What is Machine State Integrity?
Verizon Machine State Integrity is a managed security solution that captures concise machine state information and continuously monitoring the machines in your environment, significantly facilitating and reducing time to threat detection. It accurately identifies, analyzes and flags changes to help you control risk.
Boost security with blockchain technology.
Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and decentralized IT environments have expanded the cyberattack surface. How can you quickly and reliably determine if your cloud images, servers, routers, switches, gateways and IoT endpoints remain secure?
Machine State Integrity offers a new way for enterprises to secure and monitor their network edges. Taking advantage of blockchain technology, Machine State Integrity enables you to detect and validate the true state of all your machines in near real time, at scale and with confidence.
How does Machine State Integrity work?
The solution creates an immutable, fully verifiable chain of events based on machine state rather than logs. It collects and secures events at the source with reliable hash technology, resulting in a small footprint. Trust ledgers are hosted on Verizon’s proven global infrastructure for best in class protection.
Enabling trusted cloud service
Verizon Machine State Integrity can integrate with and monitor cloud service provider environments. Blockchain-enabled devices have a trust anchor that can be used to judge any future changes. Unauthorized events go to your security operations center or to the cloud orchestrator.
