The SaaS product makes it easier for cloud-first companies to monitor and manage their AWS alerts and logs

Expel, the managed detection and response (MDR) provider committed to making cloud security as accessible as the internet, announced the launch of its first SaaS product: Expel Workbench ™ for AWS

Expel Workbench for AWS is a “simple” button for monitoring and investigating potential security risks in an AWS environment.It takes your AWS logs and alerts and shows you which risks are real risk (and why not everyone else)

“When you’re a cloud-based, fast-growing company, you focus on your customers and create a great product,” said Dave Merkel, CEO of Expel. “The thing is, your customers care about security Especially if you have some of your data you take care of it too, but the cost of going it alone is high and it’s a risky step. Why do you do this when you don’t have to? “

“That’s exactly why we introduced Expel Workbench for AWS, which is a simple and efficient way to keep track of your AWS Alerts and Logs without killing your team’s life (and time)”

Blackboiler, a legal technology company that uses its AI-powered contract markup tool to create contract efficiency solutions for businesses, law firms, and legal services providers, is using Expel Workbench for AWS to reduce the time it takes to investigate the team into potential incidents, “Security is everything.” for us because our reputation is built on it, “said viruses Shah, director of engineering at Blackboiler” The greatest value of Expel Workbench for AWS is the automated correlation of supplemental data and information about an investigation that is accessible and easy to understand when I read this With context at hand, I save hours of research that I would have had to do alone “

Our SOC-as-a-Service feature provides 24/7 security monitoring and response for cloud, hybrid, and on-premises environments. We use the security signals our customers already own to help businesses get more value from their existing security investments We remotely connect to customer technology through APIs rather than agents, so our SOC can start monitoring the customer’s environment in a matter of hours, so internal teams can focus on the most strategic security priorities that are unique to their business For more information, see http: // expelio

As a member of r / WallStreetBets, a popular Reddit forum, I want to tell you this: It should never happen, and our lucky group of rag-tag investors should and not use our little corner of the internet to exchange risky stock investment ideas knock out one of America’s most famous hedge funds Source: Mehaniq / Shutterstockcom But here we are. Over the past week, traders reading WSB and other forums have taken GameStop (NYSE: GME) and a host of other sharply trimmed stocks to insanely high levels , bankrupted at least one hedge fund and made multiple platforms cease trading Wall Street’s reaction was so stubborn that Congressmen Ted Cruz and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, long-time sworn enemies, even wagged their tongues in a coordinated manner (Twitter wiggle?) the U made S. Financial system But when Citadel picks up the pieces from Melvin Capital and Reddit users find their next short squeeze target, people start asking, “What’s next?” Taste Let me be clear: you won’t find my posts on r / WallStreetBets As much as I read and enjoy the platform, my work and ethics prevent me from talking about stocks I own (Sorry, Elon Musk I wish I would be you) Wall Street Bets was always about having fun.Many of the posts are deliberately dumb – think out-of-the-money calls to failed retailers – and there are plenty of contributors showing screenshots of life savings That Go to Zero Profitable or not, it was all about finding the joys and absurdities of market speculation. Back in November, GameStop was one of those fun little ventures and for the subreddit dubbed “4chan Finding a Bloomberg Terminal” it all seemed GameStop fans cheered the buyers while cursing Melvin Capital for selling the stock short, all in hope ng to make America’s favorite pastime a reality: make a lot of money with as little effort as possible. But then Citron Research changed everything Citron Research? Meet r / WallStreetBets on Jan In 19, well-respected short seller Andrew Left finally managed to get the wrong target. A longtime Wall Street outsider, Mr. Left made a name for himself by exposing companies like Valeant Pharmaceuticals, whose executives pegged and skyrocketed the prices of life-saving drugs. He would have made a great WSB contribution if he’d been willing to endure hate speech from 15-year-old But Then something happened The day before the President’s inauguration, Mr. Left announced that he would make an argument as to why GameStop stock was only worth $ 20 Perhaps Mr. Left was right to target GameStop, a shrinking company that still made $ 20 million for its executives Or he could have been wrong – at $ 20 GameStop would still be less than half the Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) worth if adjusted for sales But that didn’t matter a bit. Suddenly, GameStop became more than a money maker to Redditors, it became a way of fighting Wall Street greed now it was war How did WSB do it? In a financial system that rates a stock based on its last trading price, even tiny, odd-priced trades will re-evaluate a hedge fund’s entire stake. In other words, a few timely purchases can wreak havoc, especially on stocks with few sellers, and that’s exactly what GME does happened Until then, the short interest had remained relatively stable Market Maker, the basics of US. Financial system, did their job in matching orders and sales That changed on Wednesday when prices rose from $ 150 to $ 350 As market makers began to take hold, the markets began to go wild That meant problems for Robinhood On Wednesday, Robinhood stopped trading GameStop and nearly a dozen other companies “In order to protect our company and our customers,” CEO Vlad Tenev later told CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin, “we had to put restrictions on buying these stocks”Can Robinhood go under? In the world of trading, most conservatively-run platforms have no problem managing liquidity. As long as you have enough capital and disciplined margin requirements, your clearinghouse rarely forces you to raise new capital. But when it comes to Wall Street All financial firms seem to be running into the same problem – with your customers making that kind of money, it’s hard to resist the temptation to join them.Financial regulators have long known these Wall Street gimmicks.Banks from Bear Stearns to Barings all went down When trying to trade customer money as their own, with taxpayers and shareholders taking the baton, many more have experimented with minimal capitalization – only later to realize their catastrophic flaws over the years, wise governments have occasionally found the willpower to adopt such practices Ban and enforce strict margin and capital requirements (Often these rules are overturned by even wiser financial lobbyists) Today, many platforms are taking advantage of a loophole to lease client securities for a profit.And if GME shares can be rented to short sellers at a rate of 25%, there is a great temptation for these financial firms to see a double decline. Did Robinhood do that? Possibly Despite Robinhood claims that the trading break was proactive, the company was still pulling capital lines and banning users from buying more GameStop stock – a signal that Robinhood itself may be short of capital and stock (since Robinhood had a private Company, we may never know the truth) But will Robinhood get into regulatory trouble? Almost certain the company banned a dozen stocks from trading Wednesday during peak investment demand – reportedly because the company took time to raise new capital.As retail investors watched from the sidelines, hedge funds were being paid out at otherwise lower prices, literally Word has saved Robinhood institutions billions of dollars at the expense of investors Should We Be Afraid? When Wall Street picks up on the remnants of Melvin Capital and the GME fallout, two things became clear 1) “Stupid Money” isn’t that stupid after all, and 2) “Smart Money” is being put in the woodshed. Let’s first look at what they are Wall Street has long been called “stupid money” by retail investors. Most of these people are like you and me – they invest most of their savings in long-term retirement stocks while playing around with a small portion for fun aside from the cheerful Absurdity by r / WallStreetBets, most retail investors tend to know what they are buying (even if they sometimes get false reviews) The top 100 Robinhood stocks represent a wide range of consumer-related companies, their popularity and stock-related notoriety in the real world Second, the GME fiasco has revealed “smart money” for the absurd bets they sometimes take during a long sh ort hedge funds can help investors offset gains, they are often as bad at taking losses as what they call “stupid money” for example, Melvin Capital lost 30% of its net worth in the first three weeks of January but took another six days (after the stock gained another 250%) until the hedge fund finally gave up its mammoth position. Since then, other hedge funds have replaced Melvin in this high-stakes game of “Pass the Hot Potato,” as if trying to reassert r / WallStreetBets To Prove That Hedge Funds Will Always Try To Make More Money With Regular Investors If You Believe The Chances Are Right GameStop Also Unveiled The Revolving Door Behind Hedge Funds And Market Makers As Ken Griffin’s Citadel LLC, a 35 -Billion-dollar fund that rescued Melvin Capital, Twitter users were quick to point out that Citadel also has a market-making operation other than Robinhood served Where from here? Investors looking to hit the financial system should buy index funds and sit on them forever. You may not have the joy of seeing a hedge fund blown up, but retail fund companies like Citadel will find Income Dries up But for those looking to invest wisely, consider this With the newfound power of retail investors, you can expect short sellers to think twice about selling a company Andrew Left of Citron Research has already praised, never Publish Short Seller Reports Again Other Hedge Funds Are Watching Nervously That Means Hot Stocks Will Move Faster Than Ever As Reddit users learned this week, it doesn’t take much to sway stock prices if only marginal trading matters and no one there willing to share in the face of an angry mob sell, price spikes are becoming more common Expect many winners and losers After all, the stock market is mostly a fixed-sum game. However, the same truth still applies to long-term investors: the path to constant prosperity has always been to acquire a group of high-quality investments at a reasonable price Buy Practice this discipline with your core portfolio and you’ll have a lot of fun reading with me about the problems and difficulties of others on r / WallStreetBets.

For one, the scope for a brief press on silver is far less obvious: money managers have been around since mid-2019 a net long position on the metal, as futures and options data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission show, the market for silver is also much deeper in some ways than that for smaller stocks like GameStop, the brick and mortar video game trader, had a market cap of around $ 1 center January, before the Reddit craze drove the company’s value up more than 16x In contrast, London Vaults held 1 billion ounces of silver at the end of Nov 08, according to LBMA data that’s worth nearly $ 32 billion at current prices Why Reddit Traders Are Learning Commodities Are Not Stocks: Macro View What Beyond That Is Unclear How Long Retail Investors Have Been On Some prominent members of the WallStreetBets forum have already advised against it, and some have noted that Ken Griffin’s Citadel Advisors LLC, a popular bogeyman of the Reddit crowd, is listed as one of the largest shareholders in the iShares Silver Trust, whether or not that Rally faltering or not, it could have ramifications beyond a typical niche corner of the commodities world. As the first high profile target of the retail frenzy that starts trading on Monday, silver could set the tone this week for managers trying to measure, how the volatility fueled by Reddit affects their risk mod Momentum Trade “Last week’s events have shown that it is unwise to doubt the purchasing power of retail investors, and this has been sufficiently demonstrated in the silver market,” said Howie Lee, economist at Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. “You may find it a little harder to squeeze the silver market than with GameStop – the former is much bigger and more liquid – but the momentum seems to be with them right now.

It’s simple: Earnings have declined In fact, the latest earnings report was another case where earnings fell 6% to $ 20.4 billion OK, given that, why might it be a good idea for investors to consider IBM stock pull? For a variety of reasons.First, IBM plans to outsource its managed infrastructure services business to streamline operations.Next, the company has made bold acquisitions – for Red Hat, for example – to revitalize its technology product line.Then there’s the R&D role that the company has made strong invested in key areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), hybrid cloud and quantum computing, selling IBM stock at a reasonable price, forward price / earnings ratio is 108x, dividend yield is also 543%, which is one of the highest in the tech industry, Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) Source: Ken Wolter / Shutterstockcom Morgan Stanley has been in rally mode since the end of October Shares have risen from $ 48 to $ 68 However, MS shares are still trading at a discounted valuation.
