Cybersecurity company Caveonix have announced the availability of their cyber-risk and compliance platform RiskForesight for hybrid cloud deployers. By bringing this security capability to hybrid cloud environments, Caveonix aim to simplify the process of managing cyber-risks for organizations in a bid to help them protect mission-critical workloads.
According to Caveonix, measuring the risks of applications deployed in hybrid cloud environments is critical to its performance. They say that enterprises need to monitor these applications so that they can get actionable insights that enhance overall performance.
By adding RiskForesight to hybrid cloud environments, Caveonix believe that organizations can track risk over the time and adjust policies to take actions based on the latest data threats and compliance requirements. They also claim that Caveonix has a normalized policy abstraction layer to make it easy for organizations to have a consistent policy for risks across different cloud deployments.
Speaking about this move, Kaus Phaltankar, Co-founder, President and Chief Technology Officer at Caveonix, commented:
The focus for the company is providing a proactive, risk-based defense for hybrid cloud environments. As the name of our product RiskForesight implies, it provides foresight into enterprise cyber-risk.
Each application represents an intent, and that’s what we capture, whether from a customer definition or via machine learning for a baseline of what is normal activity. We objectify the intent into implementation code, maintaining a consistent policy for the intent across the different cloud platforms.
Caveonix claim that RiskForesight has an API-based integration for hybrid cloud workloads. This integration, Caveonix claim has been also made with Vmware’s popular hybrid cloud technologies, namely vRealize automation, vCenter and NSX.
