It tops the list of APN partners for its dedication to helping AWS customers build, market and grow successful cloud businesses.
“Sophos research shows that cybercriminals are relentlessly trying to attack cloud servers, using automation to scan for weaknesses like open cloud buckets and launching attacks within minutes of assets going live in the cloud,” said Dan Schiappa, chief product officer, Sophos. “Organizations are at risk of a security breach if they can’t see and properly secure what they’re putting into the cloud. Cloud Optix continuously monitors cloud assets, configurations and network traffic patterns to prevent provisioning of vulnerable infrastructure.”
More than 200,000 active AWS Marketplace customers can now easily access and set up Cloud Optix on a per host, per hour basis for flexible scaling, with no minimum term contract.
