The 10 Hottest New Cloud Security Tools Of 2020

Michael Novinson

The 10 top cloud security products to hit the market in 2020 can detect improper configurations, assess the risk around users seeking access to a cloud resource, and protect workloads in virtualized, private and hybrid environments.

Zix Secure Cloud

Zix combined the security and compliance offering from its 2019 acquisition of AppRiver with its own in April to create a single platform that safeguards digital communication tools. The company said it spent $20 million to develop Secure Cloud, which vastly improves upon a loose integration rolled out in July 2019 to make Zix’s intellectual property available to AppRiver partners.

A lot of work has been done at the application level to improve Secure Cloud’s advanced threat capabilities touching upon everything from sandboxing and messaging protection to integrations with SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) platforms. Up until now, Zix’s technology was mostly focused on protecting against phishing, malware and business email compromise (BEC) attacks.

Another new security feature with Secure Cloud is time of link click protection, meaning that a destination link in an email is scanned at the time the link is clicked to ensure there’s not malware on the site even if the email itself is from weeks or months earlier. Secure Cloud can also quarantine and remove a malicious attachment sent to multiple mailboxes in one fell swoop, according to the company.
