What is Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)?

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) involves offerings that continuously manage the security posture of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) by preventing, detecting, and responding to risks that the cloud infrastructure may face.

Cloud Security Posture Management o CSPMThe core of CSPM applies common frameworks, regulatory requirements, and corporate policies to proactively and reactively discover and assess the risk/trust of cloud service configurations and security settings. If an issue is identified, corrective options are provided, which can be automated or led by a team.

CSPM solutions locate misconfigurations in network connectivity that could lead to data breaches or leaks. It achieves this by comparing cloud networks with organizational benchmarks and best practices, immediately flagging any errors.

They enable organizations to detect potential data risks that may be caused by human error or go unnoticed by the cloud provider. This could include vulnerabilities introduced by developers quickly launching a new application or virtual machines that may leave the company’s network exposed. Therefore, proactively, CSPM identifies and mitigates these data risks in cloud environments.

CSPM uses security policies and corporate best practices to continuously monitor events where account privileges have been violated or revoked. Consequently, if a user accesses a resource not permitted by their area or role, it will be immediately detected and prevented.

Why Does a Company Need CSPM?

It is essential to implement Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) in the company because it provides greater productivity and flexibility in the work environment. As these solutions are exposed on the internet, they can expose the company to risks and cybersecurity threats, jeopardizing confidential data.

Individuals responsible for ensuring information security in the company constantly face challenges related to the following risks:

  • Misconfigurations in cloud infrastructure, leading to data breaches.
  • Attempting to meet the demands of cloud applications and workloads, which is challenging with traditional local tools and processes.
  • Facing challenges during implementation, such as lack of visibility, difficulties with permissions, applying policies across all business units, and lacking knowledge about specific cloud security controls.

According to Gartner, by 2024, organizations that implement CSPM offerings and extend this strategy to development will reduce security incidents related to misconfigurations by 80%.
