Simpler cloud security posture management

Reduce risks and meet compliance requirements without overwhelming your security team.

Read Solution Brief

Old methods can’t match cloud speed

Modern DevOps practices will always outpace outdated, manual security practices.

Disparate tools make visibility difficult

What if, through automation, you could continuously assess security and compliance posture from a single place?

Lack of context can slow down assessments

What if you could prioritize your most harmful misconfigurations and compliance violations based on real world attack behavior?

Proving compliance requires time-consuming processes

What if you could quickly provide security assurance to stakeholders with predefined and custom reports?

Common questions about CSPM

What is cloud security posture management (CSPM)?

A core element of a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP), CSPM provides the needed visibility to assess risk properly. This functionality allows you to accurately and continuously assess your risks due to misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and compliance violations. You can validate your posture against industry best practices and prove compliance with customers, auditors, and others.

Why is security and compliance for cloud native resources hard for many organizations?

It is challenging to build a consistent security and compliance posture due to the ephemeral nature of cloud-native resources. Misconfigurations of cloud assets are common and can expose data or leave you open to attack. In addition, manual security practices and processes cannot keep pace with cloud environments.

What are CSPM best practices?

Follow this CSPM checklist to build a strong security posture:

  • Conduct an inventory of your cloud assets to understand what you have
  • Automate security policy controls to prevent misconfigurations and reduce risk
  • Validate your security and compliance posture against industry benchmarks and best practices
  • Embed checks into developer pipelines by scanning IaC templates for misconfiguration
  • Quickly address the most urgent cloud security misconfigurations, so you start your compliance journey with a solid baseline
