Laminar | November 30, 2022
Laminar, a leader in public cloud data security, today announced it is supporting the launch of Amazon Security Lake from Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon Security Lake automatically centralizes an organization’s security data from cloud, on-premises, and custom sources into a customer owned purpose-built data lake. With support for the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF) standard, Amazon Security Lake reduces the complexity and costs for customers to make their security solutions data accessible to address a variety of security use cases such as threat detection, investigation, and incident response.
“All cybersecurity in the end is about protecting data and all cybersecurity is more effective and efficient with data-context. “Laminar is proud to be a launch partner for Amazon Security Lake, adding data-context to security events for better risk models, effective investigations and efficient remediation.”
Amit Shaked, co-founder and CEO, Laminar
Amazon Security Lake helps organizations aggregate, manage, and derive value from log and event data on the cloud and on-premises to give security teams greater visibility across their organizations. With Amazon Security Lake, customers can use the security and analytics solutions of their choice to simply query that data in place or ingest the OCSF-compliant data to address further use cases. Amazon Security Lake helps customers optimize security log data retention by optimizing the partitioning of data to improve performance and reduce costs. Now, analysts and engineers can easily build and use a centralized security data lake to improve the protection of workloads, applications, and data.
Laminar is a Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) leader that delivers autonomous, agentless, and continuous data security for everything that you build and run on the cloud. Laminar provides autonomous discovery and classification for all data across AWS and hybrid cloud environments into a cloud data catalog, prioritization of data assets by our proprietary risk model, and an agentless and asynchronous approach to DSPM to reduce the exposure surface without impacting performance.
“Data is every enterprise’s most valuable asset, which makes protecting it a critical capability for all cybersecurity solutions,” said Rod Wallace, General Manager for Amazon Security Lake. “Amazon Security Lake enables security teams to optimize security log data collection and retention by optimizing the partitioning of data to improve performance and reduce costs. With the Laminar integration, analysts and engineers can store their data in the OCSF format for further analytics to improve the protection of workloads, applications, and data.”
Laminar’s Cloud Data Security Platform protects data for everything you build and run in the cloud across cloud providers and cloud data warehouses. The platform autonomously and continuously discovers and classifies new datastores for complete visibility, prioritizes risk based on sensitivity and data risk posture, secures data by remediating weak controls and actively monitors for egress and access anomalies. Designed for the multi cloud, the architecture takes an API-only approach, without any agents, and without sensitive data ever leaving your environment. Founded in 2020 by a brilliant team of award winning Israeli red team experts, Laminar is proudly backed by Insight Partners, Tiger Global, Salesforce Ventures, TLV Partners, and SentinelOne.

Noname Security | November 02, 2022
Noname Security, the leading API security company, today shared its EMEA channel strategy, which builds on significant momentum achieved in the past six months and is led by Ides Vanneuville, recently appointed EMEA Channels & Alliances Director.
Vanneuville is an experienced leader in the cybersecurity market with a strong track record in cybersecurity and solutions engineering, having held a number of senior positions at organisations such as Palo Alto Networks, Nutanix, and Aviatrix.
Demand for API security solutions is accelerating throughout EMEA as businesses continue to transition to public cloud and are increasingly adopting cloud-native development strategies. High-profile API breaches have underlined the critical nature of API security and the need for advanced solutions such as the Noname API Security Platform that accelerate digital transformation while addressing API security risks and vulnerabilities.
This offers a new and growing market for established cybersecurity resellers and new entrants alike.
"I am excited to join Noname Security at a time when the channel is transforming to meet growing demand for the powerful yet easy-to-use API security that our platform delivers," comments Vanneuville. "We are building productive partnerships with traditional cybersecurity companies seeking to expand their offering into the DevSecOps market, along with the innovative application-centric resellers that are carving out opportunities in this space."
Noname Security operates a 100% indirect sales model, and its channel strategy focuses on building out presence across EMEA by securing key partnerships with a range of cybersecurity resellers, consultancies, systems integrators, and distributors.
Since March 2022, Noname Security has signed new partnerships with Oblivion, part of Xebia (Netherlands, Denmark & Germany), NewGens Pte (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand), CyberGate Defense (UAE), Evanssion (Middle East & Africa), Aditinet (Italy), iSOC24 (Benelux) and HighPoint (UK & NL) . These partners join a diverse group of existing partners across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
These partners will be supported by Noname Security's global partner program, which provides the resources they need to address key customer pain points in their region and build sizable revenue opportunities in the API security market. The program is tailored to reflect the variations in maturity and background of the API security market in each geographic area.
"API security is a rapidly evolving area that wraps around the ways APIs are being used in different territories," adds Vanneuville. "For example, the increase in open banking in emerging regions like Turkey is driving demand for API security in that region, and we have new Noname Security partners in place to meet that need. Similarly, the booming m-commerce market in Africa is a valuable target for our partners to focus on. Our program helps partners target these key vertical markets and build a reputation for excellence."
API Security Workshops Provide Essential Partner and Market Education
Noname Security is running a series of workshops to educate the market and channel partners about the importance of protecting APIs against attacks and how to go about it. These are currently available, both virtually and in-person in a variety of worldwide cities, and will help Noname's channel partners as well as their end-users to understand:
The underlying security risks when deploying APIs
Emerging threats facing applications and APIs
Techniques used to exploit vulnerable APIs
How Noname Security monitors API traffic for anomalies.
"These educational workshops form an important part of Noname's go-to-market strategy," concludes Vanneuville. "An educated market is a receptive market, and with these workshops we aim to ensure that customers and partners fully understand the urgency of securing APIs in order to protect core revenue streams against disruptive attackers. This is a relatively new area, but one that is of critical importance for the success and stability of modern enterprises as the cloud transition continues and born-in-the-cloud businesses ramp up innovation and expansion."
About Noname Security
Noname Security is the only company taking a complete, proactive approach to API security. Noname works with 20% of the Fortune 500 and covers the entire API security scope across three pillars: posture management, runtime security and API security testing. Noname Security is privately held, remote-first with headquarters in Palo Alto, California, and offices in Tel Aviv and Amsterdam.
