CloudPassage Achieves AWS Security Competency

CloudPassage Halo Complements AWS Shared Responsibility Model With Enhanced Security for AWS Instances

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2016) - Today CloudPassage announced it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency for CloudPassage Halo. The AWS Competency Program is designed to provide AWS customers with qualified AWS Partner Network (APN) partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven success in specialized solution and vertical areas. CloudPassage attained security competency based on an in-depth AWS technical evaluation of Halo. The CloudPassage Halo security and compliance automation platform is purpose-built to deliver a broad range of controls in any application-hosting environment, at any scale, on-demand. 

While AWS has been architected to be one of the most flexible and secure cloud computing environments available for users to develop and run their applications, security is a collaborative effort between AWS and the AWS Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) customer. CloudPassage Halo complements AWS security by providing an additional layer of enhanced security directly at the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, protecting the applications and data on that instance.

"CloudPassage Halo was built with the cloud in mind, but is environment agnostic," said John Janetos, director of business development, CloudPassage. "With Halo, AWS customers can secure and monitor their public cloud instances, virtual private cloud, hybrid, or any combination of environments including the traditional data center. This gives information security professionals complete visibility and a consistent security posture across their entire infrastructure with a single platform. In addition, Halo's portability means as customers migrate more applications to AWS from traditional environments, their workloads stay protected without any additional work."
