Fidelis Cybersecurity now supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud traffic mirroring
Fidelis Cybersecurity, a leading provider of threat detection, threat hunting, and response solutions, announced support for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) traffic mirroring that allows customers to continuously monitor network traffic for threats and data loss directly through Fidelis Network sensors in the cloud.
Applications and workloads are continuing to migrate to the cloud but network security visibility for cloud-based applications has not occurred at the same pace. This expanded attack surface gives attackers more weaknesses to exploit, making cloud network traffic analysis critical for threat detection and hunting, as well as for detecting data loss.
Previously, this required the use of agents or other third-party solutions as there was not a reliable native high-speed mirroring capability available from the underlying fabric.
Fidelis Network, a component of the Fidelis Elevate platform now fully supports Amazon VPC traffic mirroring and allows Fidelis customers to more quickly deploy cloud network traffic analysis for north-south and east-west communications of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances.
The solution also provides a monitoring boundary between VNETs for Fidelis Network sensors deployed in Amazon VPCs and customer applications and workloads.
“The Amazon VPC traffic mirroring capability makes it easy to quickly deploy Fidelis’ network traffic analysis for north-south and east-west communications of Amazon EC2 instances,” said Tim Roddy, Vice President, Product Management, Fidelis Cybersecurity.
“We’ve worked closely with AWS on support-testing and being fully approved to have Fidelis Network sensors receive Amazon EC2 network traffic, providing our customers with a solution that extends deep visibility and security monitoring to cloud apps, workloads, and databases.”
Customers can also increase their cloud security by adding the Fidelis Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and Fidelis Deception components of Fidelis Elevate. Unifying these components provides customers with an automated threat detection, hunting and response platform which can be managed inhouse or by Fidelis’ Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service.
