NETSCOUT Omnis Cyber Intelligence Integrates with AWS Security Hub

NETSCOUT | November 11, 2021

NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC. a leading provider of cybersecurity, service assurance, and business analytics solutions, today announced that Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) customers will now have added visibility and security when migrating workloads to AWS using NETSCOUT's Omnis® Cyber Intelligence (OCI) integration with AWS Security Hub.

NETSCOUT OCI is the industry's fastest and most scalable network security software solution, built on the foundation of the industry's most prominent network monitoring and packet recording and analysis technology. It uniquely detects and investigates suspicious activities in real-time and retrospectively, identifies threats early in the attack life cycle to prevent infections from spreading, stops future attacks, and identifies compromised assets.

As a cloud security posture management service, AWS Security Hub performs automated, continuous security best practice checks against AWS resources, aggregates alerts, and enables automated remediation.

The integration between NETSCOUT OCI and AWS Security Hub enhances the corporate security posture by extending the breadth and depth of cyberthreat visibility and intelligence. The integration is seamless since NETSCOUT OCI automatically formats violations in the Amazon Security Findings Format (ASFF) with built-in intelligence to suppress duplicate alerts and group them as needed. NETSCOUT OCI, through its integration with AWS Security Hub, helps detect, investigate, and respond to potentially malicious activity exposing risks that exist in hybrid cloud interdependencies.

"As organizations migrate workloads to the cloud, their infrastructure becomes increasingly complex, making end-through-end visibility a necessity to uncover increased attack surfaces and combat threat exposure,As an AWS Validated Technology and Public Sector Partner with Network and Migration competencies, we've been in lock-step development with AWS. We're excited that customers can realize the benefits of NETSCOUT OCI, which is now fully integrated onto AWS Security Hub."

More data records were lost or stolen in the fi rst half of 2017 than in all of 2016 (1). And in 2017, Gartner found organizations were gravely underprepared for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). More than half of companies affected by the regulation will not be in full compliance when it takes effect in May, the group said (2). With only two months to go before the regulation is enforced, studies show little has changed. Yet the pressure of complying with the upcoming law weighs more heavily on everyone’s shoulders by the day. Fortunately, solutions are readily available to businesses big and small seeking to ensure cyber resilience on their way to GDPR compliance.
