Palerra Extends Leadership in Security Monitoring With Support for Amazon Inspector

Palerra LORIC Platform Provides Information Security Teams With Greater Visibility by Leveraging Amazon Inspector

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2016) - Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Palerra, today announced that its Palerra LORIC platform now integrates with Amazon Inspector to provide comprehensive visibility, threat protection, and compliance for enterprises that leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) for their mission-critical cloud workloads. With this integration, modern data science functions in Palerra LORIC can operate on Amazon Inspector data to provide IT and security teams with increased visibility and highly contextual insights into user, administrator, and application behavior across the AWS Cloud. 

"The explosive growth in the migration of mission-critical workloads to AWS has resulted in greater demands around continuous security monitoring and automation throughout the cloud application development and deployment lifecycle. Palerra is a leading vendor, offering automated activity monitoring, threat analytics, policy management and integrated incident response for the entire AWS infrastructure using an API-centric approach," said Adina Simu, VP of products for Palerra. "Today's announcement demonstrates our ongoing commitment to deliver outstanding value to AWS customers, ensuring that their entire cloud footprint is completely protected and sustainably compliant."

Amazon Inspector is an automated security assessment service that helps customers improve the security and compliance of their applications running on AWS by identifying potential security issues, vulnerabilities, or deviations from security standards. Amazon Inspector analyzes an application's configuration and activity, looking for a wide spectrum of vulnerabilities across AWS infrastructure, operating systems, and the network (e.g. verifying remote root login is disabled, checking OS versions, assessing virtual machine setting, and identifying open network ports). The LORIC platform working with Amazon Inspector gives enterprises sensitized early warning indicators of risk, a deep understanding of anomalous user and administrator behavior, and granular visibility into application state and infrastructure changes, thereby enabling ongoing compliance. With LORIC, AWS customers can benefit from the four values of CASBs, namely visibility, compliance, data security, and threat protection.

The LORIC Platfom supporting Amazon Inspector is available immediately and accessible from within the LORIC console at no additional cost. For more information, visit: http://palerra.com/platform/loric-aws-security/.
