Cloud Security Configuration Assessment

What is a Cloud Security Configuration Review?

With the cloud being a common entity in the world today, a lot of users believe that the cloud provider is responsible for maintaining the cloud tenant's security obligations from end-to-end. However, this is often not the case, and cloud tenants have a responsibility to maintain their own security posture by configuring their cloud services to conform with security best practices.

Our Cloud Security Configuration Review aims to get your cloud tenancy up to scratch and aligned with the cloud provider’s security best practice standards across areas such as authentication, data classification and privacy, and threat management, in conjunction with meeting the client’s own security and compliance obligations.

We will assess your AWS or Azure tenancy against industry-leading benchmarks such as the Center for Internet Security (CIS) foundations benchmark, so you can be sure that your environment will be scrutinised to the highest degree to ensure you have the strongest security posture.
