Blue Hexagon Debuts World’s First Unified Harden & Defend Platform For Multi-Cloud Security

Blue Hexagon, a leading agentless cloud-native AI platform, today announced the world’s first unified harden and defend multi-cloud security platform that combines two cloud security pillars – harden and defend – into a single platform designed to reduce DevSecOps friction, catch threats and misconfigurations early via deep learning, and improve compliance.

Blue Hexagon’s Cloud Security Platform allows customers to both harden their cloud – including cloud visibility, cloud compliance, and misconfiguration detection – and detect active threats – for workload, storage and network threats – without relying on outdated signatures, IOCs and threat intelligence feeds. Blue Hexagon connects directly to a customer’s cloud infrastructure in an agentless manner in minutes using Cloud Service Provider (CSP) native APIs to collect raw data from cloud resources in every region, account, configuration, control-plane activity, network activity, serverless packages and containers pushed to repositories. This raw data is analyzed by the Blue Hexagon platform using proprietary deep learning models to detect malware, command and control, beaconing, and behavior analytics to uncover unusual patterns in the cloud control plane and data plane.

Hardening Outcomes: Blue Hexagon provides visibility into asset inventory and cloud activity, detects several hundred misconfigurations in more than 100 different services across AWS, Azure, GCP and OCI and aids in compliance with multiple standards like CIS, HIPAA and PCI. Blue Hexagon provides coverage for 12 out of the 20 CIS-recommended controls.

Threat Defense Outcomes: Blue Hexagon provides sub-second identification of both known and unknown threats with near 100 percent accuracy, and natively works with cloud infrastructure for visibility and enforcement. By applying deep learning to network traffic, storage activity and workloads, Blue Hexagon is able to identify both known and unknown threats with greater than 99 percent accuracy in network traffic, container/K8S workloads and cloud storage, usually in less than a second.

Blue Hexagon provides actionable security visibility with network, workload and storage as well as user and entity insights. The solution also helps achieve continuous compliance including misconfigurations and cloud intrusion detection. Blue Hexagon is trusted by leading healthcare, e-commerce, insurance and financial services companies and has received positive feedback from many customers including Prime Communications and Pacific Dental Services.

Blue Hexagon has been recognized in Forbes AI 50 for Next Gen NDR innovation, included in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Network Detection and Response, named to CNBC’s Upstart 100 list of “World’s Most Promising Startups,” was tested by Miercom as the most effective of four leading security products against the most lethal zero-day malware, ransomware, worms, botnets and evasive malicious threats and was named to the 2021 CB Insights AI-100 list of “Most Innovative Artificial Intelligence Startups,” CRN’s “10 Hottest AI Security Companies You Need to Know,” Analytics Insights “Top 100 Artificial Intelligence Startups to Lookout for in 2021.” The company recently won several 2022 industry awards for cloud security including the Silver Globee Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards for Hot Security Technology of the Year for Artificial Intelligence in Security.
