Fidelis Security Systems announced a new cloud security solution which provides necessary visibility and control to decrease risks associated with using SaaS. The solution is deployed at the enterprise network edge where traffic between the enterprise and SaaS provider can be monitored.
Visibility is lost when key applications are moved to external providers of services such as email, collaboration tools, CRM and storage. Fidelis is giving that visibility back.
With Fidelis’ cloud security solution that combines Fidelis SSL Inspector and Fidelis XPS Direct sensor, enterprises can ensure that only authorized services and service providers are being used, only authorized information is being transferred to or through these providers and that users aren’t downloading malicious content that might be the basis for an attack on the enterprise network itself. Enterprises can also ensure that their users aren’t the victims of a “man-in-the-middle’ attack when connecting to their SaaS providers.
Fidelis XPS is capable of seeing, studying, and stopping threats in real-time; providing organizations with the network visibility, analysis, and control necessary to manage threats, analyze forensics data, and prevent data breaches.
Fidelis SSL Inspector allows organizations to identify threats hidden within SSL encrypted communications with no impact to existing network configurations and performance and provides organizations with security, content inspection, and threat detection created by SSL. Combined, the Fidelis XPS Cloud Security Solution extends unparalleled visibility and control of increasingly high volumes of traffic between the enterprise and SaaS provider.
“Security and a perceived loss of data control continue to slow cloud adoption across multiple industries that could benefit greatly from the freeing of IT resources and capital,” said Wendy Nather, Research Director Enterprise Security Practice of 451 Research. “Many organizations are fearful that putting data out into the cloud with little to zero visibility will either compromise data integrity or potentially open a portal into their network creating a security risk. Tools such as Fidelis’ Cloud Solution should help to alleviate some of these concerns and expedite cloud adoption in some areas.”
