Misconfigurations in the cloud are becoming a prevalent source of risk for organisations as more and more businesses move their infrastructure to the cloud. The root cause of this increased risk is that in a cloud environment, far more people can set up and deploy network infrastructure, whereas in an on-premises network, that ability is usually restricted to IT professionals who are well-versed in security best-practices.
It’s important to note that while misconfigurations are a risk, they can be effectively managed. With the right tools and processes in place, you can leverage cloud infrastructure in a secure way. Correctly configuring cloud infrastructure requires close collaboration among development, IT, operations, and security teams. It also requires an understanding of proper configurations.
As a result, scanning for vulnerabilities alone is not enough to manage risk in your cloud infrastructure—you also need a strategy to prevent misconfigurations, as well as a purpose-built way to detect them when they still manage to sneak their way through.
