Businesses today must leverage technology faster and more cost effectively, either because they’re disrupting a market or because a competitor is disrupting them. That requires leveraging cloud platforms. While they’re generally secure, configuring and using cloud platforms correctly has proven to be a challenge.
Most organizations are rapidly adopting SaaS applications, and many are leveraging AWS or Azure to scale production workloads and research and develop new applications. Although businesses benefit from expanded IT capabilities, data breaches due to misconfiguration of cloud services have increased.
To adopt cloud successfully and enable teams to move at competitive speed, businesses require visibility into who is accessing key enterprise cloud services, what activity is taking place, and how these services are administered. Cloud Security Monitoring provides Discovery, Configuration/Policy Assessment and Activity Analytics to ensure the enterprise cloud is deployed and used securely.
For one company, monitoring access to Microsoft solutions was becoming increasingly complex. Through a single interface, the business can see where people are connecting, what the accounts are, who accessed what data, and when they logged into various applications.
When security analysts began monitoring a U.S. company’s Microsoft Exchange account, geographic data was one stream that was closely observed. In one instance, a user logged in from Kuwait, which raised alarms.
