Ixia and Eastwind Collaborate to Deliver Breach Analytics of Cloud Network Traffic

Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced that Ixia and Eastwind Networks, a provider of best-of-breed solutions in enterprise breach analytics and detection technology, joined forces to deliver Eastwind Network Sensor for AWS. Powered by Keysight's Ixia CloudLens, the new solution offers elastic visibility and threat detection, as well as user and entity behavioral analytics to identify malicious activity, insider threats and data leakage within AWS.

Organizations continue to migrate to the public cloud. According to Cisco's Global Cloud Index 20181, 73 percent of the cloud workloads and compute instances will be in public cloud data centers by 2021, up from 58 percent in 2016. As cloud deployments ramp up, the ease of configuring security tools must ramp up equally.

"More and more enterprises rely on the cloud to run their businesses, and visibility into these environments is essential to security," said Paul Kraus, CEO, Eastwind Networks. "Until now, cloud security was complicated. But integrating CloudLens for visibility and Eastwind Breach Analytics, security teams can easily become a business enabler, not an obstacle."

Eastwind Network Sensor for AWS, powered by Keysight's Ixia CloudLens is the first security product to tightly integrate delivery of cloud network traffic via CloudLens with Eastwind Breach Analytics to provide complete visibility across networks to address an organization's changing attack surface. By embedding CloudLens into customers' cloud deployments with the Eastwind solution, users gain:

  • Intelligence: a clearer picture of what's happening across an organization‘s cloud infrastructure
  • Insight: into which threats and threat actors are active and posing risk
  • Integrated response and incident data: to more effectively identify and remediate threats and breaches

"In this age of a continuously evolving threat landscape, it has become even more important for your monitoring platform to evolve, even in the public cloud," said Scott Westlake, vice president of alliances at Keysight's Ixia Solutions Group. "The unique combination of SaaS-based CloudLens - innovating around public cloud visibility - and Eastwind Breach Analytics - innovating for holistic security - delivers a solution to help our customers secure their public cloud in this rapidly changing environment."
