Securing cloud deployments can be a very challenging task due to the fact that new resources can be provisioned or existing resources changed in a matter of seconds, thus opening opportunities for attackers to get in. Without appropriate monitoring processes in place, it is relatively easy to make a mistake. In fact, there are many documented cases where such mistakes have resulted in substantial data breaches.
Some cloud providers like AWS does provide some builtin mechanism to exercise a level of monitoring over new cloud resources although these features often do not match real-world attacker patterns which have been perfect by actual attackers.
SecApps Scout offers a transparent, and fully automated cloud discovery and recon solution. With SecApps Scout you can automatically detect changes in your cloud infrastructure and as a result, mitigate potentially disastrous data-breaches before they occur.
