Denver, Colorado. – October 27, 2020 – Red Canary, a leading provider of security operations solutions, announced the launch of Red Canary Cloud Workload Protection, a cloud workload protection (CWP) solution that provides visibility and threat detection for security and DevOps teams.

Key Quote(s):

Joren McReynolds, General Manager for CWP, Red Canary
“Most businesses don’t have an effective solution in place to identify compromises or adversary activity in their cloud environments. Great advances have been made in preventive controls and risk identification, but little traction has been made in threat detection outcomes. The market is ready for a product focused on this core area that will deliver exceptional results.”

Zachary Braun, Senior Manager of Security Operations and NOC, Ionic Security
“Ionic Security has a large, fast moving, and diverse cloud environment that has challenged existing security toolsets. Having used Red Canary’s CWP product for over a year now, we can happily say that CWP supports our diverse configurations with minimal performance impact, and it’s supported by the same passionate and knowledgeable resources behind all of Red Canary’s offerings.”
