Protect the future of your energy business in the public cloud
Numerous energy and utility initiatives encourage cloud adoption to improve efficiency, flexibility, and speed. The goal is to remove legacy systems to deliver better experiences and services to clients, employees, and all stakeholders.
Despite these initiatives, energy and utility organizations are lagging in cloud adoption and are skeptical of adopting a cloud-first approach, often due to security concerns. These cloud security concerns are broad but often are related to protecting personally identifiable information (PII) of employees and customers. Also, there is frequently a compliance requirement in the form of other company and government standards. These challenges make security and compliance a strategic element of their adoption of cloud computing.
However, these organizations can accelerate innovation using the public cloud without the loss of control. Leading energy and utility companies use Sonrai Dig to protect their public cloud environments from misconfiguration, policy violations, identity, and data governance challenges.
There are a number of ways to approach your cloud migration and security. With automated, real-time remediation, Sonrai Security clients achieve continuous security and compliance, continuous data and identity security, and can fully realize the benefits of the cloud.
As energy and utilities navigate implementing the public cloud, there’s an opportunity to have an architecture that is secure, agile, and compliant. With Sonrai Dig, your company empowers developers to deliver faster, more flexible applications securely while preventing unintended and mistaken data exposure. Dig continuously monitors database and database service access to get immediate feedback on the health of your public cloud. Databases like DynamoDB, CosmosDB, RDS, Data Lake, Big Table, and many other cloud-based data stores contain your sensitive data. In addition to looking for public buckets and object stores, Sonrai Dig can help your organization discover and monitor access to these critical stores, databases, and resources to secure and lock down your data.
Deploying workloads into the cloud can quickly involve complex sets of both human and non-person identities, creating a new perimeter in a constantly changing security environment with thousands of pieces of compute across hundreds of roles. This complexity in identity and data access leaves your company at risk and your teams in need of simplicity. By simplifying your environment, you can better manage resources whether it is people, processes, policies, or compute. Sonrai Dig can decode permissions and activity of roles and identities so your company may track permissions and monitor the activity of all of these identities as they create roles, assume roles, and gain access to your data.
Sonrai Dig delivers 100% of the security and compliance controls needed for monitoring base platform configuration across the public cloud. Our solution maps every trust relationship, inherited permission, and policy for every entity to help identify excessive permissions, privilege escalation, and separation of duty risks across thousands of roles, compute instances, and hundreds of accounts.
Dig gives your energy and utility organization a cloud platform posture with out-of-the-box compliance frameworks and controls that are organized into frameworks to support CIS, NIST, PCI, and many other compliance mandates.
There are many benefits to using AWS, but how do you manage security, compliance, and access risk within the AWS environment? Ignoring security gaps and relying on a single vendor dramatically increases risk, but with many cloud and security teams being asked to reduce costs in the challenging economic climate, taking a single vendor approach can be tempting. Watch this webinar to learn strategies to mitigate these risks.
