Fidelis will be better able to protect its customers in the cloud.
Fidelis Cybersecurity, No. 275 on the Channel Futures 2020 MSP 501, has acquired CloudPassage. CloudPassage is a provider of cloud security and compliance services.
CloudPassage safeguards cloud infrastructure for organizations in finance, ecommerce, gaming, B2B SaaS, health care, biotech and digital media. Its Halo platform unifies security and compliance across servers, containers and IaaS resources across any mix of public, private, hybrid, and multicloud environments.
Halo’s automation capabilities streamline and accelerate workflows between InfoSec and DevOps.
Fidelis Cybersecurity provides extended detection and response (XDR) solutions to Fortune 100 firms and governments worldwide.
Anup Ghosh is Fidelis Cybersecurity’s CEO.
Raising the Bar in XDR
“The acquisition of CloudPassage extends our vision to unify endpoint, network, cloud and deception in a single platform so our customers can detect and respond to adversaries earlier in the attack life cycle,” he said. “Adding the CloudPassage team and technology raises the bar in active XDR. Not only can our customers get out in front of adversaries across hybrid environments, but they can now increase the cost and complexity to the adversary by incorporating deception technology.”
