CheckRed extends platform capabilities to CNAPP and SSPM

CheckRed offers a powerful suite of cloud security solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of modern enterprises. Our commitment to providing both SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) under one roof has set us apart in the industry, allowing organizations to streamline their security operations and gain comprehensive visibility into their cloud environments.

With SSPM, CheckRed enables organizations to effectively secure their SaaS applications, ensuring compliance, data protection, and risk mitigation across SaaS applications. Our CSPM solution empowers businesses to assess, monitor, and mitigate security risks within their cloud infrastructure, spanning across various cloud service providers.

This integrated approach not only simplifies cloud security for our clients but also offers unparalleled flexibility and scalability in adapting to the dynamic nature of cloud environments. By consolidating SSPM and CSPM capabilities, CheckRed provides a holistic security solution that addresses the diverse challenges faced by modern enterprises in the cloud era.


Expanding CheckRed’s portfolio

As we continue to evolve and innovate, we are excited to announce the expansion of our platform capabilities to include Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). We are venturing beyond our established domains of SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) to encompass Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). This strategic decision marks a significant milestone in our journey towards providing holistic and comprehensive security solutions to our clients.

The need for this expansion arises from the rapidly evolving nature of cybersecurity threats and the increasingly complex cloud environments in which modern businesses operate. Traditional measures to ensure security can no longer keep up with the sophisticated tactics employed by cyber adversaries. As organizations embrace cloud-native architectures, the attack surface expands, presenting new challenges in securing cloud-native applications, workloads, and infrastructure entitlements.

By incorporating CNAPP into our portfolio, CheckRed aims to address the unique security requirements of cloud-native applications. These applications, built using microservices and containers, demand specialized protection mechanisms to defend against threats such as container vulnerabilities and runtime attacks. CNAPP enables organizations to adopt a proactive security stance, safeguarding their cloud-native applications throughout their lifecycle.

Cloud Native Application Protection Platform

CNAPP serves as a specialized security solution designed to safeguard cloud-native applications throughout their lifecycle. It offers a range of capabilities tailored to address the unique security requirements of modern, distributed architectures. One of CNAPP’s primary functions is to provide comprehensive visibility into the entire application stack, including individual microservices and containers. By gaining insights into the behavior and interactions of these components, organizations can identify potential security risks and vulnerabilities proactively.

CNAPP facilitates robust capabilities, helping businesses easily detect security incidents in real-time and respond accordingly. This includes the ability to monitor for unauthorized access attempts or questionable network activity, and take immediate remedial action to mitigate potential threats.

Integrating CNAPP into CheckRed’s platform offers several key benefits:

  • Provides centralized security management
  • Enhances visibility and control over cloud-native environments
  • Enables seamless interoperability with existing security tools and workflows

Let us take a look at the components that CheckRed’s CNAPP will encompass.

Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP)

Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) is a specialized security solution that safeguards cloud workloads from a wide range of risks and vulnerabilities. Cloud workloads encompass virtual machines, containers, serverless functions, and other compute instances deployed in cloud environments. CWPP plays a crucial role in securing these workloads by providing advanced risk detection, vulnerability management, and compliance monitoring capabilities. Its primary objective is to help organizations mitigate misconfigurations and other risks that might lead to threats such as malware, ransomware, unauthorized access, and data breaches.

CWPP offers comprehensive vulnerability management capabilities, enabling organizations to mitigate security issues within their cloud workloads. This includes scanning for known vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and compliance violations, and providing recommendations for remediation. Proactive management of such security concerns can help businesses reduce their risk exposure and strengthen their overall security posture.

Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)

Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) is a critical component in cloud security, focusing on managing and securing access permissions and entitlements within cloud environments. As organizations increasingly adopt cloud services, managing access to resources and ensuring least privilege becomes paramount for maintaining a robust security posture.

CIEM solutions offer comprehensive visibility into access permissions across cloud services and various relevant resources like databases. By centralizing access controls and permissions management, CIEM enables organizations to enforce security policies consistently and mitigate the risk of unauthorized access.

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) is a crucial aspect of ensuring the security and compliance of cloud environments. CSPM solutions provide comprehensive visibility into cloud infrastructure, identifying security risks, misconfigurations, and compliance gaps across various cloud services and resources. By continuously monitoring cloud configurations against best practices and security standards, CSPM enables organizations to identify and remediate security vulnerabilities proactively.

CSPM assesses the security posture of cloud environments, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. This involves evaluating configurations related to network security, data encryption, access controls, and identity management to ensure adherence to security policies and compliance requirements.

Today, the present cybersecurity circumstances demand a highly proactive stance and a comprehensive approach to ensure effective cloud security. CheckRed’s expansion into Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) and the continued offering of SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) mark a significant evolution in our commitment to providing comprehensive security solutions. With these additions, CheckRed now offers complete cloud security that enables organizations to meet the diverse challenges of operating a business in the cloud.
