Avocado Systems Awarded Five Patents for Innovative East-West Threat Detection and Elimination

Avocado Systems Awarded Five Patents for Innovative East-West Threat Detection and Elimination

Enabling Uniform Deterministic Security and Pico-Segmentation for Any Application, Any Architecture, Any Platform, and Any Cloud.

Milpitas, Calif., June 4, 2019 – Avocado announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has awarded them with five new technology patents for its deterministic cloud security platform. These patents empower Avocado Security Platform with advanced, deterministic methods of runtime cyber threat identification and elimination. This recognition also enables Avocado to¬ help enterprises secure their applications and databases from cyber-attacks from within as well as from internet-based threats. These innovations outperform all traditional east-west security products, lowering overhead costs while making application and database security high-performing and highly scalable.

“Monitoring and eliminating threats with complete visibility into complex applications is critical for our Security Operations Centers (SOCs). Avocado Systems’ pico-segmentation method provides this visibility and security with ease of integration.” said Alfred Grasso, former CEO and President of MITRE.

Patents Awarded

  • US9952790B2 – Application security policy based on security profile exchange
  • US10148697B2 – Unified host-based security exchange between heterogeneous end point security agents
  • US10193930B2 – Application security capability exchange via the application and data protection layer
  • US10193889B2 – Data socket descriptor attributes for application discovery in data centers
  • US10270810B2 – Data socket descriptor-based policies for application and data behavior and security

Key Takeaways

Application Security via the Application and Data Protection Layer (ADPL)

Segmentation is only as strong as its weakest link. This patented ADPL technology applies robust, dynamic security to all enterprise environments by securing applications at the deepest level possible. This security is embedded into the application itself, meaning agentless, ultra-high-performance security across any platform. Learn More

Data Socket Descriptor Attributes for Application Discovery

Granularity is often sacrificed for easy installation, which means less visibility into applications and more ways for attackers to sideline your policies. By automating the process of application discovery, Avocado Systems dynamically employs security on every server, application, thread, user, and communication happening both inside and outside any system. Learn More

Application and Data Protection Tagging

Agents are slow and inelastic. Avocado enables dynamic, scaling security by embedding plugins into applications as they’re launched. Streamline deployment, cloud migration, and containerization without sacrificing security. Learn More

“Enterprises have long suffered from threats inside their environments, moving laterally while performing attacks and stealing data,” said Keshav Kamble, co-founder and CTO of Avocado. “Big or small, enterprise security professionals deserve strong ammunition to monitor, intercept and mitigate threats the moment they touch down inside the data center or cloud. We are passionate about enabling those capabilities with zero-interaction methods, allowing rapid, secure application scaling without adding any human, managerial, or even performance costs.”

Avocado Security Platform for Oracle Cloud Now Available in Oracle Cloud Marketplace

Oracle Cloud Customers Can Use Avocado Security Platform to Help Secure and Segment Their Applications and Help Ensure Compliance

The Avocado Security Platform provides Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers with added security protection for their applications from attacks like zero-day, SQL-injections, malware and Persistent Threats (APTs). Avocado’s dynamic application segmentation stops the lateral movement of threats which evade perimeter security and get inside the network to directly attack web, app and database tiers. Automated compliance helps ensure that customers’ applications meet compliance requirements without creating an overwhelming number of rules and policies. By using Avocado Security Platform, security functions such as Next-Generation Firewall, IDS, IPS are built-into the applications and provides distributed and scale-out security rather than appliance-based approaches…

Avocado Systems’ Game-Changer Solution vRASP Simplifies “East-West” Application Security and Reduces Costs by up to 79 Percent

vRASP™ Now Ready to Disrupt and Displace Existing East-West (Server-to-Server) Security Infrastructures in Data Centers and Clouds

Avocado Systems, the Silicon Valley innovator of next-gen application security for data centers and clouds, issued an outlook today — asserting that conventional cloud and data center security is set for major upheaval as a new breed of Runtime Application Self-Protection – aka RASP – becomes widely adopted.
“North-South traffic is the communication that occurs between server applications and their Internet-based client applications,” explains Avocado Systems CTO Keshav Kamble, holder of more than 150 patents in security, networking, virtualization and Hadoop. “East-West communication, on the other hand, represents the lion’s share of up to 80 percent of traffic generated by various application instances within data centers or clouds. The resulting attack surface and vulnerabilities require complex infrastructures, and a seemingly never-ending sprawl of expensive security appliances and services – to secure and scale enterprise applications.”…

Avocado Systems Introduces New Game-Changer Solution for Application Security

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) OCTOBER 19, 2016 – Applications in data center and cloud environments have become the target of choice for Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and other emerging cyber-attacks.

Avocado Systems, the Silicon Valley innovator of next-gen application security for data centers and clouds, introduced today its new approach to “deterministic” Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP).

“Applications in data center and cloud environments have become the target of choice for Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and other emerging cyber-attacks,” said Avocado Systems CEO and Co-founder Shailesh Naik. “Behind the perimeter firewall, the rapidly growing base of applications and their data are easy marks for cyber criminals. This makes current application security solutions the weakest link. The sheer magnitude of risk and breach statistics — combined with the intense scrutiny and pressure organizations face today — calls for a new and more solid approach.”
