This morning, we launched Cloud Asset Compliance, leveraging data aggregated from public cloud providers to automatically determine how cloud workloads, configuration details, and accounts comply with industry security benchmarks. Available today, Axonius Cloud Asset Compliance for AWS aggregates and correlates data from customers’ AWS environments to show adherence to the rules defined in the CIS Amazon Web Services Foundations Benchmark 1.2.
The speed, flexibility, and cost savings of the cloud are driving many organizations to move mission-critical workloads to public cloud environments. But often, the speed of DevOps and the breadth of instances result in misconfiguration, overly permissive access rights, and publicly available sensitive data to anyone knowing where to look. By aggregating data from public cloud infrastructure providers like AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, Axonius Cloud Asset Compliance automatically shows how each cloud instance conforms to widely accepted security benchmarks like CIS as well as the organization’s overall security policy.
From this morning’s press release:
The introduction of Cloud Asset Compliance is just the latest example of our ongoing commitment to helping customers automate the manual work involved with getting a credible inventory, understanding security gaps, and automating policy enforcement.
Since we already integrate with nearly 200 solutions to aggregate, correlate, and show how assets match security policies, it made perfect sense to build a series of add-ons to help customers automatically validate adherence to benchmarks like CIS. Whether our customers’ assets are devices on networks or instances in the cloud, we want to show them what they have, whether those assets meet the security policy, and we want to help them remediate issues as quickly or automatically as they want.
