Key Challenges Addressed
While cloud infrastructure is increasingly common to modern organisations, it can create complexity. Cloud workloads often produce high volumes of actionable data and detailed information that can lead to compromise if implemented or configured incorrectly.
Given the scale of the major cloud providers, organisations rightly trust them to ensure appropriate cloud security, vulnerability management and data protection. However, this can lead to security teams underestimating the importance of their role during the implementation phase and result in environments that contain vulnerabilities or misconfigurations.
For certain industries, consumers, customers, and regulators may also require independent assurance (i.e. cloud infrastructure testing) that their business’s systems are operating securely. This cannot be done internally and thus requires a trusted penetration testing partner.
Here are just some of the benefits of trusting Bridewell to provide you with a Cloud Infrastructure Assessment:
