Axonius, the leader in cybersecurity asset management, today announced the successful completion of the Australian Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment, giving the Australian public sector confidence in the security of the Axonius Cybersecurity Asset Management solution.
The Australian government recently made changes to the Securing of Critical Infrastructure Act. One of the core focus areas for the Act is Risk Analysis, which is impossible without comprehensive asset visibility. By aggregating and correlating data from all deployed IT tools, Axonius provides a holistic view of each unique asset, and the ability to more accurately assess the Risk associated with that asset.
The Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) enables Australian government customers to validate that appropriate controls are in place and determine the appropriate responsibility model for addressing the requirements of the Australian government Information Security Manual (ISM) produced by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC).
“Axonius continually monitors both hardware and software assets, giving government agencies the asset visibility and intelligence they need to accelerate their security programs,” said Vern Fernhout, Country Manager, Australia for Axonius. “With the IRAP assessment complete, Australian government agencies can now confidently adopt Axonius to discover security gaps and enforce security policies – two critical components of complying with new and existing government security requirements.”
Axonius already works with several Australian government agencies on both the state and federal level, and completing the IRAP assessment will accelerate its ability to serve additional customers in the space. In addition to IRAP, Axonius has also been certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP)having passed Common Criteria validation in the United States, further emphasising its commitment to the public sector. The completion of both assessments enables Axonius to help government agencies improve their cybersecurity posture and gain more visibility into their IT and security environments.

CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the global leader in Identity Security, today announced enhancements to its CyberArk Identity Flows orchestration solution, including new integrations with Gurucul, Proofpoint and SentinelOne. Part of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform, CyberArk Identity Flows automates risk response tasks and processes through no-code app integrations and workflows, and improves response times, efficiency and productivity.
CyberArk Identity Flows includes a user-friendly workflow builder with powerful integration and orchestration capabilities for identity-related business processes, data management and security event responses.
New features enable organizations to orchestrate complex responses to a potential threat or security event and act on the valuable data provided by threat monitoring and alerting systems. For example, when a security alert is triggered due to continued failed login attempts, users can be automatically moved into a “risky persons” group to restrict access to specific resources. This feature can also automatically notify relevant parties of the risk, create IT tickets, or take other actions based on security policies.
The new technology integrations, available on CyberArk Marketplace, expand these capabilities to work with the industry’s leading threat detection systems, including:
Gurucul Security Analytics and Operations Platform – detects threats and provides analytics-driven risk scoring to quickly identify and prioritize new, emerging and unknown threats. CyberArk Identity Flows can gather the risk score from Gurucul and orchestrate appropriate responses and actions to reduce the manual effort associated with threat investigation and remediation while securing the associated identity(s).
Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) – detects email threats and assigns a level of risk to individuals with a Very Attacked People (VAP) feature. CyberArk Identity Flows can utilize the insights provided by Proofpoint to orchestrate appropriate responses such as moving identities into different groups to change access permissions, change an authentication policy, send alerts, post notifications or create IT tickets.
SentinelOne Singularity Platform – detects and hunts for threats across user endpoints, containers, cloud workloads and IoT devices. When risks are detected, CyberArk Identity Flows leverages that context to make decisions within workflow actions that need to take place across the identity infrastructure.
With CyberArk Identity Flows, workflows can be built in minutes through a user-friendly visual editor and thousands of pre-built connectors to more than 700 applications. CyberArk Identity Flows now also integrates with CyberArk Identity Security Intelligence, a shared service of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform that leverages user behavior analytics to detect and remediate anomalous and risky activity by employees. When high-risk behavior is detected, CyberArk Identity Flows is used to orchestrate response actions to reduce response times to attacks to minimize risk.
“Flexible automation and orchestration are critical to a proactive Identity Security program and vital to improving the security posture of our clients. That’s why we’ve been so focused on delivering new CyberArk Identity Flows innovations,” said Peretz Regev, chief product officer at CyberArk. “With these enhancements and integrations, we make it simple for organizations to use CyberArk Identity Flows to reduce IT overhead, accelerate service agility and strengthen their overall security, ultimately improving operational efficiencies.”
CyberArk Identity Flows can be purchased as a standalone solution, or as part of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform. CyberArk applies intelligent privilege controls to all identities – human and machine – with continuous threat detection and prevention across the entire identity lifecycle. With the CyberArk Identity Security Platform, organizations can enable Zero Trust and least privilege with complete visibility, enabling every identity to securely access any resource, located anywhere, from everywhere.

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.
