Check Point CloudGuard CNAPP enhancements provide detailed context and visibility with a comprehensive, prevention-first CNAPP solution across cloud environments and across the software development lifecycle.
SINGAPORE, February 1, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CPX APAC — Checkpoint® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a global provider of cybersecurity solutions, introduces a new risk management engine with enhancements to Check Point CloudGuard Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). New capabilities add intelligent risk prioritization, agentless scanning, entitlement management, and pipeline security. With a focus on context, speed, and automation, new capabilities operationalize cloud security, removing the complexity and overhead noise associated with traditional standalone cloud security alerts, allowing security teams to extend their visibility from code to cloud across the application lifecycle. Allows you to focus on comprehensive threat protection. , while supporting DevOps agility.
Cloud adoption and digital transformation continue to accelerate. The 2022 Cloud Security Report reveals that 35% of respondents run more than 50% of their workloads in the cloud. However, 72% are very concerned about cloud security and 76% are hampered by the complexity of managing multiple cloud vendors, often due to misconfigurations, lack of visibility and cyberattacks. at risk to Additionally, the survey revealed that misconfigurations are considered the number one cause of security-related incidents. This may be due to the need for around-the-clock security operations and alert fatigue.
Melinda Marks, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) said: By prioritizing and efficiently executing the most impactful actions to mitigate security risks, you can stay ahead of the curve and effectively manage security. ”
Effective Risk Management (ERM) kicks off with Cloud Identity & Entitlement Management (CIEM), Agentless Workload Posture (AWP), and pipeline security tools, plus Check Point CloudGuard offers smart risk prioritization. , enabling teams to quickly eliminate critical risks. Vulnerabilities such as misconfiguration and excessive privileged access based on severity across the software development lifecycle. The collaborative deliverables companies receive are simple, easy to understand, and focused on the threats that matter most to them, reducing the complexity that was once a challenge. Minimizing this complexity also reduces the threat landscape.
TJ Gonen, vice president of cloud security at Check Point Software, said: “By adding Effective Risk Management and enhancing Check Point CloudGuard’s CNAPP service, we are enabling organizations to shift CNAPP left and take a prevention-first approach to cloud security that is easier to manage.” With contextual AI and a risk scoring engine, security teams no longer need to manually determine which alerts should be remediated first.By removing this burden, customers can confidently We can focus on moving more demanding workloads to the cloud.”
Check Point CloudGuard combines modern tools with new-generation CNAPP capabilities to empower security professionals while removing barriers to DevSecOps with ShiftLeft tools. Check Point CloudGuard harnesses the power and potential of integration while leveraging its operational value to the end user.
effective risk management: CloudGuard’s ERM engine prioritizes risk and provides actionable remediation guidance based on full context including workload state, identity permissions, attack vector analysis, and application business value. increase. Security teams can now focus on critical threats and manage “least effective dose” security for maximum impact.
Cloud identity and entitlement management: CIEM’s capabilities understand the effective entitlements of users and cloud services, identify exposures and risks, and automatically generate explicit least-privilege role recommendations to reduce access and eliminate unused privileges. to cancel. With her CIEM embedded in the ERM, users can understand their entitlements and enforce least privileges across cloud environments.
Agentless workload posture: AWP extends the visibility of CloudGuard’s agentless infrastructure to your workloads. AWP scans and identifies risks such as misconfigurations, malware detections, vulnerabilities, and secrets across all cloud workloads, including virtual machines, containers, and serverless functions. This agentless deployment model gives security teams deep visibility into workload security at scale without impacting performance.
Pipeline security: The Pipeline Security feature fully integrates with Spectral products to detect and resolve misconfigurations, secrets, and vulnerabilities within CloudGuard. Developer-first security extends workload protection from her CI/CD to the pipeline, fixing issues before they reach production. Security teams can shift CNAPP left to secure cloud applications from the start.
