Datadog Launches Cloud Security Management to Provide Cloud Native Application Protection

Datadog | October 20, 2022

Datadog, Inc., the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced the general availability of Cloud Security Management. This product brings together capabilities from Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Workload Security (CWS), alerting, incident management and reporting in a single platform to enable DevOps and Security teams to identify misconfigurations, detect threats and secure cloud-native applications. As organizations' cloud architectures become more complex, assessing security risks and collaborating across teams to mitigate them has become increasingly difficult. While security engineers are responsible for identifying threats and misconfigurations, DevOps teams are responsible for remediating them. DevOps and security teams often use multiple point solutions and tools to report on and resolve issues, but these tools provide an incomplete view of security risks and create silos between teams. Datadog's Cloud Security Management brings together observability and security insights across an organization's entire cloud environment—without the need to deploy additional agents. This shared context provides security engineers with deeper insights to collaborate with DevOps teams and more quickly remediate security issues. "Tight collaboration between security and DevOps teams is required to mitigate security risks in today's environments. This change has been brought on by the move to the cloud. Security teams today cannot take countermeasures alone without potentially impacting the performance and reliability of production systems. "Datadog Cloud Security Management helps these teams work together to remediate issues quickly by providing a single platform—as opposed to multiple point solutions—that delivers a complete view of an organization's infrastructure and risk exposure." Prashant Prahlad, VP of Product at Datadog "Using Cloud Security Management was like having a member of the InfoSec team embedded within our DevOps team," said Chad Upton, Vice President of Infrastructure at FirstUp. "All the security metrics were front and center so they could easily see the number of misconfigured resources in a single view and they didn't have to wait for someone from InfoSec to reach out and let them know there was an issue." "Because Datadog Cloud Security Management shows observability and security data together, alongside the resource relationship graph, we were able to remove cloud resources that were no longer in use and easily understand the impact of misconfigured cloud resources by visualizing all dependencies," said Ben Collen, Senior Director of Engineering and CISO at Vertex. Cloud Security Management expands on the foundational capabilities of cloud security posture management and cloud workload security of a CNAPP solution through: Resource Relationship Graph: By providing a visual risk assessment of misconfigured resources and vulnerabilities across an organization's cloud infrastructure, DevOps teams can take remedial actions based on the impact of the risk. Custom Detection Rules: Teams can now create fine-grained threat detection rules across all cloud resources—including their associated logs and security incident events. Resource Catalog (Beta): Engineers can access a comprehensive visual representation of all security risks associated with each cloud resource in a customer's environment and identify the owners of every cloud infrastructure resource to remediate vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. About Datadog Datadog is the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications. Our SaaS platform integrates and automates infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring and log management to provide unified, real-time observability of our customers' entire technology stack. Datadog is used by organizations of all sizes and across a wide range of industries to enable digital transformation and cloud migration, drive collaboration among development, operations, security and business teams, accelerate time to market for applications, reduce time to problem resolution, secure applications and infrastructure, understand user behavior and track key business metrics.

Noname Security Announces Ambitious EMEA Channel Strategy to Capitalise on Accelerating Demand for API Security

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.
