How secure is your cloud?
The variety of cloud services leads to a very high complexity in an IT landscape. Each cloud provider, such as Amazon or Google, also has its own unique security features using different technologies. Microsoft 365, for example, has more than 800 security-related configurations. Even a single misconfiguration can lead to major consequences for your company.
However, the verification of misconfigurations is very time-consuming and complex. Especially when using multiple cloud services, it is difficult to control and manage security.
The solution for cloud security
The Cloud Compliance & Security Inspector (CCSI) is a platform-based application for assessing and monitoring security configurations in hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments.
CCSI verifies compliance to various standards and best practices e.g. NIST, CIS, ISO and provides comparable assessment results on the security settings of cloud environments from different cloud providers based on a standardized scoring system. In addition, the tool can be used for continuous monitoring of compliance with standards and requirements as well as user and authorization audits.
Features and benefits of the Cloud Monitoring Service
Automated monitoring of the multi-cloud environment provides real-time insights, showing status and details of the cloud environment's security controls. Controls of different domains are considered, such as identity and access management, data security, infrastructure security, and logging & monitoring.
CCSI verifies the compliance of the cloud environment with various standards and best practices including NIST, CIS, ISO as well as independent PwC Good Practices. Based on a standardized scoring system developed by PwC, comparable assessment results on the security of cloud environments from different cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.) are facilitated.
In addition to the automated benchmarking of the technical security configurations, the associated superordinated processes are identified, analyzed and evaluated. This ensures a fully comprehensive holistic view of the cloud environment.
You can audit user and privileged accounts and keep an eye on compliance status with the CCSI. Hundreds of built-in, automated controls are available in a flexible and customizable way - as well as the development of your own controls based on your individual requirements.
Comprehensive reporting gives you detailed insights into the security of your multi-cloud environment. This includes easy-to-implement quick wins as well as long-term strategic recommendations. We use the results to prepare a roadmap tailor-made to your specific needs.
