Snowflake releases new cybersecurity workload for cloud data platforms

Written by Thu 9 Jun 2022

At enterprises across the world, conversations about how to best deal with the rise of cybersecurity challenges are regularly happening. Cyber criminals are becoming increasingly resourceful and the growing range of potential attack vectors is making securing networks from attack even more difficult.

In a bid to support businesses on their journey to protect themselves from hostile cyber actors, cloud computing–based data warehousing company, Snowflake, has launched a cybersecurity workload that gives firms access to a unified, secure, and scalable data platform. Security teams can use this to find and remove blind spots and respond to threats at cloud-scale effectively.

“Snowflake is leading the security data lake movement, helping defenders bring their data and analytics together in a unified, secure, and scalable data platform,” said Omer Singer, Head of Cybersecurity Strategy, at Snowflake.

“With Snowflake’s Cybersecurity workload, we further empower security teams in the Data Cloud so that they can collaborate with diverse stakeholders and succeed in their vital mission to protect the enterprise,” he adds.

With research from Forrester finding that more than half (55%) of security professionals report that their business has faced an incidental breach related to supply chains or third-party providers over the past year, the release of this new cybersecurity workload comes out an important time.

A diverse range of customers, including Dropbox, TripActions, Figma, Netgear and Clari, all use Snowflake’s cybersecurity workload. Powerful analytics solutions are also supported by this new solution and enable customers to create a strong ecosystem of applications that establish comprehensive security capabilities.

Gaining visibility over what can often be complex and desperate third-party solutions as well as in-house data is no small undertaking. Snowflake created this new workload in an effort to give teams unified visibility across a range of security related areas and reduce data silos that slow down organisations.
