We Help You to Find the Best Solution

Cloud computing is undoubtedly one of the most significant trends of the last ten years. It is predicted that end-user spending on cloud computing will reach $600 billion by 2025, with most enterprise data centers expected to move to the cloud by 2025.

Most boards and IT decision-makers focus their concerns on the costs and processes related to moving to the cloud. Much less attention is given to the cyber risks that such a move entails, with an unrealistic assumption that the cloud (providers) will solve all cybersecurity challenges. Recent evidence suggests that 45% of all data breaches are cloud based.

Good to know

By 2025, 99% of cloud security failures are the fault of the customer, not the service provider

The underlying principle of cloud computing – outsourcing computing infrastructure and maintenance while having direct access to resources whenever needed – often comes with many misconceptions. We often see organizations that move to a cloud infrastructure operating under the belief that they have also outsourced their security. However, it is essential to keep in mind that cloud providers do not take full responsibility for protecting your systems.

With many organizations left unaware of their security-related responsibilities, it is not surprising that cloud misconfigurations pose the most significant risk of a successful cybersecurity attack. However, by appropriately managing vulnerabilities in cloud configurations, the success of attacks across all industries and regions can be prevented.

CSPM solution represents as the most efficient way for an organization starting from scratch to begin building its cloud security functions

Cloud security posture management is a tool that primarily concentrates on continuous assessment and compliance monitoring to manage cloud security risks. CSPM tools can be foundational to managing security in the cloud through increased visibility, policy management, and prioritized alerts. The main benefits of CSPM lie in possible multicloud visibility, custom security policy capabilities, real-time compliance report generation, and a basic alert generation functionality.

A CSPM system offers the most expansive set of foundational capabilities. We recommend that organizations start to develop their cloud security function by implementing a CSPM solution in the short term as a foundational capability enhancement in the cloud environment. In further expansion stages, cloud workload protection and cloud access security brokers up to fully comprehensive Zero Trust Network Access / SASE solutions are also useful.

these are five criteria when choosing a CSPM tool

From Our Perspective


Core set of technical capabilities

To enable maximum risk reduction, the vendor should offer core technical capabilities such as anomalous behavior monitoring and compliance reporting.


Compatibility with existing infrastructure

The vendor’s compatibility with the organization’s existing and planned cloud and security infrastructure is key to leveraging all capabilities in the IT environment. Furthermore, the CSPM tool should integrate with existing SIEM/XDR tools to enrich their log sources and monitoring capabilities.


Implementation and operation complexity

The vendor should be able to implement the CSPM solution themselves. At the same time, the organization should be able to operate the solution independently, with only limited needed vendor support. In addition, comparing the required time for implementation with the organization’s security roadmap should be considered here.


CSPM assessment capabilities

The organization should evaluate the capabilities of deployed CSPM providers on an ongoing basis – during scheduled assessments as well as event-based on demand. It is important that the data remain within the organization.


Possibility of a change of provider at short notice

With the many capability fluctuations that occur in the CSPM market, an organization should give themselves the flexibility to transition to a new provider that may develop more advanced capabilities if necessary.
