Aviatrix ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard Debuts
February 10, 2022
touted new security features for ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard. With its new
capabilities, Aviatrix ThreatIQ now provides continuous Network Behavior
Analytics, built into the cloud network fabric. Fingerprinting workload and
traffic characteristics to form a baseline, the analytics are customized for
every environment, improve over time, and are complementary to signature-based
ThreatIQ with ThreatGuardtm embeds security across the Aviatrix multi-cloud data
plane and enables every network node to provide security inspection and
enforcement. Distributed threat visibility and control built natively into the
network data plane identifies traffic to malicious destinations and safely
enables policy-based automated remediation.
"The priority for PACCAR's cloud infrastructure team is to quickly respond to
the dynamic needs of our business and our customers, supporting an evolving
supply chain landscape while also delivering new global connected services to
customers," said Dallas Thornton, Director, Digital Services at PACCAR.
"Aviatrix is a critical part of our architecture that enables us to deliver new
business capabilities while layering in enhanced security natively into our
multi-cloud networking infrastructure."
Securing the Cloud at the Network Layer – It's time to take a cloud-centric
approach to security.
"Security challenges continue to evolve in the cloud, with increasingly porous
exposure, and no single perimeter," said Bryan Ashley, Vice President of Product
Marketing at Aviatrix. "Our customers are looking for multi-cloud native
capabilities like Network Behavior Analytics to help secure their
business-critical infrastructure and enhance their cloud security posture."
Traditional Solutions Alone Leave Gaps
Signature-based traditional solutions are not cloud-aware, featuring only a
single point of inspection, and function with a legacy operational model.
This leaves the enterprise vulnerable to unacceptable business risks, including
data loss, exfiltration, and resource hijacking, resulting in potentially
devastating financial impact, not to mention loss of customer trust and
significantly reduced agility.
"Enterprises and government organizations alike are aware of how public cloud
introduces entirely new risk vectors, however they continue to struggle with
developing and operating an architecture to properly address this exposure,"
said Yves Vazquez, Sr. Manager at Accenture Federal Services. "Aviatrix is
focused on supporting our mutual government customers as they seek to enhance
secure cloud networking architectures."
Network Behavior Analytics – Business Value
With the Network Behavior Analytics included in ThreatIQ, Aviatrix customers
benefit from an enhanced security posture, resulting in reduced security risk.
Security is built directly into your cloud network, as opposed to a 'bolt-on'
afterthought, while the proactive approach reduces the time to identify unknown
Reducing Infrastructure Cost for Distributed Inspection and Control
According to IBM 2021 Cost of Data Breach Report, "The average total cost of a
data breach increased by nearly 10% year over year to $4.24 million), the
largest single year cost increase in the last seven years….Costs were 80% lower
for organizations with a more mature security posture leveraging AI and
automation (for security anomaly detection)."
By reducing the time and cost to identify and contain a breach, the Network
Behavior Analytics in ThreatIQ reduce infrastructure costs while complementing
existing security investments.
More about ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard
By inspecting traffic in real-time as it crosses the network, ThreatIQ with
ThreatGuard provides deeper visibility into activities potentially missed by
traditional network security approaches such as NGFW and other legacy solutions.
Embedded into the Aviatrix multi-cloud data plane, these capabilities enable
every network node to provide traffic inspection and enforcement, while
policy-based automated remediation of identified threats eliminates delays with
manual administrative action and review.
Aviatrix Secure Cloud Networking
secure cloud networking is software-deployed and operated by enterprise
customers. The software directly programs the native cloud constructs to
maintain the simplicity and automation unique to each cloud provider. Aviatrix
adds advanced networking, security, automation, and day-two operational
visibility for enterprises using one or more public clouds. With today's cloud
transformation, enterprises are designing their cloud networks based on the
Multi-Cloud Network Architecture (MCNA), the reference architecture for
enterprises to design, deploy and operate a repeatable network and security
architecture that is consistent across any public cloud.
Pricing and Availability
ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard is available immediately from Aviatrix, authorized
partners and public cloud marketplaces.
