Infrastructure security firm Threat Stack have partnered with Red Canary to secure enterprise cloud infrastructure. As per the terms of the alliance, Threat Stack and Red Canary will jointly work towards reducing the meantime for security alerts received by cloud-native customers deploying incident response and remediation services.

According to Threat Stack, the increasing number of cyber risks has made it imperative for businesses to safeguard their data and workloads deployed in the cloud. They say that these attacks need to be mitigated with security tools that can respond quickly in a bid to detect and eradicate risks.

By partnering with Red Canary, Threat Stack claim that they will be reducing the meantime for security alerts while facilitating incident response and remediation capabilities. They say that this approach will allow enterprises to concentrate on events requiring instant action by leveraging Red Canary’s cloud risk location prowess.

Speaking about the alliance, Brian Beyer, CEO and Co-Founder at Red Canary explained that Threat Stack’s devoted signalling capabilities will increase their monitoring prowess within the cloud framework. He further stated that this will benefit the clients of both companies and provide the market with a product that responds to threats organically.

Threat Stack believe that the alliance will allow both organizations to boost their Cloud SecOps portfolio and penetrate markets worldwide. Giving an example of entities interested in products of this kind, Threat Stack claim that Ping Identity, an identity defined security provider are keen on adding remediation and response services to their cloud security abilities.

Complementing the above statement, Robb Reck, Chief Information and Security Officer at Ping Identity explained that visibility and response are two components that drive the security of cloud infrastructure. He also added that this alliance will simplify the cloud framework for enterprises that struggled with the overall security of their environments.

It will be interesting to see how Threat Stack leverages this alliance, following their integration with VictorOps for real-time security alerts.
