ColorTokens Launches Xcloud, Standalone Cloud Security Protection for All Enterprise Environments
ColorTokens extends the Xtended ZeroTrust™ platform to include comprehensive cloud security for the modern enterprise, launching Xcloud on AWS Marketplace.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ColorTokens Inc., a leading innovator in Zero Trust autonomous cybersecurity solutions, has announced the launch of its new product, Xcloud. Xcloud’s deep, automated, agentless scanning technology quickly and nonstop detects the most elusive threats in cloud and container environments. Xcloud combines vulnerability management, malware detection and compliance monitoring in one platform, saving time, resources and costs. Customers around the world can now access 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).
Businesses today are taking advantage of cloud technologies at scale. According to Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cloud Security, 2021“By 2023, 70% of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services, up from 40% in 2020. By 2025, more than 99% of breaches of the cloud will be root-caused by avoidable misconfigurations or mis-users.”
To address the unique challenges of cloud security – shortage of skilled personnel, tools not built for the cloud, limited or no visibility, and inability to control cloud security – enterprises need tools that are simple, fast, agentless and self-reliant to provide the support they need.
“In today’s cloud era, it is widely accepted that cloud environments require agentless tools. But today’s cloud security tools follow a piecemeal approach, and these siled ad-hoc security tools can’t provide end-to-end visibility into the entire enterprise security posture. company,” says Rajesh Khazanchi, CEO of ColorTokens. “ColorTokens now uniquely solves enterprise cloud security challenges, combining Xcloud with our comprehensive platform to bring unparalleled risk visibility, critical insights, and risk automation that threaten cloud and data environments. containers.”
With nothing to install, deploy or configure, Xcloud protects you automatically. Xcloud enables security teams to find and remediate the deepest risks in their cloud:
- Discover more critical risks. Xcloud’s ShadowScan™ dives deeper into workloads and containers at the operating system level to uncover vulnerabilities and risky configuration issues that are often overlooked. ShadowScan™ creates and analyzes a full replica of workloads to eliminate interruptions, downtime and application impact.
- Prevent supply chain attacks. Xcloud’s ChainScan™ uncovers hidden vulnerabilities in critical application libraries and scans container and cloud workloads for any software dependencies. This allows companies to identify risks introduced in third-party packages throughout their application software supply chain.
- Detect the latest threats. Xcloud automatically tracks the latest vulnerabilities and malware from multiple threat and vulnerability intelligence sources. Each environments security scan uses a real-time database to find the latest threats so organizations can continuously detect and remediate new threats.
“Compared to the other two market-leading cloud security solutions, ColorTokens’ Xcloud uniquely offers exceptional ease of use and unparalleled deep cloud visibility,” said Harish Akali, CTO of ColorTokens.
Ravi Pattabhi, VP of Cloud Security at ColorTokens, adds, “With Xcloud’s automated, agentless, and customer-centric approach, combined with its availability on AWS Marketplace, Xcloud delivers instant onboarding and results and without any interruption.
