Stay Ahead of the Cloud Security Curve

Loaded with checklists, charts, and thought leadership from cloud security experts, the Agile Cloud Security: The Ultimate Handbook will help you discover how to slice through all the security noise with innovative strategies for pre-deployment, cloud security posture management, and detection and response.  


The most important questions you must answer at any given point in time

  • Which cloud assets and cloud components are publicly exposed, and is it expected?  
    • What’s the up-to-date vulnerability status of exposed resources?
    • What can be accessed from the exposed resources (in case of lateral movement)?
  • Is my Dev access path secured? (Console, Machines), who has permissions to what?
  • What access is given to third parties?

Cloud security & compliance is inherently complex because of the complexity of our cloud environments today

We use abstraction layers for agility and portability – more so in cloud environments than on-premises environments, but this comes at the cost of sacrificing visibility and an easy way to understand the full picture.

Cloud-native posture management is a term that we’ve made up for this handbook!

We believe this is a good term to include Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM), Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) and Kubernetes Security Posture Management (KSPM) as the main goal of these three emerging concepts is the same: manage cloud-native posture for security & compliance. Although all three concepts cover specific areas of cloud-native architectures, there is overlap between these concepts which is also reflected by the vendors who are active in this space.

Implementation tip for small teams

Most of the product packaging and pricing is designed for large enterprises in this space. Purchasing and running these standalone solutions can be high cost and labor-intensive, especially for small teams. We recommend covering these concepts through alternative approaches, one of which we’ll mention in the next section.
