360° Asset Visibility
Complete asset visibility plays a crucial role in ensuring the robust security of SaaS and cloud infrastructure. With organizations relying heavily on these environments, it becomes essential to have a comprehensive understanding of all assets, their configurations, and associated risks.
360-degree asset visibility provides a holistic view, enabling businesses to identify vulnerabilities, prioritize risks, and proactively protect critical assets. By having this level of visibility, organizations can confidently address security alerts, comply with regulatory requirements, and safeguard sensitive information.
The need for complete asset visibility
- The borderless nature of IT infrastructures in the era of digital transformation presents challenges.
- Distributed enterprise networks add to the complexity, making achieving comprehensive visibility a daunting task.
Legal and regulatory requirements
- Organizations face legal responsibilities and regulatory obligations across various geographies and industries.
- Regulations may encompass data protection, privacy laws, industry-specific standards, and international frameworks.
- Non-compliance can result in dire repercussions of financial, legal, and reputational nature.
Different stakeholders within an organization require tailored insights to efficiently handle risks and make informed decisions. Role-based access and customized reports are crucial in achieving this:
- Executives need high-level overviews and strategic insights.
- IT administrators require detailed visibility into network performance and vulnerabilities.
- Compliance teams rely on reports that highlight adherence to regulations.
- Security analysts need real-time threat intelligence and incident response capabilities.
Challenges faced by organizations
In the dynamic realm of security posture, organizations often encounter significant challenges as a result of the following:
Fragmented view of critical infrastructure
- The reliance on multiple applications creates a fragmented view, hindering a comprehensive understanding of the organization’s security posture.
- Information becomes compartmentalized and there is limited visibility when several tools and platforms are utilized.
Risk management challenges
- A lack of risk prioritization results in inefficient resource allocation and delays the mitigation of serious threats.
- It is essential to abandon checklist compliance and switch to a risk-based prioritization strategy.
- Organizations can concentrate on vulnerabilities that represent the biggest threats to sensitive data and important assets by using risk assessment.
Organizations must address the problems caused by fragmented viewpoints and prioritize security risk management based on risk assessment in order to strengthen their security defenses and safeguard their most important assets.
