Gives you a cohesive view into your security posture on cloud accounts

What is our primary use case?

Primarily, it is to understand the cloud baseline against regulatory controls. The primary use case is to identify unknown or unmitigated risks when it comes to security controls in a cloud workload or environment. Within that use case, it takes things, like CIS Compliance Controls, and determines if your workloads are compliant to those best practices. Therefore, the primary use cases are detection and identification. The secondary use case, which goes sort of hand in hand, is to enable operational controls in the form of remediation and actions. It not only can identify if a cloud resource… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The best feature is time to value. With very minimal effort, you are able to have a cohesive view into your security posture on one or multiple cloud accounts, particularly if you are dealing with multicloud. If you have Azure and AWS deployments, you might have multiple subscriptions in Azure and usually multiple accounts in AWS. You may even be doing some GCP work (around Google Cloud Platform). It's very difficult to manage a common set of policies, even less reporting, across multiple subscriptions, accounts, and cloud environments. What BMC Helix Cloud Security does is provide a unified view or single pane of glass as to your baseline. Then, it also facilitates the ability for Level 1 or 2 operations support to take action and report on security vulnerabilities."

One of the things that is now in big demand for BMC Helix Cloud Security is content. That's the next journey in its lifespan, making it easier for the community to share and collaborate on content for security controls that can be measured and remediated."

What other advice do I have?

Start early with this type of capability. Make it part of your cloud governance baseline if you want to leverage a product like BMC Helix Cloud Security from the get go. Make it part of your governance methodology, not after the fact. That's the biggest takeaway I could suggest. Don't implement a cloud governance and migrate to the cloud first, then later try to implement a governance method like BMC Helix Cloud Security provides, because it's a little too late. Otherwise, you will be detecting things that you could have addressed beforehand. Furthermore, my recommendation would be to include…
