Cloud application security is a patchwork of cloud services offered today through various providers. This IDC Spotlight intends to elevate awareness of new services that provide a single way to manage cloud application security.
As businesses continue expanding their offerings through cloud providers, they are often challenged with ensuring cybersecurity is implemented properly within their cloud applications and cloud infrastructure environments. The need to ensure risks are managed before attacks or disruptions impact customers is paramount.
Cloud application security is now much more of a priority because of the growth of the attack surface and the number of vulnerabilities being exploited by attackers on an ongoing basis.
Organizations with cloud-based applications struggle with managing cybersecurity risks and maintaining compliance in an ongoing fashion. Cybersecurity teams struggle with managing cybersecurity for traditional environments, and the addition of cloud applications increases the challenge. There are organizations that may not have an in-house cybersecurity team managing cybersecurity in their cloud environments or even have enough staff for this added workload.
The Wipro's Cloud Application Risk Governance (CARG) platform applies a structured approach to application migration by conducting a rigorous risk assessment. It uses the results to recommend the set of base security controls needed to protect an application in Google Cloud based on a variety of parameters, including 27+ regulatory and compliance considerations. The platform continuously monitors controls based on Google Cloud and Wipro FullStride Cloud Services security best practices. It also provides a dynamic risk and compliance view of business applications and associated underlying Google Cloud services.
