Endpoint and network security firm Sophos has now launched its Sophos Cloud Optix SaaS offering on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

Sophos Cloud Optic is an agentless SaaS solution that automatically discovers cloud assets, detects cloud security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, and it also provides threat response for customers on AWS.

According to Sophos research, cybercriminals are relentlessly deploying cloud server attacks. The attackers use automation to scan for vulnerabilities such as open cloud buckets, and they can also launch attack within minutes of assets appearing on the cloud, according to Sophos chief product officer Dan Schiappa.

“Organisations are at risk of a security breach if they can’t see and properly secure what they’re putting into the cloud. Cloud Optix continuously monitors cloud assets, configurations and network traffic patterns to prevent provisioning of vulnerable infrastructure,” he adds.

More than 200,000 active AWS Marketplace customers can now access and set up Cloud Optix on a per-host, per-hour basis for flexible scaling, with no minimum term contract.

“Automatically discovering cloud assets in minutes, Cloud Optix provides a full topology view of cloud infrastructure, leverages artificial intelligence to highlight and mitigate threat exposure, and integrates with native AWS APIs,” the company states.

“It provides teams with a single view of security posture across multiple cloud environments, including AWS, and enables organizations to accurately visualise and secure cloud infrastructure continuously, and confidently.”

Earlier this year, Sophos was named as AWS Partner Network (APN) Technology Partner of the Year in UK & Ireland at the annual AWS Partner Summits.

The awards recognise partners who are leaders in the channel and play key roles in helping customers drive innovation and build solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Cloud Optix is now available on AWS Marketplace. Partners can also leverage Cloud Optix on AWS Marketplace through the AWS Consulting Partner Private Offers program.

Sophos recently launched a fully managed threat hunting, detection and response service called Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR). The re-sellable service provides organisations with a dedicated 24/7 security team to neutralise the most sophisticated and complex threats.

Built on Intercept X Advanced with endpoint detection and response (EDR), Sophos MTR fuses machine learning with expert analysis for improved threat hunting and detection, deeper investigation of alerts, and targeted actions to eliminate threats. These innovative capabilities are based on Sophos’ acquisitions of Rook Security and DarkBytes technology.
