Security Monitoring of Cloud Platform and Cloud Applications
CHALLENGE: Protecting confidential data in a cloud environment
Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud technologies, resulting in more and more data being pushed to the cloud environment. Legacy on-premises security controls are no longer applicable, as enterprises are challenged with controlling access and movement of sensitive data to and from the cloud environment. Key cloud security concerns include how to identify sensitive data movement in the cloud, access control, unauthorized activities, privilege misuse or compromise, unauthorized sharing, and data exfiltration.
SOLUTION: Context-aware analytics and detection
Securonix cloud security analytics extends security monitoring to cloud infrastructure and applications. Securonix has built in API’s for all major cloud infrastructure and application technologies that enables the solution to analyze user entitlements and events to look for malicious activity. The solution correlates cloud data with data from on premise devices to add entity context information and analyze end-to-end activities of the entity to detect actionable threat patterns.
In addition to detecting threat patterns, Securonix is the only solution that also provides data classification and privileged access governance capabilities. With data classification, you can scan your cloud environment for sensitive data. The privileged access governance capability enables you to do dynamic access management using techniques such as peer group analysis. The solution also provides enterprises the ability to do periodic access reviews to sensitive data in the cloud and manage access proactively to avoid data breaches.
