Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today introduced an industry-first attack path analysis of APIs and software supply chain exploits to its Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) called Cloud Secure. The new release includes machine learning (ML)-based hacker toolkits and improved visualizations that boost discovery of potential data breaches in first-party APIs and third-party software supply chain assets hosted in multi-cloud environments.
As a result of today’s launch, organizations can now leverage an advanced ML-based CNAPP solution to best secure their cloud-native apps and discover weaknesses which could lead to data breaches. Previously, organizations had to rely on cloud security posture management (CSPM) and agent-based cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP) that lack the ability to accurately detect attack surfaces such as first- and third-party APIs that lead to the critical path hackers utilize to successfully exploit vulnerabilities and extract sensitive data.
Data Theorem’s new release of Cloud Secure now delivers Cloud Hacker Toolkits powered by a new set of visualization features and ML enhancements for exploit prioritization, helping organizations focus on the most critical vulnerabilities that hackers can take advantage of for a cyberattack to extract data from cloud-native apps. In addition, Cloud Secure now offers ML-powered optimized Cloud Assets inventory with new visualizations for organizations to better understand the relationships between applications (mobile and web), APIs (first and third party), and the myriad of cloud resources. As a result, organizations for the first time can have an accurate inventory of their cloud-native and cloud-hosted applications, and visualize the growing attack surfaces including APIs they develop themselves and APIs that come from leveraging open-source software, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and public cloud services within their software supply chains.
As we have seen, machine learning, and particularly generative language learning model (LLM), offers a new set of innovations and creativity for both security practitioners and attackers, said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. Data Theorem is pleased to offer the industry’s first CNAPP solution which leverages some of the more useful elements of machine learning combined with run-time analysis, observability, and active protection. Cloud Secure continues to lead the industry as the most application-centric CNAPP offering helping organizations uncover new attack vectors in cloud-native applications and APIs that ultimately prevent large-scale data breaches. ML-powered Hacker Tool Kits and Optimized Cloud Assets, in addition to Cloud Secure’s other advancements in this new release, uniquely protect organizations’ cloud applications in multi-cloud environments.
Cloud Secure now also offers a new UI design that improves the end-to-end CNAPP workflow for organizations with new dashboard, inventory, security testing, and cloud-native protection sections. For example, the Cloud-Native Protection visualization graph with Cloud Abuse highlights priority events, actors, and attack path analysis that uniquely helps organizations diagnose near real-time data breaches and attempts at exfiltration attacks. In addition, Cloud Secure’s Enhanced Compliance Summary section with status and on-demand reporting downloads automates the audit processes to help organizations prove compliance.
Cloud Secure, powered by Data Theorem’s award-winning Analyzer Engine, helps organizations secure their cloud-native applications and address regulatory compliance for cloud monitoring and reporting. It is the industry’s first solution delivering full-stack attack path analysis for cloud-native applications that starts at the client layer (mobile and web), protects the network layer (APIs), and extends down through the underlying infrastructure (cloud services). Its combination of attack path analysis and run-time active protections enables both offensive and defensive security capabilities to best prevent data breaches of cloud-native applications, embedded APIs, and serverless cloud functions.
Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning Analyzer Engine which leverages a new type of dynamic and runtime analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation. Data Theorem is one of the first vendors to provide a full stack application security analyzer that connects attack surfaces of applications starting at the client layers found in mobile and web, the network layers found in APIs, and the infrastructure layers found in cloud services.

Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, passkeys, privileged access, secrets and remote connections, today announces a new open source project for software developers and DevOps to easily and securely sign git commits with their Keeper vault. Through Keeper Secrets Manager (KSM), users can now use Secure Shell (SSH) keys stored in their Keeper Vault to digitally sign commits to confirm the authenticity of their code.
Git is a version control system that tracks changes in your software projects, and a git commit is a snapshot of these changes at a specific point in time, accompanied by a brief message describing the modifications. Keeper and developers at The Migus Group teamed up to create the open-source solution to sign git commits using the SSH keys stored in a user's Keeper Vault. The integration provides developers with a secure and encrypted repository for their SSH keys and removes the practice of storing them on disk, both increasing security and streamlining DevOps workflows.
The rise in software supply chain attacks highlights the need for organizations to prioritize security around the software supply chain. Signing git commits is a recommended best practice for developers to confirm the authenticity and integrity of code releases. As developers sign commits with SSH keys, they are provided with cryptographic proof of authorship, which helps secure the supply chain by assuring users the software originates from a legitimate source and remains unaltered since its signing. Digital signatures can also feed into a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) to indicate whether a line-item in the SBOM is trusted, depending on the code signature status.
The ability to store SSH keys and other credentials in Keeper Vault offers a layer of protection and ease-of-use that hasn't been the standard, said Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. Our integration enables developers to validate the software code with a cryptographic digital signature and transparent logging, making what historically has been a complex process into a simple one. In the future, all code will be signed, and the software supply chain will have one source of truth that will reduce supply chain attacks.
"Our customers are asking for help insulating themselves from supply chain attacks, so we were already working to do that, often using Keeper," said Adam Migus, Founder and CEO of The Migus Group. "So, we thought working with them to make the git commit-signing process both safer and easier would be a win-win-win. Our customers can now seamlessly sign commits with keys that never leave their vaults. However, the broader community also gains an example of secure commit signing with benefits of central key management."
The SSH keys for signing commits are secured in KSM, a fully managed cloud-based, zero-knowledge platform for securing infrastructure secrets such as API keys, database passwords, SSH keys, certificates and any type of confidential data. KSM eliminates secrets sprawl by removing hard-coded credentials from source code, config files and CI/CD systems. The fully managed, cloud-based and IT friendly solution was named an overall leader on the 2023 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Secrets Management. KSM is supported on Windows, MacOS and Linux. It utilizes a zero-knowledge security architecture and is highly secure withISO 27001 and SOC 2 compliance, as well as FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorization, among numerous other certifications.
Keeper's integration helps support a broader government and industry effort to bring increased security and visibility to the open source community. The ease of providing a cryptographic digital signature allows developers to validate that the software in use is exactly what it is claiming to be and enhances security for both developers and end-users alike.

Today, Cyolo, provider of the fastest and most secure zero-trust access and connectivity solution for hybrid organizations with IT and OT, in partnership with KuppingerCole, released an industry analysis focused on zero trust and remote access for operational technology (OT) environments.
The analysis reveals key insights about the OT cybersecurity threat landscape, outlines high-level security architecture for OT, critical infrastructure systems (CIS) and industrial control systems (ICS), and evaluates key requirements of security regulations and frameworks.
OT environments experience the same kinds of threats as enterprise IT – including ransomware, account takeovers, APTs, and Supply Chains as vectors – while experiencing expanded OT-specific threats. While traditional IT security tools may be adapted, developing robust security architectures for OT environments is inherently complex compared to their IT counterparts. Its unique nature, from equipment and software to communication protocols requires dedicated OT security solutions.
Cyolo can help organizations with OT infrastructure to define and manage access control to those complex environments, said John Tolbert, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole.
Overall key insights include:
OT Threat Landscape. Heightened geopolitical factors have intensified attacks on OT and ICS, posing significant consequences ranging from operational disruptions and service denial to financial repercussions and potential harm to human well-being.
Core Cybersecurity Regulations. The risks and consequences of cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure advanced regulations globally mandating secure architectures and technical controls. KRITIS and the follow-on IT Security Act 2.0 are related examples of such regulations, as well as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
OT Security Architectures and Key Functionalities. There are eight areas of functionality that are central to effective OT security architectures. Cybersecurity architectures for OT must address asset discovery, access control, IT security tool integration, detection and response capabilities, and OT protocol level threats.
As the analysis breaks down, within critical infrastructure interruptions and downtime are not an option. To address the increasing need for secure access in OT environments, Cyolo introduced Cyolo 4.3, which expands key capabilities with more layers of security and making the product easier than ever to use for both administrators and end users in the industrial space.
With Cyolo 4.3, industrial organizations will be able to extend their multi-factor authentication (MFA) across environments through an integration with Duo Security to support their physical tokens as required. Additionally, the company has implemented another layer of security for file transfer within the OT/ICS environment, through query anti-virus software to scan files before they are delivered to their destination. Cyolo is also adapting for further usability, allowing teams to securely invite external users by generating a secure one-time password; and import groups from existing IdPs, using SCIM.
“Ensuring the security of critical infrastructure and industrial processes has become increasingly critical as organizations unite their IT and OT systems. This convergence has expanded the OT threat landscape and introduced significant cybersecurity challenges, as the once-isolated OT networks are now vulnerable to the same threats that have targeted IT networks for years” said Joe O'Donnell, Vice President ICS/OT of Cyolo. “With Cyolo 4.3, industrial entities can confidently navigate the complexities of the modern threat landscape and fortify their defenses against evolving cyber threats.”
The announcement of Cyolo 4.3 highlights the company’s commitment to advancing zero-trust capabilities and it comes on the heels of Cyolo being listed as a Representative Vendor in the 2023 Gartner® “Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access” report for the second consecutive year and recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the 2023 North American New Product Innovation Award for Secure Remote Access to Operational Infrastructure and Industrial Control Systems (OT/ICS).
As the threats to critical infrastructure continue to evolve, Cyolo zero-trust access solution continues to provide the utmost protection and ease of use. To learn more about Cyolo 4.3, visit here. Access the report for a full view of the industry here.
