Cavirin debuts at AWS Re: Invent 2014

Cavirin is here at the Amazon Web Services Re: Invent conference at the Venetian, and it’s practically vibrating with activity. It’s amazing how this space has exploded over the last couple of years. We’re excited to be part of it.

Our big news is that we released Cavirin for AWS today in the Amazon Marketplace, and we could not be prouder.

Although the market is overflowing with new companies selling malware scanners, cloud-security software, and encryption products, we still hear about massive data breaches almost daily. There’s a reason for this. A large number of these breaches are actually caused by misconfiguration issues, which are easy to overlook when you’re adding new cloud  instances or moving infrastructure around. The fact is that you can make sure your disks are encrypted and scan for malware until the cows come home…but until you get a handle on the configuration problem, you’ll still have a giant security gap.

Cavirin addresses this issue by letting you capture your approved configurations as policies. Then it continuously scans for and notes violations to these policies, generating an easy-to-read compliance “report card” that helps you communicate your security posture to management, investors, customers, prospects, and other constituents.

We built Cavirin to be as non-intrusive as possible. Unlike other products on the market, it is agentless, so it’s lightweight and has negligible performance impact.  And of course, it was purpose-built for dynamic cloud-based environments, as opposed to datacenter products that have been patched to accommodate the cloud as an afterthought.

In this “brave new world” of the cloud, your reputation and your business depends on your ability to maintain security—and to prove it. Cavirin for AWS lets you do just that.

If you’re here at the conference, please stop by the Cavirin kiosk (K1) and say hello. We’d love to show off our new product to you.
