So, what is Libwebp? Libwebp is a commonly used library used to render WebP images. WebP is a modern image format that provides superior […]
Filter Out the Noise And Focus on the Vulnerabilities that Actually Matter
We’re excited to release an important capability for our Runtime Vulnerability management. Starting today, you can view an end-to-end funnel of your vulnerabilities, apply critical filters to your vulnerabilities data and answer these tough questions within seconds:
- Is the package loaded into memory or actively in use?
- Is the package exposed to the Internet?
- Is remote execution possible?
- Is there active ingress or egress traffic related to the package?
- Does the package have access to sensitive data?
- Is there an available exploit for the vulnerability?
- Is a vendor-supplied fix available?
You can now customize your vulnerability reports and filter vulnerabilities that are in use, Internet facing, have a fix available and are exploitable – helping you rapidly filter and prioritize the alerts that actually matter to your organization.
Use Upwind’s Vulnerability Funnel to run custom reports by vulnerability, image or resource type and streamline your remediation by getting highly personalized alert information to the right members of your security team, in record time.
Leverage Runtime Data to Govern Your Database Network Access
We are excited to announce that Upwind has now added enrichment to RDS clusters and Google Cloud SQL in our context-rich topology map, leveraging runtime data to let you govern your database network access. The Upwind platform has always shown communication to RDS, but starting now, the map will drill down into the specific databases your assets communicate with and provide you with rich visualization and context on the topology map. Get even more visibility and view your RDS clusters and instances with mile-deep context, in real-time.

In order to solve a problem, you have to know how it started. In cloud security, getting to the root cause of threats and vulnerabilities is often a labor-intensive process that can take hours or even days, costing companies valuable time to remediation. To solve this problem, Upwind has expedited the investigation process, providing detailed […]

From my days on the basketball court to founding Sheva eighteen months ago, the journey has been nothing short of exhilarating. But one of the most interesting conclusions I’ve come to so far is the direct connection between sports and the startup world. When I hung up my sneakers and transitioned from basketball to startup […]
