Cygna Labs : Mastering the Cloud Age Auditing Challenges

Arno Therburg, VP of Sales
Today, many organizations are undergoing digital transformation using initiatives that embrace hybrid cloud technologies. This transformation results in an increase of disparate systems and the overall volume of events. As a result, the tasks of correlating activities and reporting on them become exponentially more complex and time-consuming.

That’s where Cygna Labs can help. The company’s VP of Sales, Arno Therburg, mentions, “We came up with the Cygna solution to simplify the auditing process, making it easier for organizations to manage, analyse, and store sensitive on-prem and cloud audit data in the customers own environment, not under the control of a third party SaaS provider.”

Founded by a group of audit industry veterans, Cygna Labs’ wealth of knowledge and experience has provided it with a unique opportunity to build an audit platform for organizations that use hybrid systems from the ground up. As opposed to many other audit vendors who currently have legacy on-prem audit systems, the Cygna Auditor platform was designed from the beginning for the hybrid world. This includes a modern, simple-to-use web-based UI that provides organizations with unique control over their own data—the platform’s role-based access control (RBAC) scoping allows organizations to control which users have access to the important data; it does this by only providing certain users with access to the actions and data that is required for them to perform their tasks. Further, the Cygna Identity feature provides the ability to combine multiple user accounts from multiple data sources to a single, fast searchable identity.

One of the key aspects of the Cygna Auditor solution is that it allows customers to fully control their audit data. This provides organizations the ability to choose how long they wish to keep their audit information in either on-prem databases or in their cloud tenant, ensuring that data residency or regulatory compliance mandates are met. “Cygna Auditor simplifies the auditing process. Not only does it gather all the relevant audit information into a single view, but it also allows you to analyze multiple sources such as on-prem AD and Azure AD into one searchable audit view,” says Therburg.

“We translate raw audit data into a human-readable format and we can send the human-readable, enriched events to SIEM systems like for example Splunk.

No wonder that thirty percent of the 10 top retailers listed in the NFR Top 50 Global Retailers 2021 ranking are using Cygna as their solution for on-prem Active Directory as well as Azure/Microsoft 365 auditing. One of many examples of the company’s commitment to customers is Migros, a retailer in Switzerland. With more than 86,000 employees from more than 140 countries, it is the country’s largest private employer. As a customer of Cygna’s premier partner in Central Europe, n3k Informatik, Migros started using the Cygna Auditor in the PBMS version and is currently transitioning to the latest Cygna Auditor with the new innovative web interface.

The Cygna solutions not only cover key Microsoft technologies but have also expanded to other core infrastructure systems such as VMware and will soon be supporting multi-cloud solutions with AWS. The Cygna solution is constantly evolving with platform enhancements such as database segmentation which will allow organizations to accumulate and work with larger volumes of datasets across multiple databases served into a single user interface. The Cygna solution will make it easier for global organizations to use this feature for data residency issues or for high latency connections, allowing them to manage and scale their audit infrastructure like never before. “We at Cygna Labs are excited to help customers with our Cygna Auditor platform to “Master the Cloud age” auditing challenges,” concludes Therburg.
