JupiterOne recently announced a pivotal expansion of their cyber asset analysis platform. This latest update is centered around catering to the rapidly transforming market that is embracing hybrid infrastructure and showcasing an increasing interest in asset visibility and analysis across various organizational departments.
Unveiling Three New Features
The expansion introduces three significant new features: J1 On-Premises Collector, Unified Device Matrix dashboard, and AI-powered natural language search. These enhancements extend the JupiterOne platform to both on-premises and private cloud environments, reflecting the changing demands of modern cybersecurity landscapes.
1. J1 On-Premises Collector
The J1 On-Premises Collector enables JupiterOne to delve into privately managed environments. By permitting the ingestion and analysis of asset data from both on-premises and private clouds, customers can significantly expand the scope of assets and infrastructure that they can manage within JupiterOne.
The importance of this feature lies in its ability to create a unified solution for protecting all assets, reflecting the evolving landscape where organizations are increasingly utilizing mixed infrastructure. It promotes a holistic view of the enterprise’s security posture.
2. AI-Powered Natural Language Search
The introduction of an AI-powered natural language search dramatically improves ease of use. The typical user can now ask questions like “Show me all laptops without anti-virus software installed” and have the AI translate that into a specific J1 query instantaneously.
This innovative approach not only makes JupiterOne’s asset insights more accessible to teams outside of security but also offers AI-driven remediation guidance. The move recognizes the shift towards inclusivity in cybersecurity responsibilities across various teams within organizations.
3. Unified Device Matrix
The Unified Device Matrix is an all-in-one device management dashboard designed to address the prevalent issue of errors and duplication in traditional device management solutions. This dashboard provides a reliable view of an organization’s devices, including crucial integrations for endpoint detection and response (EDR) agents, anti-virus software, and device management agents.
Aligning with Market Trends
Jeff Whalen, JupiterOne’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, emphasizes that the expansion reflects the philosophy of “security-by-design,” making JupiterOne easier to use and accessible across diverse infrastructures.
Similarly, Erkang Zheng, founder and CEO of JupiterOne, highlights the strategic importance of these enhancements, aligning with the company’s mission to “decentralize and democratize security.”
A New Era for Cybersecurity
These new developments signify more than just product enhancements. They represent a shift in understanding cybersecurity, moving from mere asset management to asset analysis, providing critical insights into an organization’s entire attack surface.
JupiterOne’s latest release is a recognition of the future of cybersecurity, where the traditional CISO role is evolving, and where complete visibility into assets becomes vital, irrespective of their nature or the technological skill set of the teams that manage them.

Riddle Me This
If you are in Las Vegas this week for the Black Hat Security Conference, you can chat with the JupiterOne team and learn more about the platform and the latest enhancements at Booth 1074.
I definitely suggest you do that, but you should also take the challenge of The Data Heist. JupiterOne has teamed up with Sounil Yu to host a cybersecurity whodunnit. This isn’t your typical cybersecurity conference party. It is a challenge—with a cipher you have to solve to even get an invitation and find out where the event is taking place.
