Cavirin Pioneers Machine Learning Driven CyberPosture Scoring and Closed Loop Security for Google Cloud, AWS and OS Resources

January 22, 2019 GMT

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 22, 2019--Cavirin Systems, Inc., the only company providing risk, cybersecurity and compliance posture for the enterprise hybrid cloud, today announced the general availability of its Winter 2019 CyberPosture Intelligence  release. New capabilities include closed-loop security for Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Security Command Center (SCC) integration, Ansible auto-remediation for Linux workloads, and machine learning-based CyberPosture scoring that helps customers prioritize remediation based on risk.


“Our Winter 2019 release is the next step in delivering on our vision of true multi-cloud closed-loop security,” said Bashyam Anant, Vice President of Product Management at Cavirin. “Current security solutions use a siloed approach for proactive and reactive security, leaving organizations vulnerable. With closed-loop security, Cavirin is the first to assess the impact of alerts related to new, deleted or changed resources from monitoring solutions like AWS CloudTrail and Google StackDriver, using CyberPosture scoring to prioritize infrastructure changes based on their risk. Security gaps can be auto-remediated using each cloud’s serverless functions.”

Cavirin is also the first to apply machine learning to recommend technical controls for industry standards (e.g. NIST 800-171) and regulatory frameworks (e.g HIPAA) with associated weights and severities, which in turn drives the ability for customers to drive compliance based on risk, using Cavirin’s CyberPosture scores.

“Compliance and security professionals struggle with translating regulatory requirements and industry standards to automated technical controls – spreadsheets and manual mapping processes are the state of the art. While organizations like the Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) have provided a universal/canonical representation of regulatory requirements, gaps still remain with respect to mapping requirements to technical controls with quantitative inputs that can drive risk scoring and analytics,” said Mukul Kumar, Vice President of Cyberpractice at Cavirin. “Cavirin’s Recommender System streamlines the mapping process while automatically assigning inputs required for CyberPosture scoring and risk-based remediation.”

Furthermore, Cavirin’s auto-remediation capabilities, based on serverless functions for AWS and Google Cloud, can be invoked to affect the required remediation, significantly reducing the time and effort to close security gaps identified by alerts. Closing the loop from alerts to scoring and remediation is at the heart of closed-loop security and helps address the top three concerns for protecting cloud workloads as described in a just-released AWS cloud security survey by Cybersecurity Research – visibility into infrastructure security (44%), setting consistent security policies (42%), and compliance (42%).

The complete list of Winter 2019 features includes:

Cavirin removes security compliance as a barrier to cloud adoption through automation 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. Cavirin maintains its cost-optimized footprint, quick deployment on-premise or within AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure, and less than 30 minutes to first remediation, on-par with SaaS-based offerings. Contact Cavirin for trials. The company will showcase its latest CyberPosture Intelligence capabilities at booth #4210 at RSA, which takes place March 4-8 in San Francisco.
