Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)

Improve your overall security and compliance posture with a unified platform that identifies and remediates cloud misconfigurations and vulnerabilities across all major public cloud providers.


Configuration errors: the biggest threat to public cloud security

As you adopt multicloud environments and cloud native services, it can be difficult to understand which configuration options create risk. Shared security responsibilities, a lack of visibility, and general cloud complexity make it harder to know your deployed assets and resources are secure.


As such, a single configuration error can expose sensitive data, leaving your organization vulnerable to attack and potentially dire legal and financial implications.




What’s driving the need for a CSPM solution?

Complex governance
Inconsistent security tooling and baselining across development life cycles and multiple clouds make security governance challenging
Data exposure
Misconfiguration is one of the most common causes of data exposure, costing organizations time, money, and reputation
Compliance violations
With application deployment and use spread across locations and groups, unified assurance is complex and time-consuming


“Security and risk management leaders should invest in cloud security posture management (CSPM) processes and tools to proactively identify and remediate cloud security risks.”

Cloud security posture management (CSPM)

CSPM policies are built natively into Zscaler Posture Control, a comprehensive cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) that identifies, prioritizes, and remediates risk in cloud infrastructure and native apps deployed across multicloud environments.

CSPM proactively identifies and remediates misconfigurations in IaaS and PaaS to reduce risk and ensure compliance across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud and maintain a sound security posture. With the broadest coverage of pre-built policies mapped across compliance standards and security best practices, it helps security teams enforce guardrails for secure, compliant deployments that improve DevOps efficiency.


What can CSPM do for you?

Secure multicloud infrastructure
Gain comprehensive visibility and control over public cloud resources and services to simplify compliance, governance, and security monitoring
Enforce built-in best practices
Benchmark cloud configurations against popular industry and regulatory frameworks and apply best practices, customize policies to unify security across multicloud environments, and scale compliance efforts
Remediate critical risks
Identify, prioritize, and remediate critical misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and policy violations to secure cloud resources and services
Reduce complexity
Easily integrate with DevOps and security tools to identify, prioritize, and respond to critical risks through alerts, workflows, and guided remediation

CSPM compliance assurance

Achieve and maintain compliance and strong cloud security posture as industry regulations shift. CSPM delivers unified visibility and control with a dedicated compliance dashboard and ensures your cloud infrastructure complies with specific or custom industry benchmarks.

CSPM helps you enforce compliance with pre-built or custom frameworks mapped to relevant controls with various cloud services, enabling governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) teams to assess security gaps and remediate compliance violations effectively.


Key benefits of Posture Control for CSPM

Cloud asset inventory and search
Gain comprehensive visibility and control of assets deployed across AWS, Azure, and GCP (e.g., configurations, IAM roles, security groups, shared storage, databases, serverless, containers)
Risk-based prioritization
Prioritize, focus, and fix critical security risks and violations before they’re exploited
Remediate violations
Leverage guided or automatic remediation to mitigate misconfigurations and violations
Compliance assurance
Automatically validate configurations against pre-built, mapped industry best practices and compliance frameworks or industry-specific custom frameworks
Alert integrations (ServiceNow, JIRA, Splunk, etc.)
Easily configure near-real-time, automatically prioritized alerts for policy violations and insecure deployments with detailed recommendations and remediation guidance
Secure DevOps
Seamlessly integrate with DevOps tools, continuously monitor and enforce security and compliance checks, and identify and remediate misconfigurations and insecure deployments in DevOps and infrastructure as code processes
