Dell SecureWorks, an industry leader in world-class information security services, announces a new Vulnerability Management Service (VMS) and a new Web Application Scanning (WAS) Service for the Cloud. These add-on Cloud security solutions are currently available for purchase by customers of Dell Public Cloud, Dell Cloud Dedicated Service and customers of VMware vCenter 5.0 environments.
In addition to the vulnerability management services, Dell SecureWorks is also offering cloud customers its Global Threat Intelligence Service, a service which offers expert analysis of millions of security data points related to new vulnerabilities, emerging threats and new adversary activity. These security offerings are the first of a series of security solutions Dell SecureWorks will be launching to Cloud customers in the coming months.
As part of the VMS for Cloud service, Dell SecureWorks security personnel will conduct regularly scheduled or “on demand” vulnerability scans of a customer’s cloud services and applications. Meanwhile, Dell SecureWorks’ Web Application Scanning (WAS) for Cloud service focuses on an organization’s cloud-based Web applications. It will provide regularly scheduled and “on demand” vulnerability scans of a customer’s Web applications. Security research shows that Web applications are one of the most common entry points for cyber attackers. It is, therefore, critical to ensure that all Web applications, including cloud-based applications, are properly secured. WAS for Cloud can scan web applications that reside behind login pages, enabling a security review of an organization’s Web applications.
If security vulnerabilities are found during the scanning process, the customer will immediately receive recommendations on how to fix them. And equally important is that the VMS and WAS for Cloud services are automatically updated to scan for new vulnerabilities, so the latest cyber threats are detected. Customers can feel confident if they add new applications or servers to their cloud environment, they will be scanned as the VMS and WAS for Cloud solutions create and maintain an accurate inventory of all Cloud assets.
