Caveonix now enables managed service providers (MSPs) and MSSPs to offer its RiskForesight cyber risk and compliance management platform to VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers, according to a prepared statement.

RiskForesight is a multi-tenant cyber risk and compliance management platform for the hybrid cloud, Caveonix noted. It leverages predictive analytics and machine learning to build IT, cyber and compliance risk mitigation models and empowers MSPs and MSSPs to deliver security, network, compliance and policy enforcement across cloud-based workloads.
