Bitdefender antimalware technologies now supports Amazon GuardDuty, a threat detection service that monitors for malicious activity and anomalous behavior to protect Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts, workloads, and data.
Bitdefender antimalware technology provides AWS customers with advanced threat detection to identify known and unknown malware, zero-day attacks, and malicious activity. When Bitdefender detects malware or abnormal activity in an Amazon GuardDuty environment, it alerts the customer and provides contextualised, actionable insights to help accelerate and guide response actions. Available in AWS Marketplace, Amazon GuardDuty customers can quickly and easily purchase a Bitdefender license for automated remediation capabilities to eliminate detected threats from their environment.
Organisations of all sizes and across all industries are increasingly migrating their architectures and workloads to the cloud. Gartner® estimates that by 2025, more than 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from just 30% in 2021. When running workloads in the cloud, effective security necessitates a shared responsibility model, where both the cloud provider and end customer jointly protect the environment and workloads, however, many organizations lack visibility into threats targeting their cloud workloads at runtime. Bitdefender technology supports Amazon GuardDuty with a focus on addressing this challenge.
Bitdefender antimalware technology provides multiple layers of protection, including heuristic analysis, machine-learning models for standard detection, advanced signatureless detection, signature-based detection and emulation. This security integration provides Amazon GuardDuty customers with multi-layered threat detection and protection for all cloud workloads across Windows and Linux operating systems.
“Adversaries are ramping up their attacks on public cloud workloads because they know that’s where organisations’ valuable data assets increasingly reside,” said Amy Blackshaw, vice president of product and technical marketing at Bitdefender. “The integration of Bitdefender technology within Amazon GuardDuty helps organisations become more cyber resilient in the cloud by providing accurate, real-time threat detection to stop attacks before they gain a foothold in their environment.”
