Prevent security gaps and dramatically reduce the effort required to ensure the cloud control plane is configured securely and stays that way.
Cloud security best practices are well documented but implementing them all can become an overwhelmingly complex task. According to Gartner Research, "through 2020, 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer's fault". This is directly related to control plane complexity and the challenge of configuration hygiene.
If your organization is using Amazon Web Services (AWS), you understand that the cloud control plane is a new piece of infrastructure that needs to be secured and this is primarily accomplished by implementing and ensuring good configuration hygiene. As organizations adopt infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and migrate workloads to the cloud, getting all of the configuration details right from the start is a foundational element to your most effective security.
SecureWorks Cloud Guardian makes it possible to establish and maintain secure configuration hygiene.
