This is encouraging – especially for IT leaders who have been grappling with pressures to leverage cloud to drive digital initiatives on the one hand and protecting business data and apps from ever increasing security threats on the other. But, alignment on security being a priority is one thing – having the tools in place to actually be able to pull this off is another. In our latest Enterprise Cloud Services release, we’ve taken another step to providing those tools that IT needs to marry together the sometimes opposing forces of cloud agility and security.
We’ve added security alerting capabilities to our advanced security offering. Individual users can set alerts for different security settings to receive notifications in our cloud console if a security scan detects a vulnerability in their environment. These alerts can be customized for different risk factors; e.g. an alert notification can be set to trigger if the risk factor is greater than ‘Medium’.
The real-time alerts include recommended remediation, thus enabling IT teams to respond to security threats with unprecedented speed. Relevant information can also easily be shared with auditors and senior management. Customers can set alerts for:
- Computer issues (ex. reboots and clock changes)
- Firewall rules
- Integrity Monitoring rules
- Intrusion prevention and detection rules
- Log inspection rules
- Web reputation rules
- iland platform updates
