform to consolidate them gives you a comprehensive view of the security of your workloads. Our SIEM centralizes collection of events from across clouds and analyzes them for security anomalies to find attacks before it’s too late.
In every environment, Expedient provides a basic layer of security to ensure the safety of workloads.
