Double Your Threat Blocking in 90 Days
To ensure that your cloud workloads in Microsoft Azure are secure, it’s important to assess your environments regularly. Azure cloud attacks occur because organizations fail to follow Microsoft’s Shared Responsibility Model and proactively identify cloud misconfigurations in the services they rely on daily.
Common Azure misconfigurations that can lead to cloud security data breaches include:
Misconfigured IAM policies Unrestricted access to resources Insecure data storage
Picus Cloud Security Validation (CSV) helps you to stay on top of cloud security posture management by identifying the two primary causes of data breaches in Azure: cloud misconfigurations and overly permissive IAM policies.
Scanning sixteen Azure services, Picus CSV identifies critical cloud misconfigurations that attackers could exploit. These include excessive privileges, exposed S3 buckets, and cryptographic failures.
By simulating privileges escalation scenarios in Azure, Picus CSV identifies overly permissive identity and access management (IAM) policies that could enable attackers to compromise Azure cloud services and steal data.
Due to the rapid pace of digital transformation, the increasing complexity of cloud environments, and human error, critical security gaps that could enable attackers to compromise your cloud services can arise daily.
Picus Cloud Security Validation not only helps to stay on top of cloud security risks by automating Azure cloud security posture management. With Azure attack simulation, it also provides additional assurance that your cloud-native controls are configured optimally to minimize the impact of cloud breaches.

What is Azure Cloud Security?
Azure cloud security is the protection of Azure cloud infrastructure, services and data against cyber attacks.
Are Azure Attack Simulations Safe to Perform?
Picus Cloud Security Validation safely executes attack scenarios in a local policy simulator. This approach ensures that there is no impact on your cloud operations.
How Regularly Should Azure Cloud Audits be Performed?
Picus recommends that organizations should perform cloud audits on at least a weekly basis. This is due to the rate of change within Azure cloud environments. Audits should also be performed following infrastructure changes, such as the deployment of new cloud services.
