Cavirin Connect Enables Resellers, System Integrators, and Managed Service Providers to Address Customer’s Critical Security Issues

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -  May 22, 2018 –Cavirin Systems, Inc., the only company providing cybersecurity risk and compliance posture for the enterprise hybrid cloud, today announced the launch of its new Cavirin Connect Partner Program designed to accelerate global growth. The new program empowers resellers, integrators, and MSSPs to offer the Cavirin CyberPosture Intelligence solution to customers worldwide, addressing the ever-increasing cyber-attacks organizations face on a daily basis. The inaugural members of the Cavirin Connect Partner Program include Astadia in the UK, Bodega Technologies, InterVision, Lite Distribution in Australia, Logicworks, Scalar in Canada, Titans Security in Israel, Veristor and others.

“When migrating to the cloud, security and visibility are two key concerns for C-level executives,” said Tom Hance, VP of Worldwide Sales, Cavirin. “Many times, these individuals don’t have access to best-in-class solutions.  With the introduction of our Cavirin Connect Partner Program, we are equipping our partners with the necessary technical and business acumen to enable them to deliver cutting-edge cloud security to their customers.” 

 Cavirin removes security compliance as a barrier to cloud adoption by automating with the broadest set of customizable frameworks, benchmarks, and guidelines available. The company’s solution secures both the public cloud control plane as well as target hybrid cloud workloads (servers), on-premise, within the public cloud, and within containers.  CyberPosture is a consolidated risk score for the hybrid infrastructure, based on configuration checks, vulnerabilities, and risk, security and compliance audit frameworks requirements, permitting the CISO’s team to immediately compare the organization’s current security posture against the desired ‘golden posture’ and immediately take corrective action. 

 The Cavirin Connect Partner Program helps partners up-level their cloud security offerings with a solution that is both easy and cost-effective to deploy.  Key benefits include:

  • A sophisticated partner management platform based on Allbound that enables a 100% deal registration model, insuring the best discount level and assurance that your account is protected
  • Effective and differentiated security services for resellers, system integrators, and managed service providers, further simplifying continuous security and compliance for organizations of all sizes
  • The ability to leverage Cavirin’s RESTful API, allowing partners to easily integrate the Cavirin solution within their existing managed service offerings

Mike Chadwick, CEO of Allbound, said: "I am honored Cavirin selected Allbound to enable the launch of their new channel program. Not only does Cavirin offer an innovative solution for CISOs worldwide, by choosing Allbound, they also demonstrate their commitment to empowering partner success with easy access to high-quality content, seamless deal registration, and collaboration.  Cavirin is a great example to follow on how to launch a modern and powerful channel program; we are excited to innovate with them long into the future."

Scott G. Silk, Chairman and CEO at Astadia in the UK, said: “Security and compliance are a major concern for our customers, especially those in regulated industries, and those with hybrid environments. By partnering with Cavirin, we are excited to be bringing state of the art solutions for OS Hardening, vulnerability scanning, and compliance auditing for GDPR, PCI, SOX, and HIPAA to our customers. In addition, Astadia is building Cavirin’s security automation into our unique DevSecOps solutions to give our clients piece of mind that security is embedded in every piece of code that runs through our pipelines.”

Chris Kirscheke, Owner and Managing Director at Bodega Technologies, said: “At Bodega Tech, we’re excited to partner with Cavirin, as more and more customers are looking to de-risk their move to the public cloud, while still maintaining their existing private data centers. Cavirin helps provide us with the rock-solid security platform needed to complement our Cloud and DevOps solutions, all in one comprehensive platform.”

Paul Clement, Director Automation Services at InterVision, said: “InterVision is very excited about Cavirin’s real-time auditing capabilities. Their technology allows us to identifying compliance issues related to micro-services and the cloud. This has allowed our security engineers to remediate these issues and ensure ongoing compliance after our engagements.” 

Chris Johnston, Director at Lite Distribution in Australia, said: “In the first month of Lite Distribution introducing Cavirin to our partners we have received multiple requests for product information and demonstration. Such is the interest we have major SI partners already scheduled in for online meetings and technical overviews with Cavirin’s US team.”

Sachin Bansal, Head of Strategic Alliances and Channels at Logicworks, said: "For companies in highly-regulated industries, complex compliance requirements can slow down widespread public cloud adoption. Logicworks and Cavirin have independently helped hundreds of companies overcome compliance roadblocks -- and so together, we can offer comprehensive software and services to prepare customers for compliance on the cloud. Logicworks' team of compliance experts and Cavirin's tooling bring clarity and transparency to compliance, helping customers derive business value faster from the cloud.

Simon Wong, Security Specialist at Scalar in Canada, said: “Even if a client isn’t multi-cloud or hybrid cloud today, the value of investing in a security and compliance tool that can scale to include that scenario is clear. I’ve been impressed by the speed with which Cavirin is able to adopt customized compliance reporting requirements from my clients into the service. It is an important part of identifying unintentionally-introduced application vulnerabilities, sometimes a result of continuous integration/deployment practices that haven’t been built with security at the forefront.”

Danny Abramovich, CEO at Titans Security in Israel, said “As one of Cavirin’s early partners, Titans Security in Israel recognized the need for Cavirin’s security and compliance offering for hybrid environments early on. With existing private data centers still in place along with the rapid adoption of AWS as well other public cloud providers in Israel, having the ability to help our customers automate their security and compliance initiatives such as GDPR across their hybrid environments was paramount.”

Bryan Copeland, Security Market Specialist at Veristor, said: "At Veristor we are seeing more customers/prospects morphing into hybrid cloud environments. Along with that movement, more customers/prospects that we talk to are adopting frameworks like NIST or CIS 20. We truly see how Cavirin can bring immediate value providing continuous risk assessments and framework benchmarking along with a remediation plan to make gains on risk posture."

Study finds organizations are concerned with visibility and the ability to manage risk and security with hybrid cloud accounts and workloads

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -  April 10, 2018 –Cavirin Systems, Inc., the only company providing cybersecurity risk posture and compliance for the enterprise hybrid cloud today announced the availability of Cavirin Hybrid Cloud CyberPosture Intelligence. CyberPosture intelligence is the ability to deliver risk, cybersecurity and compliance management by providing visibility and actionable intelligence to the CISO and other stakeholders across hybrid environments.  The Cavirin platform delivers this through real-time visibility, predictive analytics, and intelligent remediation through DevSecOps integrations.

In a new study of 250 hybrid cloud security leaders, “Cyber Security Posture: The Challenges and Strategies of Hybrid Cloud”, the two top concerns identified were verification that public cloud accounts are secure (69%) and confirmation that workloads in the cloud are secure as well (69%).  This lends credence to the reality that both account and workload security are critical.

However, security is still a key issue and barrier to adopting a hybrid cloud architecture, with specific concerns including increased complexity (55%), a lack of visibility into cloud endpoints (32%), difficulty instituting security controls (37%), and a clear need for more assessment tools (29%).  Additional noteworthy findings are listed below.

“Though our research shows that over 81% of enterprises are adopting a hybrid cloud approach, only 30% are using unified security tools that span on-premise and the cloud,” stated Doug Cahill, ESG’s lead cybersecurity and cloud analyst, quoting related research by ESG on hybrid cloud security.  “The fact that this will grow to 70% over the next two years speaks well of Cavirin’s hybrid cloud approach, helping address a key barrier to hybrid cloud adoption – security and visibility.”

Traditional solutions provide siloed, delayed visibility, and require manual security remediation and testing which is not well suited for the flexibility and velocity that the hybrid cloud model offers. Cavirin’s CyberPosture Intelligence for the Hybrid Cloud eliminates these limitations and removes the barrier to the cloud with:

  • Continuous Risk & Cybersecurity Posture Management - A central ‘CISO Dashboard’ depicts exactly what organizations have at each moment and where they are located. This includes cloud account security posture, as well as virtual machines and container instances.
  • Integrating Security into DevOps - Bridges the gap between DevOps and SecOps by automatically injecting security into the DevOps cycle – development, staging, and deployment -  through CI/CD integration. 
  • Continuous Compliance Management - Removes security compliance as a barrier to cloud adoption through automation and customization via the broadest set of customizable frameworks, benchmarks and guidelines.

 Supporting Customer Quotes:

“We choose Cavirin because it is the only product in the industry that can effectively inspect and report on non-compliance issues against a wide range of security frameworks and regulatory standards in both cloud workloads and AWS security,” said Kin Kwan, Security Officer, Telus Health. 

“Our deployments across AWS and GCP are a good match for the hybrid cloud capabilities of the Cavirin platform,” said Peter Bierfeldt, Chief Information Security Officer, Reltio. “Their support for frameworks and regulations including ISO and SOC2 will help us maintain continuous compliance across our cloud deployments.”

“Cavirin’s support for Azure will permit us to address both aspects of cloud security – the security posture of the cloud itself, as well as the individual workloads,” said Ray Espinoza, VP and Chief Information Security Officer, Atmosera. “Their vision of a CISO dashboard extending across the hybrid infrastructure is where we see the market going, and will help us deliver a more comprehensive and competitive service.”

“Given the sensitive nature of HLI’s data, we deploy the Cavirin platform as it helps ensure continuous compliance with government regulations,” said Ernesto Ruy Sanchez. DevOps Manager, Human Longevity, Inc.

 “Cavirin’s ability for real-time visibility across the infrastructure permits organizations to accurately assess risk, security posture, then automatically remediate,” said Jack Kudale, COO, Cavirin. “This is the first platform available for organizations to easily migrate and achieve continuous security and compliance of their hybrid cloud deployments, knowing they are safe and secure.”

New Technical Capabilities include:

  • “Golden Posture” and ‘Top 25’ recommendations for guided remediation.
  • Container runtime monitoring delivering on Cavirin’s ‘full-stack’ container security that already includes image scanning, CIS container and Kubernetes hardening, and guest OS hardening.
  • Custom policy creation and compensating controls based on a Cavirin Domain Specific Language
  • Availability of the new, Cavirin-authored CIS Azure Foundation Benchmark.

 Some additional noteworthy survey findings include:

  • 62% use separate tools to secure their on-premise and cloud environments, and less than half of respondents currently use a security solution spanning on-premise and cloud. A concerning finding was that 40% of respondents only use the tools provided by the cloud provider, which are considered by most to be incomplete.
  • 50% have deployed on Azure as part of a hybrid cloud strategy, demonstrating the strong momentum it’s experiencing as an equal to AWS in services offered, as well as traction within Microsoft’s account base.
  • When asked about the security technology they currently use, the survey found strong uptake of Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (48%), Cloud Access Security Brokers (37%), and Security Information and Event Management (39%).
  • 39% of respondents cited that DevOps and development teams care greatly about their cybersecurity posture, showing that the silo between security/IT and development teams is diminishing.

The full Cavirin survey results along with an infographic summarizing ESG’s observations are available here.

Cavirin is offering demonstrations of its hybrid cloud security capabilities as well as a preview of its new user experience at RSA 2018, April 16-20, Booth # N4439.
