When it comes to having success in navigating the intricacies of the modern digital landscape, particularly the dynamic and ever-changing cloud environment, the synergy between security and operations teams is indispensable.

Security teams are tasked with safeguarding sensitive data and systems from evolving cyber threats, while operations teams focus on maintaining the efficiency and functionality of the IT infrastructure. The symbiotic relationship between these teams is crucial, as security measures must seamlessly integrate with operational processes to ensure a robust and resilient defense against cyber threats.

To bridge the gap between security and operations, Stream Security, formerly recognized as Lightlytics, unveiled an expansion into the realm of cloud security, marking a pivotal moment in the company's trajectory beyond its initial focus on cloud operations. This strategic shift is highlighted by the introduction of a real-time Cloud Twin (News - Alert) which redefines how security and operations teams identify and investigate potential threats.

Stream Security's technology intricately maps cloud dependencies in real-time, with the Cloud Twin continuously modeling the dynamic cloud environment. This capability allows organizations to gain a nuanced understanding of the real-time impact of each operation within their cloud infrastructure.

The Cloud Twin, through its capacity to unveil security gaps, scrutinize potential threats, pinpoint vulnerabilities and assess the outcomes of remediation endeavors, becomes a catalyst for heightened collaboration between security and operations teams. By providing a real-time, comprehensive model of the cloud environment, it enables a nuanced understanding of the impact of each operation within the cloud infrastructure. This proactive approach not only streamlines the detection and investigation of potential threats but also fosters a synergistic relationship between security and operations teams.

“Stream's Cloud Twin technology enables security and operation teams to collaborate like never before, minding exposure and environmental resiliency to streamline their collaboration," said Stream Security co-founder and CEO Or Shoshani. "This expansion marks a pivotal moment in our journey, broadening our scope to encompass cloud security solutions that revolutionize how CloudSecOps teams interact with their cloud environment."

In addition to the rebrand and the Cloud Twin introduction, Stream Security has unveiled three key features to enhance cloud security. The integration of Microsoft (News - Alert) Azure into the Cloud Twin extends coverage to multi-cloud environments, ensuring comprehensive security across platforms and modeling paths between different clouds. The platform now features Vulnerability Correlation, aligning vulnerabilities with exploitability levels for efficient security prioritization. Finally, advanced Threat Anomaly Detection in the Cloud Twin enhances Stream Security's capabilities, identifying malicious behavior and unauthorized access for an added layer of security sophistication.

"As Stream Security steps into its new identity and expands into cloud security, it remains committed to delivering innovative solutions that empower organizations to navigate the landscape of cloud operations," said Shoshani.
