Aviatrix Enhances Secure Cloud Networking with Behavior Analytics

Aviatrix, a pioneer of secure cloud networking, has announced new security features for ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard. With these capabilities, Aviatrix ThreatIQ provides continuous Network Behavior Analytics, built into the cloud network fabric.

Fingerprinting workload and traffic characteristics to form a baseline, the analytics are customized for every environment, improve over time and are complementary to signature-based threat defenses.

ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard embeds security across the Aviatrix multi-cloud data plane and enables every network node to provide security inspection and enforcement. Distributed threat visibility and control built natively into the network data plane identifies traffic to malicious destinations and safely enables policy-based automated remediation.

“Security challenges continue to evolve in the cloud, with increasingly porous exposure, and no single perimeter,” said Bryan Ashley, vice president of product marketing at Aviatrix. “Our customers are looking for multi-cloud native capabilities like Network Behavior Analytics to help secure their business-critical infrastructure and enhance their cloud security posture.”

Signature-based traditional solutions are not cloud-aware, featuring only a single point of inspection, and function with a legacy operational model. This leaves the enterprise vulnerable to unacceptable business risks, including data loss, exfiltration and resource hijacking, resulting in potentially devastating financial impact, not to mention loss of customer trust and significantly reduced agility.

With the analytics included in ThreatIQ, Aviatrix customers benefit from an enhanced security posture, resulting in reduced security risk. Security is built directly into your cloud network, as opposed to a ‘bolt-on’ afterthought, while the proactive approach reduces the time to identify unknown threats.

By reducing the time and cost to identify and contain a breach, the Network Behavior Analytics in ThreatIQ reduce infrastructure costs while complementing existing security investments.

By inspecting traffic in real-time as it crosses the network, ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard provides deeper visibility into activities potentially missed by traditional network security approaches such as NGFW and other legacy solutions. Embedded into the Aviatrix multi-cloud data plane, these capabilities enable every network node to provide traffic inspection and enforcement, while policy-based automated remediation of identified threats eliminates delays with manual administrative action and review. Aviatrix secure cloud networking is software-deployed and operated by enterprise customers. The software directly programs the native cloud constructs to maintain the simplicity and automation unique to each cloud provider. Aviatrix adds advanced networking, security, automation, and day-two operational visibility for enterprises using one or more public clouds.

With today’s cloud transformation, enterprises are designing their cloud networks based on the Multi-Cloud Network Architecture (MCNA), the reference architecture for enterprises to design, deploy and operate a repeatable network and security architecture that is consistent across any public cloud.

ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard is available from Aviatrix, authorized partners and public cloud marketplaces. Learn more at Aviatrix.com.
