Cloud Native Security Leader Deepfence achieves Microsoft IP Co-Sell Ready Partner Status

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As a part of its singular focus to be the one-stop security platform for the continuum of cloud-native workloads, Deepfence is pleased to announce that it is now a Microsoft IP Co-Sell Partner. Through the Microsoft Partner Program, Deepfence would now be directly sold and marketed by Microsoft resellers around the world, thereby providing unprecedented levels of security for customer's application workloads on Microsoft Azure Cloud.

As the first and only security solution across the entire spectrum of Microsoft Azure flavours-- Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Virtual Machines (VM's), and Azure Container Instances (ACI), Deepfence is a distributed intrusion prevention and active response platform that is deployed alongside customer workloads and protects them from complex multi-vector multi-stage attacks in real-time. A beta version of the Deepfence platform is also available that provides the same level of protection for customer workloads on Windows platforms, including Windows containers on Kubernetes as well as Windows virtual machines.

"It is a privilege to be among the select group of solutions chosen by Microsoft for joint sales, packaged solutions and expansive deployment," said Shyam Krishnaswamy, Co-Founder and VP Products, of Deepfence. "As customers move their on-premise workloads to Microsoft Azure Cloud, ensuring the security of those workloads is their utmost concern. Since we are now Microsoft Co-Sell Ready, a large number of Azure partners and customers can now use the Deepfence platform as their only security solution."

Sajan Parihar, Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp said, "We're excited to welcome Deepfence to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from global trusted partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure."

When compared to other offerings, Deepfence monitors more than 70+ runtime signals, 50+ sources of vulnerabilities, and 1000+ compliance policies. This is achieved without using inline proxies or intrusive agents, which enables Deepfence to function seamlessly in the presence of service meshes like Istio. The powerful and proprietary Deep-Packet Inspection (DPI) engine analyses plain-text and encrypted traffic across North-South and East-West boundaries, without adding additional latencies to data path. The patent pending "Semantic Patching" technique puts all this together using sophisticated AI algorithms; to illuminate blind spots, detect even the most complex attacks across the entire infrastructure, and mitigate threats, all in real-time.
