Kaspersky Launches Hybrid Cloud Security Product

Kaspersky Lab this week announced the launch of a new product designed to help companies protect their hybrid cloud environments against both internal and external threats.

According to the security firm, the new Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security can be integrated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, and it offers orchestration and protection capabilities to organizations of all sizes.Kaspersky launches Hybrid Cloud Security

The new offering also includes system hardening, operational hygiene, workload defense, and runtime protection capabilities, Kaspersky says.

In an effort to solve problems related to lack of visibility, which are often introduced by the use of multiple cloud management panels, Kaspersky says Hybrid Cloud Security integrates seamlessly with internal and virtual infrastructure.

The product allows security teams to control who can access corporate data in the cloud and on premises, and receive notifications whenever potential misuse is detected.

Kaspersky says its new product can detect ransomware and other threats, and block exploits. Hybrid Cloud Security also includes vulnerability assessment and automated patch management capabilities.

“Keeping in mind how much valuable data is now stored in the cloud, it is critical for businesses to ensure they have holistic protection and visibility across all cloud platforms,” said Vitaly Mzokov, solution business lead, Kaspersky Lab.

“Our philosophy is to create a well-balanced blend of best-of-breed protection, resource efficiency, and enterprise-level orchestration capabilities for public and private cloud environments. We are sure that this combination will provide our customers with a secure migration to Amazon and Microsoft Azure cloud within their digital transformation projects,” Mzokov added.
