Sophos Optix Updates – June 2019

Cloud Optix Feature Updates

The average organization is now running applications in an average of two public clouds, making this the perfect time to announce latest feature updates for the “big three” public clouds (AWS, Azure, and Google) in Sophos Cloud Optix.

The latest research above shows the need for better public cloud security, governance, and compliance monitoring is more important than ever for SMBs and enterprise customers.

Sophos Cloud Optix is now even better placed to serve those needs. We’ve added the ability to visualize Sophos UTMs on AWS networks, improving Azure security and compliance features, Google network topology visualization and AI, configurable scanning frequency, and much more.

  • Refreshed topology visualization with the latest AWS icons for network resources
  • Add AWS accounts to Cloud Optix using Terraform infrastructure provisioning tool

Microsoft Azure

  • Out-of-the-box Azure compliance policies added for GDPR and HIPAA compliance standards, extending Azure compliance policies to include Sophos best practice, CIS benchmarks, PCI DSS, SOC2, GDPR, and HIPAA
  • Now detect suspicious user login behavior using AI, such as multiple logins to the same account at the same time, or a user logging in from different parts of the world on the same day, and all signs of potential credential theft
  • Activity logs in the inventory view now allow customers to determine what, who, and when changes were made to their Azure resources

Google Cloud Platform

  • New GCP topology visualization provides an end-to-end view of your network in the Google Cloud Platform, including inbound, outbound, and internal traffic
  • Network traffic anomaly detection provides greater security. Detect and alert on suspicious traffic patterns and identify hidden vulnerabilities, such as databases with security groups left open to the public internet

Cloud Optix management enhancements

The first round of enhancements also goes further, with improvements to management features in the Cloud Optix console:

  • Configurable scanning frequency allows admins to choose when and how often to run benchmark and compliance checks for each environment
  • Improved experience with Infrastructure as Code (IaC) repository on-boarding, with the ability to see push event history
