Key benefits

Agentless, cloud-native architecture for today’s cloud

The CloudGuard Dome9 service uses the native security controls provided by public clouds to protect all cloud resources, including built-in services such as AWS RDS, GCP compute engine instances, and Azure LBs, meeting the needs of today’s public clouds that agent-based solutions cannot address. CloudGuard Dome9 allows you to protect multiple cloud environments by combining cloud-agnostic policy automation with cloud-native security capabilities. You can specify policies once across multiple clouds, and the system uses underlying cloud controls to implement the policy on each cloud.

Faster Time-to-Value with CloudGuard Dome9

With no software to install and no agents to manage, you can secure your environment with CloudGuard Dome9 in under five minutes. You never have to worry about software updates and scaling problems. CloudGuard Dome9 integrates with your AWS accounts leveraging innovative cross-account trust policy to gather security information, rather than sharing keys and credentials.

Remediate in Place — Find it, fix it, stay fixed

CloudGuard Dome9 is not just a monitoring solution. In addition to powerful visualization capabilities that allow you to review security posture in real-time to discover any vulnerabilities, compromised workloads, open ports or misconfigurations, CloudGuard Dome9 also allows administrators to take the necessary actions to rapidly mitigate risk through remediation from a single platform. No more patchwork of tools needed for monitoring, remediation, or enforcement, thus bringing agility to the security and compliance lifecycle.
