AWS and Azure cloud-based applications and workflows - which encompass a wide range of services and data storage options - present a lucrative target for attackers. From compute to  storage instances, these environments contain critical infrastructure and sensitive data, making them highly attractive for cyber threats. A managed detection and response service is essential, offering specialized protection for AWS and Azure environments. It ensures comprehensive defense against sophisticated cyber attacks, safeguarding your cloud assets and workflows with advanced detection, vigilant monitoring, and rapid response capabilities tailored to the unique challenges of your cloud ecosystem.

Cloud Detection and Response  (CDR)

Cloud Detection and Response (CDR) is a specialized security service that focuses on identifying and mitigating threats specific to cloud infrastructure, such as public, private, and hybrid clouds.

CDR combines advanced monitoring, threat detection, and response strategies to protect cloud assets like servers, storage, and applications. Utilizing cloud-native integrations and tools, it ensures real-time surveillance and analysis of cloud traffic and activities. This approach enables swift identification of suspicious behaviors and potential breaches, facilitating immediate and effective responses.

Currently, we support CDR for AWS and/or Azure applications and workloads.

How a Managed
CDR service
from Gradient Cyber
adds Value

Gradient Cyber's Managed CDR service enhances your AWS and/or Azure cloud security by utilizing our proprietary analytics, platform, and expert Cyber Analyst team. Our XDR platform undergoes a learning phase to recognize and alert on deviations from normal cloud application behavior.

This enables our Managed CDR service to detect complex, hidden attacks that standard signature-based tools might miss. It spots atypical communication trends, significantly bolstering advanced threat detection and proactive threat hunting, thereby adding substantial value to your cloud security posture.

What Our Managed CDR Service Includes

Monitoring of all CloudWatch and CloudTrail, VPC Flow Logs, Amazon Inspector, AWS Lambda Logs, and Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) Access Logs.


Our Cyber Analyst staff use the Gradient Cyber XDR Platform to analyze, contextualize and prioritize all AWS  alerts.


Alerts that require action are documented in a Situation Report (SitRep) which details incident root cause, contextual analysis findings, and recommended or auto-invoked response action(s).


Gradient Cyber can enhance your cloud security through threat protection and advice on specific security configuration settings for your applications and workflows.
