DENVER, Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Security leader ProtectWise today announced enhancements to The ProtectWise Grid, its platform which provides automated network detection and response across Enterprise, Cloud and Industrial Environments. Aimed at organizations running workloads in multiple Amazon Web Services (AWS) instances, new integrations between The ProtectWise Grid and AWS, via the DescribeInstances and CreateTags actions of the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) API, allow security teams to quickly locate, investigate and respond to threats.
The ProtectWise Grid provides context fusion through a blend of threat intelligence that allows security teams to identify instances with anomalous activity and tag them for further action. In addition to giving organizations greater visibility into their AWS deployments, the integrations also facilitate efficient communication and coordination between security and developer operation teams that manage networks on AWS.
ProtectWise is an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and was one of the first companies to achieve AWS Networking Competency status. The ProtectWise Grid is also available on AWS Marketplace.
"As more global 2,000 enterprise organizations transform their businesses on the cloud, we are seeing important infrastructure, including customized applications and IT services, shifting to AWS," said Ramon Peypoch, ProtectWise Chief Product Officer. "ProtectWise is committed to providing pervasive visibility, automated network detection and forensic exploration for organizations with workloads on AWS, and these integrations are an extension of that commitment."
ProtectWise provides automated threat detection and response across time for any network. Delivering security entirely from the cloud, The ProtectWise Grid captures full-fidelity network traffic from enterprise, cloud and industrial environments, to create a lasting network memory. The security platform provides real time and retrospective alerting and analysis in a rich, innovative visualizer. By harnessing the cloud, The ProtectWise Grid delivers unique advantages over current network security products, including the industry's only automated retrospection and the ease and cost-savings of an on-demand deployment model.
Founded in April 2013, ProtectWise is based in Denver and led by a team of security and SaaS industry veterans from McAfee, Palo Alto Networks, and Symantec. The company launched the Immersive Security movement in 2017 to build a new path forward for the security industry. ProtectWise has raised more than $70 million in funding.
