Periodically, we turn over control of the CenturyLink Cloud blog to members of our certified technology ecosystem to share how they leverage our platform to enable customer success. This week’s guest author from the Cloud Marketplace Provider Program is Tim Thompson of security and compliance provider Cavirin.

Cavirin ARAPNo business wants to be exposed to risk, fail an audit, or get breached. We can help. With Cavirin’s Automated Risk Analysis Platform (ARAP), now integrated within the CenturyLink Platform, you can elevate your security posture and add an extra layer of transparency and visibility in your cloud ecosystem, without any additional security staff or heavyweight security tools.

Strengthen your cloud infrastructure without sacrificing security or compliance.

ARAP can help strengthen your infrastructure by continuously monitoring your CenturyLink Public Cloud environment as well as on-premise environment -- seeking out configuration changes as well as new devices and grading the associated risk based on security and compliance guidelines that you apply. Our platform paints a clear picture of the risk within your dynamic IT ecosystem, so that you stay proactive, well ahead of potential risks to security or gaps in compliance.

ARAP is agentless and automated, which means cost and time savings for you.

To us, automation is just as important as risk management. That is why our unique multi-faceted platform provides continuous security and compliance through automated monitoring, analysis, and reporting. You don’t need an army of security analysts to perform manual checks and sift through the latest industry standards and policies. Our powerful policy engine can help you stay in compliance with dozens of industry regulations, frameworks, and/or best practices like PCI, HIPAA, ISO, NIST, CIS and more.


  • Continuous Analysis: Complete transparency of IT risk in your environment. ARAP is a unique, agentless discovery engine that continuously catalogs and analyzes your devices no matter where they reside -- cloud or on-premises, known or unknown.
  • Automated Audit Compliance: Apply dozens of out-of-the-box security and compliance guidelines, such as NIST, CIS, ISO, HIPAA and PCI, based on your specific industry requirements. We also have automated the PCI audit process with a report that you can share with your auditor.
  • Scorecards and Reports: A balanced scorecard approach to identifying assets, calculating their risk to the business, and prescribing fixes.
  • Cost Avoidance: Agentless and automated. Avoid paying $120K for a security analyst and protect your business on a budget.
