Since its launch in 2011, the Dome9 Arc SaaS platform has seen widespread adoption from public cloud security architects and operations teams. Dome9's ability to visualize a customer's network security posture, detect misconfigurations, model gold standard policies, protect against attacks and identity theft, enables security best practices in the cloud for any enterprise. In 2016 alone, Dome9 announced a variety of features, including its new, robust Compliance Engine, an advanced IAM protection solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its achievement of AWS Security Competency and ISO 27001 Certification. The company augmented this with SOC 2 Type 2 certification in early January 2017.
In addition, Dome9 recently announced pay-as-you-scale economics to cloud security for its customers on AWS marketplace. Customers that sign up for the Dome9 Arc SaaS service on AWS Marketplace will now pay for the service through their integrated AWS bill. With the Dome9 Flex for AWS billing model, customers reap the rewards of truly fractional consumption by paying for enterprise-class cloud infrastructure security and compliance only when instances and services are running in their AWS environment.
Dome9's recent technology advancements and business growth have resulted in multiple industry acknowledgments, including being named as a CRN Emerging Vendor for 2016 and as a finalist in the 2016-2017 Cloud Awards.
