Cloud assessments based on industry best practices

Regular assessments of your cloud accounts based on CIS Benchmarks.

The Secure Ideas Difference

Do you want to make sure your cloud account is secure but not sure if you are following industry best practices? At Secure Ideas make it our business to become experts in the same cloud concepts and technologies that we assess. In fact, over 90% of our own infrastructure is running in the cloud.

Cloud Scout is a cloud configuration scanning service that is designed to provide you with insight on how well your cloud configurations measure up to industry standards. As with most of our Scout line of services, we take the hybrid approach of combining automation and manual expert analysis to provide you with quality, actionable results.

Our Engagement Process

Scout subscriptions are a recurring testing model. During each test, our consultants follow as set of procedures that build upon the previous tests. Our process is as follows:

  1. Scan: Our Cloud Scout solution scans the configurations of your cloud account using a limited audit role.
  2. Audit: The configurations are then compared against a large range of audit rules, including the CIS Benchmarks plus additional rules we have developed.
  3. Review: The results are reviewed by an expert to make certain they are correct and complete.
  4. Report: The final results are compiled into a report, including a description of each finding and recommended steps to resolve.
