Uptycs consolidates cloud security with CNAPP

Uptycs | June 07, 2022

Uptycs, the first cloud-native security analytics platform that enables cloud and endpoint protection from a single solution, unveiled new capability to address critical cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) use cases today at the RSA Conference. In order to offer these functionalities, telemetry from the necessary attack surfaces is ingested into the Uptycs SQL-powered data lake for real-time and historical analysis. With a single data and control plane, this platform architecture allows enterprises to consolidate security tools as they progressively embrace cloud-native software development and operations. Gartner estimates that by 2025, 70% of enterprises will reduce the number of providers safeguarding the life cycle of cloud-native apps to no more than three. Gartner advises security and risk management executives implementing a consolidation approach as follows: "Evaluate security platforms where data and control planes are shared; use this consolidation to develop common rules and close gaps and vulnerabilities across legacy silos." "Security organizations face fast-changing threats while struggling to hire and retain technical talent. At the same time, organizations are accelerating digital transformation by adopting new cloud-native technologies and operations. Unlike other security vendors that take a portfolio approach—lightly integrating separately acquired products—Uptycs addresses these challenges by extending our SQL-powered analytics platform to cover key CNAPP use cases." Ganesh Pai, CEO and co-founder of Uptycs The Uptycs system generalizes telemetry at the collection point into SQL tables, allowing for real-time analysis and correlation as data flows into the cloud. This enables columnar compression as well as rapid query speeds over petabytes of data. According to Gartner: "Securing cloud-native applications offers enterprises the opportunity to redesign security approaches. Rather than treat development and runtime as separate problems—secured and scanned with a collection of separate tools—enterprises should treat security and compliance as a continuum across development and operations. They should look to consolidate tools into cloud-native application protection platforms where possible."
