Client Success Story - IaC - Near-Real-Time Cloud Account Visibility for Vuln Mgmt
The public cloud presents a greenfield opportunity to architect a fresh approach at managing assets and implementing security to audit a variety of emerging workloads. Robust public cloud platforms provide an API which enable tools to have visibility of the entire environment with less stress on traditional discovery methods. This client was looking for a means to bake in vulnerability management anytime a new account was created on their public account platform.
IaC tools build connectors between security tools and the public cloud service API to perform cloud object analysis, workload asset inventory and security configuration audits. Identify security vulnerabilities insecure configurations in infrastructure, platform, software as a service, and serverless cloud objects.
This enables the security team to identify, prioritize, and pass those findings into their enterprise operations management interface. Overall, this improves the effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability of reducing risk items found within the cloud environment.
