Cloud Auditing & Hardening

Securing and accelerating the protection of the cloud services
Cloud Security is a complex discipline that must be integrated with the enterprise architecture in the early stages, due to its dynamic approach to align with the business objectives.

The rapid proliferation of cloud deployments consistently raises concerns around securing cloud services. No doubt, cloud security management is a complex discipline that must be integrated with the enterprise architecture in the early stages. This is because cloud security management has a dynamic approach to align with the business objectives.

We provide a full spectrum of cloud auditing & hardening services, setting a pathway for cloud service adoption and cloud security management.

How it works?

Methodology

Even though our cloud auditing & hardening methodology and delivery models are tailored as per the client’s cloud service and deployment model, we leverage our core principles, as we partner with our customers throughout this journey:

Getting the right focus

We work with clients to prioritize the major cloud services as per the environment’s exposure and business objective.

Understanding the services right

We work with clients to understand how the solution and cloud services are configured and tailored as per the business objective from a design standpoint.

Getting our service to scale

We help clients quickly secure their workflows in the cloud by leveraging our delivery frameworks with integrated team development.

Challenges

With substantial workloads moving to varied cloud platforms, the threat landscape constantly changes for an organization. Thus, organizations need to develop new capabilities to manage cyber risk as they move to the cloud.
As per our experience, the following are some of the major challenges faced by organizations during cloud security management:
Unknown assets in the environment and ownership are typically missing from the inventory which leads to cloud governance and associated cyber risks such as data breaches.
Enabling business innovation by protecting critical assets against known and emerging threats across the entire cloud environment is crucial.
Gaining detective visibility and preemptive threat insight to detect both known and unknown adversarial activity is crucial for cloud services, and lack of secure cloud strategy and architecture limits this capability.
Cross-functional coordination and management to address security program requirements of the cloud is crucial and challenging.

The common vulnerabilities we tackled in the past

With over 400 cloud security engagements, our team have identified design, configuration, and implementation based flaws, including but not restricted to:
S3 Bucket Misconfigurations
Overly permissive access policy and identity
  1. Internal assets exposed publicly
Misconfigured/default Security Groups
Improper Logging
Misconfigured Kubernetes engines, Google Storage, databases
Missing Security Best practices: Stackdriver logging/monitoring, encryption, built-in security tools such as Cloud Security Scanner
Cross-user/project/organization privilege escalation/abuse
Missing security patches

What do you get?

On-demand Cloud Security Assessment
The on-demand cloud security assessment is designed as an audit styled pursuit. In this assessment, a read-only access account in the respective cloud platform needs to be provisioned by the client, which is used by us to conduct an in-depth cloud security assessment of the provisioned services. We then offer guidance on the findings.
Cloud Continuous Auditing
Collection of audit evidence and indicators to analyze risk data on a more frequent basis. This helps with the detection of anomalies, outliers, and other inconsistencies that can be addressed proactively.
Cloud Periodic Security Monitoring
We focus on providing a feedback mechanism for management to ensure that the Cloud platform services and associated security controls have been operating as designed and transactions are processing appropriately.
WSA Cloud Audit Security Services
It is more than just a centralized repository of the cloud audit findings. It’s all the capabilities required for cloud security management of services using Strobes.
