Meet Data & Regulatory Mandates

Monitor, auto-remediate, and report on compliance using out-of-the-box policies for standards such as CIS, PCI, and HIPAA.

Maintaining compliance across your public cloud computing environment is a key business requirement, particularly if your organization operates in any regulated industry. However, the dynamic nature of the cloud makes this pretty challenging, especially if you manage compliance in multi-cloud environments. But with a little planning and the right security solution, you can ensure your organization stays compliant and secure across your cloud deployments.

Prisma Cloud

If your organization operates in a highly regulated industry, ensuring compliance across your public cloud computing environment is a key business requirement. However, the dynamic nature of the cloud makes this pretty challenging.

Control Identification

The first step in assessing compliance involves mapping your specific cloud usage and resource configurations to compliance controls across the various cloud services. Prisma Cloud has done the work of mapping granular controls for common compliance standards such as CIS, PCI, and HIPAA and provides hundreds of out-of-the-box policies for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.

Resource Discovery & Profiling

Due to the dynamic nature of the cloud, resources within the environment are constantly changing. Rest assured that Prisma Cloud will automatically discover a resource as soon as it is created and profiles it to understand which policies to assess. For example, as soon as a resource is discovered and identified to be a database, it can be assessed for controls such as encryption.

Continuous Monitoring & Remediation

Manual periodic audits are not effective for assessing the compliance posture of dynamic cloud environments. Prisma Cloud continuously monitors cloud computing resources for violations and automatically remediates issues. For example, if a database is created without encryption enabled, it can be automatically enabled.

Audit Reporting

In an audit, organizations are asked to prove compliance for a given time period. This poses significant challenges in public cloud computing environments where users are constantly making changes without a security review. Prisma Cloud not only enables you to report on your current compliance posture, but also maintains historical snapshots of your environment, enabling you to prove compliance for any past periods as well.
