Microsoft Azure is a powerful, flexible, scalable infrastructure platform for hosting applications in the cloud. But security challenges don’t disappear; enterprises still need to protect themselves against phishing and social engineering attacks, misconfigurations in cloud assets, lateral movement by attackers, and other causes of data breaches and service interruptions.
CYBERSHIELD is a modern detection and response service and is an ideal solution. It collects data from the major management and security tools native to Azure, combines that with information from across the organization’s IT footprint, and uses advanced analytics to detect malicious behaviours. It also provides context for rapid incident response and supports cloud reporting and compliance.
Go ahead and ramp up your applications. As a native cloud-based tool, CYBERSHIELD can scale up immediately to support increased activity and new applications while maintaining continuous security coverage.
CYBERSHIELD is also designed to integrate quickly and seamlessly with new data sources, wherever they are. Through integrations with Azure, AWS and on-premises environments, CYBERSHIELD is prepared to serve enterprises with hybrid environments as they move applications and services onto additional platforms.
Traditional vulnerability assessment solutions can’t keep up with the highly dynamic nature of cloud environments. Vulnerable assets can come online and operate for extended periods of time before traditional solutions identify their risk (if they do so before the asset spins down, that is). We ensure assets are continually assessed, without requiring scan engines or waiting for scan windows. As a result, we know before attackers do when vulnerable assets have been introduced to their environments.
User Behavior Analytics (UBA) measure baseline activities by users identified in Azure Active Directory, then flag unusual behaviours. This would include behaviours that indicate compromised user credentials, such as atypical authentication requests and unusual single sign-on (SSO) activities.
Besides generating its own alerts, CYBERSHIELD provides flexible dissemination of alerts generated by the Azure Security Center.
