Customer Stories

We’re appreciative of the customers who have allowed us to share their story, and hope you will get inspiration from reading about their journeys. Highlights include:

2021 – Looking forward to bigger, better, easier

“Bigger, better, easier for you: that’s our focus for 2021. Here’s how we plan to become the ‘google’ of your cybersecurity assets.” — Erkang Zheng, Founder and CEO

Bigger, Better, Easier: What does that mean for you?

Our focus in 2021 is to provide more data, more integrations, and more scale for the platform. A welcome addition will be “SandBox Data”, a data set that we provide for import, where you can run and test your queries. On our radar for new features and capabilities are historical data analysis, more real time data processing, Kubernetes, and container support with better compliance mapping.

The user experience and app experience are being made easier through refinements in the query language and enhancements to the query experience. Currently you can go to ask.jupiterone.com to access the query library, to see 334 prepackaged queries. We invite you to investigate those queries and then contribute to the library.

For 2021, we are working on ways for people to share their queries directly in the app. Sharing will be available with a click of a button. Your query will be sent to our team for evaluation and then populated into the library with full attribution to you for your contribution.

Our 2021 Commitment: Security as a Basic Right

It is a right, not a privilege to be secure. We are adamant that security should not be optional, it should not only be for companies who can afford a security team. It is a basic right of any development team and company. In 2021, we’ll continue to contribute resources to the community to make that possible. 

GitHub Repositories, Sample Queries and Insight Dashboards

We are building a community of users who want to share ideas around open source tools and best practices. Part of that community is figuring out the best ways to “Embrace the power of the graph.”

Here are some things we’re working on:

  • GitHub Repositories – There are 89 JupiterOne GitHub repositories that you’re welcome to use. If you find one of the repositories useful, let us know by participating with pull-requests and contributions.
  • Sample Queries – In 2021, we will expand the platform to accept your contributions queries, making them available to your peers. We currently have 334 prepackaged queries in the library. https://ask.us.jupiterone.io/.
  • Insight Dashboards – Create insight dashboards, export them and submit them to us for evaluation. If accepted, we’ll populate them into the library, giving you full attribution. When we accept one of your contributions, we’ll send you some cool swag as our way of saying, “Thank you”.  

Thank You For Being Part Of The JupiterOne Community

2021 is shaping up to be a banner year for us and the JupiterOne Community. We look forward to your participation either as a contributor or a consumer of our growing set of resources. You can reach out to us here, on LinkedIn and on Twitter to give us feedback and comments.

Please have a safe and joyful New Year’s.

We’ll see you in January… and beyond.
