Wallarm | January 23, 2023
Wallarm, a leading end-to-end API security provider, has recently announced the early release of the Wallarm API leak management solution, an improved API security technology designed to assist organizations in identifying and remediating attacks exploiting leaked API keys and secrets while also providing ongoing protection against hacks in the event of a leak.
Given the recent increase in hacks involving leaked API keys and other API secrets, Wallarm developed the API leak management solution in order to give a comprehensive solution for this issue by automatically detecting leaked API keys and secrets, implementing controls to prevent their use, and protecting against any follow-on attacks. As a result, it prohibits unwanted access to sensitive data within enterprises while also protecting their internal operations and customers from unauthorized use of that data.
With the average cost of an API leak incident being $1.2 million per year, protecting API keys is a security and financial need. However, as locating and revoking API keys is both time-consuming and resource-intensive, Wallarm's proactive API leak management solution focuses on automated detection, remediation, and control using a three-pronged approach:
Detect - Wallarm automatically searches public sources for leaked API secrets, which hackers can discover and exploit in under a minute.
Remediate - Regardless of protocol, Wallarm immediately blocks requests that use compromised API secrets across the entire API portfolio.
Control - Wallarm also continuously monitors and prevents the use of leaked API secrets.
The Wallarm API leak management solution is the first of its kind in the API security space and is coupled with other Wallarm capabilities such as API threat prevention, API discovery and cloud-native WAAP. Wallarm’s API security platform provides customers with full-spectrum visibility, detection, and security for their entire web application and API portfolio, regardless of protocol or environment. This minimizes tool sprawl and costs while also increasing risk management and fostering innovation.
Wallarm, founded in 2016, provides End-to-End API Security solutions to safeguard web applications, APIs, microservices, and serverless workloads in cloud-native environments. With its commitment to developing the cybersecurity industry, it has designed a new security platform to defend tech firms and Global 2000 enterprises throughout their journey from their legacy apps to APIs in cloud-native infrastructures. Hundreds of Security and DevOps teams use Wallarm to discover all of their web apps and API endpoints, traffic flows, and sensitive data consumption for total visibility, secure their whole API portfolio against emerging risks, and respond to incidents automatically for better risk management.

DoControl | February 03, 2023
On February 2, 2023, DoControl, a leading automated software-as-a-service (SaaS) security provider, announced the release of its no-code SaaS security platform on AWS Marketplace, an online catalog that simplifies the provisioning, procurement, and governance of third-party data, software and services. The platform enables joint customers to better protect their business-critical assets by setting up a foundational layer of preventative data access security controls directly through the AWS Marketplace.
Individual SaaS applications' native security features are usually poor and do not provide a consistent way to apply data access controls across all SaaS application types. DoControl provides a single security strategy that centralizes the enforcement of least privilege - beyond the network, identity, and device levels - across the entire estate of an enterprise's SaaS applications. Customers with AWS deployments may now use DoControl solutions to safeguard all shared data and files accessed by every identity or entity, including internal employees, third-party collaborators, and third-party OAuth applications.
On average, an enterprise has approximately 200 applications in use, with hundreds or thousands of internal and external collaborators. Therefore, data security is of utmost importance across these applications (file-sharing, file storage, messaging, and so on), as breaches can result in lost revenue, severe brand damage, regulatory fines and other financial consequences.
DoControl offers SaaS asset management, continuous monitoring, and automated security workflows to security and IT teams to prevent data breaches. In addition, DoControl lowers the physical toil and complexity that security and IT professionals face on a daily basis by replacing manual effort with automation.
Founded in 2020, DoControl is a No-Code SaaS Security Platform that provides organizations with automated, self-service tools needed for SaaS applications data access monitoring, orchestration, and remediation. It takes a distinctive, customer-focused approach to the labor-intensive challenge of security risk management and data exfiltration prevention in popular SaaS applications. DoControl helps lower the work overload and complexity that Security and IT teams face on a daily basis by replacing manual work with automation. The company is backed by investors, including StageOne Ventures, Insight Partners, RTP Global, Cardumen Capital, and CrowdStrike's CrowdStrike Falcon Fund.
