Valtix for Microsegmentation
FOR PUBLIC CLOUD WORKLOADS
Valtix microsegmentation delivers comprehensive capability to define granular policies to enable least privilege access between (east-west) and to/from their workloads (north-south) in AWS, Azure, GCP, and OCI. Requiring zero agents to install or virtual appliances to manage, Valtix enables automated segmentation across every path of connectivity and for each cloud using dynamic policy and cloud-native workload identity to block lateral movement.
Zero Agents To Manage
No agents to deploy means less troubleshooting and fewer outages
5 Minutes To Deploy
Quickly connect to each cloud account, discover workloads, and enable security
30 Seconds To Adapt
Adapts dynamically to new apps and changes to existing apps
OPEN CLOUDS MAKE MICROSEGMENTATION A MUST
With the public cloud, connectivity between workloads is relatively open. Unfortunately, the cloud service providers give you little control over those connectivity paths, which leaves the door wide open for attackers. Add in open paths to the public internet and the risk of a breach as a result of this control gap is significant.
To close this gap, many organizations will try to bring the same agent-based microsegmentation point solutions they use on the endpoint or in the datacenter to the cloud. Unfortunately, this approach often introduces new challenges because of the dynamic nature of public cloud. It also fragments cloud security policy by adding additional tools to operate in the cloud, which results in reduced agility and incomplete security.
Unfortunately, a cloud-native and multi-cloud solution for microsegmentation didn’t exist.
Here are the cloud microsegmentation challenges we hear from customers.
Sound familiar? Valtix can help.
Microsegmentation agents cause additional complexity and are difficult to operationalize in the cloud
Virtual Appliance NGFWs do not scale easily and are very difficult to deploy inside VPCs/VNets, thus making east-west traffic inspection cost prohibitive
Lack of context dictates traditional IP / port / subnet based security policies that are too broad to implement zero trust and microsegmentation.
CLOUD-NATIVE, MULTICLOUD MICROSEGMENTATION SOLUTION
Valtix gives you a visibility and control plane that was built for the security of cloud workloads including comprehensive network segmentation. Policy can be easily defined for east-west or app-to-app communications. Unlike segmentation point solutions, Valtix microsegmentation in AWS, Azure, GCP, and OCI provides comprehensive security and the ability to block attacks that come from the internet or data exfiltration attempts.
Reduce Time to Secure
Maintain business agility while addressing critical requirements
Eliminate Fragmented Solutions
Gain a single dynamic policy for segmentation and other security policies
Respond Faster to Incidents
Accelerate incident response from detection to quarantine or isolation
Unified Dynamic Policy
Over 60% of organizations are multi-cloud today, with the vast majority who are not becoming multi-cloud within 2 years. Security is a top issue when making the move to multi-cloud. For those who are single cloud, multi-account security can be just as challenging.
With Valtix, teams gain a single policy framework for segmentation, workload protection, and other security use cases that works across multiple clouds and multiple accounts. Valtix removes the need for 5+ point solutions in favor of a consolidated approach.
In the cloud, east-west segmentation is just one part of the equation. To gain a more comprehensive policy for cloud workloads, one needs to consider north-south traffic as well.
With Valtix microsegmentation for AWS, GCP, Azure, and OCI helps achieve both east-west and north-south segmentation to limit access from the internet to the workload, workload to workload, and workload to service.
PaaS Application Identities
More and more applications are built cloud-first to leverage cloud platform services for logging, database, and other use cases. For security teams using datacenter tools, these services can often be a blindspot.
With Valtix, cloud security teams gain visibility and segmentation for traditional application IDs in addition to 100s of cloud services (PaaS).
Tag-based Workload Identity
Security requires context. Workloads in production often require different policy than those in dev and test. Workloads involving regulations have different security needs than those with less critical data.
With Valtix, teams can automate segmentation policy based on business context from cloud-native tags. Leverage one model of tagging across multiple security and non-security (billing, asset management) use cases.
The cloud is inherently more open. Configuration or identity exposures can lead to an attacker having the ability to quickly move laterally to inflict damage or to steal valuable data.
With Valtix microsegmentation, visualize workload connectivity to understand dependencies, attack surface, and investigate security issues. Unlike posture management tools, security teams can quickly go from understanding exposure to deploying a security policy to mitigate exposures.
