It’s a new beginning! Ermetic is now Tenable Cloud Security.

Infrastructure as Code Security

IaC scanning is an essential tool for preventing risk in automated code from the earliest stages. Learn how Tenable Cloud Security’s IaC scanning, part of an identity-first cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP), helps detect and remediate IaC risks, and drive shift-left security and collaboration.

Having secure, properly configured cloud infrastructure is vital. Gartner estimates that at least 99% of cloud security failures through 2025 will be a result of customer actions or inactions, primarily resulting from cloud resource misconfiguration.

IaC Flaws = Increased Attack Surface

While IaC provides a major improvement to how teams deploy cloud infrastructure, it can inadvertently introduce risks stemming from human error or a lack of attention to security policies and best practices. En route to true Shift Left security, your organization may face multiple challenges:

Cloud Complexity

The challenge of detecting security flaws across the product lifecycle dramatically increases over multiple clouds.

Cumbersome Manual Code Review

Security experts can be hired to manually review IaC configurations however, this can be expensive, error-prone and time-consuming for large scale projects.

Lack of Visibility

Security and DevOps often rely on multiple point security solutions that create visibility gaps and blindspots.

Tenable Cloud Security can make a significant impact on the security of your CI/CD pipeline. It empowers developers to easily write secure code and saves time by eliminating cloud infrastructure misconfigurations and other risks prior to deployment in production.

Identify Misconfigurations & Compliance Violations in Code

Tenable Cloud Security enables developers to scan and detect misconfigurations and other risks in IaC to harden cloud infrastructure environments as part of the CI/CD pipeline. By embedding comprehensive cloud security checks and surfacing findings directly in native development tools including Jenkins, BitBucket, CircleCI, GitHub and GitLab, your developers can deliver code efficiently and securely.

Integrate Security into the Development Pipeline

Tenable Cloud Security streamlines security throughout the software development lifecycle by embedding security into workflows in DevOps tooling including Terraform and CloudFormation. By combining context and risk prioritization, developers can quickly evaluate critical security and compliance risk against industry standard benchmarks or custom policies and course correct as needed.

Built-In Remediation

Tenable Cloud Security helps mitigate cloud infrastructure misconfigurations and other risks through integration with a variety of automated and assisted remediation tools. Teams can plug Tenable findings into existing workflows or auto-remediate directly with wizards, assign alerts and IaC snippets via ticketing systems (e.g., Jira or ServiceNow), and integrate with source code repositories to add comments and suggested fixes to pull requests.

Compliance Benchmarks

With its agentless approach, Tenable Cloud Security allows teams to maintain automated compliance against industry standard regulations and benchmarks like PCI-DSS, CIS Benchmarks, SOC 2, PSD2, GDPR, NIST, HIPAA, and more, as well as custom frameworks. Leveraging Tenable, audit and compliance teams can detect and mitigate compliance violations early.

Cloud-Native Security across the Full Lifecycle

Tenable offers IaC scanning as part of its comprehensive Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) for AWS, Azure and GCP environments, integrating security and compliance automation from development to runtime. The platform provides continuous discovery across identities, infrastructure, workloads and data, visualizing, prioritizing and remediating cloud security and compliance risks from development to deployment.

Tenable Cloud Security integrates into CI/CD pipelines for complete shift left security, and democratizes and accelerates organizational security efforts.
