This is the latest integration into Masergy’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR) platform to mitigate risk, offload incident monitoring and improve security outcomes. It automates best practices and accelerates enterprise migration to cloud computing while also supporting legacy on-premise servers and data centers and protects against sophisticated attackers and security misconfigurations with extensive security controls and audit capabilities, Masergy said.
“Migration to IaaS/PaaS environments offer tremendous business benefits, but as we’ve seen with recent high-profile cloud breaches, a single misconfiguration or missing control can be detrimental,” said Jay Barbour, director of security product management, Masergy. “Our managed solution delivers best practices for tracking vulnerabilities and ensuring proper configuration. With 24/7 monitoring from our global team of certified security experts, we provide real-time alerting and incident response.”
According to Gartner’s How to Make Cloud IaaS Workloads More Secure Than Your Own Data Center G00300337, “95% of cloud security failures will be the [IaaS] customer’s fault.” In addition, “adopting the best practices outlined in this research will require changes to security culture, mindsets and processes, thus slowing adoption.”
Masergy addresses Gartner’s recommendations by extending patented security analytics capabilities and mature processes to cloud computing environments in partnership with CloudPassage, thus providing scalable coverage for servers, virtual machines, cloud operating systems and containers.
