Excellent platform cloud security recommendations from SonraiSecurity

Top data cloud security recommendations{||| today| right now| 2022| from sonraisecurity.com? Address the root of your cloud vulnerabilities: Recognizing which vulnerabilities are the most dangerous to your business means understanding threats unique to the host. A vulnerability is a crack in the perimeter, but revealing the path to sensitive data comes from platform, identity, and data risks. To reveal this, Sonrai Risk Amplifiers automatically highlight vulnerabilities with high privileges, access to sensitive data, or external exposure. Read even more info on Least Privilege. Custom to your cloud: Sonrai organizes your cloud by team and workload importance, right-sizing policies for each environment and allowing you to route issues to the relevant people.

Always know who accessed what data and when: The point-in-time analysis approach fundamentally misunderstands the nature of modern cloud, which relies on ephemeral compute that disappears between scans and adheres to always-on compliance standards. Sonrai eliminates this problem and provides security teams with a complete, continuous picture of the true status of their security posture that enables enterprises to stay on top of cloud risk in real-time. Continuously monitor activity logs, cloud assets, and configuration: Sonrai captures and monitors serverless functions that only exist for a few minutes and have their activity tracked and understood, preventing any circumventing of detection that a point-in-time CSPM would miss.

Monitor critical resources and enforce Least Access where it matters. Least access is extremely important to apply to critical resources. But as a strict policy goal, it’s difficult to apply it to every piece of data. When you consider that your cloud comprises tens of thousands of pieces of compute and thousands of roles with rights and privileges to access data, this becomes a daunting task. Sonrai’s Identity Graph lets you understand every identity’s historical data access and potential access, allowing you to enforce a least access policy in the right places without placing unnecessary tripwires elsewhere. Certain data assets are so sensitive that you need to know everything happening to them. Sonrai will show behavioral use and access pattern changes to these critical resources.

That cloud security is a growing concern and that identities (specifically, non-person identities) are a critical factor of it is not surprising to us at all. To give an example of scale, Sonrai measures 30,000 unique permissions across all three major clouds with 17 new permissions being added every day. Think about that, with the rapid growth both in the usage of the cloud, and the complexity of Identity Management, how can even the most well-funded teams keep up? They don’t, and often times they operate with significant risks in their cloud, to which they are completely blind.

Know where your data is. Know it’s classified properly. Confidently identify and monitor critical resources with total assurance. Protecting sensitive data is the core mission of the Sonrai platform. We help you unearth data, classify it, tag it, and monitor all activity around critical resources — including actions inside databases and secret stores. Defending the identity-to-data attack path requires protection from both ends, made possible with cloud data leak prevention. See more info at https://sonraisecurity.com/.
