Ermetic for AWS Cloud Security
Proactively managing security risks in AWS cloud infrastructure is a major challenge for enterprises looking to protect business-critical applications and data. The inherent gaps in coverage and visibility offered by disparate native AWS tools make it difficult to detect and prioritize cloud security risks.
Find out how Ermetic’s holistic platform and identity-first approach drive actionable insights and streamline security operations for AWS and multicloud environments.
Gartner, Inc, Innovation Insight for Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms Report August 2021
Organizations have manually stitched together DevSecOps with 10 or more disparate security tools — some new and some old — each with siloed responsibilities and a limited view of application risk.
Roadblocks to Protecting Your AWS Environment
The flexibility and agility of the cloud has enabled organizations to dramatically minimize time-to-value for their customers. However, the shift to cloud has made answering even basic security questions like “How many entitlements are excessive?” or “ Where do we need to improve compliance?” or “What are my top risks?” extremely difficult.
Existing solutions, including cloud-native tools, offer little relief. Teams often leverage a combination of tools to get the job done, but switching between multiple solutions to assess, investigate and remediate cloud security risks is no longer a viable option.
Cloud demands a different approach to security. Ermetic dives deep to find the risks within your AWS or multicloud environments and offers step-by-step remediation – all while making even the most complex problems simple.
Complete Cloud Security for Amazon Web Services
Ermetic is a comprehensive, identity-first Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) for AWS. The agentless solution unifies and automates asset discovery, risk analysis, runtime threat detection and compliance — across cloud infrastructure, workloads, identities and data. It identifies, prioritizes and remediates security and compliance flaws with pinpoint accuracy.
Ermetic helps you shift left by hardening your AWS environment as part of the CI/CD pipeline. The platform democratizes security across devops, security and IAM teams.
Gain Continuous Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)
Simplify cloud compliance through a single platform that continuously scans configurations and resources across clouds, identifies violations and automates remediation.With Ermetic’s intelligent CSPM, analyze configuration data and cloud assets against industry best practices, compliance frameworks and custom policies.
Meet AWS-specific data privacy mandates, security best practices and other industry benchmarks using built-in compliance templates or custom policies tailored to match your organization’s needs to ensure that your AWS environment is truly secure.
- Get a continuously updated picture of your cloud inventory and activity
- Prioritize risks and auto remediate based on business impact
- Demonstrate your ability to meet key data privacy mandates including AWS Well Architected, PCI-DSS, GDPR, HIPAA and many more.
Manage AWS IAM risks and enforce least privilege (CIEM)
Get equipped with actionable visibility, uncovering all identities and access paths across all AWS accounts and data stores. Ermetic provides full stack risk analysis across identities and entitlements, resource policies, and network and cloud configurations — identifying toxic combinations, prioritizing and remediating risk with high accuracy.
Manage AWS IAM risks and enforce least privilege access and zero trust by finding, auditing and removing excess permissions.
- Visibility into excessive permissions, toxic scenarios, network exposure and more
- Auto-generate least privilege AWS IAM policies based on actual usage data
- Detect and investigate suspicious behavior in real-time
Shift-Left with Infrastructure as Code Scanning (IaC)
Developers and DevOps teams leverage Ermetic to avoid errors, align with security policies and best practices, and harden cloud infrastructure as part of the CI/CD pipeline. The platform scans IaC for misconfigurations and risks in native development tools including Jenkins, BitBucket, CircleCI, GitHub and GitLab.
- Identify misconfigurations and compliance violations in code
- Automatically remediate by integrating fixes in existing workflows, ticketing systems and source code repositories
- Shift left to empower developers to remove configuration flaws prior to production
Agentless Vulnerability Scanning & Workload Protection (CWP)
Ermetic’ takes an agentless approach to scan and detect critical workload risks. Its unified protection provides teams with a centralized, single point of visibility and control across all their AWS environments.
By combining insights on vulnerabilities, exposed secrets / sensitive data, malware and misconfigurations, security and DevSecOps teams can reveal and effectively assess the full severity of a workload vulnerability.
- Gain deep visibility and context into cloud workload risk with intelligence gathered across virtual machines, serverless functions, container images and Kubernetes clusters
- Correlate vulnerabilities across OS packages, applications and libraries with additional workload characteristics to prioritize remediation efforts
