Security for cloud environments including AWS, Azure and Google.

Only 56 percent of security alerts are investigated, and more than half of those are not remediated, according to the Cisco 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report. Responding to these alerts is an overwhelming job, and most SMB organizations do not have the security staff to keep up. Companies of all sizes face the challenge of securing their public cloud environments as well as their on-premises infrastructure. Adding effective security measures for public cloud workloads—with solutions that can reduce the number of false positives—is a critical task. However, the public cloud infrastructure differs from an on-premises infrastructure. A public cloud offers fewer network monitoring capabilities even as it undergoes a very high change rate in assets. To provide effective security while reducing the number of false positives, a new approach is necessary. Cisco Stealthwatch and Lacework can help.

Cisco Stealthwatch

Monitor   I   Detect   I   Analyze   I   Respond

Cisco® Stealthwatch Cloud provides the actionable security intelligence and visibility necessary to identify these kinds of malicious activities in real time. You can quickly respond before a security incident becomes a devastating breach. With Stealthwatch Cloud, you can detect external and internal threats across your environment, from the private network to the branch office to the public cloud. Stealthwatch Cloud is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution delivered from the cloud. It is easy to try, easy to buy, and simple to operate and maintain. When data is received, it requires very little additional configuration or device classification. All the analysis is automated.


Deep visibility across the network perimeter, interior, data center, and private and public clouds, and down to the endpoint


A simplified understanding of normal network behavior, with NetFlow establishing a baseline for pinpointing anomalous behavior


Continuous monitoring of devices, applications, and users throughout distributed networks


Advanced security analytics and intelligence to detect a wide range of behaviors that could signify an attack

Incident Response

Acceleration of incident response times with real-time threat detection

Superior forensic investigations with comprehensive network audit trails

For businesses seeking the shortest time to market, security is still too slow. DevOps already benefits from automated tools to release new code to production. It is time for cloud security teams to embrace automation and adopt new approaches explicitly designed for the cloud.

The Lacework Cloud Security Platform addresses the unique demands of the cloud: speed, scale and automation. Polygraph, our platform’s technology backbone, combines active cloud resource monitoring, advanced analytics and smart visualization. Security teams can minimize security risks, detect threats and close compliance gaps without slowing down the pace of innovation.
