Reducing misconfigurations, monitoring malicious activity, and preventing unauthorized access are foundational activities necessary to ensure security and compliance of applications and data in the cloud. As criminals become more sophisticated in their abilities to exploit cloud misconfiguration vulnerabilities, security teams need a smarter approach to prevent security breaches.

CloudHealth Secure State is an intelligent cloud security and compliance monitoring platform that helps organizations reduce risk and protect millions of cloud resources by remediating security violations and scaling best practices at cloud speed.

Multi-Cloud Security

Build a unified approach for managing risks across clouds

Real-Time Detection

Detect security events and violations within minutes

Deeper Insights

Graphically visualize resources, relationships and risks

Risk Prioritization

Focus on resources with maximum security exposure

Automated Response

Automate reports, alerts and remediation of violations

Team Collaboration

Enable security, operations, and developer teams
According to Gartner, through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault and 90% of the organizations that fail to control public cloud use will inappropriately share sensitive data.1

How CloudHealth Secure State Works

Foundational to CloudHealth Secure State is an Interconnected Cloud Security Model, an intermediate data layer that leverages cloud APIs, change events, and native threat data to help organizations model entire multicloud environment in a single place. The service automatically applies to this data lake, a set of best practices based on pre-defined security & compliance benchmarks as well as organization-specific custom rules to surface violations that increase risk.

Information security teams can quickly visualize misconfigured resources, other assets that can be exposed through these misconfigurations, and track historical changes to get a better understanding of overall risk. As objects, data, and relationships change, the service intelligently detects new violations in near real time and enables users to send alerts or initiate automated actions to immediately eliminate security risk.

Delivered as a Service, CloudHealth Secure State is easy to onboard. Once configured, CloudHealth Secure State helps security prioritize violations, visualize context, report issues, and plan actions necessary to remediate risks.

In cloud, security is a shared responsibility between a cloud provider and a customer’s security and application teams. CloudHealth Secure State helps organizations operationalize security by supporting multiple cloud providers and enabling security administrators to distribute insights across application owners at real-time speed. With easy access to security findings and actions via API, application teams can proactively verify configurations at the time of deployment and minimize the cost associated with implementing security policies.

CloudHealth Secure State enables us to visualize risk with a graph view, so that we can easily convey the impact of changes to key stakeholders – for example, we can show that something is not just affecting a server but also certain databases that are connected to it.
