Google Cloud Next 2018 kicks-off today and, as a Google Cloud Platform partner, RedLock will be there in full force at booth S1431. We are announcing major enhancements to the RedLock Cloud 360 platform that deliver significantly greater interoperability and insights with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). These new features include integration with GCP Flow Logs, support for GCP Orgs, improved compliance packs, and support for Google Cloud services such as Kubernetes. Overall, RedLock is offering a range of new capabilities and enhanced support to organizations leveraging Google Cloud for their public cloud resource requirements.
Integration with GCP Flow Logs: Logging and monitoring are the cornerstones of network and security operations. Whether it’s performance analysis or network forensics, logging and monitoring let you identify traffic and access patterns that may present risks to your organization. RedLock provides real-time visibility into north-south and east-west network traffic, which comes through intuitive network visualization, enabling faster identification of network security threats such as access to sensitive workloads from malicious IPs; data exfiltration; crypto mining; and host compromise. It’s also now easier to identify and remediate network security risks by creating custom policies/rules, and integrating with enterprise security automation tools.
RedLock now integrates with Google Flow Logs to provide visibility into network traffic including detection of advanced network threats such as crypto mining, data exfiltration, and host compromises
Support for GCP Orgs: This capability provides central visibility and control over every resource that belongs to an organization. GCP provides specific resource containers—such as Organizations, Folders and Projects—that allow customers to group and hierarchically organize other Cloud Platform resources. This makes it easier to manage common aspects of internal resources such as access control and configuration settings. With RedLock’s new support for GCP Orgs, customers can automatically onboard thousands of projects and underlying resources within minutes, and gain centralized governance across their GCP environment.
Improved support for HIPAA, PCI and GDPR compliance: HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which covers virtually all of the healthcare industry), PCI (for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which encompasses credit card usage in industries such as retail), and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, which protects EU citizens’ online activities) represent major compliance mandates. The new feature eases cloud adoption by offering enhanced compliance both at the infrastructure and application layers through the shared responsibility model.
RedLock integrates with Google APIs to provide reporting across major compliance and security frameworks - HIPAA, PCI, NIST, GDPR, SOC 2
Support for Additional Google Services for Security/Compliance: Additional configuration and compliance monitoring for services such as Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and BigQuery are now available in RedLock Cloud 360. In addition to greater visibility, it accelerates the adoption of these Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) models by providing continuous security governance and monitoring.
