Protego Labs Joins Amazon Web Services Partner Network
Collaboration Expands Serverless Security Solution for AWS
Baltimore, MD – April 3, 2019 – Protego Labs today announced that it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network as an Advanced qualified Technology Partner. The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a global partner program, focused on providing business, technical, marketing and go-to-market support to build successful AWS-based businesses and/or solutions.
“While the number of organizations around the world adopting serverless technologies increases, many are still applying traditional application security methods to their deployments, which simply don’t work in serverless environments,” said Tsion Gonen, CEO and cofounder, Protego Labs. “By joining the APN, more organizations can leverage the Protego platform to strengthen the security of their serverless applications, and realize all the benefits serverless technologies have to offer including quicker time to launch.”
Protego is the first and only platform of its kind that delivers full life-cycle security and behavioral intelligence to serverless applications from deployment to run-time, that can be up and running in 20 minutes. It works by continuously scanning a company’s serverless infrastructure, including tasks, logs, and databases. Using machine-based analysis and deep learning algorithms, Protego builds a model of normal function behavior to effectively detect and mitigate threats, anomalies, and malicious attacks as they initiate and propagate.
Recently, Protego Labs expanded their solution to include support for AWS Fargate. Fargate is a compute engine for Amazon ECS that allows developers to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. Rather than choose instance types, decide when to scale their clusters, or optimize cluster utilization, users define applications as “tasks.” The Protego integration improves how developers think of application security in a cloud-native world by protecting the tasks in the same manner as the function, giving organizations greater visibility and security of their serverless resources. Protego Labs also provides a solution for AWS Lambda.
Protego Labs won the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards for Best Startup and was named a 2019 Company to Watch by SDTimes Magazine, as well as one of Baltimore’s most promising startups on the realLIST2019 by Technical.ly Baltimore. In 2018, the company won an Innovator Award from SC Magazine, received Frost & Sullivan’s Global New Product Innovation Award, and won the Startup Competition for the most innovative cyber initiative at the CyberTech Tel Aviv Conference.
