Protect Identities and Access to Compliance-Minded Federal, State and Local Entities
Numerous government initiatives at the federal, state and local levels encourage cloud adoption to improve efficiency, flexibility, and speed. The goal is to deliver better experiences and services to constituents, employees, and all stakeholders.
Despite these initiatives, government organizations are lagging in cloud adoption and are skeptical of adopting a cloud-first approach, often due to concerns about security. These concerns are broad but often are related to protecting personally identifiable information (PII) of employees and citizens. Compliance requirements from FedRAMP, GDPR, ECPA, or other government standards create further complexity. These challenges make security and compliance a strategic element of their adoption of cloud.
All of these concerns are addressable with advanced cloud governance, allowing government organizations to accelerate innovation using public cloud without loss of control. Leading government organizations use Sonrai Dig to protect their public cloud environments from misconfiguration, policy violations, identity, and data governance challenges, and more.
With automated, real-time remediation, Sonrai Security clients achieve continuous security and compliance, and can fully realize the benefits of the cloud.
Your organization's mission-critical data or “crown jewels” are information assets of the greatest value and would cause major disruption if compromised. These assets attract the attention of highly capable bad actors, all of whom are intent on accessing this valuable information. With Sonrai Dig for federal, state, and local government, your architecture is secure, agile, and compliant. You will gain the agility of the cloud without trading security by extending monitoring to all data, resources, and microservices across your public cloud.
Your organization can continuously monitor database and database service access to get immediate feedback on the health of your public cloud. In addition to looking for public buckets and object stores, Sonrai Dig discovers and monitors access to these critical stores and resources - so your organization knows who has access to data, what was accessed, when data was accessed, and more.
Public cloud continues to transform IT environments in state, local, and federal government infrastructures. Organizations deploying public clouds are increasingly opting to reduce the complexity and expense of integrating storage and computing. When deploying workloads into the cloud, complex sets of microservices and serverless functions create a constantly shifting security environment. Thousands of pieces of compute interact with hundreds of roles. This complexity in identity and data access leaves your organization at risk.
With Sonrai Dig, you can reduce this complexity and decode permissions and activities of roles and identities so your organization may track permissions and monitor activity of all of these identities as they create roles, assume roles, and gain access to your data. By reducing complexity, your organization can better manage its resources across AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), and Kubernetes.
The pace of change in IT system modernization is remarkable, but many fundamental techniques used in today’s typical identity and access audit are similar to those used 20 years ago. There are many benefits to modernizing your cloud and your approach for both the auditors and audited organizations. Obtaining data in a format necessary to take advantage of a digital auditing approach may be a significant challenge for some government organizations. One of the most common barriers involves capturing data from different systems and understanding who has accessed that data, when did they access it, and how can that data be accessed. Sonrai Dig is designed to remove this complexity and simplify the reporting and auditing of your infrastructure.
Sonrai Dig gives your organization out-of-the-box compliance frameworks with reporting and auditing. Security groups with Internet access, exposed ports, public buckets, encryption and audit state, access key rotation, and weak ciphers are examples of the hundreds of controls that are continuously monitored. Controls are organized into frameworks to support compliance and audit 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.
