Fidelis Cybersecurity supports Microsoft Azure's virtual network

Fidelis Cybersecurity has announced its support for Microsoft Azure´s high-speed virtual network terminal access point (TAP) to enable continuous mirroring of virtual machine (VM) network traffic, without the use of agents, directly to Fidelis Network sensors, the company said.

Applications and workloads are continuing to migrate to the cloud but security visibility for cloud-based applications has lagged behind. With cyber attackers constantly exploiting weaknesses and access credentials, cloud network traffic analysis is critical for threat detection, threat hunting, and data loss and theft detection.

The Microsoft Azure Virtual Network TAP allows Fidelis customers with Fidelis Network, a component of the Fidelis Elevate platform, to quickly deploy cloud network traffic analysis for north-south and east-west communications of cloud VMs. The solution also provides a monitoring boundary between VNETs for Fidelis Network sensors deployed in Azure VMs and customer VM-based applications and workloads.

Customers can also increase their cloud security by adding the Fidelis Endpoint detection and response (EDR) and Fidelis Deception components of Fidelis Elevate. Unifying these components provides customers with an automated threat detection, hunting and response platform which can be managed inhouse or through the Fidelis Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service.

Fidelis Cybersecurity is the provider of automated detection and response. For more information go to www.fidelissecurity.com.
