-Anodot today announced that it has joined Snowflake’s Partner Network. The partnership will enable joint customers to gain real-time and actionable insight into data collected in Snowflake, the Data Cloud company platform.

Anodot and Snowflake are extracting maximum value from the world’s data with Snowflake’s Data Cloud, helping joint customers leverage AI-based analytics and business monitoring to quickly analyze, optimize, and monetize all business data. According to Forrester Research, between 60 and 73 percent of all data within an enterprise goes unused for analytics, which puts them at a competitive disadvantage at a time when real-time, actionable insights are critical to protecting revenue and improving customer experience.

The power of this partnership enables enterprises to monitor high-volume, high-frequency data, uncovering important insights for customers in data-intensive industries including fintech, telecommunications, ad-tech, e-commerce, and gaming.

For example, Ask Media Group uses Anodot’s integration with Snowflake to autonomously monitor a high volume of metrics across 50 domains and receive real-time alerts on critical incidents related to online ads, where delays negatively impact revenue.

The Snowflake Partner Network unlocks the potential of the Data Cloud with a broad array of tools and partners. Certified partnerships and integrations enable customers to leverage Snowflake’s flexibility, performance, and ease of use to deliver more meaningful data insights.

“Snowflake has solved the data collection challenge for over 5,000 global customers and now it is time to analyze that business data in real time,” said Anodot Co-founder and CEO David Drai. “This will help customers leverage and monetize data in a fully optimized manner, accessing new insights in real time to make better business decisions faster and with greater assurance.”

Our collaboration with Anodot allows our joint customers to analyze business data significantly faster. Anodot makes analyzing data in Snowflake more efficient for organizations, thereby generating a more immediate and meaningful return-on-investment.”

Uneven Adoption of Emerging Tech Found in a New Cloud Security Alliance Survey

Cloud Security Alliance | February 07, 2022

Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world's largest organization dedicated to creating standards, certifications, and best practices that ensure a secure cloud computing environment, revealed the results of its most recent poll, Cloud Security and Technology Maturity, today. The poll, which was commissioned by CyberRes, a microfocus line of business and one of the world's top corporate software vendors, provides insight into enterprises' current and future intentions for cloud strategy, security, cloud services, and cloud-related technology. "Cloud is a continuously evolving space with new services, strategies, and technologies springing up seemingly overnight. It's imperative, therefore, that organizations regularly change and adapt their approach to cloud and cloud security. While many of the survey's findings were in line with what we would expect, it was surprising that some technologies that have garnered the most hype are not, in fact, what organizations are planning to implement," Hillary Baron, lead author, and research analyst, Cloud Security Alliance Despite introducing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018, privacy-by-design is still in its early stage of development. With two-thirds of organizations (65%) either developing or planning to develop strategies, only 8% of respondents indicated that they have a fully implemented privacy-by-design strategy. Similarly, the survey also found that while blockchain and distributed ledger technology have been hyped for years, implementation rates have stagnated, owing to high failure rates caused by a lack of technical understanding combined with a high demand for resources. Quantum-safe security and 5G aren't widely used yet, and additional research is required to determine the root causes and forecast a more reliable adoption timeframe. "The growing popularity of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and Zero Trust, for instance, was definitely in keeping with what we have been hearing anecdotally across the industry, but there were also some surprises in what companies aren't using. While multi-cloud adoption is strongly favored, many organizations are facing challenges in taking deployments to a next level," said Satya Divadari, Head of Enterprise Security Architecture, CyberRes, a Micro Focus line of business.

Google Starts Selling Cloud-Computing Services in Saudi Arabia via Aramco

Google, Aramco | December 28, 2020

Google will start selling its cloud-computing services in Saudi Arabia through a deal with oil producer Aramco, a controversial move by the internet giant. The partnership gives Alphabet Inc.’s Google regulatory clearance to set up what it calls a “cloud region” in the kingdom, the companies said last week. Employees at Google have called on the company to abstain from work in the oil and gas industry, citing environmental concerns, and work with authoritarian regimes. Still, Thomas Kurian, chief executive officer of Google’s cloud unit, has pushed to service the energy industry. It’s one of a handful of fields where Google is trying to chase Microsoft Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. in the cloud-computing market. “With this agreement, Google Cloud’s innovative technology and solutions will be available to global customers and enterprises in Saudi Arabia to enable them to better serve end consumers,” Kurian said in a statement. Aramco described the market for cloud services in the country as reaching $30 billion by 2030. About Aramco: Saudi Aramco is the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a fully integrated, global petroleum and chemicals enterprise. Over the past 80 years we have become a world leader in hydrocarbons exploration, production, refining, distribution and marketing. Saudi Aramco’s oil and gas production infrastructure leads the industry in scale of production, operational reliability, and technical advances. Our plants and the people who run them make us the world’s largest crude oil exporter, producing roughly one in every eight barrels of the world’s oil supply.

Netwrix Announces Release of Global 2021 Netwrix Cloud Data Security Report

Netwrix | January 13, 2021

The report reveals that over half (54%) of organizations that store customer data in the cloud had security incidents in 2020. As a result, as many as 62% of organizations plan to remove sensitive data from the cloud or have already done so to improve their data security. The survey found that the most common types of cloud security incidents in 2020 were phishing (reported by 40% of organizations), ransomware or other malware (24%), and accidental data leakage (17%). Over half of respondents stated that these incidents required obtaining extra budget to address associated security gaps. Data theft scenarios did considerable damage to businesses in other ways as well. Incidents involving insider data theft negatively impacted company valuation for 33% of organizations, while data theft by hackers led to customer churn and loss of competitive edge (35% each). The top data security challenges named by respondents were lack of IT staff (52%), lack of budget (47%) and lack of cloud security expertise (44%). Interestingly, 48% of CISOs noted that the organization's desire for growth hinders efforts to ensure proper data security in the cloud The most popular cloud security controls that organizations already have in their arsenal are encryption (62%), auditing of user activity (58%) and employee training (58%). Also, the majority of respondents either already classify sensitive data in the cloud (49%) or plan to implement this control in the future (31%). "The top three challenges organizations face in securing data in the cloud are lack of staff, financial resources and expertise. These hardships force security teams to operate in the 'new day, new breach' reality," said Ilia Sotnikov, Vice President of Product Management at Netwrix. "To identify, detect and protect against threats in the cloud continuously, organizations should invest in solutions that help prioritize risks and automate security routines, such as tools that provide data discovery, activity auditing and alerting. That way, security teams can better manage risks, respond to the attacks promptly and minimize negative business outcomes." About Netwrix: Netwrix makes data security easy, thereby simplifying how professionals can control sensitive, regulated and business-critical data, regardless of where it resides. More than 10,000 organizations worldwide rely on Netwrix solutions to secure sensitive data, realize the full business value of enterprise content, pass compliance audits with less effort and expense, and increase the productivity of IT teams and knowledge workers.
