Datadog has announced the launch of the Datadog Cloud Security Platform, adding full-stack security context to Datadog’s deep observability capabilities. This new offering enables organizations to use a single platform to correlate security insights with monitoring data across infrastructure, network and application tiers, providing security teams with the visibility they need to understand and respond to potential threats faster.
The Datadog Cloud Security Platform includes Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) which makes it easy to track whether your production environment complies with industry standards, such as PCI DSS, SOC 2 and HIPAA, and catches misconfigurations that leave your organization vulnerable to potential attacks.
Also, Cloud Workload Security (CWS) detects threats to your production workloads by monitoring file and process activity across your environments to help catch host and infrastructure-based attacks.
Security Monitoring identifies threats to your cloud environments by analyzing operational and security logs. As an easy-to-use cloud-native SIEM, Security Monitoring provides out-of-the-box security integrations and threat detection rules that are easy to extend and customize.
Application Security, currently in beta, provides protection against application-level threats by identifying and blocking attacks that target code-level vulnerabilities, such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting (XSS) exploits.
Unified Observability and Security Reporting allows seamless pivots between DevOps telemetry and security insights. According to the company, this unified experience enables security teams to understand the operational and business impact of security incidents, and DevOps teams to see security signals alongside the metrics, traces and logs of their services.
