Centripetal, the global leader in intelligence powered cybersecurity, today announced that it has opened its Galway based European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence to address cybersecurity opportunities in the UK, Ireland and across Europe. Additionally, the company is enabling cloud-based deployments of its CleanINTERNET® solution for total enterprise protection. Centripetal is headquartered in the US and has plans to create 50 jobs in Galway. The project is supported by the Government of Ireland through IDA Ireland.
According to the International Trade Administration, the cybersecurity market in Ireland is thriving, valued at €280 million. However, with economic crime and fraud on the rise in recent years, cybercrime is extremely disruptive in how it impacts the business community. Grant Thornton Ireland reports that the cost of cybercrime in Ireland exceeded €9.6 billion in 2020. With the opening of Centripetal’s European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence, the company will bring its innovative, patented technologies to the European market to protect organizations from every known cyberthreat.
Centripetal’s European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence will serve as the central hub where new and existing customers can work with Centripetal to gain insight on the current European and global threat landscape and how they might be affected. Customers will have access to Centripetal’s global cyber intelligence operations analyst team, who continuously analyze emerging threats, highlighting critical risks and applying global threat intelligence.
“Today’s jobs announcement is yet another vote of confidence in Galway, in our available skilled workforce and in our city and county as a great place to work and live. Galway was home to a number of significant investment announcements last year including Fidelity Investment, Genesys, SAP and Diligent, so Centripetal are certainly in good company,” said Minister Hildegarde Naughton TD. “Congratulations again to the entire team at Centripetal and thank you for choosing not only Galway but the people of Galway.”
‘’The news that Centripetal is to open a European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence in Galway is great news for the West Region and this investment will support the development of the wider technology ecosystem in Ireland for cyber,” said Anne-Marie Tierney Le-Roux, Head of Department Enterprise Technology at IDA Ireland. “The creation of 50 jobs is a vote of confidence in the talent and skill set that our regional locations in Ireland have to offer. I would like to wish Centripetal every success as they scale operations.’’

Contrast Security (Contrast), the code security platform built for developers and trusted by security, today announced it has been recognized as a Visionary by Gartner in the new "Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing" for 2023. We believe the recognition further validates that the Contrast Secure Code Platform is a strong fit for organizations looking to improve their application security posture.
"The application security testing market continues to be saturated with solutions that lack context and overwhelm DevSecOps teams with false positives," said Steven Phillips, Vice President of Product Marketing at Contrast Security. "We've listened to feedback from our customers and have put a focus on delivering a comprehensive platform that helps overcome these challenges. It's encouraging to see our position within the Magic Quadrant due to our Ability to Execute and the Completeness of our Vision. We provide customers with the tools they need to deploy real-time security tools accurately."
The Contrast Secure Code Platform provides customers the ability to "Shift Smart" allowing DevSecOps teams to apply security testing throughout the development process across the entire software development lifecycle. As the only unified code security platform on the market, Contrast leverages the power of instrumentation to embed security within the application's runtime. This solves the challenges of legacy application security tools present in modern software environments. Furthermore, this inside-outside approach allows organizations to very cleanly combine results from the various tools, coordinate actions between them and write and execute complex security and testing policies with very little overhead visible to developers. Those are the features that more complex offerings often fail to achieve.

Uptycs, provider of the first unified CNAPP and XDR platform, today announced an integration with Amazon Security Lake from Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon Security Lake automatically centralizes security data from across AWS environments, leading SaaS providers, on-premises, and cloud sources into a purpose-built data lake. Amazon Security Lake manages data throughout its lifecycle with customizable data retention settings and converts and conforms incoming security data to the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF) open standard, making it easier to automatically collect, combine, and analyze security data from AWS, security partners, and analytics providers. The integration with Uptycs helps organizations speed up threat detection and incident response by correlating Uptycs telemetry and events with data from a vast number of other security tools.
With the proliferation of technologies and environments, security teams need to spend time setting up one-to-one integrations between their tools to correlate threat activity. This is expensive and delays response to security threats. In contrast, a shift up approach to cybersecurity does not need complex integrations and intermediary systems to connect the dots. The premise involves getting the data in a standardized format right out of the gate, and streaming it up into a data lake so security teams can do cross-correlations that speed up threat detection and response.
The OCSF project offers a consistent approach towards cybersecurity telemetry by providing a standard schema for common security events, defining versioning criteria to facilitate schema evolution, and including a self-governance process for security log producers and consumers. This enables organizations to easily bring together data from multiple security tools.
"We are excited to bring the security telemetry from Uptycs into Amazon Security Lake," says Ganesh Pai, CEO and co-founder of Uptycs. "A key tenet of the shift up approach to cybersecurity is to stream normalized security telemetry into a data lake, moving security analytics processing power to the cloud. Uptycs and AWS customers can now enjoy enhanced protection and faster reaction time as they benefit from standardized OCSF-based telemetry across their on-prem and cloud workloads."
Using the OCSF format, Uptycs and Amazon Security Lake allow organizations to have a consistent telemetry, enabling them to easily correlate data from a variety of security, SIEM, and SOAR tools. Uptycs, an AWS Security Competency Partner, will send a wealth of OCSF-formatted data from on-premises and cloud assets to Amazon Security Lake, including behavioral threat detections from endpoints and cloud workloads, anomaly detections, policy violations, risky policies, misconfigurations, and vulnerabilities.
Uptycs prospects and customers can get started with the Amazon Security Lake integration by contacting Uptycs.
Your developer's laptop is just a hop away from cloud infrastructure. Attackers don't think in silos, so why would you have siloed solutions protecting public cloud, private cloud, containers, laptops, and servers?
Uptycs reduces risk by prioritizing your responses to threats, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, sensitive data exposure, and compliance mandates across your modern attack surface—all from a single platform, UI, and data model. This includes the ability to tie together threat activity as it traverses on-prem and cloud boundaries, thus delivering a more cohesive enterprise-wide security posture.
