What is Cloud Infrastructure Security?

Cloud computing security or, more simply, cloud security refers to a broad set of policies, technologies, applications, and controls utilized to protect virtualized IP, data, applications, services, and the associated infrastructure of cloud computing. It is a sub-domain of computer security, network security, and, more broadly, information security.

Challenges

Conventional cloud visibility tools have blind spots. The massive adoption of SaaS and cloud services has raised the need for increased security. Even more now, with every job becoming remote, engineering, DevOps, sales, finance, and other teams have to be able to access their code repositories, applications and data without risks. These are the main challenges:

Lack of visibility over who is using the SaaS applications, from where, and what they are doing and also the overall risk associated with cloud access and activity.

Impossibility of ensuring that remote workers and privileged users are following security best practices while accessing cloud services.

Weak security posture and difficulties of making sure that cloud data and SaaS apps are configured according to security best practices.

How can this technology help you?

The move to the cloud hasn’t solved the problems that existed in the pre-cloud era. Vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and compromised assets are still very much an issue. However, the cloud brings with it better ways to handle those problems.

Identify mistakes that lead to exposure of databases containing sensitive information.

Determine the administration of cloud resources; i.e. who is in charge around here.

Identify permissive or overly broad file sharing, dangerous third party application access, and other data risks.

Detecting policy violations via continuous cloud monitoring.

Advantages

Security Posture Management - SPM means managing the posture of your entire cloud deployment, throughout the technology stack. To live up to their name, SPM solutions need to be supplemented with deeper defense and threat detection capabilities to truly address all aspects of security and compliance for your workloads in the cloud.

Get continuous visibility into what users have access to and how they are using the SaaS apps. Quickly identify and investigate patterns of risky or suspicious behavior.

Get visibility of who has what privileges on each service, whether they are active or not, and how they are using these privileges, users with multiple inactive accounts and accounts without MFA or using basic authentication.

Get alerts about indicators of anomalous logins, SaaS persistence, data exfiltration, lateral movement, OAuth token abuse, and other external and internal threats discover instances of account compromise and unmitigated threats.

Define who can access the machine (its IAM roles), the networks it is connected to, logging policies, and disk level encryption.

Data Security - enforce data-centric security such as encryption, tokenization, access control, and information rights management.

Threat protection - detect and respond to negligent or malicious insider threats, privileged user threats, and compromised accounts.

Get a full-stack asset inventory for your entire cloud deployment.

Enable security teams to do their job without the enormous costs and organizational friction involved in deploying agents or network scanners.
