Herndon, VA — (January 3, 2017) DLT Solutions (DLT), an award-winning public sector technology company, and Evident.io, a leading provider of cloud infrastructure security and compliance automation, announced a partnership focused on making it easier for government agencies to secure their cloud environments via the Evident Security Platform.

The Evident Security Platform (ESPâ) provides the ability to assess risks within an Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment and continuously monitors cloud infrastructure to automatically identify and assess security misconfigurations, thus making remediating the issues easy. ESP gathers AWS API metadata from an agency’s environment via Amazon API’s. This data is then input into the ESP risk analysis engine which generates a detailed assessment of the security risks, misconfigurations and vulnerabilities it detects.

“As our AWS federal, state and local government, and higher education customers move both basic and more critical workloads to the cloud, they require security, compliance and automation for their environments,” said Gary Danoff, senior vice president of cloud solutions at DLT. “Through our partnership with Evident.io we help our clients fulfill their portion of the AWS shared responsibility security model.”

The Evident Security Platform (ESP) also provides:

  • Continuous Security and Compliance Reporting: Delivers complete security and compliance monitoring for an entire AWS environment – all services, all regions, and all accounts -- and delivers a real-time compliance assessment with simple, one-button compliance reports. 
  • Customizable Dashboards: Actionable views into AWS infrastructure risks by team, region, severity, status, signature, or timeframe.
  • Detailed Report of Every Risk: Detailed information about the risk including user attribution, affected resources, and teams, and see all the available alert detail including a code snippet that describes the exact problem.
  • Guided Remediation: Easy-to-follow guided remediation steps to get infrastructure back to a secure state.

“We are excited to partner with DLT to support the cybersecurity needs of public sector cloud customers,” said Justin Lundy, CTO and co-founder at Evident.io. “Organizations that move to Public Clouds to support their missions can’t ignore the need for security and compliance best practices that have been designed to support this new ecosystem. Traditional data center tools and procedures were simply not designed for today’s API-centric cloud.”
