Cloud operations and security teams are tasked with deploying and managing workloads in highly dynamic, flexible public cloud environments, paying close attention to policy configuration, patch management, connection policies and access control. The complexity of cloud security operations increases significantly as cloud environments grow in terms of number of instances, accounts, regions and operations. Simply moving an existing workload to the cloud without the appropriate security management measures in place for visibility or control can leave workloads exposed and less secure than if they remained within an enterprise datacenter.
Security for today’s public cloud environments is fundamentally different from traditional datacenter security. Enterprise datacenters deploy layers of physical security measures – firewalls, routers, switches, etc.- to manage connection policies, access controls and zone designations. Lift-and-shift approaches to security are bound to fail in the software-defined, instantaneously configurable world of the public cloud, where simple changes to security policies can expose private resources to everyone.
Effective cloud security requires a centralized, consolidated platform that is built from the ground up for the cloud and gives administrators complete visibility and active control of their cloud environments. Dome9 Arc offers end-to-end control over the security posture of public cloud environments from a centralized console. The innovative SaaS platform provides a broad set of security and compliance controls, deep visualization, multi-factor authentication, and policy automation for verifiable and comprehensive security management.
Dome9 Arc is the only solution for cloud security operations offering end-to-end visibility, in-place remediation, and continuous security enforcement in a single platform. With no software to install or agents to manage, Dome9 Arc can be set up in under five minutes enabling administrators the ability to manage security, compliance and governance across accounts, regions and clouds. Dome9 provides the right combination of cost-effective, comprehensive security management coupled with detailed visualization for security operations needed in today’s public cloud environment.
“As a security department, it’s very important to have a quick, reliable, and current view of the configuration and control over the security settings of cloud accounts and assets. This enables us to automate controls and react quicker with fewer resources.”
