Uptycs, a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) and eXtended detection and response (XDR) solution provider, now offers agentless scanning for cloud workloads.
Agentless scanning enables security teams to view their organizations' cloud workloads and identify misconfigurations, policy violations, exposed secrets, vulnerabilities and malware, Uptycs noted. As such, security teams can utilize agentless scanning to help their organizations maintain data sovereignty across their cloud workloads.
What Uptycs' Agentless Scanning Offers
Agentless scanning provides security teams with a point-in-time snapshot across their organizations' cloud workloads, Uptycs said. It allows security teams to look for vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and malware across cloud workloads and verify they are running in compliance with industry standards.
In addition, agentless scanning ensures that "no data leaves the customer environment," Uptycs noted. Agentless scanning also normalizes security telemetry at the point of collection and allows security teams to use it for analysis, reporting and queries.
Security teams can deploy Uptycs' agentless scanning, in-agent scanning or both. These deployment options are available through a single user interface and can be customized based on YARA rules and other requirements.
Agentless workload scanning for AWS and GCP will be available to Uptycs customers by the end of 2022, with support for Microsoft Azure expected in the first quarter of 2023.
Uptycs Adds Cloud Detection and Response (CDR) Capabilities
The agentless workload scanning announcement comes after Uptycs in July 2022 unveiled CDR capabilities that organizations can use to identify and remediate cyberattacks in AWS environments. These capabilities help organizations detect privilege escalation, remote code execution, data exfiltration and other malicious behaviors in AWS environments, the company stated.
Uptycs offers a unified CNAPP and XDR solution that organizations can use to reduce risk and respond to threats, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. The company provides a partner program that lets MSSPs, systems integrators (SIs) and other channel resellers integrate its CNAPP and XDR solution into their portfolios.
