Threat Stack Launches Free Cloud Security Audit Trial
February 15, 2017

Threat Stack announced availability of a free cloud security trial for Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers.

The free trial provides DevOps and Security teams with a unique risk score for cloud environments based on security best practices established by both AWS and Center for Internet Security (CIS).

The new seven-day free-trial version of the Threat Stack Audit Plan is designed for organizations that need to establish a security baseline, identify AWS configuration risks, and demonstrate their cloud security posture to customers and stakeholders. A Threat Stack configuration audit scan takes less than five minutes to provide a score and recommended steps for improvement. With the Threat Stack free Audit Plan, users at any stage in their cloud security maturity, from early to advanced, immediately identify what is improperly configured in their environment and receives recommendations on how to enhance.

“Scaling resource instances in the cloud can create challenges for security professionals tasked with conforming to configuration policies and best practices,” said Brian M. Ahern, Chairman and CEO, Threat Stack. “Threat Stack Auditing capabilities are designed to immediately baseline customer's configuration risks and vulnerabilities and can also be augmented with continuous monitoring, alerting, and investigation into real-time threats across their entire infrastructure.”

For customers who want to take further action to secure their cloud environment, the free trial integrates with the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform (CSP) providing the only cloud security solution that brings together configuration auditing, real-time host level monitoring, compliance reporting, investigation and out-of-the-box workflow integrations. Threat Stack supports all aspects of customers’ cloud security needs, from early stage to rapid growth. Its cloud-native architecture automatically scales up or down with the capacity of customers’ infrastructures to ensure continuous visibility across elastic environments, including on-premise, private cloud, public cloud and hybrid environments.
