ColorTokens Inc. has launched its new product, Xcloud. Xcloud’s agentless, automated, and deep scanning technology finds the most elusive threats across cloud and container environments fast and without disruption.
Xcloud combines vulnerability management, malware detection, and compliance monitoring all in one platform, saving time, resources, and cost. Customers worldwide can now gain access to Xcloud directly from AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company said.
Today’s enterprises are leveraging cloud technologies at a hyper-scale. According to the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2021, “By 2023, 70 per cent of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services, up from 40 per cent in 2020. By 2025, more than 99 per cent of cloud breaches will have a root cause of preventable misconfigurations or mistakes by end-users.”
To address the unique challenges of cloud security shortages of skilled staff, tools not designed for the cloud, limited or no visibility, and the inability to control cloud security enterprises need simple, fast, agentless, and autonomous tools to provide the support they need.
“In today’s Cloud-Era, it is widely embraced that cloud environments require agentless tools. But, current tools for cloud security follow a fragmented approach, and these siloed point security tools cannot deliver end-to-end visibility on the comprehensive security posture of the enterprise business,” said says Rajesh Khazanchi, chief executive officer of ColorTokens.
He further added that ColorTokens now uniquely solves enterprise cloud security challenges, combining Xcloud with our comprehensive platform to bring unparalleled risk visibility, essential insights, and automation into the risks that threaten cloud and container environments.
Ways in which Xcloud helps organisations
Xcloud uniquely allows security teams to find and fix the deepest risks in their cloud.
It helps uncover more critical risks. Xcloud’s ShadowScan dives deeper into workloads and containers at the OS level to detect vulnerabilities and risky configuration issues that are often missed. ShadowScan creates and scans a complete replica of workloads to eliminate disruptions, downtime, and impact on applications, the company said
The company further explained that in terms of preventing supply chain attacks. Xcloud’s ChainScan uncovers hidden vulnerabilities in critical application libraries and scans container and cloud workloads for all software dependencies. This allows enterprises to identify the risks introduced in third-party packages throughout their entire application software supply chain.
It also helps in detecting the latest threats. Xcloud automatically tracks the latest vulnerabilities and malware from multiple threat intelligence and vulnerability sources. Every security scan of environments uses a real-time database to find the latest threats so businesses can continuously detect and remediate new threats.
“When compared to the two other leading solutions in the cloud security market, ColorTokens’s Xcloud uniquely delivers brilliant ease of use and unmatched deep visibility into the cloud,” said Harish Akali, CTO, ColorTokens.
Ravi Pattabhi, VP of cloud security, ColorTokens added that as a result of Xcloud’s automated, agentless, customer-obsessed approach, combined with its availability in AWS Marketplace, Xcloud delivers instantaneous onboarding and results without any disruption.
