Ensuring compliance requirements is quite a challenge due to laws (e.g. DSGVO), regulations (e.g. PCI-DSS) and knowledge from best practices (e.g. CIS Security Benchmarks) - especially for the cloud.
It is expected that innovation cycles will steadily shorten.
At the same time, regulations are increasing and data protection is becoming more important.
Cybercriminals are becoming more and more professional and thus pose a substantial threat to companies.
The result: increasingly complex systems that have to be developed in shorter and shorter periods of time and at the same time have to meet higher security requirements.
But security requirements are often only checked by manual audits, randomly and only once a year - if at all. The results of the audits, however, represent only a snapshot that is no longer up to date when applications are developed rapidly within days.
According to the independent organization for security standards OWASP, the biggest security problems include security-related misconfigurations and the use of components with known vulnerabilities.
The probability that a system is non-compliant increases enormously. This also increases the risk of damage to reputation, loss of sales or penalties.
With Continuous Compliance your IT landscape is checked 24/7 by automated policies and non-compliance is reported immediately. This reduces the risks and the high security requirements can be met as well as possible.
Examine source code for compliance and security requirements.
Manage the entire lifecycle of docker images. Identify application security risks and prevent legal violations, while enforcing docker image compliance.
Ensure compliance of infrastructure elements on-premise. From certificates to firewalls, operating systems, daemons such as SSH and container images.
Ensure compliance of all resources in a cloud. From the use of resources, their uniform configuration, and the associated cost control to the uniform exposure of resources to the Internet.
Uniform non-functional configuration and integrity of applications. Ensure like logging or security at run-time.
