Zscaler has added new functionality to Posture Control for securing applications. Data loss prevention (DLP) and threat intelligence have now been added to the platform.
The new functionality further strengthens the cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) features. The extension of the Posture Control platform with ThreatLabz’s DLP and threat intelligence functionality ensures that the platform is the only one that can provide an accurate overview of potential cloud risks. It does this by correlating the risk impact and likelihood of an incident based on sensitive data discovery and security signals.
The resulting insights give DevOps and security teams a better understanding of the threats and therefore lets them better focus on problems that really matter. This helps with cost reduction and reduced use of needed resources, Zscaler states.
The new functionality helps development and security teams perform risk identification, correlation and ranking. The DLP and threat intelligence features help identify attack paths and discover attacks in progress. This by correlating possible misconfigurations or activities that are initially “low-risk,” yet ultimately have a higher risk.
In addition, the functionality offers greater efficiency at scale, including through the integrated graph-based engine for correlation and prioritization. This should speed up incident resolution and reduce so-called “alert fatigue” by focusing on the risks that matter most.
Also, Zscaler now helps merge previously separate functionality such as CSPM, CIEM, CWPP and DLP into one. This protects every step in the application lifecycle.
Furthermore, the comprehensive solution now provides a complete native end-to-end platform that eliminates silos. With Zscaler Posture Control, as previously stated, DevOps and security teams can gain a complete overarching view and insight of all risks for the entire multicloud footprint. Including vm’s, containers and severless workloads from start to finish.
The enhancements will be available in June.
