RedLock announced enhancements to the RedLock Cloud 360 platform that delivers interoperability and insights with Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
The features in RedLock Cloud 360 offer integration with GCP Flow Logs, support for GCP Orgs, compliance packs, and backing for other Google Cloud services such as Kubernetes.
The package offers a range of capabilities and support to organizations leveraging the public cloud for their computing and applications requirements.
“The cloud computing model lives up to its undeniable potential when concerns around security and compliance are no longer obstacles, and it’s always been our mission at RedLock to help achieve that goal,” said Ankur Shah, VP of Products at RedLock.
“That’s why we’ve delivered recent benefits such as enhanced integration as a launch partner for Google Cloud Security Command Center (Cloud SCC). Now, we’re proud to offer even more advanced integration with GCP, including greater visibility into network traffic, enhanced support for key features and additional backing for industry-specific regulations. We also pledge to continue developing products and services that further ease and secure operations in the cloud.”
New features include the following:
Integration with GCP Flow Logs: RedLock provides visibility into network traffic, which comes through network visualization, enabling identification of network security threats such as access to sensitive workloads from malicious IPs; data exfiltration; crypto mining; and host compromise. It’s also now easier to identify and remediate network security risks by creating custom policies/rules, and integrating with enterprise security automation tools.
Support for GCP Orgs: This capability provides central visibility and control over every resource that belongs to an organization. GCP provides resource containers—such as Organizations, Folders and Projects—that allow customers to group and hierarchically organize other Cloud Platform resources. This makes it easier to manage common aspects of internal resources such as access control and configuration settings. With RedLock’s support for GCP Orgs, customers can onboard projects and resources within minutes, and gain centralized governance across their GCP environment.
Improved support for HIPAA, PCI and GDPR compliance: HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which covers healthcare industry), PCI (for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which encompasses credit card usage in industries such as retail), and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, which protects EU citizens’ online activities) represent compliance mandates. The new feature eases cloud adoption by offering compliance both at the infrastructure and application layers through the shared responsibility model.
Support for Additional Google Services for Security/Compliance: Additional configuration and compliance monitoring for services such as Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and BigQuery are now available in RedLock Cloud 360. In addition to visibility, it accelerates the adoption of these Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) models by providing continuous security governance and monitoring.
“Just as we advocate shared responsibility for security in cloud environments, we also need shared innovation, and that’s why we’re excited to see the latest advances from RedLock,” said Vineet Bhan, Head of Security Partnerships, Google Cloud.
“RedLock has long been committed to supporting Google Cloud Platform, and we look forward to continued collaboration with the company.”
