Summary
  • Push is a security automation platform, built to make it easy for small and medium sized businesses to improve their security.

We are excited to announce that today we're opening the doors and inviting people to join our early access preview!

Push is a security automation platform that connects to the platforms most commonly used by small and medium sized businesses, recommends the most important and impactful security controls, and provides step-by-step guidance on how to enable them. Even better, rather than just leaving users to implement that guidance manually, it provides automations to help speed up the process.

Let’s say you need the users of a platform to take some action as part of rolling out a new security control (e.g. registering for multi-factor authentication). Messaging the whole company in an email gets ignored. Reaching out to everyone individually and tracking their actions is time-consuming. Instead, use our to automatically reach out to only the users that need to take action, with clear steps, and get notified when it’s done.

We built Push to help SMEs improve their security without breaking the bank or needing to deploy new solutions. Instead, we’re focused on helping businesses make better use of the security features in tools they already have. Our main design goal is to take as much work out of the process as we can.

We’ve put our heads together and picked out some of the most important controls that have the biggest bang for buck. We’re only focusing on controls that:

  • Are practical for SMEs to implement

  • Prevent attacks that are known to affect SMEs in the real world

We’ll be picking these controls off one at a time and making them available over the coming months.

First on the list is multi-factor authentication (MFA or 2FA) which Microsoft have said would stop “more than 99% of organisation account compromise”, and Google’s research suggested it prevents “100% of automated bots, 99% of bulk phishing attacks and 90% of targeted attacks".

As this is the first initiative of many to come, we’re offering access for free as part of our early access preview. So, if you're an SME and interested in rolling out MFA to users on your cloud platforms - request access here and we can help you get it done!
