    Announcing Fregot: An Open Source Toolkit for Working with Rego and OPA

    Drew Wright

    Adopting the Rego policy language and the Open Policy Agent (OPA) engine for Fugue’s cloud security SaaS product has paid real dividends for us and our customers. It enables Fugue users to easily create custom policies for their cloud infrastructure environments using open source tools, and it’s helped us implement out-of-the-box policy as code support for complex compliance standards, including CIS Foundations Benchmarks, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO 27001, NIST 800-53, PCI, and SOC 2 (and our own Fugue Best Practices to identify advanced cloud misconfiguration risks).

    Unsecured Dev Accounts Put Production at Risk

    Drew Wright

    Most organizations now recognize the importance of cloud security, likely due in large part to the sharp uptick in cloud-based data breaches resulting from cloud misconfiguration. Achieving and maintaining the secure configuration of their cloud infrastructure resources—sometimes referred to as Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)—is now a priority for most cloud engineering teams.

    Using Open Policy Agent (OPA) for Cloud Security and Compliance

    Drew Wright

    Just like the challenges of managing large cloud infrastructure operations led to the development of infrastructure as code, ensuring the security and compliance of those environments led to policy as code. Cloud infrastructure environments are simply too vast, complex and dynamic to address with traditional security approaches such as manual audits and checklists.

    Cloud Security Posture Management: Benefits and Uses

    Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) is a category defined by Gartner to address the growing needs of public cloud IaaS and PaaS services to address the challenges of misconfiguration. According to Gartner, nearly all successful attacks on cloud services are the result of customer misconfiguration, mismanagement, and mistakes. A single misconfiguration can expose hundreds of thousands of systems or highly sensitive data to the public internet.

    Zombie Cloud Infrastructure is a Major Security Risk

    Drew Wright

    One aspect of cloud computing platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is that it’s easier to create infrastructure resources than it is to destroy them. Even more challenging is maintaining full visibility over all of your cloud resources. Corey Quinn once said, and I’m paraphrasing, “the only way to see everything you have running in your AWS account is to look at your AWS bill.”

    Developers Now Own Security, and That's a Good Thing

    Josh Stella

    Software is eating the world. In the age of cloud computing, developers now own the security posture of your enterprise because the cloud is fully software-defined and programmable. If that scares you, it's because you haven't given your developers the tools to create secure systems. The good news is that you can, but you need to change how you think about security.

    Cloud Network Security 101: AWS Security Groups vs NACLs

    Becki Lee

    In part two of the Cloud Network Security blog series, we will discuss two methods of securing your network within Amazon Web Services: security groups and network access control lists (NACLs). Both resource types act as a virtual firewall to protect your network, and they have some similarities. For example, security groups and NACLs both use sets of inbound and outbound rules to control traffic to and from resources in a VPC.
