Snowflake launches Cybersecurity workload

Snowflake has launched a new Cybersecurity workload that enables cybersecurity teams to better protect their enterprises with the Data Cloud.

Cybersecurity teams will be able to quickly gain visibility and automation at cloud-scale using Snowflake’s platform and extensive ecosystem of partners.

The threat landscape is continuously evolving; 55 percent of security professionals reported that their organization experienced an incident or breach involving supply chains or third-party providers in the past 12 months, according to Forrester.

With Snowflake’s Cybersecurity workload, customers can natively handle structured, semi-structured, and unstructured logs, efficiently store years of high-volume data, search with scalable on-demand compute resources, and gain insights using universal languages like SQL and Python.

Omer Singer, head of Cybersecurity strategy at Snowflake, said: “Snowflake is leading the security data lake movement, helping defenders bring their data and analytics together in a unified, secure, and scalable data platform. With Snowflake’s Cybersecurity workload, we further empower security teams in the Data Cloud so that they can collaborate with diverse stakeholders and succeed in their vital mission to protect the enterprise.”

Customers like CSAA Insurance Group, DoorDash, Dropbox, Figma, and TripActions are leveraging Snowflake’s Cybersecurity workload to unify data, gain near-unlimited visibility, and combat threats faster with analytics.

Prabhath Karanth, senior director of security, compliance and trust at TripActions, said: “With Snowflake as our security data lake, we are able to simplify our security program architecture and remove data management overheard. Deploying a modern technology stack from Snowflake is a pivotal piece of our cybersecurity strategy.”
