A single solution for Security Monitoring in the on-premise data centre, hosted data centre and the public cloud.
Assuria Ltd has launched Assuria CSS, providing security monitoring and compliance solutions for users of public cloud computing services.
Assuria CSS delivers a range of IT security monitoring solutions for enterprises using Amazon Web Services (AWS). CSS provides an easy path for AWS customers to benefit from corporate data centre levels of security and compliance monitoring in their AWS cloud operations. CSS will soon be available on other cloud computing platforms.
Most first generation security information and event management (SIEM) solutions are unable to collect and process the new types of rich security and operations data available from cloud providers such as AWS. But, CSS works seamlessly in public cloud environments and in this first release enables AWS customers to exploit the security and operational data available from the core AWS services (including Cloudwatch, CloudHSM, S3, EMR, RDS and EC2) for security monitoring, forensic investigations, operational efficiency and compliance purposes.
Assuria CSS is built on ALM, a hybrid SIEM and forensic log management technology that has been designed to collect, secure, analyse and process any format of data. If required, ALM will also normalise and export to third party analytics services with the minimum loss of integrity and while still retaining and securely storing the original and complete log files. Traditionally used by the most demanding commercial and government customers, with complex IT estates distributed across multiple locations, Assuria’s ALM technology is designed to bring this same level of efficiency and integrity to the challenge of monitoring security in the cloud.
ALM SIEM software technology works in fully integrated native mode across public cloud, private cloud and on-premise data centres, allowing Assuria CSS to deliver a common security monitoring solution across the whole spectrum of enterprise computing. Existing Assuria ALM SIEM users can easily extend their ALM deployment into AWS today, bringing AWS operational and security data into their on-premise ALM SIEM protective monitoring (PM) service. AWS data could be appearing in a matter of hours!
