Palerra Launches New Incident Response Library and Behavioral Analytics for AWS
Palerra, the cloud security automation company, today announced the launch of its new LORIC Incident Response Library for Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Behavioral Analytics for AWS. The library is the first in a set of Palerra templates for the AWS Cloud.

Enterprises relying on AWS infrastructure to build and deliver custom applications can now use Palerra's LORIC platform for deep visibility and governance. LORIC seamlessly covers infrastructure, applications and users across AWS, complementing the AWS platform security according to the shared responsibility model.

The LORIC platform covers all critical AWS resources that fall under a customer's responsibility, including configuration of Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Elastic Load Balancing and Amazon Route 53. In one click, IT security teams can set the desired configuration baseline and level of security across any number of AWS resources, environments and custom applications.

Palerra, a silver sponsor at AWS re:Invent, will demo this brand new technology at booth number 1029.

"LORIC has allowed our small IT security team to seamlessly scale to the needs of the business and monitor multiple regions of our AWS environment," said Daniel Thomas, director of IT at Edgile. "We use AWS for our client projects and to store sensitive data. The ability to monitor for weak security controls and suspicious user activity across our entire cloud environment is critical to our business success." 

To further serve IT security teams in protecting their cloud environments, Palerra has extended LORIC with an Incident Response Library-a set of recommendation templates for IT Security teams, allowing them to quickly respond to any risk events related to cloud applications. The Incident Response Library offers recommendations on detected threats, security controls, and policy alerts relevant to any enterprise using AWS environments.

LORIC Behavioral Analytics for AWS monitors all user activity across an organization's entire cloud footprint in real time, detecting dangerous actions taken by privileged users, actions that can put a company at risk. In addition to AWS, LORIC Behavioral Analytics also covers enterprise cloud services including Salesforce, Box, Microsoft® Office 365 and ServiceNow.

"Enterprises globally have embraced AWS for their mission-critical workloads and applications. As more applications move into AWS, enterprise security teams maintain responsibility for ‘security in the cloud', and need visibility across both the cloud infrastructure, as well as the applications that run on them," said Rohit Gupta, founder and CEO of Palerra. "With today's release, our LORIC platform now provides comprehensive visibility, precise behavioral analytics and a rich set of incident response templates, optimized for AWS."

The LORIC platform, including Incident Response Library for AWS and Behavioral Analytics is generally available now.
