Securing Amazon Web Services

Issue 8 2021 Cyber Security, IT infrastructure, Commercial (Industry)

Sophos has unveiled advancements to Sophos Cloud Optix that automate and simplify the detection and response of security incidents across Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure.

Powered by new machine learning models from SophosAI, the Sophos Cloud Optix cloud security posture management solution now continuously analyses AWS CloudTrail to build a picture of individual user activity. It brings AWS CloudTrail events to life in a clear and detailed timeline view of user activities, high risk anomalies and security and compliance incidents across all AWS accounts with remediation guidance for security teams.

“Sorting through and making sense of potentially thousands of user activity events to identify suspicious activity used to be near impossible,” said Scott Barlow, Sophos vice president of global MSP and cloud alliances. “Sophos is transforming this resource intensive process, giving security teams the answers they need with the click of a button. Security teams can instantly pinpoint unusual activity – such as actions not previously taken by a user or actions being performed outside of normal business hours, for example – and focus their investigations on the most high-risk alerts with confidence.”

Accelerate with AWS, Secure with Cloud Optix

Sophos Cloud Optix provides visibility into risky blind spots. It secures AWS and other cloud workloads against advanced threats and cloud environment misconfigurations and is easily managed in the cloud-based Sophos Central platform alongside Sophos’ portfolio of next-generation cybersecurity solutions and services.

Cloud Optix offers extensive AWS security service integrations, including integration with the new Amazon Inspector. Cloud Optix also integrates with AWS Security Hub, Amazon GuardDuty, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon Macie, AWS Systems Manager and Patch Manager, AWS Firewall Manager, AWS IAM Access Analyzer, Amazon Detective and Amazon Elastic File System.
