Corelight Expands its Product Range with the Launch of New Cloud Sensor

Corelight, a supplier of one of the strongest network security monitoring solutions for cybersecurity, has now widened its product series with the release of the Corelight Cloud Sensor for Amazon Web Services (AWS)—introducing the power of Corelight’s network security monitoring to the cloud.

The Corelight Cloud Sensor for AWS exploits the latest Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) traffic mirroring that enables customers to acquire insight into the network traffic across their AWS environment for threat monitoring and content inspection. Amazon VPC traffic mirroring was introduced earlier at the AWS re:Inforce 2019 in Boston.

The Corelight Cloud Sensor for AWS changes network traffic into extracted files, rich logs, and security insights for more efficient threat hunting, forensics, and incident response. The Corelight Cloud Sensor for AWS analyzes dozens of network protocols and produces rich, actionable data streams that make it more convenient for security teams to spot and respond to possible threats in real time.

Many of our customers are running key workloads on AWS today and want even more network visibility. Today’s launch of Amazon VPC traffic mirroring combined with Corelight’s Sensors provides improved data for security analytics as well as a consistent view for security teams across their cloud and on-premise environments. With the Corelight Cloud Sensor for AWS, our customers can be up and running within 15 minutes ensuring that they never lose sight of their network traffic.

The Amazon VPC traffic mirroring allows customers to capture AWS traffic of interest more easily from any workload in an Amazon VPC and guide it to their Corelight Cloud Sensor to change it into enriched security data for export to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) or streamed to their security analytics, SIEM, or a preferred file analysis tool.

The Corelight Cloud Sensor for AWS can supervise traffic at speeds up to 10 Gbps for traffic logging of over 35 network protocols, and can also create alerts and insights from Corelight’s Core Collection of Zeek scripts. With regards to larger scale environments, multiple sensors can be combined together behind AWS Network Load Balancers and centrally controlled with Corelight Fleet Manager.

The product launch on June 25th follows Corelight Sensor version 17 improvements made earlier this month.


The Corelight Cloud Sensor for AWS is presently available.
