Industry Challenge

Need for Security and Regulatory and Security Compliance

Current methods, tools and services for ensuring security and regulatory compliance of cloud infrastructures are inadequate, leaving most cloud users with few solutions to address their evolving needs. Shortcomings include:

  • Inability to discover, assess, and manage cloud security and compliance posture on a continuous, comprehensive, system-wide basis
  • Difficulty to keep up with regulatory and security guidelines that rapidly change
  • Difficulty delineating and addressing shared security responsibilities of cloud and multi-cloud security across multiple vendors
  • Lack of a comprehensive Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) system with cloud workload protections (CWPP)

Clearly, a system wide CSPM strategy to simplify security and compliance is needed. In fact, Gartner estimates that through 2024, organizations implementing CSPM will reduce cloud-related security incidents due to misconfiguration by 80%.1
