Continuous Compliance

Automate compliance assessments and produce audit-ready reports without diverting resources from other projects.

Audit-ready Reports

Continuously monitor compliance with custom or out-of-the box templates and audit-ready reports for standards such as CIS, SOC2, HIPAA, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS.

Reduce Audit Costs

Cloud Optix allows you to define which inventory items within your cloud account are subject to certain compliance standards, reducing the hours associated with your audit.

Works With Existing Tools

Save weeks of effort by mapping the Control ID from your existing overarching compliance tools such as RSA Archer or MetricStream to Cloud Optix.

Automatically scan Infrastructure-as-Code templates merged to source control management, with pipeline deployment based on Cloud Optix security and compliance assessment results.

Drift Detection & Guardrails

Continuously monitor and detect drift in configuration standards, and prevent, detect, and automatically remediate accidental or malicious changes in resource configuration.

Monitor Unlimited Environments

Simple licensing allows you to monitor public cloud assets across an unlimited number of Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts, Microsoft Azure subscriptions, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) projects, and Kubernetes clusters.

Providing Response Where Others Generate Alerts

Shrink incident response times to prevent cloud cyberattacks and compliance penalties.

  • Act Quickly and Confidently
    AI-powered security analytics and monitoring applies root cause analysis, risk-based prioritization, and remediation support to security and compliance alerts.
  • Multi-cloud Analysis from One Console
    Aggregate and prioritize security and compliance alerts from multiple cloud providers in a single console to avoid alert fatigue, and build a complete picture of security posture.
  • Integrated Alert Management
    Monitor your way with Cloud Optix Rest API and integrations with Splunk, PagerDuty, Jira, Slack, ServiceNow, Amazon SNS, and Amazon GuardDuty to provide real-time alert information where you need it.

Stop Unauthorized Access

It takes as little as 52 seconds for an attacker to identify public cloud workloads as a target. Cloud Optix AI-powered monitoring instantly identifies suspicious console login events, API calls and assumed-role API calls that suggest shared or stolen user credentials are being used by an attacker remotely.

Avoid Data Loss

Visualize infrastructure instantly and identify misconfigurations and possible data breach points.

Providing visibility into complex application stacks, Cloud Optix network topology visualization makes it simple to detect suspicious traffic patterns, reveal high value workloads, and uncover hidden data breach points.
