Why companies need complete cloud security posture management

Cloud computing has undoubtedly become an integral part of businesses thanks to its many benefits, such as scalability, cost-effectiveness, and flexibility. However, cloud computing poses many potential risks, and security should always be a top priority. That’s where cloud security posture management (CSPM) and SaaS security posture management (SSPM) come into play. Whether they operate in a single or multi-cloud environment, companies must have a complete security posture strategy in place.

Understanding single cloud and multi-cloud environments

  • Software as a Service (SaaS): A cloud-based program, such as email or customer relationship management (CRM)
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS): A framework that unifies various applications into one interface, such as Google Workspace
  • Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS): A model that enables you to combine a range of vendor-provided apps with custom apps, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure

In a multi-cloud environment, businesses use more than one cloud provider for their daily operations. This approach offers many advantages, including flexibility, vendor diversity, and the ability to choose the most appropriate solution for each workload

The need for comprehensive security posture management

A cloud may, in the course of just one day, connect to and disconnect from numerous networks, sometimes even ranging in the thousands. Although its dynamic nature makes it strong, it is another challenge altogether to protect the cloud. Since the cloud-first mentality has begun to be accepted as the norm, the process of protecting and securing cloud-based systems has become much more challenging.

The automation of risk detection and mitigation across cloud infrastructures, including IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS, is accomplished via CSPM and SSPM.

Essential operations like risk and threat management, compliance monitoring, threat incident mitigation and response, and DevOps integration can all be performed under one roof with the help of CSPM/SSPM.
