Top enterprise cloud security recommendations{||| today| right now| 2022| from Know where your data is. Know it’s classified properly. Confidently identify and monitor critical resources with total assurance. Protecting sensitive data is the core mission of the Sonrai platform. We help you unearth data, classify it, tag it, and monitor all activity around critical resources — including actions inside databases and secret stores. Defending the identity-to-data attack path requires protection from both ends, made possible with cloud data leak prevention. See even more details on Least Privilege. Out-of-the-box remediation: Advanced workflow capabilities and a library of custom remediation and prevention options – including prebuilt and custom bots – mean things get fixed fast.

An identity can use multiple different capabilities to create a path to data or change its initial privileges. Assuming a role, they can use the role’s privilege escalation capabilities to access a new right to change privileges, and then from there change the permissions of their original group. While cloud or IAM providers show discrete permissions, and even certain excessive permissions, Sonrai monitors and reveals effective permissions, which account for multiple complex lateral movements. Without Sonrai, these complex paths remain hidden and represent enormous enterprise risk. Maintain least privilege in the right places.

That cloud security is a growing concern and that identities (specifically, non-person identities) are a critical factor of it is not surprising to us at all. To give an example of scale, Sonrai measures 30,000 unique permissions across all three major clouds with 17 new permissions being added every day. Think about that, with the rapid growth both in the usage of the cloud, and the complexity of Identity Management, how can even the most well-funded teams keep up? They don’t, and often times they operate with significant risks in their cloud, to which they are completely blind.

Understand lateral movement risk – no matter how complex. Identities, often representing services and non-human users, can inherit a series of roles, group memberships, and permission sets and chain them together to bridge a path to sensitive data. Sonrai provides a true, full view of identity access that understands and accounts for potential access via cloud-specific rights like privilege escalation, improper separation of duties, or abuse of the “confused deputy problem.”

In addition to our own agentless scanning, Sonrai’s open platform ingests vulnerability data from third-party scanning tools to add risk context and increase the ROI from your other security investments. Sonrai lets you seamlessly fill in the gaps across your other detection tools with data about host and environment, so response decisions are always based on prioritized risk, not just CVSS scores. Security is absolutely foundational for any large-scale migration to the public cloud. Sonrai Security and the Sonrai Dig platform is central to the World Fuel Services cloud security operating model. The elimination of identity and data risks, automation, and continuous monitoring has transformed our cloud security operations, and helped accelerate our cloud migration. See more info on
