The Nightfall blog is a knowledge base for cybersecurity professionals with news and insights from the world of cloud security.

There are many stories worth sharing this month, including:

Nightfall live webinar and new PHI detector demonstration

We’re introducing a new detector to the Nightfall platform. Named the PHI detector, this new detector is designed to allow you to zero-in on violations specifically involving HIPAA defined PII in combination with health information without having to manage multiple individual detectors. Join us on Thursday 1/26 at 10 AM PT for a webinar and live demonstration of the detector. The first 50 registrants will receive a free Nightfall t-shirt!

Nightfall Advanced Secrets Detection feature now available

Today, we’re introducing advanced secrets detection to the Nightfall platform. Our existing API detector has been re-tuned to individually identify secrets from the top 25 most popular services like AWS, Square, Alibaba, and others, with support for even more vendor secrets forthcoming. When Nightfall’s API detector finds a secret, you’ll now be notified about which service the secret is associated with as well as whether or not the secret is live. This functionality is intended to help improve and expedite your remediation workflows. Watch our demo or read our new blog post to learn more!
