NetApp, an American hybrid cloud data services and data management company, released Spot Security to identify, assess, and analyze cloud security posture. Spot Security makes it simple for DevOps and SecOps teams to work together to find configuration errors, shrink their potential attack surface, and guarantee compliance.

The agentless technology from Spot Security examines the connections between cloud resources to offer clear visibility and prioritized actions, automatically determining each cloud resource’s potential exposure and surfacing critical security threats based on their potential impact on the organization. These automated processes prevent alert fatigue, keep cloud infrastructure secure, and maintain the effectiveness of operations staff.

The key features of Spot Security include:

  • 360° visibility: Using graph visualization of risk maps and service maps, it makes it possible to see the security posture and attack surfaces, network analysis, asset inventory, and cloud user activity clearly from a single console.
  • Automated detection and remediation: It helps in finding configuration errors and abnormalities that can help multi-cloud infrastructure remediate security and compliance problems more effectively.
  • Compliance: It helps businesses comply with regulatory requirements and industry security standards to maintain compliance.
  • Prioritized in-depth analytics: Continuous monitoring and analysis can instantly detect new dangers, unusual activity, or new cloud resources. This allows DevOps teams to focus on clear goals while directing efforts toward genuine problems, eliminating false positives, and integrating security into cloud operations.

Azzedine Benameur, Head of Spot Security for Spot by NetApp, said, “DevOps engineers are constantly asked to deliver solutions to a wide range of challenges that can impact the efficiency and operations of their business. Spot Security provides DevOps and SecOps a solution that meets the critical requirement to ensure the security of their dynamic cloud environment, further innovating the Spot by NetApp CloudOps suite of solutions that automate and optimize operations in the cloud.”
