Avanan Launches All-in-one Cloud Security Service
November 23, 2015
Avanan, a company that disseminates cloud-based security protection from third-party vendors, recently announced its introduction of one-click deployment for all types of the information security it offers.
By using third party security products from vendors such as Check Point, Palo Alto (News - Alert) Networks, and Symantec, Avanan can offer everything from virus scanning to cloud-based access to secure files – all the tools enterprises need to keep their data secure. It works by protecting access to other cloud-based software that enterprises use every day; therefore, it can protect word processing in Office 365, storage in Box, file sharing with Google (News - Alert) apps, and much in between.
Gil Friedrich, the CEO of Avanan, spoke about how his company is different than the traditional security vendor because it capitalizes on the strengths of all other vendors around it.
“We came from the world of network security, where our customers told us that their data was moving to the cloud,” Friedrich began before noting that many of the available security products at that time were both immature and proprietary – meaning they could only protect certain types of end-user software.
“As we have seen in security, no single vendor has ever been able to provide best of breed in all technologies, so we set out to solve the problem with a completely different approach,” Friedrich continued, “creating a platform that interoperates any security with any cloud. All with a click of a button.”
Avanan pointed out in its announcement that this single-click product has only been around for a handful of weeks. However, in that short time, many of the largest publicly-traded companies, as well as hospitals and educational facilities, have hopped on board and are experiencing the benefits that cloud-based security can bring.
The point of Avanan's security is to take advantage of the best in the industry. It considers the best security software in the market and repackages it to give enterprises an all-in-one tool. With one subscription, they can access virus scanning, file cleaning, data encryption, detection of unwanted network security threats and intrusions, and file access for all their cloud-based applications. It works from cloud to cloud and means to be simple to use while powerful enough to defend against the most sophisticated attacks.
