What is a Security Knowledge Graph™
Cyscale Security Knowledge Graph™ uses a data model that maps networks of cloud entities in an exhaustive graph which supports automated reasoning across multi-cloud infrastructures. When applied to cloud security, the knowledge graph model charts the full scale of your cloud assets, including their type, properties, and the relationships between them. Based on deep understanding, it makes semantic interpretations that factor in both the complexity and diversity of assets that generate security issues
For example, the Cyscale Power Cloud Platform can interrelate dissimilar entities such as user identity, endpoints, code repositories, production environments, VMs, and production databases. Cyscale Security Knowledge Graph™ enables machines to understand these complex relations and derive new knowledge that human specialists can use without having to perform effort-intensive analyses themselves.
The Cyscale Security Knowledge Graph in a nutshell
All-inclusive graph of all your digital assets.
Instant correlations across all cloud accounts, SaaS platforms, and assets
Deep understanding of their relationships and interactions
Semantic interpretations that cover all assets, no matter how diverse
Resource-intensive data collection and analysis done for you
Automatically pinpoints data security issues with deep visibility through infrastructure layers
No cloud security vendor leverages the power of the knowledge graph technology to deliver precise correlations between cloud resources and data loss risks.
If knowledge graph tech is this useful, why hasn’t anyone used it before?
Because it’s difficult and expensive.
Cybersecurity encompasses many heterogeneous systems which produce complex knowledge that is difficult to orchestrate and represent accurately and completely. Knowledge graph technology can do that but the data model needs to be customized to the specific needs of specialists working in information security.
To enable this flexibility, we merged the knowledge graph model with our cloud security expertise to help our customers effectively manage the escalating risk of losing and damaging cloud data. We do the heavy lifting because we enjoy the challenge of building a solution to a big problem that’s not going away anytime soon.
How Security Knowledge Graph™ delivers knowledge-driven automation
Get truly contextual insights that incorporate your full range of cloud assets
Cybersecurity tools are often designed for specific issues. So assembling and managing each one creates a lot of overhead and drains your time, energy, and budget. We’ve been there too.
It’s time for a new m.o.!
When you start using Cyscale, we create a micrograph for every cloud system you have. We then connect these micrographs to generate your own Security Knowledge Graph™. That’s how the
Cyscale Power Cloud Platform gives you a truly contextual understanding of your digital assets.
Bring all your cloud data under one roof
Identify and track all your cloud entities
Remove the limitations of list-based inventories
Create rich security profiles for each asset
Valuable insights for peace of mind. :)
Identify security issues generated by cross-cloud interactions
Because each cloud asset is a node in the Security Knowledge Graph™, it’s easy to see how it interacts with other entities. You can move across the graph and identify issues in a much broader, richer context – with no additional effort.
You can’t achieve this when dealing with tables because rows and columns hold a limited volume of often disconnected details.
For example, if you:
- have an Okta user identity
- that has access to an endpoint (laptop) with outdated packages
- which is allowed to push to a Git repository
- and this identity also has access to an AWS production environment
- and the associated user identity has direct access to a VM/Amazon instance
- and this VM is connected to a production database containing credit cards numbers
then you can clearly see the risk these interactions pose in a visual format (Graph View).
Improve confidence in your security and compliance posture with real-time evidence
Cloud security can be a jungle. Data gets misplaced, duplicated, mismatched, unsecured, or simply forgotten. So when you lack visibility that goes beyond disparate reports, it’s difficult to gain a strong grasp of your security posture.
With Security Knowledge Graph™ at its core, Cyscale helps you easily track security and compliance for your multi-cloud infrastructure.
Use an extensive collection of ready-to-use policies and standards with instant access to inline evidence collection for each of them.
Close visibility gaps in your Governance, Risk and Compliance system
Setting up a reliable GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance system) system doesn’t have to take ages and more in-house resources than you can ever afford. The Cyscale Power Cloud Platform is a GRC tool you can truly count on! It packs rich, customizable features you can use to build and manage a competitive governance process that gets technical teams and management on the same page.
The Security Knowledge Graph™ brings an orchestrated approach to cybersecurity and policy enforcement. Edit and customize standards across all your cloud providers in a single dashboard, tracking implementation and consolidating your data-rich archive as you go.
Tackle OWASP Cloud Top 10 security risks with a steady hand
Use the built-in OWASP Cloud Top 10 security policy to automatically check for alignment with this respected industry standard.
We do it so you don’t have to.
Pay-per-use and scale your cloud security program as you grow
Would it be cheaper to build this in-house?” It’s a common dilemma but does your organization have what it takes to become a security company? Implementing the knowledge graph model is a resource-intensive process that requires industry-specific know-how, specialized technical components, and broad security expertise. It also takes time, the most invaluable resource of all. With Cyscale, you pay for what you use and nothing more. As your business grows, you remain fully in control of how you scale your security program, as our Power Cloud Platform adapts to your changing needs.
Cyscale makes it easy to holistically view your security posture and maintain awareness of it.
With just a few clicks, I can register my AWS environment and get a comprehensive inventory of all the resources we have, then evaluate all of those resources. Then, as an added bonus, the ongoing evaluation of our environment helps me understand if we’ve had configuration drift.Ovidiu Pop
