CyberArk boosts privileged account security for AWS

CyberArk has developed security solutions for privileged accounts for Amazon Web Services (AWS), and the company says it will help customers protect, detect, and respond to advanced threats.

At a time when many organizations have at least part of their cloud operations, CyberArk said that by 2024 more than 80% of the costs will run on cloud architecture. This causes various concerns about cyber security, particularly in identifying user information and application.
The user privileges and preferred applications are used to manage the console, allow the application to connect with sensitive assets and productively dynamically distributed production environments, according to the company.

"CyberArk provides flexible and secure protection for cloud environments. These new features provide greater confidence in security teams to ensure that privilege-related policies are applied systematically in the enterprise and extended their AWS business environment," said Roy Adar, Senior Vice President, CyberArk.

New solutions can detect and rotate credentials based on company policy, monitor and record privileged access.

CyberArk Discovery and Audit simplifies discovery and communication in areas of the AWS environment. Users can also secure and manage AWS passwords.

"CyberArk helps create an account with security privileges in cloud environments from scratch with automatic provisioning and continuous visibility during cloud migration and continuous management," says Adar.

Amazon quietly acquired AI security startup harvest.ai for around $20M

Amazon Web Services is to ramp up your security coasts. TechCrunch has learned that cloud computing e-commerce services group has quietly acquired cyber security company harvest.ai.





The San Diego-based company, co-founded by a team that includes two former NSA employees, uses machine-learning and artificial intelligence to analyze user behavior around a company's IP key to identify and stop Targeted attacks before valuable data.

We were alerted to the acquisition by an informant who said that the purchase price of harvest.ai was 19 million - a good performance, bearing in mind that the start-up has only raised $ 2.3 million. The forecast also said that the 12 employees of the team moved to the Amazon headquarters in Seattle.

Amazon said TechCrunch, in response to our questions about how to start, that does not comment on rumors and speculation. Co-Founders harvest.ai, in contact with this agreement, did not answer our questions.

However, we have several evidences that indicate an acquisition.

- A second source who wishes to remain anonymous says the case is closed. The source added that the value was closer to $ 20 million.

- Trinity Ventures, the initiator of the start-up, note harvest.ai is "acquired" on the portfolio page, but does not specify by whom.

- Another investor in the start-up, Kelly Perdew LA Capital Moonshots, also listed the company as "acquired by undisclosed" on their LinkedIn page.

- Several ex-harvest.ai software developers are already listed as AWS employees on their LinkedIn pages - both from the AWS in April 2016.

None of the co-founders cites Amazon as a workplace on LinkedIn (not available to the public), but we have been able to uncover evidence that two of the co-founders, Anna Zelenak and Alex Watson (married) in the year 2016 moved to Seattle, where the seat is Amazon. A third, Jenny Brinkley, Amazon lists as its pattern in the database contributions policy.

Harvest.ai had already been an AWS customer, offering in its "Spotlight Startup" series, whose aim is to promote the platform for entrepreneurs who are scaling companies with limited resources.

The Twitter account startup seems to have stopped chirping in March of last year - the same month there was also a change in the domain name registration to its previous name. (The registration of the domain name harvest.ai seems to have changed in June of last year).

The flagship product Harvest.ai, patent pending, is named Macie Analytics. Uses AI to monitor how a client's intellectual property is accessible in real time, evaluate the viewer, copy or move individual documents, and where they are when they do, to identify suspicious behavior patterns information and possible data breaches before they occur. It charges the service as a way to fight the risk of internal attacks.

"Macie can automatically identify the risk for business data being displayed or shared outside the organization and the correct policy-based almost in real time," he wrote on his website.

"Macie integrates with its cloud systems and on-site, by examining connection patterns, remote access to the network, access to data and documents to detect attacks and prepare a complete application for a thorough review .

The launch launched its service in March 2015, when it also renamed its old name of 405Labs and detailed its seed cycle of 2.3 million. According to CrunchBase, the company was founded in September 2014. (One has to wonder if the inspiration of the founders came from ASN traitor Edward Snowden, sweeping all the classified material from his former employer in 2013 ...)

As for how Amazon AWS can apply crops, there are a couple of areas.

The first one is in the security features of the Amazon service. AWS already offers built-in security features and tools to users of its cloud service platform. While there are third parties that offer security features for cloud services, Amazon also moved in this area, considering how important it is to be trusted by customers to lock their key business assets.

as demand for AI engineers continues to run well over capacity across the tech industry.

Oracle Keeps Saying it Can beat Salesforce and AWS, but Numbers Say Otherwise

Oracle Corp. Believes it can beat Salesforce.com Inc. and challenge Amazon Web Services, but the numbers do not seem to support that swagger.

Oracle ORCL, -0.05% gave an update on its 10 million career with Salesforce CRM, -1.54% on Thursday, showing revenues from its cloud business surpassed 1,000 billion for the first time the second fiscal quarter, Thanks to 62% - year-on-year. In the first half of fiscal 2017, Oracle reported $ 2 billion in total cloud revenues, at a rate of 61%, figures that include your company's infrastructure as a growth service.

Salesforce, which was founded as a cloud software company, recorded quarterly revenues of $ 2.14 billion in its most recent quarter, with a 25% growth rate. CEO Marc Benioff Salesforce recently predicted that over 10,000 million turnover for fiscal year 2018, projected a rate of about 21% growth.


Oracle must have its fastest growth rate to reach US $ 10 billion in the first place, but continue to grow cloud revenues even at the rate of about 60% will not get there before Salesforce.

"We can beat them at the $ 10 billion mark, but it will be close," said Larry Ellison, co-founder and CEO of Oracle, in a conference call on Thursday. "We are reaching out to them, Let's reach out for them very quickly. "

This account is also the infrastructure company as Oracle service, which is actually not a "software" cloud, but offers remote computing power Amazon.com AMZN like, -1.02% Amazon Web Services. Ellison also took a fight with AWS this year, a challenge in his annual OpenWorld introductory speech, but Oracle seems far behind in this battle.

Oracle cloud services increased by 6% to $ 175 million in the second quarter, while AWS increased by 55% to 3.23 billion in its most recent quarter. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said he expected AWS to reach $ 10 billion in annual sales this year.

Again, Ellison did not back away from a fight that Oracle seems unlikely to win directly.

"[The IaaS offer] is very, very well received," he said. "Of course, the real test is how can we do better than Amazon? ... And we think we can. And that will make us very, very competitive. "

Oracle seems more likely to face the AWS Amazon pressure rather than the reverse. AWS is launching new software products at an incredible pace, and can give customers who use their remote servers break the price on the growing number of software packages offered.

Oracle has made tremendous progress in the cloud, thanks to a wave of acquisitions have resulted in the recent agreement of 9,300 million for NetSuite. He even said Thursday that sellers no longer receive commissions for the sale of local software applications, but employ small sales teams "SWAT" working with existing customers to add to existing contracts.

The progress made by Oracle seems less impressive, however, when it comes to fighting opponents who have focused on the cloud for longer and have a great advantage. Despite all its swaggering and spin, Oracle still has a long way to go.

Amazon Go Means More than Just Job Losses, it will Rstructure the Economy

Amazon launched a real-world store that allows customers to walk, take what they want and leave. There is no money, no queues. As explained in the FAQ on Amazon Go:




Our non-cash shopping experience is made possible by the same types of technologies used in autodidact cars: computer vision, sensor fusion and deep learning. Simply walk to Our technology automatically detects when products are removed or returned to the shelves and stored in a virtual shopping cart. When you have finished shopping, you can leave the store. Shortly thereafter, it will be charged to your Amazon and will send you a receipt account.

This new business model is not only a challenge, established traders, but raises serious questions about the future of labor and the changing nature of the economy in general. In addition, it suggests that the role of the government will change, which implies less with the regulation of companies and more with the redistribution of wealth.

At this point, the store is only available to Amazon employees, although public versions must be opened in the US. In early 2017. An Australian version is probably a bit later. In fact, Amazon is preparing to launch a number of services in Australia, such as AmazonFresh, a grocery delivery service.

All these are prone to shake up the different posters (Coles / Woolworths, David Jones / Myer) dominate some retail sectors in Australia, but Amazon GB is likely to be the real disruptor.

The consequences for employment seem obvious. In the United States, about five million people are employed in retail trade, while Australia has 1.3 million and Britain has $ 2.8 million. Id, so, stores like Amazon could mean major job losses. Retailers can achieve savings of something in the order of 15% in operating costs, an amount that is likely to be very attractive technology. And, in fact, it's just the next logical development of automated funds already in use at most supermarkets or self check-in McDonald's already unfolding.

Of course, Amazon Go can also create work, probably, value-added services related to things such as return process or gift packaging, but that is unlikely to offset other job losses. It will also require people involved in inventory control and logistics, again, not much. Amazon is already well advanced in using robotics to do these things, with years of experience developing these technologies in their "satisfaction centers" (the name of fear they use for their stores).

So, anyway, it's hard to see how an operation like Amazon Go ultimately does not mean fewer jobs.

Is everything bad? Of course not. That is, there are no waiting lines or payment and shipping? From the customer's perspective, what more can you ask for?

Amazon Go is another growing problem as well. It has not been a concern for some time that cities and other retail outlets dig as people buy more and more online but imagine if all of the grocery stores were like Amazon GB No queues. It is easy to imagine a bustling city or a suburban center where people come to buy the things they want are less stressed and are therefore willing to stay in public spaces by listening to street musicians or drinking coffee. Who knows what other services may prevail?

But there is one more important point to make.

Amazon GB, with companies like Uber, Airbnb, Netflix, and even Google and Facebook, are part of a fundamental restructuring of the economy and the work that goes with it. It is not simply that technology is losing jobs. It changes the relationship between companies and employees, governments and citizens.

We pass a globalized world of global giants making a giant network technology.

In the first, the government's role was to coordinate and create local and international markets, as well as to define the rules under which we have all performed. The companies themselves tend to do one thing - which cars, for example - and benefited from a permanent full-time workforce. This provided the security and prosperity of an important middle class.

In the networked world of technology companies, companies are no longer independent silos that are one thing. They tend to be one
That is to say, by breaking the link between survival and work, UBI allows us all to not only benefit from the technology, but to reinvent what we even mean by the concept of work.

Aside from climate change, this reinvention of work is the most wicked problem facing humanity, and we can see the unease it causes reflected in the politics surrounding Brexit, and of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn and Pauline Hanson. What all these politicians have in common is they promise to “bring back the jobs” because they understand how important a decent job is to most people.

But developments like Amazon Go are a sharp reminder of how hollow such promises are. Our societies are being transformed right before our eyes. Automation is increasingly displacing human workers and so the politicians we need are not those playing on our insecurities by conjuring an image of the past, but those who can offer us a realistic vision of what comes next.
