Here’s to the real heroes within your organization. The builders and defenders of the cloud  who secure everything from internal infrastructure to the websites end users engage with. When they do their job right, no one notices, and as the year draws to a close we’d like to show our gratitude.

As a partner in critical risk prevention, there’s nothing more important to us than our customer’s success. We are grateful to work with some of the most innovative companies in the world, and we’re proud to share their stories. New to the Wiz family are IAC Inc., Linktree, Rippling, Coop and Assurant, and we’re thrilled to join them on their journeys to secure the cloud.  

Thirty Madison achieves better outcomes for its patients and its cloud

Thirty Madison is helping people living with chronic conditions receive a highly specialized healthcare experience. The fast-growing digital health company was seeking an agentless solution to extend the reach of its small cybersecurity team and gain greater visibility into its evolving cloud environment—including evaluating and securing its new subsidiary, Nurx. Thirty Madison uses Wiz to scan its infrastructure for vulnerabilities, identify cloud misconfigurations and secure its microservices. Operational overhead is minimal compared to traditional agent-based tools. “We had Wiz up and running within a day, which was huge for us. It gives us the visibility we need and has the power to support Thirty Madison through our rapid growth,” says Nimit Suri, Cloud Security Lead at Thirty Madison. Now dev teams can spend more time integrating new businesses into their environment and less time wondering if they are secure.

Bridgewater unifies its hybrid and multi-cloud security posture

Bridgewater delivers unique insight and partnership for the most sophisticated institutional investors worldwide. The premier asset management firm uses technology to validate and execute on its investment principles and relies on Wiz to understand its entire hybrid and multi-cloud environment. With the Wiz Security Graph, the Bridgewater security team is free from the manual work of compiling security reports and can concentrate on more strategic and impactful work instead. Wiz’s agentless solution and ease of deployment were critical to helping Bridgewater gain visibility into its connected cloud infrastructure. “We deployed Wiz to 200 accounts very easily and within hours, we had the full power of Wiz explaining to us what was going on in our environment,” says Rob Bruce, Head of Critical Infrastructure at Bridgewater.

Data security leader BigID prioritizes its own cloud security 

BigID enables organizations to manage sensitive and private data. But in order to secure and manage its customers’ most important information, it needed to ensure its own cloud environment was secure. Wiz gave BigID the power to pinpoint and address critical issues and misconfigurations across multiple clouds, while also reducing cloud debt and its attack surface. “After thoroughly analyzing competitors in this space, we found Wiz paramount in connecting our multi-cloud environment and provided advanced automation capabilities for alerting,” says Tyler Young, CISO at BigID. “Wiz helps us identify problems, analyze them, and automatically remediate those issues so we can focus on more advanced security tasks.”
