How-To

FAQs

What types of misconfigurations can CSPM detect?
Common misconfigurations include overly permissive access controls, unencrypted data storage, open network ports, and non-compliant resource configurations.
How does CSPM help with compliance?
CSPM tools can continuously assess cloud environments against compliance frameworks like HIPAA, PCI DSS, GDPR, etc. and provide compliance reporting.
How often should CSPM scans be performed?
Most organizations run continuous CSPM scans, but at minimum, scans should be performed daily or after any significant changes to cloud infrastructure.
