Aqua Security, the pure-play cloud-native security provider, recently announced the launch of runtime protection with minimal configuration to stop attacks in real time on running workloads. Protection is composed of new curated and optimized default security controls, as well as advanced threat intel from observations of real attacks on cloud native environments. Both the controls and threat intel are the result of knowledge gained through years of securing customers’ live production environments.
Customers can now apply this knowledge to achieve trusted and advanced runtime protection in minutes without requiring in-depth knowledge of their applications and environments.
Using eBPF technology and threat intel from cyber research team Aqua Nautilus to identify advanced threats, Aqua surfaces the most critical issues in real time while also implementing a set of controls to protect running workloads immediately, without disrupting the business.
Key benefits of Aqua Runtime Protection include:
- Discover attacks immediately with continuously updated kernel-level behavioral detection. Updates are based on cloud native threat research from Aqua Nautilus along with years of experience securing customer workloads in production.
- Respond faster and reduce attacker dwell time by stopping attacks with pattern-based anti-malware in production and the option to block or delete malware on access.
- Simplify incident investigation and rapidly determine the impact and attack path of a security incident with a detailed incident timeline including rich contextual information.
Aqua’s Runtime Protection solution is part of Aqua’s fully integrated Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), the Aqua Platform. Customers of the Aqua Platform also have access to the entire, full set of customizable, advanced runtime capabilities if and when they decide to define and implement more stringent policies.
