Dome9 Debuts Security Visualization for AWS CloudFormation Templates
New console enhancement enables design-phase analysis and remediation of network security issues 

Menlo Park, CA – June 25, 2015 Dome9 Security, a leader in cloud security, today announced that the Dome9 Clarity Visualization console within Dome9 SecOps now supports Amazon Web Services (AWS) CloudFormation templates, allowing customers to visually display network security topologies. This capability allows enterprises utilizing AWS CloudFormation to integrate advanced discovery and remediation of network security issues and misconfigurations into the template design phase.

Security administrators can now highlight potential vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations before actually deploying the application stack to production, thereby enabling a more secure posture.

Dome9 Clarity Visualization enables customers to visualize AWS security policies, by intuitively mapping network traffic sources, security groups, instances and traffic flow possibilities. Dome9 customers can now upload their AWS CloudFormation templates into Clarity and visually pre-evaluate them from a security perspective before the environment is provisioned in production. Dome9’s new innovation now allows cloud security administrators to be even more responsive and agile compared to their operations counterparts.

“A lot of the F100 enterprises that we work with, including large financials and big tech companies, rely on AWS CloudFormation for design and configuration of their AWS network,” said Charles Radi, VP Security and Governance Practice Lead at Cloud Technology Partners, an AWS Advanced Consulting and Technology Partner. “We see this feature as one that will transform day-to-day security operations inside these organizations. In fact, I have not seen another product that can redefine the security operations experience on AWS like Dome9 SecOps.”

“As a purpose-built security solution for the AWS Cloud, Dome9 SecOps with Clarity Visualization has been used by hundreds of Dome9 customers as a way to immediately visualize the security aspects of production AWS environments,” said Zohar Alon, CEO of Dome9 Security. “This new innovation now enables us to extend that benefit to the design phase of network security operations. Customers can further leverage the investment they have made on AWS CloudFormation by utilizing Dome9 to gain a visual understanding of where potential vulnerabilities may exist, and to take immediate action.”

Dome9’s Clarity Visualization console for AWS CloudFormation is included as part of Dome9 SecOps at no additional charge and is available immediately (AWS usage fees apply). To schedule a live demo or to start a trial, visit
