Infrastructure Testing & CI/CD Integration

Find and Fix Cloud Vulnerabilities at the Source

The Problem

Cloud Infrastructure Vulnerabilities are Discovered Too Late

Digital transformation is pushing every business to move faster. Companies must transform the way they work, enabling continuous integration and deployment by creating autonomous development teams that can move quickly and innovate at the speeds that modern businesses demand.

With the advent of Infrastructure as Code and DevOps, CI/CD tools often spin up needed cloud and application infrastructure without any form of unit testing or security checks. This gap in security testing allows infrastructure misconfigurations and vulnerabilities to pass right through dev, test, and staging, and slide right into production environments unseen. With something as simple as an incorrect setting or a poorly chosen CloudFormation template, a developer can unintentionally expose a port or bucket to the world.

This means every day, DevOps personnel and automated solutions like CloudFormation and Terraform could be automating vulnerabilities into a cloud environment. Today there is no solution focused on catching these issues during the development lifecycle.

Alternatives

‘Over the Top’ Cloud Infrastructure Auditing

There are a myriad of options on the market that will look for cloud vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, but these solutions often catch issues too late and create a sea of vulnerabilities that are costly to understand and fix. Virtually all of these tools work by evaluating an entire cloud account and represent an “outside looking in security assessment” that is not well integrated into the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).

A popular approach to testing is the idea of Shifting Left, which is focused on moving security and other testing earlier in the SDLC process to prevent later delays. Tacking on security as an afterthought slows companies down, so modern businesses need a security solution that bakes seamless into their CI/CD pipeline.


Solution

Shift Left & Cloud Infrastructure Testing

CloudCoreo enables integrated infrastructure tests as part of your DevOps workflow and CI/CD pipeline. Prevent security issues from getting released into production and harden your application infrastructure deployments to be secure-by-design.


Deploy Time Checks
All changes to cloud accounts are scanned in real-time and present immediate results to the developer making the changes


Jenkins Integration
Block or rollback pipeline jobs with critical violations to ensure security risks never make it to prod


Application Infrastructure Scans
Leverage application specific infrastructure, OS hardening, and application checks
