Indeni launches new Cloudrail cloud security analytics tool
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — India, a leading security infrastructure automation company, today announced the release of a new cloud-based security analysis tool.
cloudrail scans Terraform files to help security engineers identify issues, predict exposures before deployment, and provide developers with safeguards. Security professionals can use it to enforce the requirements most important to their organization. This improves collaboration between development, security, and operations, reducing the likelihood of data breaches without slowing delivery times.
Research by IBM and the Ponemon Institute found that the average cost of a cloud-related data breach in 2020 was $4.4 million, and cloud misconfigurations were the most common culprit. Security issues are also among the top three reasons for deployment delays, according to a recent survey by the Advanced Technology Research Center (ATARC).
A “shift to the left” approach that involves security earlier in the development process helps organizations avoid making more expensive patches later or delaying deployment.
However, manual security reviews are time consuming and difficult to manage as businesses grow. Cloudrail eliminates this so security professionals can focus on strategic priorities while deploying cloud environments with confidence.
Cloudrail is a container that easily integrates into CI/CD pipelines.
It takes a snapshot of your Terraform blueprint and cloud environment to understand resource relationships and identify only issues that can be exploited by a malicious actor. This translates to three times fewer alerts than comparable cloud security posture management tools and IaC solutions.
“Existing solutions catch issues too late in development and with too many false positives, leading to a lot of unnecessary alerts and frustration for developers,” said Indeni CEO and Founder Yoni Leitersdorf. “Cloudrail flags issues your developers are likely to fix, rather than giving them a long list of items.”
As organizations embrace new digital transformation initiatives, an increasing number will need both network security and cloud security solutions. Indeni’s deep knowledge and partnerships uniquely position it to deliver enhanced security from every angle. Indeni’s partnership with Check Point Software Technologies is one example.
“As a leader in cloud security, Check Point Software Technologies provides the highest level of security for any cloud environment with offerings that cover both cloud practitioners and Cloud DevOps. In order to modernize security programs, organizations must use both ‘shift left’ and ‘shift right’ security approaches,” said Dr. Dorit Dor, vice president of product at Check Point Software. “Left shift moves security testing early in the development cycle while right shift provides better visibility and defense capabilities in production. Together, Check Point’s CloudGuard Posture Management and Indeni’s Cloudrail can improve your organization’s cloud security posture by supporting left and right gestures.”
Indeni is now offering 200 free assessments per month until April 2021. After that, users can continue to complete 30 assessments per month for free. To learn more about how it works and get started today, visit indeni.com/cloudrail.
India automates best practices for network security and cloud security. Its security infrastructure platform automates health and compliance checks for major firewalls, including Check Point, Palo Alto and Fortinet devices, to maximize uptime and efficiency. Its infrastructure-as-code security analysis tool, Cloudrail, is now available on indeni.com/cloudrail.
