C3M Launches Cloud Security Assessment Service in France with Acensi
22 November 2021, Cloud and Cyber Security Expo, Paris, Stand 08 - C3M, a leader in Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) and Cloud Identity and Entitlement Management (CIEM) has today announced the launch of its Cloud Security Assessment as a Service to the market in France. Taking it to market with its channel partner, Acensi, the leading cyber and cloud security specialist, the service will enable companies to gain immediate deep visibility into their cloud infrastructure and cloud security posture.
The fully automated, 100% API based and completely agent less service discovers all the cloud assets of an organisation and identifies risky configurations. Comparing baseline cloud security posture with industry best practices, the assessment service also checks the company’s resources against security policies and multiple compliance standards including GDPR and PCI.
“With nearly all security breaches expected to be the fault of the enterprise by next year, leading to costly repercussions, it’s imperative enterprises identify risks within their cloud infrastructure,” said Paddy Viswanathan, CEO and Founder, C3M. “Our automated security assessment is invaluable in being able to quickly highlight the point in time limitations and weaknesses within an organisation’s cloud. Acensi is an invaluable partner and has helped C3M secure a significant footprint in France and with the launch of the Cloud Security Assessment as a Service will help us gain greater market penetration.”
When migrating to the cloud, companies are faced with a unique set of challenges that they struggle to address that include visibility of cloud resources, security posture and skilled cloud resources. With 99% of misconfigurations going unnoticed, the C3M platform assesses the company’s cloud for misconfigurations and cloud best practice, generating reports in near real-time.
“As the cloud market continues to surge forwards, customers are quickly realising the complexity and challenges of cloud security and remaining compliant,” said Ben Boulnois, Managing Director at Acensi. “C3M is at the forefront of addressing those challenges and generating huge interest in France. The Cloud Security Assessment as a Service is an excellent tool to easily identify the risks within a customer’s cloud infrastructure in real time and will only increase interest and demand for C3M.”
The C3M Cloud Security Assessment as a Service works by the customer creating a read only service account that C3M use to onboard cloud accounts using the cloud providers API. Metadata of the cloud accounts are then pulled down using the APIs and the data is evaluated to check conformity to security and compliance policies.
Within 30 minutes, reports are produced with: an inventory of all cloud assets across AWS, GCP and Azure clouds; cloud best practice on misconfigurations across the cloud environment and policy compliance (including violating controls and recommendations how to fix them) and compliance checks with various security standards and regulations.
