Cloud Security Assessment
The CrowdStrike® Cloud Security Assessment provides actionable insights into security misconfigurations and deviations from recommended cloud security architecture to help clients prevent, detect, and recover from breaches..
Cloud computing offers many new possibilities and efficiencies for organizations as they migrate their applications to the cloud, both public and private. However, innovation and reliance on the cloud brings with it risks and security challenges:
Weak Cloud Settings
Hackers constantly try to exploit weak cloud configuration settings.
Common Cloud Misconfigurations
Common cloud misconfigurations continue to be the root cause of many security breaches.
Too Many Permissions
Account privileges with too many permissions and a lack of multifactor authentication undermine security.
Most cloud environments do not have proper logging enabled, making malicious activities difficult to identify.
The Benefits of a Cloud Security Assessment
Review of Systems
Thorough analysis of individual cloud-based systems and assessment of your entire environment to determine the full scope of potential attacks
Analysis of infrastructure
Comprehensive analysis of internal and external components of your cloud-hosted infrastructure
Identification of potential issues and detailed guidance on the best methods to mitigate and resolve them
Specific, detailed recommendations to improve your overall cloud security posture to help prevent, detect, and rapidly recover from breaches
What CrowdStrike Delivers
CrowdStrike Cloud Security Assessment tests and evaluates your cloud infrastructure to determine if the appropriate levels of security and governance have been implemented to counter inherent security challenges. The assessment identifies points of weakness and entry into the cloud infrastructure, looking for evidence of exploitation and outlining approaches to prevent future attacks.
The team conducts an in-depth analysis of individual systems and the environment to determine the full scope of a potential attack. This includes determining the initial point of entry and root cause of potential attacks; identifying the full scope of system(s) targeted in an attack; understanding the type of data affected by the attack; providing recommendations to prevent any future attacks; and conducting ongoing monitoring and hunting.
In migrating to the cloud, the likelihood that new vulnerabilities and threats will be introduced into your infrastructure increases. Penetration testing checks the internal and external components of a cloud-hosted infrastructure, including discovering vulnerabilities and leveraging them to demonstrate what an attacker could do; and evaluating your ability to detect malicious activity within your cloud infrastructure.
CrowdStrike also offers a substantial portfolio of services to help increase the security posture of your cloud infrastructure, document an effective response process and test your security against advanced threats in today’s evolving threat landscape. The following additional services may be worthy of consideration: Tabletop Exercise, Red Team Services and Playbook development.
