CLOUD SECURITY ASSESSMENT
As enterprises moved workloads to the cloud with the intent to reduce costs and increase scalability, so did attackers refocused their efforts to cloud services providers by using new TTPs, that included exploiting misconfigurations as well as social engineering to target the major cloud providers.
The LMNTRIX Cloud Security Assessment starts with an architectural review of your cloud security to unearth security vulnerabilities and provides hardening recommendations, followed by configuration review to identify areas of improvement and finally penetration testing to validate its effectiveness and assess your ability to detect, investigate and respond to attacker activity across all phases of the attack lifecycle on the most popular cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
The Cloud Security Assessment is ideal for enterprises using cloud service providers for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) or platform as a service (PaaS) models. These models rely on shared responsibilities between the cloud service provider and your organization for all security requirements. Our assessment focuses on your responsibilities specifically to strengthen your security posture.
The LMNTRIX Cloud Security Assessment generally runs for a five to six week period. The engagement starts with an initial document and architecture review conducted offsite by our experts.
Then we conduct multiple online workshops with your stakeholders where we learn about your cloud environment, any security models that are currently in place, and any security controls needed to meet your business needs.
This is followed by configuration reviews to ensures existing security controls are implemented effectively and identifies potential weaknesses to be hardened.
We complete the assessments by conducting external and internal penetration testing to validate the effectiveness of your existing controls and configurations and assess your ability to detect, investigate and respond to attacker activity across all phases of the attack lifecycle
Finally, the reporting will deliver technical recommendations to harden the cloud environment, enhance visibility and detection and improve processes to reduce the risk of compromise.
