AWS re:Invent Day 3: What Partners Wanted to Hear
… improve pure-play SD-WAN deployment, according to the company.
“With branch locations scaling up to the hundreds, if not thousands, of sites, the need for flexibility and simplified management powered by the cloud is critical,” said Kishore Seshadri, vice president and general manager of SD-WAN solutions at Aruba, which is owned by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “The integration between Aruba’s SD-WAN solution and AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager uses the power of the cloud to seamlessly connect branches to workloads in any region.”
Aruba is demonstrating the SD-WAN-AWS Transit Gateway platform this week at AWS re:Invent.
Barracuda Pairs Cloud Security Guardian with Amazon Detective
Cloud security company Barracuda Networks said this week is has integrated Cloud Security Guardian with AWS’ Amazon Detective security service.
Cloud Security Guardian provides visibility into cloud workload security, facilitates compliance and automates security-incident remediation. Amazon Detective analyzes, investigates and identifies the cause of security findings or suspicious activities. It automatically collects log data from AWS resources and uses machine learning, statistical analysis and graph theory to help users visualize and conduct faster and more efficient security investigations.
With the Amazon Detective integration, Barracuda customers can gain deeper insight into threats or violations exposed by Cloud Security Guardian. For example, if Cloud Security Guardian detects a policy violation in a specific region, the customer can drill down into Amazon Detective and investigate whether a breach occurred due to the violation, whether there was a lateral impact, and so on. This enables the ability to fix the problem before more attacks occur, Barracuda said.
“The integration with Amazon Detective makes it simple for customers to take their response a step further and understand the impact of the threat by learning more about the context of an attack, such as if there was a spike in inbound or outbound traffic flow after the attack or if there is additional intelligence available about the IP making the attack,” said Tim Jefferson, a senior vice president at Barracuda.

“The cloud provides a number of business-critical benefits, and having the right security solutions in place is key in successful cloud operations,” said John Maddison, executive vice president of product and CMO at Fortinet. “As organizations increasingly leverage AWS, our collaboration to deliver cybersecurity solutions on the cloud helps to enhance security and allow organizations to reap the full breadth of benefits the cloud provides.”
Fortinet is exhibiting at this week’s AWS re:Invent expo.
