Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is CSPM?

A: Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) automates the security of cloud infrastructure by identifying misconfigurations and compliance violations. CSPM tools leverage API integrations with your cloud providers

Q: What are key CSPM use cases?


  • Static config management: Identifies risky configuration settings and provides visibility into the current security posture of your cloud environment.
  • Cloud Compliance: Maintains and provides a path to compliance for security frameworks such as CIS, NIST, PCI, etc.
  • Asset Discovery: Asset inventory across your cloud accounts to discover when new items are added and if they are secure and compliant.
  • Multi-cloud threat detection: Identifies misconfigurations such as public storage buckets, exposed security groups, leaked secrets/credentials, malicious activity, and unauthorized behavior to protect your cloud accounts and services.

Q: What is continuous cloud security?

A: Continuous cloud security unifies cloud security posture management and cloud threat detection in a single workflow. Reduce risk by correlating cloud misconfigurations (via configuration metadata through the cloud APIs) and risky behavior across accounts and services (via cloud activity logs such as AWS CloudTrail, GCP audit logs).

Q: What is the difference between continuous cloud security and traditional CSPM?

A: Traditional Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) relies on periodic checks of static configurations. Continuous cloud security augments static checks by parsing cloud logs to identify unexpected activity that could indicate configuration changes that increase risk or malicious actions. These checks need to be continuous because attackers are regularly looking for opportunities to exploit configuration errors and unprotected services.

Q: How are CSPM tools deployed?

A: Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools are deployed in an agentless model. You can connect your cloud accounts and start discovering cloud assets, scan config data, detect misconfigurations, and identify compliance violations.

Q: What is the difference between CSPM and CWPP?

A: Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) protects the cloud control plane, while Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) revolves around securing workloads running in the cloud. Both focus on protecting sensitive data in the cloud.

Q: What is the difference between CSPM and CIEM?

A: CSPM addresses compliance, including workloads, infrastructure configuration changes and management. Cloud Identity Entitlement Management (CIEM) solves security risks associated with inactive, overprivileged accounts, super-identities and access across the cloud stack.
