This is going to be a busy week for ProtectWise. We announced support for the ProtectWise Sensor software on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and also an integration with the new Gigamon Visibility Platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS). These are important advances because, as you probably know, it is very challenging for security teams to track down attacks in the cloud. Even if you ignore the fact that it isn’t feasible to install traditional appliance-based security solutions in an IaaS provider’s data center, there are other reasons why filling this visibility gap is difficult. For example,

  • Cloud instances are constantly in flux, with new workloads continually being spun up, moved, and torn down.
  • The elasticity of the cloud permits workloads to easily expand as demand grows, which translates into a need to monitor massive amounts of data

Now, ProtectWise is making it incredibly easy for security teams to get visibility into their enterprise’s network activity in the cloud. If you want to read about it, check out our new white paper “Detecting Threats in the Cloud with the Cloud”. And if you want to see how easy it is, come by the ProtectWise booth (Booth 1854) at the AWS re:Invent conference where we’ll be demo-ing how ProtectWise provides visibility into cloud activity. If you can’t make it to AWS re:Invent or are too busy to stop by Booth 1854, feel free to submit a personal demo request online.

We’ve also achieved Advanced Tier Partner Status in the AWS Partner Network. And because of the innovative ways that we are using the cloud for The ProtectWise Grid™, we have also been invited to speak at the AWS re:Invent conference!

Gene Stevens, co-founder and CTO of ProtectWise, and Robert Tarrall, Director of Dev Ops, will be presenting “The Future of Cloud: Building with Stateless Infrastructure on Amazon EC2” on Thursday 1 December 2016 at the Venetian. If you are attending and have a full conference pass, make sure to add it to your schedule. You’ll learn a lot from this session!

Hope to see you at the conference.
