- Thanks to a single user interface and data model, customers can meet compliance requirements, reduce risk, and prioritize responses to threats, vulnerabilities, and misconfigurations with Uptycs.
- The improved threat detection and response capabilities are especially beneficial for security analysts who are examining the seriousness and scope of an alert for incident response.
Uptycs Inc., a startup in cloud and endpoint cybersecurity, recently unveiled what it calls the first “early warning system” that enables security teams to spot and stop threat actors before they gain access to cloud data and services.
The platform from Uptycs now has the capacity to gather and examine GitHub audit logs and user identity data from Okta Inc. and Azure Active Directory. This platform already provided unified cloud-native application protection and extended detection and response. As a developer moves code into production and out of repositories, the platform looks for any suspicious activity. By doing this, security teams can locate and thwart threat actors before they have a chance to access cloud data and services.
Customers of Uptycs can now track and analyze malicious activity across various attack surfaces from a single user interface as a result of the new release. Along with its current tracking support for endpoints, containers, control plane for cloud, and Kubernetes, support for GitHub and identity services have been added.
According to Uptycs, the inclusion of identity provider support connects activity from logged-in developer accounts. The improved threat detection and response capabilities are especially beneficial for security analysts who are examining the seriousness and scope of an alert for incident response.
Co-founder and CEO of Uptycs, Ganesh Pai, said in a statement, “Recent high-profile data breaches, such as LastPass and CircleCI, highlight the need to detect threat actors earlier in the kill chain before they move from a developer’s laptop into crown jewel data and services. This means giving security teams the ability to track threat activity across developer machines, source code repositories, identity providers, and cloud infrastructure.”
When Uptycs announced improved Kubernetes and contain security capabilities in October, that was the last time it made headlines. Uptycs, a startup backed by venture capital, raised money most recently in 2021. Founder Collective Management Co. LLC, Comcast Ventures LLC, Norwest Venture Partners LP, Sapphire Ventures LLC, Forgepoint Capital LP, and Gencast Ventures LP are a few of the company’s investors.
