Enterprises

Enterprises can prevent security breaches by eliminating misconfigurations in their cloud environments.


Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)

InfoSec

Information Security (InfoSec) is setting corporate security standards for cloud infrastructure. InfoSec needs to review cloud security best practices and define the baseline enterprise security policies. It is also important to measure adherence to recognized industry standards such as NIST, CIS, and CSA.

Cloudneeti provides the most comprehensive out-of-the-box set of over 1,000 cloud security best practices for a wide variety of cloud workloads such as IaaS, PaaS, Serverless, and others. The product provides dashboards and reports about compliance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF), CIS Azure and Microsoft365 benchmarks, and Cloud Security Alliance’s Cloud Control Matrix (CSA CCM).

SOC

The Security Operations Centre (SOC) monitors the production environment for adherence to the baseline defined by InfoSec, discovers any deviations from the set standard, and coordinates remediations. The high-risk incidents need to be escalated for proper coordination and avoidance in the future.

Cloudneeti enables a periodic scan of the production environment with a set frequency (such as daily) as well as on request after each production deployment. The product discovers any deviations against baseline and logs them as tickets in the incident management system, sends notifications for critical issues, and triggers auto-remediation where possible.

Compliance Evidence

Compliance teams in regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare, and retail need to internally obtain the required compliance evidence about Information Technology (IT) infrastructure and provide industry-specific compliance reporting.

Cloudneeti offers out-of-the box compliance reporting for most common industry laws and regulations such as ISO, PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC, NCSC (UK), and RBI (India). The product provides weighted reporting on risk severity and risk likelihood for risk management purposes. The product provides General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) reporting for data privacy management purposes.

Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

Cloud Security

Infrastructure management teams and deployment automation engineers require proper training on cloud security best practices. These teams need to follow these standards when doing manual deployments or writing deployment automation Infrastructure as Code (IoC).

Cloudneeti has the most comprehensive list of cloud security best practices and provides the required training to customer teams for accelerated adoption of these industry standards.

Reference Architecture

Secure reference architecture is the starting point for secure cloud environment deployment. Such framework will leverage cloud-native mechanisms for securing application environments and defining configuration standards for consumed cloud resources.

Cloudneeti defined multiple architecture blueprints and frameworks for application deployment on IaaS, PaaS and Serverless cloud workloads. This expertise translated into cloud security best practices and guidance offered in the form of training and documentation.

DevSecOps

Application development and infrastructure management teams are moving towards the Developer Operations (DevOps) model for the cloud world. Yet dynamic cloud environments require adoption of the DevSecOps model for security left-shift and the ability to catch misconfigurations prior to releasing of the latest build into the production environment.

Cloudneeti enables developers to do a quick scan in their development and test environment to discover deviations from the InfoSec baseline. When deployment automation is integrated into CI/CD pipelines, a rescan can be triggered automatically using an API call to Cloudneeti product.

Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)

Continuous Compliance

Compliance teams are worried about compliance in the cloud and typically need to make significant efforts collecting the needed compliance evidence from multiple different sources with the IT organization.

Cloudneeti products enable continuous compliance with complete visibility into an accurate and up-to-date compliance posture. Compliance evidence can be provided to auditors with one mouse click.

Digital Risk Management

The threat of security breaches is keeping risk managers awake at night. Boards of Directors are asking “where do we stand,” yet the answer typically is “I don’t know, I need to do an assessment.” Manual security assessments are effort intensive, taking too much time, and still the information they provide gets outdated within days.

Cloudneeti provides continuous visibility into the actual cloud security posture and proper categorization of related risks. Risk managers always have up-to-date dashboards about the state of their cloud environment.

Data Privacy

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became effective on May 25, 2018, as the primary law regulating how companies protect European Union (EU) citizens’ personal data. Companies that fail to achieve GDPR compliance are subject to stiff penalties and fines.

Cloudneeti provides out-of-the-box GDPR compliance reporting for cloud environments. Data privacy teams have instant visibility into their compliance status and can track their improvement projects with ease.
