Conducting business in a cloud environment presents unique security challenges, including achieving and maintaining compliance with regulations that were designed with traditional computing and business environments in mind.
Runtime protection solution, Intezer Protect, supports organizations in securing their cloud while also achieving compliance. The platform provides unparalleled visibility into cloud workloads, allowing for efficient monitoring, protection, auditing and reporting. These are core components of all common regulatory frameworks.
Implementing Intezer Protect for cloud workloads can help enterprises of all sizes meet and maintain their compliance posture for three widely applicable industry standards and regulations:
- The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requires all organizations that process, store or transmit payment cardholder data to follow standard security practices in order to accept or process payment cards. The PCI Security Standards Council recognizes that using cloud computing and/or virtualization for processing, storing, or transmitting payment card data requires additional security considerations. As a result, they have developed supplemental guidelines to facilitate maintaining PCI DSS controls in cloud environments
- The HIPAA Security Rule requires organizations that handle electronic Personal Health Information (e-PHI) to protect this data using maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards that fall into four general requirements
- SOC 2 is a reporting standard for third party attestations about controls at a service organization. The controls reported in SOC 2 reports are based on the Trust Service Principles defined by AICPA: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. Limited visibility into cloud workloads introduces significant challenges to completing a SOC 2 audit without receiving exceptions
