AlgoSec acquires Prevasio to disrupt the agentless cloud security market

Yuval Baron, Chief Executive Officer at AlgoSec

AlgoSec, a cybersecurity securing app connectivity firm, has acquired Prevasio, a SaaS cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) that includes an agentless cloud security posture management (CSPM) platform, anti-malware scan, vulnerability assessment and dynamic analysis for containers. Prevasio’s user-friendly, cost-effective SaaS solution is designed for hardening security posture across all cloud assets, including containers.

The solution provides increased visibility into security issues and compliance gaps, enabling the cloud operations and security teams to prioritize risks and comply with CIS benchmarks.

What does the acquisition mean for security teams?

Today, as applications rapidly migrate to the Cloud, global security teams are being flooded with alerts. These security teams are struggling to detect and prioritize risks through Cloud providers’ native security controls, especially in multi-cloud environments. Furthermore, security teams are hard-pressed to find solutions that meet their budgetary restrictions.

AlgoSec will thus offer the Prevasio solution at aggressive pricing to new clients, as well as the existing 1,800 blue chip enterprises they serve, allowing them to reduce their cloud security costs. Prevasio clients have successfully reduced administration time and achieved operational cost reductions, even across small teams, within days of operationalization.

“Apps are the lifeblood of firms. As such, our clients have an urgent need to effectively secure the connectivity of those apps across cloud and hybrid estates to avoid unpleasant surprises. With Prevasio, organizations can now confidently secure their cloud-native applications to increase organizational agility and harden security posture,” said Yuval Baron, AlgoSec CEO.

What is the product offering of Prevasio?
