Dremio | February 01, 2023
On January 31, 2023, Dremio, the leading simple and open data lakehouse, and Privacera, the only open-standards-based data governance and security solution provider, announced their latest integration, which expands advanced data governance and security capabilities for customers building modern data applications on top of data lakehouses.
As data lakehouses become more popular, it is becoming increasingly essential to manage and organize safe data access while also adhering to complicated regulatory regulations across all data assets. The new integration now allows Joint clients to expedite secure and governed analytics by decreasing manual processes while automating stringent compliance for contemporary data cooperation, which is especially important in highly regulated industries like financial services.
The enhanced integration proffers joint clients with the following capabilities:
Ensuring scalability and performance
By pushing down policies written in Privacera into Dremio, the native integration allows quick query performance and scalability.
Enhanced data security and governance capabilities
The connector enables enterprises to implement attribute-based access control (ABAC), discovery for tagging and data classification, data encryption, row-level filtering and masking, canned reports and centralized auditing.
Applying Consistent policy administration across Dremio and the majority of hybrid and multi-cloud data sources
Customers can now establish and enforce data access policies and classifications once and then deploy them anywhere.
Founded in 2015, Dremio is a simple, open data lakehouse that offers self-service analytics, data warehouse capability, and data lake flexibility across all data. It boosts agility with a novel data-as-code approach that enables Git-style data experimentation, version control, and governance. In addition, it removes data silos by allowing searches across data lakes, databases, and data warehouses, as well as easing ingestion into the lakehouse. Dremio is employed by hundreds of enterprises, including three of the Fortune 500, to offer mission-critical BI on the data lake. The company is the inventor of Apache Arrow and is on a quest to redefine SQL for data lakes and meet clients where they are on their cloud journey.
Founded in 2016, Privacera is the first company to offer a SaaS-based data governance and security solution that unifies privacy and compliance across various cloud services such as Azure, AWS, Databricks, GCP, Starburst and Snowflake. It assists businesses in making efficient and responsible use of data by guiding them through their data journey. Privacera, founded by the creators of Apache Ranger™ and Apache Atlas™, is often referred to as "Apache Ranger in the Cloud." Fortune 500 customers in the insurance, finance, life sciences, media, retail, and consumer industries, as well as government agencies, use the Privacera platform to mask sensitive data, automate sensitive data discovery, and manage high-fidelity policies at petabyte scale on-premises and in the cloud.

Arkose Labs | January 30, 2023
Arkose Labs™, one of the worldwide leaders in bot management and account security, announced the launch of Arkose Email Intelligence™. This new tool prevents bots and bad actors from using fraudulent or dangerous email addresses to target online services and apps.
Legacy email intelligence systems are not optimized and are too costly to utilize in high-volume applications such as new account registration that are targets of bot-driven assaults. Arkose Email Intelligence combines email risk discovery with the industry-leading Arkose Protect, a bot detection and challenge platform, to create the first email intelligence solution.
This solution prevents bots and bad actors from using fake, throw-away, and other high-risk email addresses to develop synthetic online accounts and launch volumetric account takeover (ATO) attacks. In the second half of 2022, the creation of bogus accounts increased by 81% compared to the first half. Additionally, 11% of all attack attempt sessions were ATOs in 2022 and were of the same severity.
Extremely high market demand exists for an email intelligence service that is both highly effective and reasonably priced. Existing services are exorbitantly costly, often compelling CISOs and product teams to use email intelligence at restricted locations more profoundly in the user flow of an application, such as during the payment transaction. This trade-off leaves important occasions, such as the creation of a new account, exposed to assault and misuse by email addresses that are fake or high-risk.
Arkose Email Intelligence is meant to provide robust abuse protection at a much lower cost than previous industry solutions. This allows businesses to afford email intelligence beyond standard transactions.
In addition to combating automated and fraud farm attacks, Arkose Email Intelligence offers organizations over forty relevant data insights. These extensive data points and signals give a multidimensional perspective of the risk connected with the email address, allowing for additional threat assessment and decision-making.
About Arkose Labs
Arkose Labs is one of the industry leaders in bot management. Its novel method identifies genuine user intent and mitigates threats in real time. In addition, risk assessments and interactive authentication difficulties degrade the return on investment (ROI) behind attacks, ensuring long-term security and enhancing consumer throughput. The firm, headquartered in San Mateo, California, with operations in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia, San Jose, Costa Rica, and London, United Kingdom, placed 106th on the North American Deloitte Fast 500 list for 2022.

ThreatLocker | February 07, 2023
ThreatLocker®, an endpoint security technology pioneer, recently announced the launch of ThreatLocker Ops, a community-driven threat detection tool, at Zero Trust World. This new product helps administrators detect attempted intrusions or system vulnerabilities.
Ops is a policy-driven system that determines good or bad behavior based on ThreatLocker agent data. This information may be used to notify IT administrators of attempted attacks or to initiate measures to harden an environment utilizing other platform components. The Ops platform also integrates with ThreatLocker's new community, which allows similar firms to publish policies that are pertinent to their business, allowing for information exchange and a more comprehensive set of alerts.
With tighter security controls, reduced agent fatigue, and minimal overhead on personal computers, Ops reduces dependency on other IT resources.
ThreatLocker further announced the incorporation of the Third Wall plug-in into its zero trust platform. This announcement followed Third Wall's acquisition last November.
The sophisticated configurations manager for Windows consists of 58 lockdown policies and emergency actions to widen the scope of ransomware prevention and assure user compliance with HIPAA, PCI, NIST, and GDPR.
The latest additions to ThreatLocker comply with several government regulations on the use of Zero Trust strategies to counter current threats.
ThreatLocker will offer its new products to existing and new partners. Currently, it secures over a million endpoints worldwide.
Founded in 2017, ThreatLocker is an endpoint security technology pioneer driving the cybersecurity industry toward a more secure way of preventing unexpected application vulnerabilities. Its ThreatLocker Control Suite integrates solutions for RingfencingTM, Application Whitelisting, Storage Control, and Elevation Control to simplify security. ThreatLocker’s powerful suite of security tools are designed to provide everyone from enterprises to government agencies to academic institutions complete control over which apps operate on their networks.
