Identify Cloud Security Issues Before They Lead To Critical Incidents

Migration of workloads to the cloud continues to increase the challenge of defending against the latest threats. 

Picus Cloud Security Validation (CSV) helps security teams keep pace with cloud security posture management by identifying common cloud misconfigurations and overly permissive IAM policies - the two primary causes of cloud data breaches.

How Picus Strengthens Your Cloud Security

Due to the rapid pace of digital transformation, the complexity of cloud environments, and human error, critical cloud security gaps can arise daily. Picus Cloud Security Validation helps you quickly identify and address cloud security exposures to achieve a proactive approach to cloud security posture management (CSPM) and cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM.)

Secure Services Across Cloud Environments and Containers

Picus Cloud Security Validation provides the support you need to secure workloads across Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure (Azure) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Cloud misconfigurations can leave your services and data exposed to attackers. Picus Cloud Security Validation audits AWS, Azure and GCP services to proactively identify and prioritize risks.

Schedule regular cloud security audits to stay on top of cloud security posture management and respond to risks sooner.

In the event attackers are able to access your cloud environment, they will likely attempt to access critical systems by escalating privileges.

To ensure that your policies follow the principle of least privileges (PoLP), Picus CSV gathers cloud resources and simulates cloud attacks in a Local Policy Simulator.

Picus Cloud Security Validation doesn’t just identify cloud risks. It also provides the insights you need to understand their severity and respond to risks sooner.

Built-in dashboards enable you to track improvements to your cloud security posture and prove your maturity.


Harden Kubernetes to Secure Your Containerized Applications

If your organization is using Kubernetes to deploy and manage applications in containers, then it’s crucial to assess its security regularly. The dynamic and complex nature of containerized architectures means that weaknesses in the way clusters are configured can easily arise.

With Picus Cloud Security Validation, you can stay on top of container security risks by proactively identifying misconfigurations and by alleviating the time it takes to harden nodes, pods, and policies.

Frequently Asked Questions

In today's digital world, organizations are rapidly adopting cloud technology to operate more efficiently and effectively. However, with this trend comes a new set of security challenges. Simple misconfigurations or excessive privileges can easily go unseen, opening doors for attackers to exploit.  In contrast to on-premises environments, there are often no security controls in place in cloud environments to protect wrongly configured resources from being exploited. This is why it’s running regular cloud security assessments to identify and mitigate gaps is important.

Constant changes within cloud environments and the frequent discovery of new attack techniques mean that organizations’ cloud security postures can change regularly. Scheduling cloud security audits and cloud attack simulations on at least a weekly basis will help you to identify and address issues before they lead to serious security incidents.

Yes. Picus CSV supports Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Container security is focused on the protection of containerized workloads.  

Today, more and more organizations, are choosing to run applications in containers because of the flexibility and scalability it offers. However, if not configured properly, containers can be used by attackers to s to compromise apps, users and data.
