JupiterOne is a cyber security asset management and compliance platform. Below is our recent interview with Erkang Zheng, CEO & Founder of JupiterOne:
Q: For those who have never heard of it, how would you describe JupiterOne?
A: Assets are more than just endpoints and servers. Assets today include everything from workloads, APIs, VMs, instances, and apps, to code, code commits, endpoints, datastores, and everything under the sun. JupiterOne takes all of your cyber assets and collects then, normalizes them into a one of a kind directed graph model, and uses this to help enterprises answer any security or infrastructure related question they may have. You can think of it as “Google” for your security and compliance infrastructure.
Q: You’ve recently raised your new funding round; can you tell us something more?
A: We were incubated inside of a healthcare company. Our founder, Erkang Zheng, was the CISO of a company called LifeOmic and was tasked with the security of that infrastructure. He was not impressed with any available tools that claimed to help him understand his assets and infrastructure. There was no real way to provide security and compliance over your entire modern infrastructure and he didn’t want to buy a half a dozen individual tools. This was how JupiterOne was born, out of a real need in a real company.
Q: What are the key benefits of using JupiterOne?
A: JupiterOne has four key benefits:
Visibility into your cyber asset inventory: We offer visibility across cloud, human, and digital operations through direct integrations with dozens of providers and services. Our solutions automate the discovery, security, and compliance for your global cyber asset inventory.
Threat and risk reduction: We allow you to ask questions of your inventory to discover unknowns, gaps and vulnerabilities at their source. This makes your data work for you, not the other way around with rapid querying of up-to-date asset data.
Significant cash savings: Less is more. We reduce overall asset inventory costs and maintenance overhead with JupiterOne’s apps and technologies. This means doing more with fewer resources while lowering your costs.
Achieve compliance quickly: We speed up evidence collection and enable continuous controls monitoring by mapping data to requirements. This helps customers satisfy compliance goals faster and more accurately than ever before.
Q: Can you tell us something about your pricing?
A: Sure! JupiterOne is priced to fit and grow from the smallest startup company to the largest enterprise. We even have a free tier where companies can use the JupiterOne platform for nothing for an unlimited period of time. JupiterOne scales as you grow your business. We believe that security should be possible at every company of every size and our pricing fits that belief.
Q: What can we expect from JupiterOne in next six months?
A: We plan to triple the size of the company by the end of 2021 with revenue growth to match. We plan to work with our marquee customer set to continue to expand our features to deliver the premier cyber asset management, security, and governance platform we can. In the long run we will be the “Google” for your security and infrastructure assets.
