Our cloud security assessments identify gaps in security posture and provide actionable goals to improve the protection of business initiatives. We tailor our assessments to our clients’ specific cloud environment architecture and utilization, so we can best address their
unique landscapes. Additionally, we serve as partners long beyond the initial assessment. We can help develop client teams’ cloud security abilities and implement technology to assist in the ongoing evaluation of their cloud security postures.
We help clients integrate cloud-logging capabilities with enterprise logging and monitoring processes. Organizations often have robust Security Operations Center (SOC) capabilities, but if the necessary data from the cloud is not reaching the SOC then the subsequent monitoring is useless. Our projects focus on connecting the data to the SOC using the appropriate cloud architecture, while also looking at moving basic alerting capabilities into cloud native features to reduce overall data flow and spend.
We offer assessments of clients’ access policies across users and resources to holistically improve access posture. Cloud access can be confusing because of the
often overlapping controls on a single resource, and we
analyze, simplify, and streamline the current state and approach to future access configuration. While this
naturally starts with an assessment of their access structure, we focus on lasting change by directly implementing access changes to improve clients’ posture.
After the initiative, clients can feel confident their access
configuration holds to best practices and minimizes risk
from compromised accounts.
We offer assistance in the development of hardened resource templates for key business use cases to
streamline configuration management. Our experienced team assesses common use cases for various resource types in the cloud such as VMs, containers, serverless, storage, etc. Then, our team develops hardened images that are pre-configured with the appropriate security settings for each organization. We also help clients look at
commercial options for ongoing security assessments of their various resource images. This comprehensive approach ensures their developers and operations teams have a streamlined approach to quickly and easily select templates that meet their needs while also addressing security needs.
We can help analyze clients’ ongoing costs in the cloud security space to guide the reduction and unification of
unnecessary expenditures. Due to the rapid expansion of cloud services, we have seen subsequent unnecessary spend develop in the use of security tools and services in the rush to curb that organizational risk. Our position as an impartial third party allows us to come in and objectively assess potential overlap in cloud security measures to provide recommendations for cost
We can evaluate the marketplace and assist clients in the selection of cloud security tools for ongoing environment management. Our team, experienced with the various vendor offerings, can help identify the solution that best fits clients’ needs. Our team can also help with the preparation and implementation of the new tool to ensure a smooth transition.
