mParticle announces new custom access roles API to enhance security of customer data

mParticle | October 10, 2022

mParticle, a leader in customer data infrastructure, announced today that it is introducing Custom Access Roles to its platform, extending its enterprise-grade controls to enhance security and simplify compliance. With customer data breaches in the news almost daily, there is a need for more robust data controls, especially for the world's largest brands. Modern security and compliance practices take a least privileged access approach to platform roles. To achieve true least privileged access, companies need to customize their roles to fit their business. Custom Access Roles give customers the flexibility to create unique roles tailored to the needs of not only marketers, developers, and product managers, but anyone in the company who works with customer data. Custom Access Roles limit the number of users that have privileged access, thereby protecting customer data. As teams set out to build their first-party data set, data protection becomes even more important. Not all users need access to all customer data, and admins need to be able to assign access based on the nuances of their business. With Custom Access Roles, mParticle customers can decide which permissions belong to which roles, ensuring that the right users have access to the right data. For example, a "Developer" role could have access to set up a new integration, but not to create audiences. An "Auditor" role could have access to view reporting, but not to edit reports. The mParticle Customer Data Platform (CDP) is the trusted customer data pipeline of the world's largest brands. It is the only CDP on the market with advanced security and privacy controls built for the compliance regulations enterprise organizations face. With over 300+ tested and trusted out-of-the-box integrations, infrastructure that spans the globe, and a solutions team with a proven track record of success. Custom Access Roles is another example of mParticle's focus on addressing enterprise-level challenges as they continue to evolve. About mParticle mParticle is an AI Customer Data Platform that powers the entire marketing stack with real-time customer data. Companies like NBCUniversal, JetBlue, Venmo, and Airbnb use mParticle to simplify their customer data infrastructure, maximize the value of their data, and accelerate growth at scale.

Datadog Announces Integration with Amazon Security Lake

Datadog | November 30, 2022

Datadog, Inc., the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced a new integration with Amazon Security Lake. The integration, announced during AWS re:Invent, makes it easy for Amazon Security Lake users to send cloud security logs to Datadog in a standard format. Building data pipelines in order to aggregate and route security logs to various security analytics solutions can be a cumbersome and time-consuming process. For Amazon Security Lake customers, Datadog's integration provides an easy way to send security logs to Datadog with minimal configuration required. Once security logs are ingested into Datadog, customers can analyze and identify threats through out-of-the-box detection rules or by writing custom security rules. They can also do deeper investigations using Datadog's log management tools. "Amazon Security Lake makes it easier for teams to manage their cloud security data and analyze it with partner solutions of their choice," said Rod Wallace, General Manager for Amazon Security Lake. "Datadog's integration with Amazon Security Lake will allow customers to collect their security logs to improve their cybersecurity posture and send them to Datadog for analysis leveraging an open source schema." "Security threat detection and investigation is dependent on an effective logging strategy that ensures critical logs are being properly analyzed. However, managing dozens of log integrations from cloud-hosted accounts and entities can be cumbersome and lead to gaps in visibility. "Amazon Security Lake and Datadog are working together to provide an easy way to set up and manage important log integrations for Datadog Cloud SIEM, giving customers deep visibility into their most critical infrastructure."
