Aunalytics Launches Security Patching Platform as a Service

Aunalytics | September 27, 2022

Aunalytics, a leading data management and analytics company delivering managed IT and data platform services for mid-sized and enterprise businesses, today initiated its Security Patching Platform, Co-managed Patching as a Service to complement the company’s Advanced Security solution suite. Windows OS and supported 3rd party patch management allow for tighter security in the defense against cyberattacks and the new offering ensures active remediation. According to a 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report by Verizon, around 70 percent of successful cyberattacks exploited known vulnerabilities with available patches, making it important to update operating systems and applications regularly to prevent such attacks. Now, Aunalytics’ new technology as a service includes the tools, structure, strategy and intelligence for managing patch deployment and is a complete solution with best practices, templates, libraries, and built-in alert thresholds. Lack of security patching leads to vulnerabilities within an organization’s information systems, internal controls, or system processes, which can then be exploited by cybercriminals. Using a collection of tools, cyber attackers use the vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to corporate systems and data. Identifying and resolving vulnerabilities is very important since a successful exploit can lead to a full-scale system breach. Workstation and server application patching ensures that organizations have baseline protection against the latest security vulnerabilities, preventing such attacks before they occur. However, patching can be difficult to manage and update in real-time as software fixes are published on an ongoing basis. Setting up and coordinating manual patching across an organization can be extremely cumbersome, taking days to organize, schedule, and execute across an entire company. McKinsey cites good patch management as a top proactive maintenance measure that can help organizations prevent cyberattacks. However, knowing the priority level for patch installment can be confusing and lead to poor patch management as a result. Enlisting the help of a partner to employ security patching best-practices can add true value to many organizations. Aunalytics patch detection, download, and installment methods are developed considering each client's security and uptime requirements and prioritized in order of threat potential. Aunalytics’ experienced security patching team proactively monitors for updates, eliminating worry for end users and server administrators. As part of the new service, users gain access to comprehensive security solutions with customized alerting and vulnerability prioritization, leveraging proprietary solutions and processes. The platform facilitates collaboration between IT and security teams and includes the following capabilities: Inventory and performance management and proactive alerting Patch deployment control strategy, prioritization, planning Patch vetting and blacklisting intelligence Windows Operating System patch management Supported 3rd Party Patch Management Anti-Malware DNS-based Malware Protection Device Encryption Management Innovative management tool library “Security patch exploits can have extremely damaging effects on an organization, decreasing revenues or causing reputational damage, making it imperative to have security patching in place. “Aunalytics’ Security Patching Platform services allow for the rapid resolution of these concerns to maintain the highest levels of cyber-resiliency.” Chris Nicholson, Vice President of Managed IT Services About Aunalytics Aunalytics is a leading data management and analytics company delivering Insights-as-a-Service for mid-sized businesses and enterprises.

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. Over the last year, the company has raised $150M in funding and acquired two startups, Vidora and Indicative. Founded in 2013, mParticle is headquartered in New York City with employees around the globe.
