Lastline Defender
for Cloud

Get Complete Visibility Into Threats Targeting Your Public Cloud Workloads

Improve Your Cloud Security

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments such as AWS and Azure are under attack. The complexity of migrating workloads into a shared responsibility security environment leaves many organizations with critical gaps in their security. Bad actors target public clouds since they know that these often have weaker protection than the on-premises data center.

Unmatched Visibility into Threats Targeting Your Cloud Infrastructure

Lastline Defender™ is the first native cloud Network Detection and Response (NDR) solution that delivers unmatched visibility of advanced threats in both your internal and external public cloud traffic.

Attackers employ a range of techniques to penetrate your cloud infrastructure, launch new instances, and move laterally to launch attacks on other workloads, before ultimately harvesting your data. These techniques include:

  • Targeting your servers in public subnets in your virtual private cloud (VPC) on AWS or virtual network (VNet) in Azure.
  • Exploiting a misconfigured server with open ports to gain a foothold in your internet-facing assets.
  • Moving laterally in your public cloud to find servers in your private subnet which you thought were safe (because they do not have a route to the Internet).
  • Compromising servers running in your AWS or Azure instances and downloading data.

Agentless Visibility of Threats

You can deploy Lastline’s industry-leading AI-powered NDR technology to protect your public cloud workloads, without the need to deploy agents or collectors.

Lastline Sensors for Cloud provide immediate visibility into threats and intrusions across your public cloud workloads, enabling you to detect and contain sophisticated threats before they disrupt your business. You gain immediate visibility of malicious activity entering and operating within your AWS or Azure environments so you can respond faster.

  • Inbound Exploits of Cloud Workloads: Prevent attacks against vulnerable applications and services in public clouds
  • Malicious Lateral Traffic: Detect when an attacker scans for other workloads and prevent discovery of additional services and block lateral movement and connection to an unusual port
  • Data Exfiltration: Detect and block anomalous data access before a bad actor can exfiltrate the data

AI-Powered Threat Detection and Response

Lastline Defender uses a combination of three complementary cloud security techniques to detect the advanced threats that other tools miss and eliminate false positives:

  • Leverage the knowledge in our Global Threat Intelligence Network to scan traffic metadata and payloads for variants of known threats
  • Apply unsupervised ML to your network traffic to detect protocol and traffic anomalies
  • Use supervised ML to automatically create classifiers that recognize malicious network behaviors and previously unknown exploits

Most AI-based cloud security products implement less accurate techniques. These probabilistic approaches lead to many false positives and hours of follow-up investigation.

Applying AI to network traffic will inevitably detect anomalous patterns of behavior, because that is what it’s designed to do. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible for these other AI-based tools to understand if the detected anomaly is malicious or benign. After all, not all anomalous activity is malicious, and not all malicious activity is anomalous.

Lastline is different. Our solutions utilize AI that is automatically trained both on network traffic and malicious behaviors. This unique combination enables deterministic detections and eliminates false positives. This means more effective enterprise security with fewer resources.

Automate Response

Lastline Defender makes your existing technologies, staff, and processes more effective by being able to integrate with your existing security controls and workflows. You can rely on Lastline Defender’s validated alerts to automate threat response and eliminate time-consuming manual investigations of anomalous activity and potentially malicious files and links in cloud and on-premises traffic:
Deploy Lastline Sensors in blocking mode to stop malicious content and communication, at the perimeter or on internal segments
Integrate Lastline Defender with your third-party products such as SIEM, SOAR, endpoint protection and firewalls, custom applications, and incident response workflows throughout your organization.

Lastline Defender gives you the choice of using built-in integration offered by our technology partners or using our robust APIs. Your existing security controls can automatically send unknown objects for analysis and receive actionable threat intelligence in return, before a threat can disrupt your business.

Secure Your Workloads

To prevent data exfiltration, you need the ability to see both the initial stages of an attack on an asset in your public cloud and the subsequent lateral movement as the attack spreads. Lastline Defender delivers critical visibility by giving you the option to deploy the Lastline Sensor in a range of use cases for comprehensive threat detection and response:

  • Ingress Routing (AWS): Delivers in-line full packet (DPI) visibility into any malicious content in the ingress/egress (“north/south”) traffic between the Internet and your cloud workloads.
  • VPC Traffic Mirroring (AWS): Inspects traffic between VPCs (“east/west”) as well as within a VPC for malicious content.
  • VPC Flow Log Analysis (AWS): Analyzes VPC flows for network anomalies, connection anomalies, and data transfer anomalies.
  • VNet Analysis (Azure): Delivers in-line full packet (DPI) visibility into any malicious content in the ingress/egress (“north/south”) traffic between the Internet and your cloud workloads, as well as traffic within the VNet (“east/west”) for network anomalies, connection anomalies, and data transfer anomalies.
