Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is a subscription model with term licensing that is usually yearly. This includes, not only the product, but support and maintenance. It is based on cloud assets. Therefore, if you have 100 cloud assets, those cloud assets are measured based on evaluation or transactions. For example, if I'm evaluating that cloud asset for CIS compliance, PCI compliance, and AWS best practices, that asset gets evaluated three times, as those are three transactions. However, the license model is based on peak asset usage. So, over a year, if you deploy 100, 1000, 500, and then 2000 assets, you will be charged for the 2000 peak of assets managed by Helix Cloud Security.""The pricing is based on an annual subscription, upfront, and it's based on cloud assets. Whether your assets are in Azure and AWS combined, the tool tells you how many assets are being scanned and that's the number used for pricing."

Overview

BMC Helix Cloud Security (formerly TrueSight Cloud Security) automates cloud resource configuration security checks and remediation across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.  With Helix Cloud Security, configurations of cloud resources and containers are managed consistently, securely, and with an audit trail.  Because it is SaaS, there is nothing to install.  You can literally begin automating your cloud security posture management in minutes.

•   Automated cloud configuration security
posture management (CSPM) using Center
for Internet Security (CIS) policies for
cloud assets on AWS, Azure, and GCP

•   Automated remediation - no coding or scripting required

•   Ready-to-use policy packs for CIS, PCI, and GDPR, and support for custom security and compliance policies

•   Full-stack container configuration security, including Kubernetes pods, host, Docker daemon,
image, and Docker container

•   Integration with incident & change
management 

•   Alerts, reports, exception management, RBAC, and multi-tenancy




Organizations are embracing multiple public cloud platforms, resulting in increased complexity of management which impacts security and risk. Additionally, the built-in security tools that come with various cloud platforms are unique to each, compounding the challenge of consistently managing risk across all clouds in a multi-cloud world. This challenge renders security operations time consuming and ineffective. As the attack surface expands, organizations need to protect from not only from risks of configuration and management of the application elements themselves, but also from risks originating via cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) and UIs.

FortiCWP offers security administrators and DevOps teams the ability to evaluate their cloud configuration security posture, detect potential threats originating from misconfiguration of cloud resources, analyze traffic across cloud resources (in and out of the cloud), and evaluate cloud configuration against best practices. It enables the ability to manage risk throughout multi-cloud infrastructures, provides regulatory compliance reporting, and integrates remediation into the cloud infrastructure lifecycle automation framework.
