Uptycs announced that its unified cloud-native application protection and extended detection and response platform has received a new functionality that serves as an early-warning system for security teams, according to SiliconANGLE.
The startup says its platform can now gather and analyze GitHub audit logs as well as user identity information from Azure Active Directory and Okta. This allows security teams to monitor for suspicious activity while developers move code through repositories or into production, and block threat actors before they can gain access to data in the cloud. The added functionality builds on existing security capabilities such as tracking support for endpoints, Kubernetes, cloud, containers, and control plane for cloud.
Recent high-profile data breaches, such as LastPass and CircleCI, highlight the need to detect threat actors earlier in the kill chain before they move from a developers laptop into crown jewel data and services. This means giving security teams the ability to track threat activity across developer machines, source code repositories, identity providers, and cloud infrastructure, according to company co-founder and CEO Ganesh Pai.
