Red Canary Announces Full Coverage of All Major Cloud Providers – Dark Reading

3 minutes, 56 seconds Read


DENVER, March 5, 2024 – Red Canary today announced full coverage of its detection and response capabilities to include all major cloud infrastructure and platform services providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Red Canary can detect suspicious activity across all major cloud environments and seamlessly correlate that data with other leading cloud security products, enabling enterprises to find and stop threats before they can cause damage. Red Canary’s vendor-agnostic approach underpins these new capabilities, providing security teams with actionable threat intelligence and comprehensive visibility from the control plane to containers and workloads.

Security teams rely on various tools, but integrating them internally for threat detection and response can be challenging, especially in large organizations with multicloud environments.

Recent research shows that many businesses are currently using or planning to use at least two cloud infrastructure providers and about 31 percent are using four or more. As a result, IT and security teams are facing an increasing number of new cloud threats. In fact, in 2023, Red Canary detected cloud account compromises 16 times more frequently than in 2022, ranking it among the top five MITRE ATT&CK techniques analyzed across 58,000 confirmed threats identified in 216 petabytes of telemetry. 

With Red Canary, organizations can protect their cloud environments, identities, and endpoints, all using a single, intelligence-led security operations platform. This industry-leading approach significantly improves the productivity of overwhelmed security analysts by eliminating the need to look across multiple tools, sift through raw alerts from various sources, and manually analyze data. By trusting Red Canary to detect and respond to prevalent threats, internal security teams can have more time to focus on their business’s specific security needs and requirements.
