Evident.io Helps Enterprises Reduce Complexity of Securing Multicloud Environments with New Support for Microsoft Azure


Pleasanton, CA — September 21, 2017 — Evident.io, the leading provider of public cloud compliance and security solutions, today announced Evident Security Platform (ESP®) support for Microsoft Azure. Combined with support for Amazon Web Services (AWS), ESP provides enterprises automated and continuous visibility and control of their compliance and security across multiple public cloud platforms from a single pane of glass.

Organizations are building and deploying applications and workloads across multicloud environments in order to reduce risk, accommodate preferences of their development and operations teams, and take advantages of the unique strengths offered by different cloud providers. Gartner predicts that a multicloud strategy will become the common strategy for 70% of enterprises by 2019, up from less than 10% today.1 However, moving to a multicloud environment creates operational complexity for security, risk, and compliance teams who need visibility and actionable insights across diverse resources, infrastructures, and compliance and business requirements.

Evident Security Platform provides an actionable view of infrastructure risks and compliance violations across Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services environments from a unified view. By analyzing the configurations of all the services and account settings in the clouds against strict security and compliance controls and prioritizing the risks found, ESP helps cloud practitioners ensure their deployments are secure and achieve a continuous state of cloud compliance.

A free trial of the ESP is available allowing organizations to get an assessment of their cloud security within minutes of signing up.
