THE CLOUD SECURITY CHALLENGE

Organizations are embracing Cloud environments and technologies for improved speed to business and costs savings. Yet many organizations struggle to ensure that their people, data and IT assets, and those of their customers and partners, remain secure and compliant in these environments. Unfortunately, finding security solutions that can practically deploy and match the promise of the Cloud have remained elusive – until now.

INTRODUCING SHIELDX AND APEIRO

ShieldX is a Gartner 2017 Cool Vendor in Cloud Security, founded by Silicon Valley veterans. They have completely re-imagined how to protect the flow of network traffic and data through the Data Centre and across diverse Cloud environments.

WHAT IS IT

APEIRO is a 100% virtualized, software-based solution that automates the process of implementing comprehensive, uniform security policy at extreme scale without the usual, associated issues with performance and high availability. Or the high costs and complexities of acquiring, deploying and managing it.

HOW IT WORKS

ShieldX has solved the challenge through innovation, using the same technologies modern data centers and the Cloud use today. Developed on the industry’s first microservices-based platform for Cloud security, APEIRO deploys as a single, virtual system and pane of glass on and across your existing infrastructure that it will protect – Whether on-premises, hosted and/or in the Public Cloud, including environments such as VMware vSphere®, OpenStack or AWS®.

 

Offering inline, network-based security, APEIRO extends micro-segmentation to Layer 7 with a full complement of DPI-enabled security controls for threat prevention, detection and outstanding visibility. In combination with real-time analytics, regulations to separate data, applications and users may be ensured, while malicious actors that get past the perimeter, intending to exfiltrate valuable assets or shut down services, are effectively detected and blocked from spreading their malware across the critical infrastructure.

WHY SHIELDX IS ‘COOL’

APEIRO is a first-in-class that has been uniquely designed to meet the needs of today’s businesses and their IT organizations – In ways that previous generations of security solutions and security vendors have failed to deliver.

Native, on-demand, elastic scale for the Cloud. IT organizations can automatically deploy within their infrastructure, across diverse “multi-cloud” environments, in less than 15 minutes, protecting over a Terabit/second of traffic in less than 30, and automatically scaling and turning-up or off in concert with your dynamic traffic flows and services.

Enterprise-grade security without the complexity or trade-offs. A single pane-of-glass to construct policy that is automatically deployed in-line with the comprehensive security controls expected of a mature, defense-in-depth solution that scales to detect and protect real-time, rather than forensically after the damage is done.

Built for cost-effective, Cloud business models. Available in either CapEx or OpEx consumption-based pricing models, it works with your IT organization’s budget processes. At only 2-4 cores per microservice andusing equipment you already own, it offers more protection, performance and availability at up to 50% less cost. And by using automation, your IT teams are released from the constraints of security appliances, and the time to ship, rack, stack, and manually deploy. They can improve productivity and better utilize valuable staff time and skills to focus on building effective policy, investigating incidents and supporting the business.

WHO SHOULD CARE & WHY

APEIRO is a natural fit for virtualization and Cloud teams that are interested in micro-segmentation and security solutions that will work natively and elastically with their infrastructure and their budgets.

 

APEIRO offers CISOs and their security teams the advanced controls for virtual infrastructure that’s needed, and that they expect and depend on for protection and compliance, without being forced into impossible trade-offs between security, compliance, SLAs and costs.

 

DevOps teams are immediately able to work with APEIRO through its 100%, REST API-driven platform that allows for seamless, programmatic integration for secure application deployment.

 

CIOs and all of their teams will appreciate the simplicity to acquire and deploy easily through its all-environments, all-controls-included approach.
