Cutting-Edge Threat Intelligence Paired with Alert Logic Cybersecurity Experts Helps Organizations Detect Vulnerabilities and Malicious Activity in Custom Web Applications Faster.
Alert Logic today announced its integration with AWS Network Firewall, a new managed service that makes it easy to deploy essential network protections for Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Support for AWS Network Firewall provides customers another point of threat visibility into their IT environments to stop high profile and frequent web application attacks. Through this integration, Alert Logic provides web application threat detection coverage to AWS users through a curated set of Alert Logic signatures covering thousands of web application exploits.
AWS Network Firewall is a managed service that lets AWS customers detect and block malicious activity across all their Amazon VPCs without having to manage or deploy physical infrastructure. It can be deployed easily, with just a few clicks, and scales automatically with an organization’s network traffic.
Custom web applications are pervasive in organizations of all sizes. They contain, on average, as many as 33 vulnerabilities, six of which are critical, and are typically the most frequently attacked asset in an organization. With this integration, threats to custom web applications are analyzed by the Alert Logic managed detection and response (MDR) solution and security incidents are curated and surfaced to customers, extending the capabilities of internal security teams by helping address alert fatigue so they can focus on more value-added tasks.
“Alert Logic is a valued AWS Security Partner, with a team of managed security experts working around the clock to identify and proactively react to threats,” said Andrew Thomas, General Manager of Perimeter Protection, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Their integration with AWS Network Firewall provides in-depth threat intelligence and security monitoring to help customers reduce the likelihood and impact of a cybersecurity attack.”
By integrating threat intelligence from the Alert Logic MDR™ solution, AWS Network Firewall users have access to Alert Logic rules, eliminating the need for users to research, develop, and maintain their own ruleset as well as monitor attack activity 24/7. Protecting web application attacks requires defense-in-depth. Organizations can now gain unparalleled visibility into this crucial attack vector via a single service which uniquely combines network and log telemetry.
“Web applications are essential to businesses and their customers and are also among the most targeted and difficult to detect,” said Onkar Birk, Chief Product Officer, Alert Logic. “AWS Network Firewall is the latest point of visibility and a great addition to Alert Logic web application threat detection, giving security teams a broader view of their attack surface for greater security coverage.”
