Cloud Optix

Public Cloud Visibility and Threat Response

Detect, respond, and prevent the cloud security and compliance gaps leaving you exposed

Close Hidden Gaps in Cloud Security

Cloud Optix delivers the continuous analysis and visibility organizations need to detect, respond, and prevent security and compliance gaps that leave them exposed. This provides a single view of security posture across Kubernetes clusters, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Infrastructure-as-Code environments.

Why Shutterfly uses Cloud Optix

Avoid Data Loss

Visualize infrastructure instantly and identify misconfigurations and possible data breach points.

Providing visibility into complex application stacks, Cloud Optix network topology visualization makes it simple to detect suspicious traffic patterns, reveal high value workloads, and uncover hidden data breach points.

Stop Unauthorized Access

It takes as little as 52 seconds for an attacker to identify public cloud workloads as a target. Cloud Optix AI-powered monitoring instantly identifies suspicious console login events, API calls and assumed-role API calls that suggest shared or stolen user credentials are being used by an attacker remotely.

Automate Security at the Pace of DevOps

Combining the power of AI and automation, your DevOps and security teams can realize continuous delivery without risk of replicating security vulnerabilities in the development pipeline.


Automated CI/CD Pipeline Security and Compliance

Automatically scan Infrastructure-as-Code templates merged to source control management, with pipeline deployment based on Cloud Optix security and compliance assessment results.

Drift Detection and Guardrails

Drift Detection and Guardrails

Continuously monitor and detect drift in configuration standards, and prevent, detect, and automatically remediate accidental or malicious changes in resource configuration.

Monitor Unlimited Environments

Monitor Unlimited Environments

Simple licensing allows you to monitor public cloud assets across an unlimited number of Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts, Microsoft Azure subscriptions, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) projects, and Kubernetes clusters.

The Benefit of Agentless

Cloud Optix agentless, SaaS-based service works perfectly with your existing business tools to automate cloud security monitoring, governance, risk, and compliance and DevSecOps processes.

Setup is simple across Kubernetes clusters, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Infrastructure-as-Code environments. There is no software to install, and ‘read only’ access safely and securely assesses the security posture of your cloud environments in as little as 30 minutes.

Sophos Central

Cloud Optix is integrated into Sophos Central, the intuitive console for managing all your Sophos products. Combining workload protection with Intercept X for Server, next-gen firewall management, and much more – simply configure all your policies from one place.

Cloud Security and Compliance is a Shared Responsibility

Public Cloud providers offer a great deal of flexibility. And while they’re responsible for physical protection at the datacenter, virtual separation of customer data and environments, whatever you put in the cloud, well, that’s your responsibility.

Security Designed for a Cloud Generation

Once you see it, you can secure it. With Cloud Optix running, deploy a range Sophos security solutions to protect your cloud assets. 

Secure your Amazon EC2 instances and Virtual Private Cloud with Sophos UTM and Intercept X for Server.

Sophos UTM for AWS is your complete security platform for next-generation firewall, web application firewall, IPS, advanced threat protection, cloud sandboxing, web content filtering, reporting, and VPN gateway.

Intercept X for Server guards virtual machines in AWS, whitelisting trusted services in minutes while intelligently allowing updates – all the time protecting against malware and ransomware.

Security for AWS

Sophos next-gen XG Firewall helps protect your Azure-based workloads against advanced threats, combining advanced networking, protections such as Intrusion Prevention (IPS), and web application firewalls (WAF), as well as user and application controls from a single console.

Intercept X for Server guards instances in Microsoft Azure, whitelisting trusted services in minutes, while intelligently allowing updates – all the time protecting your organization and data, from malware, and ransomware. VMs with a Sophos Server Protection agent are simply deployed into Azure and managed from Sophos Central.

Security for Azure

Sophos has developed its server-specific security for Google Cloud Platform to more easily protect your workloads.

Secure business-critical servers with established and next-gen methods like CryptoGuard anti-ransomware, malicious traffic detection, application whitelisting, and one-click lockdown.

VMs with a Sophos Server Protection agent are simply deployed into Google and managed from Sophos Central. Just specify which server group they should be a part of and which policies will apply to protect those VMs.
