Unlocking the Potential
For organizations leveraging cloud services to facilitate business growth, it is vital to have a comprehensive and up-to-date understanding of identities and access privileges. In a dynamic cloud environment, where numerous human and machine identities require access to a constantly expanding range of services and resources, it is crucial to evaluate and adapt policies and controls consistently.
As the scale and complexity of cloud infrastructure continue to expand, security teams face challenges in efficiently identifying, prioritizing, and resolving identity-related threats across a rapidly growing cloud attack surface without causing disruptions to business operations. With numerous components to manage, vulnerabilities arising from misconfigured cloud resources can easily evade detection and result in data breaches within the cloud environment.
To implement effective least privilege policies, gaining clear visibility into cloud infrastructure resources and their associated identities is crucial. Solvo’s IAMagnifier offers an automated visualization tool that identifies your cloud assets, including storage, compute assets, network assets, external accounts, and users. It also highlights the IAM roles and policies governing their access. By mapping and analyzing these connections, IAMagnifier presents users with a risk-based display, flagging excessive connections or sensitive data on cloud assets. Through simple queries, you can determine who can perform specific actions and access particular resources, enabling the creation of contextual least privilege policies. Solvo’s Policy Manager continues to profile each asset within your cloud infrastructure, monitoring application behavior and user activity. This allows for automatic policy updates, ensuring ongoing security.
Lack of visibility and control over the flow and use of sensitive data across multiple cloud platforms, data stores, and applications is a top concern for organizations. Solvo’s Data Posture Manager addresses these inquiries and offers a concise and practical visualization to assist you in resolving the problem. Your data assets will be presented and ranked based on the sensitivity of their content and the seriousness of the discoveries. This way, you can adjust security settings that align with the identified level of risk.
Using Solvo’s Compliance Manager, you can effortlessly establish compliance standards for well-known frameworks like HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GDPR, CCPA, and others. Moreover, Solvo allows you to create personalized policies and rules using the versatile Rego language and the Open Policy Agent (OPA).
- Create customized, automatically updated least privileged access policies based on the level of risk associated with entities, resources, applications, and data in the cloud.
- Proactively monitor, identify, prioritize, and remediate the most critical risks to your cloud infrastructure.
- Minimize cloud security alert fatigue and false positives.
- Reduce your cloud attack surface to innovate and securely grow your business.
- Create stronger alignment and improved collaboration between security, DevOps, and engineering teams.
In conclusion, as organizations embrace cloud services for business growth, it becomes imperative to have a comprehensive understanding of identities and access privileges. The dynamic nature of cloud environments, coupled with the expanding range of services and resources, necessitates a continuous evaluation and adaptation of policies and controls. Furthermore, the complexity of cloud infrastructure poses challenges for security teams in detecting and prioritizing identity-related threats without disrupting business operations. Misconfigured cloud resources can easily evade detection, leading to potential data breaches. However, Solvo’s key features and benefits offer solutions to these challenges allowing organizations to enhance security, data protection, and compliance in their cloud environments.
