Datadog Announces General Availability of Security Monitoring
New security monitoring product breaks down silos between security, dev and ops
Highly scalable and dynamic modern cloud applications are also highly complex to secure and require close coordination between security engineers who monitor threat signals and developers and operations teams who make frequent changes to the applications. Additionally, the rise in sophistication and speed of attacks also means that these teams need means for newer, faster ways of detection and thwarting of threats.
Datadog’s Security Monitoring combines and analyzes traditional security signals with performance and environment data from applications to provide unique real-time insights. This allows the security, dev and ops teams to rapidly identify security issues, pinpoint the affected system and perform remediation quickly.
The key features of this new offering include:
- Unified observability and security: By combining data from traditional security logs with over 400 integrations that bring in performance metrics, traces, environment information and more, Security Monitoring detects threats quickly and provides detailed context to pinpoint affected systems
- Real-time, out-of-the-box threat detection: With turn-key threat Detection Rules to flag attacker techniques and misconfigurations, teams can immediately improve their security posture
- Cost-effective data ingestion and analysis: Security Monitoring detects threats in real time across the full stream of ingested data at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions
- Simple, customizable rule-editing: Anyone can customize out-of-the-box Detection Rules or write their own without needing to learn a proprietary query language
Powerful, context-rich Security Signals:
Datadogretains security signals for 15 months, so teams can easily correlate them and identify trends over time, quickly filter signals by attributes like the MITRE ATT&CK® technique or any associated entities, and seamlessly pivot to other areas of Datadogfor further investigation
