Fidelis Cybersecurity has announced integration with Amazon VPC traffic mirroring that allows customers to continuously monitor network traffic for threats and data loss directly through Fidelis Network sensors in the cloud.
Applications and workloads are continuing to migrate to the cloud but network security visibility for cloud-based applications has not occurred at the same pace. This expanded attack surface gives attackers more weaknesses to exploit, making cloud network traffic analysis critical for threat detection and hunting, as well as for detecting data loss. Previously, this required the use of agents or other third-party solutions as there was no reliable native high-speed mirroring capability available from the underlying fabric.
Fidelis Network, a component of the Fidelis Elevate platform, is now fully approved and integrated with Amazon VPC traffic mirroring, enabling Fidelis customers to quickly deploy cloud network traffic analysis for north-south and east-west communications of EC2 instances. The solution also provides a monitoring boundary between VNETs for Fidelis Network sensors deployed in Amazon VPCs and customer applications and workloads.
Customers can also increase their cloud security by adding the Fidelis Endpoint detection and response (EDR) and Fidelis Deception components of Fidelis Elevate. Unifying these components provides customers with an automated threat detection, hunting and response platform which can be managed inhouse or by Fidelis’ Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service.
Tim Roddy, VP product management, Fidelis Cybersecurity said “AWS’ native Amazon VPC traffic mirroring capability makes it easy to quickly deploy Fidelis’ network traffic analysis for north-south and east-west communications of EC2 instances.
“We’ve worked closely with Amazon on integration-testing and being fully approved to have Fidelis Network sensors receive EC2 network traffic, providing our customers with a solution that extends deep visibility and security monitoring to cloud apps, workloads and databases.”
