By Cloud Computing Outlook | Wednesday, May 29, 2019

FREMONT, CA – Infocyte, a premier solution provider in threat detection and instant incident response (IR), recently announced the launch of HUNT Cloud, the first agentless cloud workload protection platform, specially designed for Amazon Web Services (AWS). The platform will enhance checkpoint software’s threat detection and incident response in dynamic AWS environments. The product capabilities include agentless deployment via API, automated threat detection, and instant root cause analysis for certifying cloud workloads.

Infocyte is bolstered by a network of managed detection response (MDR) and managed security service providers (MSSP). Infocyte HUNT Cloud platforms deliver agentless deployment, allowing companies to detect multiple attacks and undertake prompt responses. It aids in the prevention of security breaches before they can inflict severe damage, bringing down the dwell time to hours instead of months. Infocyte utilizes forensic state analysis (FSA) powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to identify and neutralize threats. Also, the company offers the most scalable and efficient memory analysis available in the market.

Unlike traditional endpoint protection platforms (EPPs), Infocyte HUNT Cloud combines comprehensive threat detection methods and IR for high-growth cloud environments. It facilitates agentless deployment through AWS APIs to identify, categorize, and respond to sophisticated threats and vulnerabilities. The utilization of AWS CloudTrail and Activity Trace provides timely insight into the cause of threats in the host and cloud management layers. It also facilitates quick IR and remediation. Infocyte aims to extend the services of HUNT Cloud to Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as well.

As organizations start moving their assets to cloud platforms, cloud security has become a primary concern. Infocyte HUNT Cloud equips the organizations to secure their assets across the cloud platforms, enabling quick detection and response to threats, anomalies, and vulnerabilities.

Infocyte HUNT Cloud delivers the advanced incident response and forensics required by the dynamic cloud infrastructures. The cloud security solution enables patent-pending memory analysis to address the threats which can potentially bypass application whitelisting. It provides a complete inventory of the cloud environment, including instances and workloads. Infocyte also offers flexible pricing options with off-cloud analysis and consumption-based billing.
