The LORIC™ platform provides threat visibility and ensures compliance of an organization's entire cloud footprint by combining threat detection, predictive analytics, security configuration management, and automated incident response into a single solution. LORIC monitors enterprise cloud applications such as AWS, Box, Salesforce, Microsoft® Office 365™ and GitHub, and promotes the security of these services through a single pane of glass.

"Palerra's inclusion in Gartner's Cool Vendor report validates our vision and product leadership," said Rohit Gupta, founder and CEO of Palerra. "We look forward to delivering on our belief that the best security, and the best surveillance, never gets in the way of business operations. And that security, like so many other aspects of our day-to-day lives, should be automated."
