Exciting news from RSA Conference 2022
Astrix Security, the industry’s first solution to secure app-to-app integrations, has won the coveted Global Infosec Award for Third Party Cyber Risk Management from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.
“Astrix embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.”
“This is a tremendous honor,” said Alon Jackson, Astrix CEO and co-founder. “Being recognized by CDM’s panel of top judges – who are leading information security experts from across the globe – signals that the industry acknowledges the pressing need to secure app-to-app connectivity, not just human-to-app connectivity.”
Astrix Security has emerged to solve a critical security gap for companies struggling with seismic shifts in the security landscape. The shift to remote or hybrid digital workforces, end-user software adoption, and low-code/no-code automation have all contributed to a tangled web of third-party applications connected to sensitive core systems. Meanwhile, existing security solutions focus solely on traditional user-to-app connectivity – not on the soaring app-to-app connectivity leading modern digital workforce transformation.
In today’s hyper interconnected workspace, employees can freely and independently integrate cloud services and APIs into core business applications (like Google Workspace, Office 365, Salesforce, Snowflake, and Github) – all in an effort to get their jobs done more quickly and efficiently. For example:
- An engineering team lead using a new cloud-based dev productivity tool that relies on API access to your source code repositories.
- A marketing operations manager trialing a new SaaS prospecting tool – and integrating it directly with your Salesforce instance to automatically sync leads.
These connections bring daunting new security challenges and extend organizations’ attack surface.
“The recent attacks on Github, Okta, and Mailchimp show the devastating risks of under-monitored, over-provisioned third-party app integrations with a company’s most sensitive systems,” said Jackson. “Improperly secured app-to-app connections massively increase the likelihood of supply chain attacks, data breaches, and compliance violations.”
Astrix is the first solution purpose-built to secure app-to-app integrations. With agentless, one-click deployment, Astrix enables security teams to instantly see through the fog of connections, detect redundant, misconfigured and malicious third-party exposure to their critical systems – enabling their business to unleash the power of integrations and automation while seamlessly controlling security and compliance.
