CloudHealth is well established in the industry as a cloud management leader. Launched in 2019, CloudHealth Secure State is a relatively newer addition to the CloudHealth by VMware portfolio.

With our CloudHealth Secure State product line, we are disrupting the public cloud security market with a novel, context-based risk detection and remediation approach.

Ranging from tech startups to large financial institutions, customers are using CloudHealth Secure State to protect cloud native app infrastructure.

“We enable you to visualize the complete blast radius of a violating cloud resource. The context includes helpful insights such as resource details, risk score, and the ability to see connected hosts and associated access credentials. This information is usually pretty hard to collect but is absolutely critical for you to proactively assess the potential damage that can be caused, should an attacker obtain access to those AWS credentials or hosts,” said Jason.

AWS enables scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

For AWS, CloudHealth Secure State delivers depth of service coverage with support for over 120+ AWS cloud resource types. Users can leverage 380+ pre-defined AWS security and compliance rules or build their own to get real-time detection of service misconfigurations and threats including connected violations and IAM privilege escalations. With CloudHealth Secure State, AWS security and operations teams can easily search inventory, query a real-time cloud CMDB to further investigate risk, and collaborate with developers to automate remediation actions.
