Innovation Insight for Cloud Security Posture Management

Nearly all successful attacks on cloud services are the result of customer misconfiguration, mismanagement and mistakes. Security and risk management leaders should invest in cloud security posture management processes and tools to proactively and reactively identify and remediate these risks.

Key Findings:

  • The rapid adoption of cloud services, along with an increasing number of cloud infrastructure and platform services, has created an explosion in complexity and unmanaged risk.
  • IaaS providers deliver basic configuration and risk assessment capabilities, but only address their own services. Most enterprises will require hybrid, multicloud capabilities.
  • The market is in flux. There has been a large increase in the number of CSPM offerings over past 18 months, with some initial market consolidation via acquisitions.
  • To differentiate, vendors are adding scanning for vulnerabilities, sensitive data and malware.
  • CSPM tools alone won’t eliminate cloud risk. Process and culture changes are also needed.
