Halo architecture & integrations

Halo’s unique architecture enables fast and efficient security automation & orchestration of servers and cloud workloads, anywhere, at any scale.

How Halo is different

Traditional Products


Traditional security systems are slow to deploy. They require change control tickets and manual configuration. They can’t keep pace with rapid server provisioning that is characteristic of cloud environments and DevOps processes.
Halo is fast. Installation of agents is totally automated. Halo integrates with DevOps tools such as Chef, Puppet, Salt, Ansible, and Jenkins. If workloads move or IP addresses change, Halo automatically follows the workload.
Designed for a single environment. Data center products built on proprietary architectures do not work in public cloud environments, and vice versa.
Halo is portable. Halo works with equal efficiency in any environment—data center, private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud.
Traditional security agents are large and consume a lot of CPU on your servers and cloud instances. You wind up paying for more cloud resources in order to secure your cloud resources.
Halo agents are extremely lightweight. All security analytics are done on CloudPassage’s servers, instead of your servers and cloud workloads.
Single function products each focused on network security, workload protection, compromise detection, etc, make you acquire an arsenal of tools.
Halo is comprehensive. It includes a broad range of security controls at both the host and network levels. You can replace multiple traditional security products with Halo.
On-premise security systems require effort to scale. As your number of workloads increases, you need to purchase and install more gear.
Halo is scalable instantly, on-demand. Our customers routinely scale Halo to over 10,000 workloads in just a few days.

“The old adage was ‘You can go fast, or you can be secure.' With Halo, we can be both fast and secure.”
