Description

CloudGuard delivers advanced security intelligence, including cloud intrusion detection, network traffic visualization, and cloud security monitoring and analytics. Its object-mapping algorithms combine cloud inventory and configuration information with real-time data monitoring from a variety of sources from Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud native log, packet capture appliance, and alert tools. The outcome is rich contextualized information, enhanced and simplified visualization, deep event correlation, querying, intrusion alerts and notifications of policy violation, enhancing Security Operation Centers (SOC) with relevant cloud security intelligence for faster and more efficient incident response.
