NetApp has announced Spot Security is now generally available. Built for the cloud, Spot Security delivers continuous automated security that analyzes, detects, and prioritizes threats identifying critical risks and anomalies while prioritizing recommendations, remediation, and compliance. Spot Security enables DevOps and SecOps teams to work together to identify misconfiguration, reduce the attack surface, and ensure compliance.

As cloud adoption continues to grow, developing and securing software has taken on a new security reality, presenting additional challenges to the teams responsible for securing the environment they support. Deploying applications in a public or hybrid environment tends to be dynamic, with infrastructures spinning up and down multiple times daily to support cloud applications.

This dynamism presents security risks that can challenge the best with a simple misconfiguration resulting in costly security breaches that could result in a loss of millions, loss of customer trust, and expose IP to bad actors on a global scale.

Spot Security

Spot Security is an agentless technology that analyzes cloud configuration and resource relationships to provide clear visibility into misconfigurations that create security risks and prioritizes those risks and recommendations to address the most critical risks while simplifying developer security operations (DevSecOps). That is accomplished by automatically determining the exposure of each cloud resource and surfacing the most critical security threats. These automated actions eliminate alert fatigue and keep cloud infrastructure secure and DevOps teams moving fast.

Spot Security benefits include:

  • 360° Visibility: With a clear view into security posture and attack surfaces, network analysis, asset inventory, and cloud user behavior, all via an Agentless Assessment.
  • Graphical Visualization of Risk and Affected Assets: Visualize the network and risk topology of your resources to detect potential attack paths to your critical resources.
  • Prioritized In-Depth Analytics: Identify new risks, abnormal behavior, or new cloud resources instantly with continuous monitoring and analysis, providing clear objectives for DevOps teams to focus on and steer efforts to real issues, removing false positives, and embedding security into cloud operations.
  • Automated Detection and Remediation: Use guided remediations to eliminate risks by detecting misconfiguration and anomalies continuously in your cloud environment.
  • Compliance: Track conformity to the highest global cybersecurity standards and compliance to stay on top of your regulatory requirements.

Azzedine Benameur, Head of Spot Security for Spot by NetApp, said:

“DevOps engineers are constantly asked to deliver solutions to a wide range of challenges that can impact the efficiency and operations of their business. Spot Security provides DevOps and SecOps a solution that meets the critical requirement to ensure the security of their dynamic cloud environment, further innovating the Spot by NetApp CloudOps suite of solutions that automate and optimize operations in the cloud.”
