SAN FRANCISCO, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Evident.io is pleased to announce general availability of its new Evident Security Platform (ESP) for AWS. ESP for AWS is a Security-as-a-Service offering that provides continuous security monitoring and remediation guidance for Amazon Web Services. ESP enables effective, continuous risk management for cloud infrastructures of all sizes -- startups, SMBs, enterprises, and government organizations.

The Evident Security Platform automates AWS infrastructure security operations. ESP for AWS can be activated in minutes and learns about customer's cloud infrastructures through Amazon's AWS API. ESP then scans for nearly 100 critical AWS security risks and vulnerabilities and assembles this data onto an intuitive dashboard. Security personnel can then click through high severity security issues and receive comprehensive instructions on how to remediate these problems. ESP enables cloud security personnel to quickly scan through even the largest AWS infrastructures and resolve security problems in minutes - not weeks or month after they are introduced.

"My cofounder, Justin Lundy, and I spent 3 years successfully defending one of the largest infrastructures on Amazon Web Services. We spent many long days, nights and weekends learning about the intricacies of AWS's powerful security mechanisms, constantly striving to exceed industry best practices and security standards." said Tim Prendergast, Chief Executive Officer, Evident.io. "As a result of our hard work, the products built on that infrastructure have been a breakout success that has continued to grow as one of the world's largest and most secure AWS infrastructures."

"Tim and I decided to store our many years of AWS security experience into a cloud service that other AWS customers could take advantage of. However, developing a new security platform designed with the cloud first was a big challenge. The vast majority of solutions we had used and evaluated for AWS cloud security initiatives did not meet our needs, so we set out to build a next generation platform." said Justin Lundy, Chief Technology Officer, Evident.io. "In many leading technology companies today, AWS and other cloud deployments are continuous and they need a tool that works well with that paradigm."
