OpsHelm's Products & Differentiators

    OpsHelm Platform

    OpsHelm’s cloud security platform goes beyond finding misconfigurations and automatically fixes them, with no time or effort required from our client teams. We’re tackling the headaches of keeping cloud environments secure and compliant and going a step further than the typical “identify and alert” process offered by traditional cloud visibility tools that require teams to spend hours on investigation and manual fixes. After getting connected in a matter of minutes with no engineering effort needed, OpsHelm proactively protects cloud environments through automated, context-aware guardrails that can be applied to environments, saving significant engineering time and cost and ensuring big and little mistakes are eliminated seconds after they occur. OpsHelm is currently in beta and accepting customers into our Early Access Program.

New Startup OpsHelm Tackles Cloud Misconfigurations

Nov 21, 2022

The company emerges from stealth with an automated security remediation product identifies and remediates cloud misconfigurations. PDF Some of the most common issues in cloud security involve misconfigured systems. Cloud servers may be mistakenly configured to allow anyone on the Internet to access the data. The firewall rules may have inadvertently created a hole big enough for a threat actor to slip through. These kinds of issues trip up enterprises on a regular basis because securing cloud infrastructure is labor-intensive and security operations rely heavily on manual processes to manage the complex environment. Enter OpsHelm , a cloud security startup which came out of stealth with its automated security remediation product on Thursday. The product monitors the IT environment looking for cloud misconfigurations and makes it possible to fix the issues in a seamless way. The tool integrates with common enterprise communications tools such as Slack or Microsoft Teams and informs the security operations team of the issues as they are found. The team can address the issues and the tool learns what actions should be taken so that it knows how to handle the situation the next time that issue comes up. "Companies attempt to solve this problem with enhanced visibility into their cloud infrastructure, yet this isn't enough--they are still stuck doing the time-consuming triage and remediation with their limited team resources," Andrew Peterson, co-founder and CEO of Signal Sciences and an investor in the company, said in a statement. The company says OpsHelm can detect and fix common cloud issues such as misconfigurations, overly permissive firewall rulesets, potential data exposures, unmanaged resources in Infrastructure as Code (IaC), credential sprawl, and unsecured assets exposed to the Internet. "For example, if S3 buckets are routinely exposed when you stand up new programs, you can eliminate all exposed S3 buckets in seconds and ensure that any new ones are instantly locked down the second they are exposed," Bill Gambardella, OpsHelm CEO and co-founder, wrote on the company's blog. Gambardella was previously COO at Leviathan Security Group and previously ran security at Sprout Social. Other members of the founding team include OpsHelm CTO Kyle McCullough, who was a platform engineer at Sprout Social; COO Bob Bregant and founding engineer Lee Brotherson. At the moment, OpsHelm integrates with Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services. Support for Microsoft Azure is “coming soon.” Currently in public beta, general availability is expected early next year, the company says.
