Morphisec Achieves AWS Security Competency Status for Cloud Server Workload Protection

BE'ER SHEVA, Israel and BOSTON, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Morphisec, a leader in Moving Target Defense, today announced that the company has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency status for its Unified Threat Prevention Platform that is now installed across four million endpoints. Organizations of virtually all sizes are turning to Morphisec to add an additional layer of protection to their AWS workloads as they transfer more of their ongoing operations into the cloud.

Morphisec's innovative Unified Threat Prevention Platform is designed to quickly and deterministically prevent advanced threats, offering a simpler and more secure cloud server protection alternative to costly and complex Endpoint Detection and Response tools. Achieving the AWS Security Competency differentiates Morphisec as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

"Cloud server workloads are being increasingly targeted by sophisticated adversaries," said Andrew Homer, VP of Business Development at Morphisec. "Whitelisting application controls are not enough to protect servers. Infiltration and exploitation techniques utilized by adversaries have one thing in common--to evade detection and move laterally in order to inflict maximum damage. Our in-memory protection platform kills zero-day attacks pre-execution across server, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and endpoints without requiring heavy detection or scanning. Morphisec's Security Center dashboard provides deep visibility across the attack chain, whether those servers exist in the cloud, virtual, or a hybrid environment."

Moving Target Defense changes the game back to the defender by making prevention the centerpiece and making critical memory resources inaccessible. Morphisec's unique approach can now add an additional layer of security for AWS cloud workloads from unknown attacks at day zero. Morphisec adds a dedicated in-memory defense layer to secure an enterprise's entire cloud workload.

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify APN Consulting and Technology Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
