Fidelis Cybersecurity, an expanded provider of detection and response (XDR) platforms with the support of private equity firm Skyview Capital, has acquired the cloud security and compliance company CloudPassage.
With the acquisition, the CloudPassage team will be integrated into Fidelis, the companies said. In addition, CloudPassage CEO Carson Sweet will join Fidelis as head of cloud security.
CloudPassage offers Halo, a platform that automates security controls and cloud computing compliance between servers, containers, and IaaS in public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments.
Halo features include:
- Inventory and discovery of assets in the cloud: Automates cloud discovery, querying, and asset updates
- Cloud security monitoring: Keep track of changes and activities that may affect an organization’s cloud security stance
- Vulnerability and exposure management: Assess IaaS, server, and container resources to identify risks in vulnerable configurations, administrative access, and software packages
Halo also offers more than 20,000 preconfigured rules and more than 150 policy templates covering PCI, HIPAA and other standards, CloudPassage said.
What does the acquisition of CloudPassage mean for Fidelis?
The acquisition of CloudPassage improves Fidelis ’Elevate XDR platform, the companies said. It allows Fidelis to consolidate endpoint, network, and cloud security capabilities in Elevate to help Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts accelerate detection and response to threats.
Elevate provides unified threat prevention, detection, and response across all IT environments, Fidelis said. In doing so, Elevate empowers SOC analysts to stop cyber threats in their early stages.
In addition, Elevate allows SOC teams to automate threat response, Fidelis noted. It also allows these computers to detect, search for and respond to advanced threats in real time.
Together with Elevate, Fidelis offers cybersecurity solutions to help organizations fight cybercrime, data theft and espionage. It is owned by private equity firm Skyview Capital, which acquired Fidelis in June 2020.
