This St. Patrick's Day, as we immerse ourselves in tales of luck and fortune, it's crucial to understand that when it comes to securing our digital estates, luck alone won't suffice. In Thales 2023 Cloud Security Study, it is noted that “39% of businesses experienced a data breach in their cloud environment last year, an increase of 4 points from the previous year (35%).” In the face of the cybersecurity industry's daunting data challenge—characterized by an overwhelming volume, variety, and velocity of data—Uptycs emerges as the strategic partner you need, not by chance, but by design.

The data dilemma in cybersecurity

Today's cybersecurity landscape is inundated with data. From the exponential increase in infrastructure units and system changes to the burgeoning regulations and the myriad of people and tools interacting with IT infrastructure, the complexity is staggering. With AWS alone boasting over 14,000 identity and access management permissions, the data challenge is palpable. But where others see obstacles, Uptycs sees opportunity.


Uptycs has pioneered the "shift up security" approach, inspired by industry giants from outside the cybersecurity sphere. This strategy involves normalizing security telemetry close to its source, then streaming it into a centralized data lake, the Uptycs Detection Cloud. With a unified data model and security console, Uptycs eliminates the inefficiencies of traditional methods, providing a scalable solution for the data conundrum.
