Radware Extends Cloud Workload Protection Service for Risk-Based Threat Visibility, Compliance, and Attack Detection

Mahwah, New Jersey, UNITED STATES

MAHWAH, N.J., June 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, has enhanced its Cloud Workload Protection Service (CWP) to give enterprises a full-suite of visibility, compliance, and reporting features, coupled with enhancements to its industry-leading attack detection engine.

Radware has extended its comprehensive compliance engine to support multi cloud environments. The engine compares the organization’s cloud security posture against multiple industry compliance standards, including: PCI DSS, HIPAA, NIST CSF, SOC2, CIS AWS/Azure Foundation Benchmark.

The service includes a new security posture dashboard that provides comprehensive visibility into both the overall cloud risks associated with workloads hosted on both AWS and Azure and the organization’s cloud security posture. This dashboard provides a detailed and comprehensive view of security risks across multiple accounts, regions, and public cloud vendors. 

Radware has enriched its existing, industry-leading attack detection engine to detect cloud native attack vectors and added a new attack simulation tool. The attack simulation tool allows organizations to proactively test their public cloud environments, harden security posture and improve their security teams’ readiness using simulated attacks based on real-life cloud data breach events.  

The result is a comprehensive, end-to-end CSPM solution for identifying security risks, unintended public exposure, excessive permissions, and compliance breaches as well as detecting breach attempts and automatically remediating threats.

“As companies increasingly turn to public cloud environments, they need unprecedented visibility into their environment that is based on real risk analysis,” said David Aviv, Chief Technology Officer for Radware. “Too often, organizations use tools that struggle to distinguish between suspicious activity performed by legitimate entities and malicious activity conducted by threat actors. Radware’s Cloud Workload Protection Service helps organizations identify both scenarios by providing meaningful threat intelligence and advanced analytics with an unmatched ability to identify attack-kill-chain. Our CWP service empowers customers to take fast, accurate action to block attacks and shore up vulnerabilities in their cloud environments before it’s too late.”

Companies have relied on Radware’s Cloud Workload Protection Service for comprehensive visibility into complex environments. One example is ad-tech innovator Perion, whose employees managed multiple AWS instances. AWS provided only limited visibility into the multiple workloads and assets spread across numerous environments. Perion’s operations did not have a window into dangerous misconfigurations, such as network configurations of assets exposed to the internet.

“The Radware Cloud Workload Protection Service provided a single solution with enhanced visibility, immediately identifying dangerous misconfigurations,” said Amir Arama, Vice President of Operations at Perion. “By combining those capabilities to CWP’s continuous attack detection capabilities and compliance tools, Radware is continuing to add value to a product that already offered immense value.”

“We recently conducted a trial run with a cybersecurity startup that was quickly growing its customer base after receiving a large investment from a venture capital firm,” said Nissim Pariente, Vice President of Security Analytics. “During the proof-of-concept period, we discovered that many of the identified public exposures were actually false positives, often reported by the company’s partners. Additionally, we discovered that nearly every employee in the organization’s cloud environment had admin privileges. With CWP, this company was able to optimize permissions to the right level of access, with a level of granularity and control that was much appreciated by executives.”

Radware’s CWP has also helped companies monitor workloads and maintain productivity, as their workforce transitioned to remote and work-from-home arrangements. Radware worked closely with one particular client to monitor remote worker engagement and optimize permissions that align with the principle of least privilege.
