Milan, May 30th 2023 – S2E announces a partnership with Wiz, the leader in cloud security, as its first Italian partner to support companies in securing their Cloud platforms.
Known for its transformative Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), Wiz is a hyper-growth startup that raised an additional round of funding in February, enabling it to reach a current valuation of $10 billion. With the growing worldwide adoption of cloud technology, the need for security has never been greater. Wiz’s platform is well positioned to help businesses secure their cloud environments and address today’s growing security threats.
Andrea Cerro S2E CyberSecurity Business Unit Director said “Wiz is a cloud-based security solution that collects information without installing any components on the customer’s side. It is perfect for companies of all sizes, from those just starting their cloud journey to enterprises with deep cloud and multi-cloud maturity. Wiz provides a unique and comprehensive view of cloud security posture.”
“As organizations worldwide move to the cloud, Wiz is enabling them to adopt and embrace the new cloud security operating model,” said Trish Cagliostro, Head of Global Channels and Alliances at Wiz. “S2E will play a pivotal role in our growing partner ecosystem, helping to bring visibility, context, and ruthless prioritization to joint customers. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Wiz Partner Program.”
Wiz is built from the ground up to provide a simple, straightforward, and actionable approach to solving security in the cloud. Wiz enables customers to secure everything they build and run in the cloud by delivering three critical benefits:
- Visibility: Wiz scans every layer of your cloud environments (AWS, Azure, GCP, OCI, Alibaba Cloud, Openshift, and Kubernetes across virtual machines, containers, and serverless) to provide full visibility and context into every technology running in your cloud in minutes.
- Security: Wiz continuously prioritizes the critical risks based on a deep cloud analysis across misconfigurations, network exposure, secrets, vulnerabilities, malware, and identities to build a single prioritized view of risk for your cloud. We model this all on the Wiz Security Graph, which provides contextual insights, so you can proactively and systematically identify toxic combinations and remediate risk.
- Agility: Wiz enables security, development, and DevOps teams with tools to scale security across the development lifecycle. Wiz provides direct visibility, risk prioritization, and remediation guidance for development teams to address risks in their own infrastructure and applications with integration into the development pipeline to prevent issues from ever getting deployed.
Cesare Moroni, S2E CEO and Cofounder: “S2E has the distinction of being Wiz’s inaugural partner across the country. “This partnership equips us with in-depth knowledge of the platform, enabling us to set up demonstrations or points of view tailored to client settings. It provides insight into the existing security posture and allows for evaluating the platform in a practical context. Our understanding of cloud security challenges empowers us to efficiently enhance and expedite corrective actions in response to Wiz’s evaluations.”
Wiz was founded by CEO Assaf Rappaport, CTO Ami Luttwak, VP Product Yinon Costica and VP R&D Roy Reznik. The team has worked together for more than 20 years, including as leaders of Microsoft’s Cloud Security Group and as the founding team of Adallom, which was acquired by Microsoft for $320 million. Wiz scans every layer of the cloud to provide complete visibility and uses the security graph to eliminate noise and surface the most important risks. Customers can identify, prioritise and quickly remove risks in their cloud. This new approach to cloud security breaks the agent-based security model and uses an agentless, API-centric approach to scan cloud workloads. Wiz abandoned context-free alerts and replaced it with Wiz Security Graph which is at the heart of the product.
