Why Upwind?

Up·wind /ˌəpˈwind/

In the opposite direction to that in which the wind is blowing; against the wind.

In windsurfing, “Upwind” is a basic technique that allows surfers to navigate toward where the wind is coming from and the key skill to come back to where you started.

As a runtime security platform, Upwind enables security professionals to navigate effectively toward the root cause of security issues. Providing a powerful context of applications and infrastructure behavior despite the head wind of cloud chaos and alerting noise.
