BigID | March 17, 2023
BigID, the leading platform for data security, compliance, privacy, and governance, today introduced purpose-built AI and ML-based data discovery and classification capabilities designed to quickly and easily detect secrets across enterprise data and reduce risk from potential data breaches and leaks.
Secrets - including as API keys, tokens, usernames and passwords, and security certificates - are commonly shared, cloned, and distributed across enterprise data environments as a means for better collaboration and efficiency. Unfortunately, the proliferation of secrets across these environments increases the attack surface and quickly raises security risks. Data containing secrets can inadvertently get pushed into production, while other secrets can be exposed to internal and external bad actors.
With BigID's native secrets detection capabilities, organizations can:
Scan for secrets across the entire software development ecosystem including GitLab, GitHub, Jira, Confluence, Powershell scripts, Slack, and hundreds of other data sources across the environment
Detect secrets faster and more accurately using patented AI and ML-based data classification techniques
Proactively protect secrets with streamlined and automated remediation to continually mitigate the threat of exposure
"Secrets-in-code remains one of the most overlooked vulnerabilities in security, despite being a priority target in some of the biggest breaches of late," said Tyler Young, CISO at BigID. "BigID's purpose-built AI and ML-based data discovery and classification give security teams speed and confidence to protect secrets from unwanted exposure so they don't become another headline."
BigID enables organizations to know their enterprise data and take action for data-centric security, privacy, compliance and governance. Customers deploy BigID to proactively discover, manage, protect, and get more value from their regulated, sensitive, and personal data across their data landscape. BigID has been recognized for its data intelligence innovation as a 2019 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, named to the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100, the 2021 Inc 5000 as the #19th fastest growing company and #1 in Security, the 2021 and 2022 Deloitte 500, and an RSA Innovation Sandbox winner.

Beyond Identity | March 16, 2023
Beyond Identity, the industry leader in providing phishing-resistant, passwordless MFA, has announced the official launch of 'Zero Trust Authentication' as a subcategory of zero trust technology, along with the introduction of the Zero Trust Leadership series of events worldwide, which will be held throughout 2023.
Combining industry-leading security integrators and technologies, such as Beyond Identity, CrowdStrike, Palo Alto Networks, Optiv, World Wide Technology, BeyondTrust, Climb Channel SolutionsPing Identity, and Guidepoint Security will enable organizations to move toward secure authentication designed to improve the zero-trust strategies of the Fortune 5000.
Zero Trust Authentication was created in response to the failure of conventional authentication methods, a problem that has been compounded by the rise of cyberattacks. Implementing Zero Trust Authentication will enable businesses to surpass the constraints of legacy multi-factor authentication (MFA) and passwords and deploy more effective security strategies.
To achieve this, the Zero Trust Authentication strategy incorporates components like Beyond Identity's risk scoring and continuous authentication functionalities, which greatly increase the given level of security.
Tom Jermoluk, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Beyond Identity, mentioned, "In working with leaders across the security ecosystem, it became apparent to us that the industry needs to formally bring identity and access management into the security fold to continuously deliver the highest level of security around users and devices."
