Uptycs Offers Cross-Cloud Anomaly Detection


Uptycs has unveiled a Cross-Cloud Anomaly Detection Engine that lets security teams analyze billions of security events in near-real time and identify and respond to cyber threats, according to the company.

Uptycs showcased its Cross-Cloud Anomaly Detection Engine at AWS re:Invent this week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Threat Detection Remains a Challenge for Many Security Teams

Traditional threat detection methods use rules, static threat intelligence and signatures. These methods often make it difficult for security teams to "see what's coming next," Uptycs pointed out.

Meanwhile, security teams frequently use multiple security tools for Linux workloads running in data centers, public clouds and private clouds. Each of these tools has its "own version of the truth," Uptycs indicated. Thus, these tools can overwhelm security teams with meaningless alerts and cause these teams to miss the signals of multi-vector attacks.

Uptycs Secures AWS and Hybrid Multi-Cloud Migrations

The Cross-Cloud Anomaly Detection Engine uses machine learning techniques to correlate cloud anomalies with MITRE detections, Uptycs noted. In doing so, the engine helps security teams quickly detect and address threats.

Furthermore, Cross-Cloud Anomaly Detection Engine provides "security and compliance consistency before, during and after a migration" to AWS, Uptycs CEO Ganesh Pai said. It also centralizes security visibility and control across security teams' AWS and hybrid multi-cloud environments, Pai added.

Uptycs Expands Its AWS Partnership

Along with announcing its Cross-Cloud Anomaly Detection Engine, Uptycs has become an AWS SaaS QuickLaunch Partner. AWS introduced the SaaS QuickLauch deployment option at re:Invent. This option is designed to help organizations quickly configure and launch third-party SaaS products on AWS.

Previously, Uptycs in November 2023 announced new automated code and runtime protections, which includes support for the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and other connected assets. It has also achieved the AWS Container Security Competency and AWS Security Competency and serves as an AWS Public Sector Partner.

Uptycs offers a platform that combines a cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) and eXtended detection and response (XDR) capabilities. Organizations can use this platform to protect against cyber threats, meet compliance mandates and reduce risk across their clouds, containers and endpoints, the company said.

MSSPs and other technology providers can join Uptycs' partner program to integrate the company's platform into their portfolios.
