With a large number of Linux-based systems in their primary public cloud, AWS, the corporate headquarters of this popular, quick-service restaurant chain needed visibility into its cloud workloads. The problem was that every existing cloud endpoint security tool for that space was “just kind of lackluster,” as Eric T., Incident Response and Security Operations Manager for the company, said. The sensors weren’t able to provide sufficient context alongside security alerts, nor were they able to tie into an Amazon account and pull information about all instances.
He needed a solution capable of providing alerts with context that enabled him to act swiftly and confidently to protect the organization.
Already a customer, Red Canary had long ago earned their trust, Eric said. He spent much time talking with Joren McReynolds, GM of CWP, and team to get a better understanding of what Red Canary was trying to build. Through these early conversations, it became clear that Red Canary was building what Eric had wished every other Linux agent would do—an effective but lightweight solution for gaining visibility into cloud workloads.
