CLOUD THREAT DEFENCE

The average customer’s traditional security tools are incompatible with the cloud, as they were designed for on-premises networks—and according to Gartner, 95% of cloud security failures through 2020 will be the customer’s fault.

The absence of a physical network boundary to the internet, the risk of accidental exposure by users with limited security expertise, decentralised visibility, and the dynamic nature of the cloud increases an organisation’s attack surface by orders of magnitude.

Cloud security is a shared responsibility between cloud service providers and organisations and which must result in visibility and control. Malicious actors are making use of stolen credentials and access keys which provides them with unfettered access to expensive and high-powered public cloud compute resources and is leading to increased crypto-jacking attacks.

Confidential data is moving to the cloud and organisations must prove compliance. Employing additional controls such as encryption and security frameworks, such as NISF CSF and CIS, is a necessity.

THE ISSUE

THE SOLUTION

A Cloud Threat Defence that provides Compliance Assurance, Security Governance and which enables organisations to identify vulnerabilities, detect threats, investigate current or past incidents, and auto-remediate is required.

Organisation that operate in highly regulated industries need to ensure and report on compliance by mapping cloud resource configurations to compliance frameworks such as CIS which can be challenging. Using out-of-the-box policies greatly assists these challenges.

Organizations also need to adhere to security policies which are imperative for managing risks. A Cloud Threat Defence solution detects and auto-remediate risks across resource configurations, network architecture, and user activities.


A Cloud Threat Defence solution also enables identified vulnerabilities and detected threats to be investigated and can provide auto-remediate of issues across an organisation’s entire cloud computing environment in minutes.
 

Addressed threats at a glance: 

  • Crypto-jacking

  • Cloud miss-configuration

  • Manual cloud posture assessment costs

  • Potential security risks investigation and resolution 

  • Reduced financial risk due to security breaches

  • Manual mapping of traditional compliance controls to public cloud

BENEFITS OF OUR APPROACH

  • Eliminate the cost, management and overhead associated with third-party cloud posture (penetration testing) assessments

  • Reduce time-to-remediation with actionable alerts prioritised by risk ranking

  • Eliminate the need for homegrown or third party SIEM systems

  • Significantly reduce the probability of economic, asset or brand loss due to security breaches in your cloud environments

  • Save time, resources and money with out-of-the-box compliance reporting based on industry standards such as PCI, NIST, SOC 2, HIPAA, CIS, GDPR, and more

  • Provide security and compliance teams continuous visibility into public cloud environments

  • Integrate automated remediation into development workflows
