See How Sonrai Security Compares to Other Tools
In cloud, everything has an identity: users, applications, services, and resources. This provides enormous flexibility, but also creates the opportunity for substantial risk, as every service is potentially reachable by every other one. Sonrai Dig, our identity and data governance platform, helps govern cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) by enabling you to get your organization to least privilege and then maintain it across your single or multi-cloud deployments. We uncover all identity and data relationships for both people (users) and non-people (admins, roles, compute instances, serverless functions, and containers) identities across multi-cloud accounts and 3rd-party data stores. Protecting the identity perimeter at scale requires automated monitoring and remediation around access management, role management, identity authentication, and compliance auditing.
Public cloud is complex and that puts your enterprise’s data at risk. Between unintentional actions and mistakes in configuration, your organization risks sensitive data being exposed—and that can cause a range of problems, from fines to customer loss, legal ramifications, and irreparable damage to your company brand.
While data loss and data leakage can both result in a data breach, the detection and handling of data loss prevention and data leakage prevention must both be considered in public cloud. DLP solutions focus on the detection and prevention of sensitive data exfiltration or lost data, and include a variety of use cases - from a stolen thumb drive to ransomware attacks. DLPs need a new approach as identities are the perimeter in the public cloud and its changing the way security is approached in today’s world.
Data leakage is more complex and includes the risk of sensitive data flowing between an enterprise’s critical systems. While safeguards can be assumed to be in place in the “system of record,” data leakage can occur when data is cascaded to unintentional identities unless some level of control is enforced.
Even with varying industry requirements and changing technological capabilities, protecting data is still the top priority for security in the cloud. Most CASBs offer a range of features that help secure your organization at the human level. Unfortunately, covering only the human identity is simply not enough when working in public cloud. Uncover all identity and data relationships between people (users) and non-people (admins, roles, compute instances, serverless functions, and containers) identities across multi-cloud accounts and 3rd-party data stores with Sonrai Dig.
Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) operate on a shared security model. Security is a shared responsibility between the CSP and the user, and the responsibilities are fairly well delineated. For example, CSPs make a distinction between security of the cloud and security in the cloud. In general, the CSP is responsible for securing the cloud infrastructure – hardware, software, networking, and physical facilities. Customers are responsible for securing their own operating systems, applications, configurations, and data.
CSPs may offer cloud-native tools for securing your organization's assets. If you choose to use those tools, your enterprise is responsible for configuring and managing them – not the provider. This means customers need to be proactive and scrupulous in understanding the full extent of the CSPs security capabilities, then figuring out what they need to do on top of that in order to hold up their end of the shared security model.
Leveraging cloud native tools is essential, and, for some cloud implementations, it is enough to manage workload risks. While cloud providers deliver basic configuration capabilities, they only address their own services, which leaves out the multi-cloud capabilities that most enterprises require. And although the underlying cloud provider infrastructure is secure, most enterprises don’t have the processes, tooling maturity or scale to govern their cloud securely.
Each CSP provides security for their own specific cloud and often this becomes extremely complex and a huge challenge for security teams. Policies created using one CSP’s tools will not be able to follow workloads as they migrate to different environments, putting the responsibility on the organization to manage multiple policy solutions. How can enterprise teams protect data and workloads as they move among multiple environments and clouds with widely varying security standards, capabilities, and tools? This is where an intelligent CSPM can help.
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. Join this webinar to learn strategies to mitigate these risks.
