Verizon's Cloud Security Solutions

The benefits of cloud computing continue to improve the efficiency and flexibility of daily business operations. Its flexibility enables companies to meet the demands of today’s digitally connected world. However, when you drive virtualized data into cloud environments, corporate IT loses much of its original oversight and control. This opens the door to motivated attackers seeking to exploit weak points in your cloud security.

Our Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center (VTRAC) analysts process more than 1 million security events every day at our global network operations centers and security operations centers. We’ve learned a thing or two about how to address and mitigate attacks on cloud-based systems. We’ve taken what we know and created cloud security solutions to help enterprises stay protected while enjoying all the benefits that cloud services offer.  

Challenge: “I have many applications from different vendors on separate clouds. How do I make sure they stay secure?”

Secure Cloud Interconnect connects your multiple clouds, securely and more reliably. It connects you to our global ecosystem of leading Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) via our Verizon Private IP Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based VPN network. Your connections stay separate from the public internet, giving you visibility and control over each of your workloads. With pre-provisioned access to cloud resources, you can deploy new services in days, not weeks. Get truly scalable bandwidth and pay only for what you need.

Challenge: “I need to enforce compliance across my organization and provide secure access to cloud resources. Is there a way to guide all internet access through one entry point?”

Secure Cloud Gateway is a cloud security solution that delivers a secure, cloud-based, distributed web gateway service. It protects users, apps and data on any device, while maintaining performance and eliminating the need to backhaul traffic. It acts as both a first and last line of defense, defending complex and decentralized networks, branch offices, and the remote and mobile users that depend on them.

Secure Cloud Gateway allows organizations to transition to the cloud smoothly and at their own pace, without the need to re-architect existing networks. It not only inspects internet data as it enters an organization, but it can also inspect internet data as it leaves an organization, preventing data loss. It also supports HIPAA compliance and CIPA-compliance to help you meet data privacy and protection policies and regulations.

Challenge: “I store data in on-premise infrastructure and in the cloud. How can I enforce security policies and protect sensitive data across all my environments?”

A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) acts as the gatekeeper between your on-premise and public cloud infrastructure, helping you address cloud service risks, enforce security policies, and comply with regulations. We team with CASB vendor Netskope to give you the critical tools to help prevent, discover, and respond to threats. By using a CASB, you can better tackle the blind spots that trip up so many businesses. This includes identifying high-risk applications and users, and helping you mitigate other key risk factors across cloud platforms.

Challenge: “I’m concerned about malware, phishing, and ransomware attacks that could damage our reputation and bottom line. How can I meet these threats head on?”

DNS Safeguard acts as a firewall to block access to malicious websites. This cloud-based system reviews every DNS request to identify its origin and either route the traffic to the appropriate location or block it if it’s malicious. By enforcing security at the DNS layer, you can block unsafe destinations before a connection is ever made.

In addition, VTRAC analysts provide continuous updates, integrating our threat feeds with Cisco® intelligence, which analyzes terabytes of data in near real-time across various markets, geographies, and protocols. Get deep visibility into where the threats come from, where they call back to, how widespread they are, when they were first and last seen, and much more.

Challenge: “I keep hearing about more organizations becoming victims of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. What can I do to avoid getting attacked?”

Verizon DDoS Shield is a highly scalable, cloud-based DDoS mitigation service that gives you the intelligence to help distinguish good traffic from bad traffic. We continuously scan the traffic on our worldwide IP network for irregular patterns. When under attack, your inbound traffic is redirected to Verizon scrubbing centers so that you receive clean, legitimate traffic to your network. DDoS Shield leverages the Verizon Digital Media Service infrastructure, offering you an ever-expanding DDoS mitigation capacity against large-scale attacks.

Challenge: “My IT department has worked hard to keep our organization secure, but how do I know we still don’t have undetected vulnerabilities?”

The Verizon Risk Report is a customized risk assessment tool that measures and benchmarks your security posture. We use quantified scoring algorithms, detailed dark web findings, and proprietary data from our threat intelligence library to give you a 360-degree view of your entire security landscape. We integrate our intelligence with security data sources so you can aggregate, display, and score information in a way that’s easy to understand. Use the data to identify security gaps and evaluate where you need to focus your IT security efforts.

Challenge: “My IT department says they need more visibility about our security posture, but our current monitoring protocols just can’t keep up.”

Network Detection and Response is a cloud-delivered network security platform that provides actionable intelligence, including a correlated view of threats, and packet-level forensic capabilities to speed incident response and threat hunting. This provides security teams with the visibility they need to take action against current threats and spot future threats with speed, accuracy, and scale. Network Detection and Response unifies network detection, full-packet forensics and integrated response in an on-demand platform for any environment — enterprise, cloud, industrial, IoT, or 5G.

How Verizon can help

With Verizon, you can trust us to protect your network the same way we protect our own. That's why we monitor more than 61 billion security events each year (on average). See how D-Link Corporation used Secure Cloud Interconnect to get secure access to AWS Direct Connect and maintain the ability to scale bandwidth.

Let’s work together to find the right combination of cloud security solutions to meet your needs.
