Virtualising ones network using third party cloud platform vendors was already seeing huge uptake before the pandemic struck. 2020 pressed home transformation that had been in the wash but not prioritised.
Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) are central to cloud security strategy, sitting between cloud users and cloud applications to monitor activity, enforce security policy and enable organisations to enjoy the agility and performance of the cloud at significantly reduced risk.
N.B. Whilst cloud vendors are responsible for the security of the cloud, users remain responsible for security of data they place in the cloud.
CloudGuard Native provides network security policy management and automation for cloud environments across providers, regions and accounts.
CloudGuard ensures organisation’s network security is defined and understood then enforces that security policy on a continuous basis. In the event of an unauthorised change (an attempt to open a network port), CloudGuard will prevent this and enforces the configuration that was previously defined.
Dome9 were purchased by fellow Israel cybersecurity vendor, Check Point at the end of 2018 hence the name of CloudGuard Native moving forward.
