Cavirin Showcased Google Cloud Closed-Loop Security and Security Command Center Integration

Cavirin Systems, Inc. demonstrated its closed-loop security for Google Cloud, as well as Google Cloud Security Command Center (Cloud SCC) integration at Next ‘19. A leader in providing Google Cloud support, Cavirin delivers on the demands for continuous security and compliance across platforms with its recently announced Google Cloud security capabilities.

As enterprises increasingly adopt hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, it is critical that these environments are protected. Augmented with machine learning, Cavirin closes the gap between monitoring and remediation, while Google Cloud SCC integration offers users a single point of security management across their different security tools. Combined with Cavirin's CyberPosture scoring, which provides the user with a real-time score that reflects their current cybersecurity posture across both workloads and cloud services, Cavirin's Google Cloud capabilities ensure a more secure hybrid cloud for critical applications.

"Our partnership with Google Cloud highlights a commitment to offering enterprises security across their hybrid environments, reducing the time to identify an attack and then remediating," said Anupam Sahai, Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Development at Cavirin. "By closing the loop through monitoring, risk scoring and auto-remediation, enterprise customers will reap the benefits of a secure ecosystem, keeping any financial, reputational and legal security issues out of the question."

Capabilities demonstrated included:

  • Closed-loop Security for Google Cloud via Google StackDriver Monitoring and Google Functions for Auto-Remediation: This closes the loop from monitoring to change management by offering automated identification and correction of account and services security issues before they become an issue. Manual remediation through prioritized gap reports are supported as well. Services supported include Virtual Private Clouds, Subnets, IAM, GKE, Compute Engine, Cloud Storage, BigQuery, Cloud KMS, and more. Additional services will follow in subsequent releases.
  • Workload Assessment and Remediation: Discovery of and visibility into GCP workloads, both VM and container. The solution assesses and then scores these assets against a broad set of controls, including the NIST CSF, CIS, SOC2, PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR, and then offers auto-remediation via Ansible Playbooks.
  • Google Cloud Security Command Center integration: Helps security teams prevent, detect, and respond to threats targeting their Google Cloud Platform resources from a single pane of glass. This offers visibility and control into risk posture monitoring and remediation of the customer's Google Cloud services and resources configurations, alerting the user to any changes including the what, who, and when, so he or she can take action. Cavirin's Google Cloud SCC Companion is available via the GCP Marketplace.
  • Application of Machine Learning to Mapping of Technical Controls: Cavirin is one of the first to apply machine learning to recommend technical controls for industry standards (e.g. NIST 800-171) and regulatory frameworks (e.g. HIPAA) with associated weights and severities, which in turn drives the ability for customers to drive compliance based on risk, using Cavirin's CyberPosture scores.

Cavirin removes risk, security and compliance as a barrier to cloud adoption by automating with a broad set of customizable frameworks, benchmarks and guidelines. The company's solution secures both the public cloud control plane as well as target hybrid cloud workloads (servers), on-premise, within the public cloud, and within containers. Cavirin maintains its cost-optimized footprint, quick deployment on-premise or within AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure, and less than 30 minutes to first remediation on-par with SaaS-based offerings.
