Multi-cloud Visibility

Asset and network traffic visibility for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud is made simple with Cloud Optix. View accurate inventories and generate on-demand topology visualizations for multi-cloud environments in a single console, continually analyzed for security risks, over-privileged access, and spend anomalies.

Identify and Respond to Cloud Security Issues

Respond to Cloud Security Threats Faster

Focus on and fix your most critical security vulnerabilities before they are identified and exploited in cyberattacks. By identifying and risk-profiling security, compliance, and cloud spend risks, Cloud Optix ensures teams respond faster, providing contextual alerts that group affected resources with detailed remediation steps.

Manage Permissions Before They’re Exploited

Cloud Optix analyzes complex, interwoven Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles to visualize relationships, making it simpler to manage access privileges for user, group, and cloud service roles. offering guidance on where to make IAM policy updates with the cloud provider before over-privileged IAM access is exploited.


Security at The Pace of DevOps

Block vulnerabilities pre-deployment with Cloud Optix. Seamlessly integrate Sophos security and compliance checks at any stage of development to maintain the pace of DevOps without introducing threats into production environments.

  • Container Image Scanning
    Scan container images pre-deployment to prevent threats from operating system vulnerabilities and identify available fixes
  • Infrastructure-as-Code Scanning
    Automatically detect misconfigurations, embedded secrets, passwords, and keys in Infrastructure-as-Code templates

Optimize Costs and Improve Security

Optimize AWS and Azure infrastructure costs, increase security to accelerate cloud migration, and enable growth areas including remote working.

  • Track cloud costs for multiple services side by side on a single screen to improve visibility and reduce wasted spend.
  • Identify unusual activity indicative of abuse, highlighting top services contributing to spend with customizable alerts.
  • Receive independent recommendations to optimize AWS spend, integrate with AWS Trusted Advisor, and Azure Advisor.

Extend Your Data Sources With XDR

Sophos Intercept X with XDR is enhanced with Cloud Optix data to place security teams closer to the occurrence of a security event, with cross-platform detection capabilities that can provide deeper insight and context to issues.

  • Sophos Extended Detection and Response (XDR) goes beyond the endpoint, pulling in rich network, SaaS email, cloud workload, and AWS cloud environment data sources.
  • Investigate AWS cloud environment API, CLI, and management console activities with seamless integration to AWS CloudTrail.
  • Use queries associated with attacker tactics to detect Initial Access, Persistence, and Privilege Escalation.

Cloud Assets

'Cloud Asset' means a single virtual machine instance, including any server instance or database instance, that runs in a cloud environment that benefits from, or whose configuration is accessed by, the service. A ‘cloud environment’ means an environment facilitating or involved in the delivery of computing services over the internet, including but not limited to Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts, Microsoft Azure subscriptions, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) projects, Kubernetes clusters, and development code repositories.

Regulatory and industry compliance standards

Regulations and best practice standards the organization must demonstrate compliance with, such as CIS Benchmarks, HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI DSS.
