93% of organizations are moderately or extremely concerned about cloud security, and one in four organizations confirmed a cloud security incident in the past 12 months. Source: 2020 Cloud Security Report sponsored by (ISC)².

In the recent "Top Threats" report by Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), they state that they noticed a drop in the ranking of traditional cloud.

security issues under the responsibility of cloud service providers (CSPs). New, highly rated items in the survey are inherently specific to the cloud and thus indicate a technology landscape where consumers are actively considering cloud migration. Such topics refer to potential control plane weaknesses, metastructure and Application and Infrastructure failures and limited cloud visibility.

Cloud4C Managed Detection and Response

A seamless orchestration of technology, intelligence, and SOC expertise.

  • Centralized GCP Security Monitoring

    Cloud4C with the help of Cloud4C proprietary frameworks with 40+ security control objectives and 26 security tools, automatically collects and alerts on security data from critical GCP services such as Google Cloud Audit Logging, Stackdriver, CloudTrail, CloudWatch, and S3 and Audit logs, centralizing and simplifying AWS security monitoring. The service includes Security management, including Active Directory, firewall, endpoint protection, virtual network and antivirus which eliminates blind spots and ensures continuous threat coverage. Some notable components are as follows:

  • 24x7 Proactive Security Monitoring and Investigation

    Our experience Security Operations experts leverage our decades of managed security expertise and GCP tools such as Cloud IAM recommender, IAM policy troubleshooter, Audit logs enforcing the principle of least privilege by ensuring that members have only the permissions that they actually need and by monitoring and disrupting advanced threats around the clock.

  • Advanced and Integrated threat intelligence updates

    Our threat intelligence includes GCP-specific correlation rules, so we can detect the latest threats, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and anomalous behaviors in an enterprise’s GCP environment. It is also powered by Industry leading platforms such as Google Threat intelligence, Microsoft, OSINT, STIX&TAXI, MISP etc. and Cloud4C Threat experts.

  • Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

    Automatically scan an organization’s GCP estate including assets, security groups and configuration to identify vulnerabilities and security weaknesses.

    Cloud4C uses a combination of automated and manual scanning methods involving commercial and publicly available tools, as well as custom scripts and applications that were developed by Cloud4C.

  • Next-Generation Firewall

    Next-Generation firewalls protect GCP workloads using traditional firewall functionality as well as advanced features. Traditional firewall protection includes packet filtering, stateful inspection, proxying, IP blocking, domain name blocking, and port blocking. Next-gen firewalls add an intrusion prevention system, deep packet inspection, application control, and analysis of encrypted traffic to provide comprehensive threat detection and prevention.

  • Encryption

    Cloud4C ensures that data is encrypted when at rest and in transit. This ensures the data is near impossible to decipher without a decryption key that only enterprises have access to.

  • Intuitive dashboard

    We help organizations gain visibility across hybrid cloud environments, vulnerability and threat contexts couple with a step-by-step guidance to remediate threats.

  • Database Activity Monitoring (DAM)

    The Cloud4C Managed Database Activity Monitoring Service includes activity monitoring of databases for potential misuse and data extra filtration incidents. Management activities include DAM Agent provisioning, deployment, tuning and policy-based changes (including on a per-DB instance basis as needed), as well as vendor software and firmware updates.

  • Host Based Security System (HBSS)

    Cloud4C Host Based Security Systems Policy Manager and Agent offers active protection for all the enterprise’s server devices, platforms and operating systems. This offers proactive protection against local and network-based attacks.

  • Privileged Access Management (PAM)

    Cloud4C offers a fully autonomous platform for privileged account life cycle management. PAM helps to accomplish the following goals:

    • A condensed attack surface that protects against both internal and external threats
    • Reduced malware infection and propagation
    • Enhanced operational performance
    • Easier to achieve and prove compliance
  • Simplifies compliance in the cloud

    We secure collection and retention of raw and normalized logs to ensure the organization’s AWS environment adheres to key regulatory or industry compliance mandates, such as PCI DSS, NESA, SAMA, IRAP, HIPAA, or GDPR.

  • DevOps-friendly security

    Cloud4c supports all the CI/CD efforts of an organization with automated security monitoring across build, test, and production environments by leveraging our expertise with DevOps tools like PagerDuty, Slack, Jira among others.

  • Modernizing Security Operations Center (SOC) with an Intelligent SIEM + SOAR solution - Azure Sentinel

    We help enterprises take advantage of AI powered technology, Azure Sentinel to strengthen and simplify their security environment. During the engagement, our security experts will address all major areas of their Security Operations, including new tools or processes that would be beneficial to adopt. By understanding our client’s requirements and the elements they would like to keep consistent with improved capabilities, Cloud4C makes introducing Azure Sentinel and integration with an enterprise’s GCP workloads seamless and cost-effective.
