Cloud Security Validation 

Secure your workloads in AWS with automated 
cloud assessment and attack simulation



Challenges of AWS Cloud Security 

If your organization has workloads in Amazon Web Services (AWS), it’s vital to ensure that they are secured properly. AWS cloud attacks often occur because organizations fail to follow AWS’s Shared Responsibility Model and identify cloud misconfigurations.

Common AWS misconfigurations that can lead to cloud security data breaches include:

                                        Open S3 Buckets           Misconfigured IAM policies          Unrestricted access to resources


How Picus Help You to Secure AWS

Picus Cloud Security Validation (CSV) helps you secure your workloads in AWS by identifying cloud misconfigurations and overly permissive IAM policies - the two primary causes of AWS cloud data breaches.


AWS cloud auditing

Scanning core AWS services, Picus CSV identifies critical cloud misconfigurations that attackers could exploit. These include excessive privileges, exposed S3 buckets, and cryptographic failures.


AWS attack simulation

By simulating cloud attacks in AWS, Picus CSV identifies overly permissive identity and access management (IAM) policies that could enable attackers to compromise cloud services and steal data.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is AWS security?


AWS cloud security is the protection of AWS cloud infrastructure, services and data against cyber attacks.

Are AWS attack simulations safe to perform?


Picus Cloud Security Validation simulates attacks in a local policy simulator to ensure that attack scenarios won’t impact cloud operations.

How regularly should AWS cloud audits be performed?


Due to constant changes within AWS environments, such as the deployment of new users, services and assets, Picus recommends that organizations should perform cloud audits on at least a weekly basis.
