Understanding a Security Threat’s “Blast Radius”
The integration allows security teams to use Wiz’s platform to leverage Cyera’s Data Security Graph to “understand the blast radius that an active security threat or vulnerability represents and how to respond to remediate the issue,” according to a prepared statement. It provides these teams with insights into the data they manage and what information is at risk.
In addition, security teams can use the Cyera-Wiz integration to automatically and continuously identify data stores across IaaS, PaaS and SaaS environments, the companies noted. These teams can view web-based risks and access permissions and utilize detection and response capabilities to secure their data. They also can use Cyera’s data context in conjunction with Wiz’s risk posture assessments.
A Closer Look at Cyera and Wiz
Cyera in March 2022 launched from stealth with $60 million in funding from venture capital firm Sequoia Capital and other investors. Organizations can use Cyera’s platform to improve their cloud security posture, the company indicated.
This platform’s features include:
- Cloud data discovery and classification
- Cloud data policy management support
- Cloud data access support
Wiz helps organizations secure “everything” they build and run in the cloud, the company noted. It provides an analysis engine that provides organizations with the following capabilities:
- Cloud security posture management
- Kubernetes security posture management
- Cloud workload protection
- Infrastructure-as-code scanning
- Cloud infrastructure entitlement management
- Data security posture management
Wiz reported $100 million in annual recurring revenues in the 18 months following its launch in December 2020, according to TechCrunch. The company also raised $250 million in Series C funding at a $6 billion valuation in October 2021.
Cyera and Wiz do not currently offer partner programs for MSSPs and MSPs. However, both companies may look to provide partner programs in the future.
