The Shared Responsibility Model puts the burden of securing the infrastructure on your cloud service provider, but it falls on you to secure applications and data. Gartner predicts that through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the fault of the customer, largely due to misconfigurations. Uptycs’ cloud security posture management (CSPM) solution simplifies the task of hardening your cloud attack surface and enforcing adherence to best practices, such as those defined by the CIS Benchmarks.
You can’t secure what you can’t see. Uptycs’ CSPM offering improves visibility by giving you connected insights across all of your cloud accounts. Users can group and tag their cloud-based assets and resources across accounts, and run queries and reports. In a single place, you can answer questions about your entire cloud environment such as “What cloud-based assets do I have running and where?” and “What are my cloud service configurations?”
Uptycs makes it easy for security teams to ensure their cloud resources across accounts are adhering to best practices. This helps you hold up your part of the shared responsibility model, avoid misconfigurations, and proactively identify and remediate risk.
Uptycs ingests and analyzes telemetry from cloud resources to alert teams to insecure configurations, track configuration history, and provide details that engineers need to quickly remediate issues. With Uptycs in place, security teams can mitigate risk by continuously monitoring the security posture of cloud workloads and resources; enabling balance between protection and operational agility.
Uptycs makes demonstrating compliance with detailed evidence much faster. Security and compliance teams will know where they need to target their remediation efforts. Users can view summary visualizations of compliance posture and have the ability to drill down into non-compliant resources, associated evidence, and remediation guidance. They can instantly see the latest failed configuration checks, most non-compliant resources, time to resolve non-compliance, and more. Uptycs currently supports CIS Benchmarks for AWS and Kubnernetes, and SOC 2 out of the box and can add support for other standards.
Uptycs ingests IAM policy rules to perform security assessments, enable users to see which permissions are being used by which entity (user and role) and when last used, and alert on policies with excessive permissions. Uptycs ingests IAM policy rules to perform security assessments. In the cloud, if attackers can gain access or escalate their privileges through IAM, then they have the keys to the kingdom. "IAM is a firewall for the cloud," because if IAM configurations are insecure, then other preventative protections become less relevant.
It is prudent to prepare for the worst, despite your best efforts. To minimize damage, security teams need to be aware of attacks directed against their cloud resources and be able to rapidly investigate possible incidents. Uptycs ingests AWS CloudTrail and VPC Flow Logs, and other relevant data, and matches this information against its curated threat intelligence database to detect threats in the cloud. To speed investigations and trace user activity, Uptycs also correlates activity with AWS CloudTrail logs and VPC Flow Logs.
