CLOUD & CONTAINER ASSESSMENT
It is possible to achieve vulnerability management in cloud, containers and virtualized environments with centrally managed solutions.
A Company Should Look at this Type of Solutions when You:
- Move to the cloud with virtualized or hybrid infrastructure
- Deploy containerized applications in cloud infrastructure
- Are unsure of risk levels for the workflows you have moved to the cloud and how they are best protected
- Want to improve security in the DevOps process and will create agility in the company
- Have limited internal skills and resources for handling container or distributed storage to Docker and Apache Hadoop.
- Move data and processes to the cloud and are unsure of hows infrastructure, application, and data security risks should be assessed
Companies increasingly utilize virtualized infrastructure with the benefits of digital development. The cost benefits are obvious, but require that access to IT security may change to to adapt technology and process differences.
C-cure offers innovative vulnerability capabilities for companies that move data to the cloud or to advanced containerized and virtualized architecture. This maximizes the benefits of cloud computing without compromizing IT security and compliance. Amazon AWS e.g. does not contain comprehensive security. IT assets must be protected by the company itself.
Managed Security 24/7
It is possible to get 24/7 monitoring of your cloud network against vulnerabilities.
Technologies for Security Testing of Infrastructure and Virtual Machines
With some solutions it is possible to benefit from patented technologies e.g. automatic security testing of the automatically detected infrastructure and assets, including VMs and security groups. You will be able to cover from virtual servers to web applications by using special technology. New servers are registered immediately and monitored without configuration, agentless. Even dormant events are checked, as these can provide "backdoor" access to your resources when they are restarted.
There is no overhead that can affect the performance of IT resources because it is possible to run a full vulnerability audit on clones of the virtual devices cloud. The cloning makes it possible to search and analyze deeper, without risk of damage or imparing performance of production.
It is also possible to control sleeping virtual machines by testing and waking up the clone, so the virtual machine is safe from the moment you turn it on again. this can especially be used where sleeping virtual machines are used as templates for new virtual machines. This prevents any vulnerabilities to be repeated throughout the organization when cloning.
Best Practice Hardening
Testing infrastructure, virtual machines and clones will enable you to eliminate configuration errors in the cloud and help you control for compliance to standards. This is done by following security benchmarks that provide vendor agnostic best practice suggestions, which help companies evaluate and improve the IT security. It is possible to get specially designed matrix that can provide basic security principles for cloud service providers, and help potential cloud customers assess the overall security risk for a cloud provider.
Vulnerability management is a must-have in all IT environments, but the workloads change fast in the cloud. With this type of technology you can make multiple recurring scans, full automation and deeper analysis. This solution will also uncover shadow workloads. Continuous analysis controls workloads installed within IT and compiles comprehensive overviews so that the CISO achieves complete visibility of the cloud services that are in use.
