Microsec.ai Exits Stealth With Cloud Application Runtime Protection Platform

Microsec.ai on Tuesday emerged from stealth mode to deliver a Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) solution designed to protect cloud-native applications at runtime.

The company’s agentless CNAPP solution aims to secure multi-cloud IaaS and PaaS environments, as well as containers and data, through a single, unified interface.

Microsec.ai on Tuesday emerged from stealth mode to deliver a Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) solution designed to protect cloud-native applications at runtime.

The company’s agentless CNAPP solution aims to secure multi-cloud IaaS and PaaS environments, as well as containers and data, through a single, unified interface.

Founded in February 2021, the Santa Clara, California-based company offers support for major cloud infrastructure providers, including AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, and Oracle.

Microsec.ai claims to provide visibility into containers, microservices, network traffic, workloads, misconfigurations, and vulnerabilities, while also helping organizations remain compliant with policies and regulations and improve their overall security and governance.

“Business critical applications must be always-on and intellectual property must be continuously protected or the business suffers. Today, these valuable resources run in continuously changing IaaS environments that are under constant attack,” Mitthan Meena, Microsec co-founder and CEO, said.

The company also aims to provide full data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities to ensure the safety of sensitive data at rest and in motion.

Furthermore, Microsec.ai’s CNAPP solution provides network and architecture graph dashboards, so that administrators can view resource relationships, traffic, sensitive data, and any existing issues in context, and to be able to address them immediately.

Organizations also benefit from cloud security posture management (CSPM) and cloud workload protection (CWP), courtesy of machine learning-based detections.

“Protection for these environments and the data they contain needs to be continuous, data-centric, self-healing, and fast-to-deploy. Static, complicated, manual, and platform-centric options can’t meet the moment; it’s long past time to embrace runtime protection for multi-cloud environments,” Meena also said.
