MetricStream enhances AWS cloud security with CyberGRC

MetricStream has announced the MetricStream CyberGRC that works with AWS Security Hub to provide continuous control monitoring (CCM) for enhanced cloud protection.

With this integration, organisations can access near real-time cloud security control tests that identify issues requiring attention. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) will then have the visibility to respond to vulnerabilities proactively.

CCM is to the use of automated tools and technologies to continuously test and monitor the effectiveness of security controls in line with compliance standards such as NIST and ISO 27001.

AWS Security Hub performs security best practice checks, aggregates alerts, and enables automated remediation. Combined with MetricStream’s always-on CCM, CISOs can ensure ongoing compliance of cloud assets to standards, with minimal user intervention.

“Speed and visibility are critical to proactively fending off cyber attacks. Organisations are looking to innovate quickly on the cloud and risk-based security is more critical than ever before. With real-time, actionable insights and analysis, customers can strengthen their cyber security controls and take an aggressive stance against risks,” said Prasad Sabbineni, Co-CEO of MetricStream.
