Quality workload cloud security recommendations

Top rated workload cloud security tips and tricks{||| today| right now| 2022| from SonraiSecurity? Complex permission chains have become a very attractive attack vector. Knowing what can access what requires a continuous, unified graph of activity, privileges, and potential access. Sonrai is purpose-built to understand every identity’s effective permissions and enforce least privilege. Sonrai’s graph will map every permission, no matter how complex, and is the only CIEM platform that achieves this. A simple “no” answer to “is my datastore public?” used to be good enough for point-in-time CSPM solutions. Today’s dynamic clouds are much more complex than that. Periodic checks don’t support modern security posture anymore. Discover even more info on Least Privilege. Out-of-the-box remediation: Advanced workflow capabilities and a library of custom remediation and prevention options – including prebuilt and custom bots – mean things get fixed fast.

An identity can use multiple different capabilities to create a path to data or change its initial privileges. Assuming a role, they can use the role’s privilege escalation capabilities to access a new right to change privileges, and then from there change the permissions of their original group. While cloud or IAM providers show discrete permissions, and even certain excessive permissions, Sonrai monitors and reveals effective permissions, which account for multiple complex lateral movements. Without Sonrai, these complex paths remain hidden and represent enormous enterprise risk. Maintain least privilege in the right places.

Enterprises in highly competitive markets are rapidly scaling in the public cloud, with 76% of these businesses saying that this scaling is critical to their success. From a newly commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Sonrai Security and Amazon Web Services (AWS) entitled “Identity Controls Are Central to Enterprise Plans for Cloud Security,” 80% of decision-makers surveyed note that the increase in cloud migrations is requiring a new set of security solutions with 74% of firms believing cloud migrations require new IAM solutions.

Always know who accessed what data and when: The point-in-time analysis approach fundamentally misunderstands the nature of modern cloud, which relies on ephemeral compute that disappears between scans and adheres to always-on compliance standards. Sonrai eliminates this problem and provides security teams with a complete, continuous picture of the true status of their security posture that enables enterprises to stay on top of cloud risk in real-time. Continuously monitor activity logs, cloud assets, and configuration: Sonrai captures and monitors serverless functions that only exist for a few minutes and have their activity tracked and understood, preventing any circumventing of detection that a point-in-time CSPM would miss.

Identity is the new perimeter. Sonrai makes sure your perimeter has no holes. Sonrai is the only source for comprehensive intelligence on identity-to-data pathways at the enterprise scale. Our proprietary, big data analytics engine continuously updates every complex path an identity has used or could use to access data — no matter how many relationships and inheritances are involved — to offer visibility that’s always rooted in full context and actionable understanding. Sonrai gives you a clear picture of all activity, all relationships, and all identities in your cloud. See everything, connect everything, and build a solid foundation for your cloud security.
