While Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environments provide customers with choice and flexibility, they also potentially increase the organization’s surface area for security risks. With the new features in McAfee MVISION Cloud for Microsoft Azure, security groups can integrate policy natively into DevOps processes and toolsets to discover security issues before systems are deployed.
MVISION Cloud for Microsoft Azure helps customers “Shift Left” with security to preemptively improve compliance and reduce risk within their cloud infrastructure. Security is pushed earlier into the DevOps process so that security professionals can catch risky configurations before they become a threat in production. This gives organizations the ability to confidently deploy applications in the cloud with greater speed and efficiency.
Shifting Left gives organizations the ability to avoid common security-related issues.
According to Cloud-Native: The Infrastructure-as-a-Service Adoption and Risk Report, 99 percent of IaaS misconfigurations go unnoticed.
New capabilities include:
- Security Scans for Azure Resource Manager Templates: Allows users to discover risky configuration issues or violations in Azure Resource Manager Templates prior to deploying resources.
- Inline integration with the tools developers use: Frictionless security checks inside the devops pipeline through API integration with popular tools including Microsoft Git, Github, and Azure Devops. Security Feedback is natively integrated into the build process saving time, effort, and frustration.
- Unified Cloud Security for Azure Ecosystem: Allows developers to enjoy the freedom of choice to leverage the Azure services they want knowing security will be built-in by design (IaaS/PaaS/Container services) aligning closely to the Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) best practices.
- Preemptive Risk Avoidance: Assures compliance with regulatory frameworks and reduces the likelihood of data loss, abuse or fines associated with improper security controls by highlighting security findings before they become security incidents.
