Free cloud asset inventory and security check – Sophos News

Think you know what you’ve got in the cloud? Think again.

The accessibility of the public cloud is a double-edged sword: while it enables teams to spin up new resources in minutes, it also makes it hard for IT teams to keep track of everything that needs to be secured.

Take control of your cloud security with a free inventory assessment and security check, powered by Sophos Cloud Optix.  Activate a free trial to get to get 30 days commitment-free usage:

  • Comprehensive inventory of everything you’ve got in the cloud: virtual machines, storage, containers, IAM Users etc.
  • Covers Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes clusters, and Infrastructure-as-Code environments
  • Automatically scans for security gaps so you can address areas of weakness
  • No agent, no install, no tie-in
Real-time security alerts, enabling you to take immediate action

Detect and prevent cloud security and compliance gaps

Cloud Optix is an agentless SaaS solution that integrates with your cloud infrastructure accounts using the native cloud provider APIs, logs, and cloud services.

It uses information from these sources to give you a detailed inventory of assets in your cloud accounts and provide an intuitive topological view of the environment’s architecture and traffic flows.
