Cavirin Launches First-of-Its-Kind Compliance-Automation Software, Dissolving Critical Barriers to Cloud Adoption

Solution Protects Enterprises and SaaS Vendors by Continuously Scanning Their Internal and Cloud Environments to Ensure Security and Compliance

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - (AWS re: Invent 2014 Kiosk #K1) -- Cavirin today unveiled its breakthrough cloud security-and-compliance-automation software, filling a critical market gap that has stalled cloud adoption. A breach of regulations, such as PCI for credit-card data or HIPAA in healthcare, can expose companies to massive liability, crippling fines, or the erosion of its reputation and customer base. 

The Cavirin solution, which was designed to suit even the most highly regulated market segments -- government, finance, retail, insurance, and the like -- continuously monitors the entire IT environment, from datacenter to cloud, flagging policy violations and security issues. Several of the company's high-profile customers, such as RMS and SugarCRM, have already deployed the solution and are reaping its benefits.

"We are excited to be working with innovative companies like Cavirin to address critical issues around cloud security and compliance," said Bobby Soni, chief platform and services officer for RMS. RMS' models and software help more than 400 insurers, financial markets, corporations, and public agencies evaluate and manage catastrophe risks around the world.

Compatible with Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenStack, and VMware environments, Cavirin replaces a jumble of products and piecemeal systems that are -- at best -- partial solutions to the problem of enforcing compliance in a dynamic environment.

Cavirin's features and benefits include:

  • An easy-to-scan compliance "report card" with a pass-or-fail grade, making it easy to identify violations that could expose companies to catastrophic financial and legal risks
  • Agentless auditing and policy mapping compares the IT environment against defined policies and flags violations
  • Deep integration with cloud technologies enables immediate detection and compliance scanning of all newly deployed instances, whether approved or rogue
  • Continuous monitoring provides a superior alternative to periodic audits that may not expose policy violations until it's too late

"Our solution was developed to take the fear out of cloud security and provide our customers with software that enables continuous compliance and alleviation of threats," said Purnima Padmanabhan, Cavirin CEO. "We are seeing a massive customer demand for our product from companies that realize that even the smallest error can cost an organization its credibility."

The new software can be purchased directly through Cavirin or via the AWS Marketplace.

Cavirin will debut its new software at AWS re: Invent on November 11-14, 2014 in Las Vegas. The company can be found in Kiosk K1.
