We’re thrilled to announce that Fugue is now offering a Software-as-a-Service solution for enforcing continuous cloud infrastructure compliance, is now available (start your free trial here). We’re at AWS re:Invent 2018 all week, so stop by booth 2305 to learn more.
Enterprises operating at scale on clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS) need assurance that their cloud infrastructure always adheres to compliance policy and never drifts. But unlike the datacenter, today’s cloud environments are API-driven and highly dynamic. When change is the only constant, enforcing continuous compliance is a major challenge. Failure here can result in costly fines, or worse—a critical data breach.
What better way to shake off the Thanksgiving food coma than the annual tradition of heading to Las Vegas forAWS re:Invent; which just keeps getting significantly bigger every year! Of course Fugue will be there again this year showcasing how our customers are ensuring the security and compliance of their AWS infrastructure andautomatically remediating cloud misconfigurationto prevent data breaches and system downtime events.
Since its founding, Fugue has set out to transform how cloud infrastructure is kept safe and secure. Today, we’re thrilled to announce our strategic partnership and development agreement withIn-Q-Tel (IQT)to help advance its mission for U.S. government agencies.
As more enterprises adopt the cloud, the issue of cloud security has become a top priority. The cloud is fundamentally different than the datacenter. Just as it requires a shift in how we think about architecture and operations, we need to shift our thinking on cloud security and compliance and bake it into DevOps and CI/CD processes (i.e.,DevSecOps) rather than bolt it on later. Failing to do so puts your organization at serious risk of a critical data breach.
We are thrilled to announce that the Fugue Compliance Suite is available today. The Compliance Suite is a set of validation libraries for provisioning and orchestrating infrastructure with Fugue. The prepackaged libraries help to enforce security and regulatory controls specified in compliance frameworks such as NIST 800-53, HIPAA, and GDPR, as well as best practices such as the AWS CIS Benchmarks.
Last week, Fugue released its Cloud Infrastructure Misconfiguration Report, which presents the results of our survey of more than 300 IT and security professionals from enterprise-level organizations. What surprised many of us at Fugue the most was the steep cost incurred by enterprises in their attempt to manage cloud misconfiguration, which is still largely a complex, manual process in an otherwise automated world of cloud. You can read more about that in The Cost of Cloud Misconfiguration Whack-a-Mole.
Today, Fugue released its Cloud Infrastructure Misconfiguration Report , which presents the results of our survey of IT and security professionals from more than 300 enterprise organizations. At Fugue we’re out to solve cloud misconfiguration, so we live and breathe this stuff every day. But even we were surprised by the survey’s findings. The risks due to cloud misconfiguration are generally acknowledged. 92 percent of respondents are concerned about these risks, and 82 percent reported security and compliance incidents resulting from them. The problem is so big, Gartner’s Neil MacDonald estimates that, by 2020, 80 percent of cloud breaches will be due to misconfiguration and human error. Yes, cloud misconfiguration risk is real. But what's the cost of managing it? That said, I’d...
Cloud infrastructure misconfiguration has emerged as the number one cause of data breaches in the cloud. Rather than application software vulnerabilities, it’s actually misconfigured network settings, firewall rules, storage access policies, and other cloud resources that put our data at most risk. We’ve talked a lot about the risk of cloud misconfiguration and why it’s critically important to have a Mean Time to Remediation (MTTR) for cloud infrastructure misconfiguration that’s measured in minutes, not hours or days. But why are cloud misconfiguration MTTRs more often measured in hours or days? And how many man-hours are teams wasting in their attempts to manage this problem? We work with a wide variety of enterprises using cloud at scale—from federal agencies to Fortune 500...
Organizations are excited about the cloud and what it can do for their business. Cloud computing offers the promise of services at elastic speed and DevOps teams are embracing the opportunity to innovate at speed and efficiently scale. The ability to easily bring up thousands of servers within minutes, however, also introduces security and compliance issues. Security and compliance issues are often neglected or avoided because of the perception that adding security will dramatically slow the pace of development. DevOps and security teams may seem to have opposing interests at times. Development teams who deploy apps in the cloud are used to moving fast and having the freedom to deploy whatever resources they need to accomplish their goals. They are not security and compliance...
