CloudPassage debuts Project Cielo for public infrastructure services designed for the Halo Platform

CloudPassage, provider of automated cloud workload and container security, announced this week beta release of its newest product built on the Halo platform, (code-name: Project Cielo), which offers complete visibility and insights into the resources in use across all cloud service providers (CSP) accounts and services within a single interface.

Currently, CloudPassage’s Halo platform, which includes Container Secure and Server Secure, is a solution that allows enterprises to secure assets like servers, cloud instances, containers and artifact registries using a single platform, regardless of asset location.

The addition of Project Cielo extends the Halo platform to handle cloud-delivered compute, storage, and other infrastructure services, making it unique in protecting application components anywhere and in any delivery model, at speed and scale.

Functional capabilities of Project Cielo include continuously monitoring AWS services for adherence to CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark, AWS best practices and internal configuration standards. It also delivers enhanced compliance reporting capabilities with detailed results that support all benchmark rules. It can deliver “worldview” with contextual intelligence about monitored assets to better inform technical risk analysis. It also identifies applications which are at risk, hierarchically organizes the most urgent situations, IAM role misconfigurations, exploitations, applications and data that could be affected and EC2 instances with halo agent. It also automates remediation requests to responsible application team via SNS.

“The launch of Project Cielo demonstrates our dedication to building out a complete tech stack for customers,” said Siri Oaklander, advanced technologies principal at CloudPassage. “Project Cielo offers a competitive feature set for public cloud infrastructure services, so now, for example, offerings like Amazon Services can receive comprehensive coverage (for containers, servers and cloud platforms), not just coverage for EC2.”
