Uptycs embraces a holistic approach to cybersecurity, addressing key challenges around threats, vulnerabilities, and compliance mandates. With insights derived from telemetry data normalized at the point of collection and streamed into a detection cloud. Instead of relying upon siloed point solutions to connect the dots, the shift up approach moves the analytics processing power to the cloud for faster, more effective threat detection and response.

 

To better understand why this new approach to modern cybersecurity is necessary, especially in the cloud, read the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) white paper "Securing the Expanding Cloud-native Attack Surface with Unified XDR and Cloud-native Application Protection." It’s an invaluable resource that's just a click away.

 

Uptycs' Approach to Modern Cybersecurity

Cyber criminals don't operate in silos and neither should your security team. Modern cybersecurity requires a single unified solution to protect your modern attack surface. The ESG white paper sheds light on the need for a unified CNAPP solution like Uptycs

 

Here's a deeper look into the key features of Uptycs' approach:

Connecting Insights Across Attack Surfaces

  • Comprehensive visibility: Uptycs’ unified cloud native application protection (CNAPP) and extended detection and response (XDR) solution stands out by offering an unbridled view across diverse digital assets. Whether it's hybrid clouds, which fuse the strengths of private and public clouds, or containers that package up software code and its dependencies for a smooth run across computing environments, Uptycs ensures nothing is left in the shadows. Moreover, its purview extends to everyday assets like laptops and critical infrastructure components like servers. This wide-reaching visibility ensures that every potential attack vector is monitored, making the digital environment holistically safer.

  • Proactive monitoring: By connecting insights across this broad attack surface, Uptycs can identify threats faster, ensuring that vulnerabilities are addressed before they can be exploited. This proactive approach minimizes potential damages and keeps assets secure.

Unified Platform and Data Model

  • Streamlined operations: Having a myriad of tools for different cybersecurity tasks can be cumbersome and inefficient. Uptycs' approach is to centralize, providing a unified platform that caters to diverse security needs. This simplifies the user experience and reduces the complexities often associated with multi-tool configurations.

  • Consistent insights: A single data model means consistent categorization, processing, and interpretation of data. This consistency translates into coherent and standardized insights across the board, allowing for more accurate threat assessment and faster response times.

Standardized Telemetry and Open Standards

  • Uniform data collection: Standardized telemetry ensures that the data collected from various assets is consistent in format and quality. This uniformity is crucial for accurate analysis, especially when assessing threats that might span multiple assets or environments.

  • Flexibility and integration: By their very nature, open standards are adaptable and can seamlessly integrate with other systems. Uptycs' adoption of open standards ensures that its platform remains flexible, adaptable to new technologies, and easily integrates with other solutions if required. This flexibility ensures the platform remains relevant and effective even as the digital landscape evolves.
