In today’s day and age, deploying solutions and products on the cloud has become the new norm. However, managing your cloud infrastructure, implementing critical cloud security controls, and preventing vulnerabilities can become quite challenging.
Security & Compliance
Botmetric’s Security & Compliance simplifies the process of discovering and rectifying the threats as well as shortcomings in your AWS infrastructure by providing a comprehensive set of audits and recommendations, which saves a lot of time and makes eliminating unused Security Groups easy.
Botmetric’s Security & Compliance imbibes culture of continuous security and DevSecOps by automating industry best practices for cloud compliance and security. For an AWS user this simplifies the process of discovering and rectifying the threats.
Remediation of Security Threats with Botmetric
At Botmetric, we believe in simplifying cloud management for our customers. To amplify this, we provide the ‘click to fix’ feature for many of our Security & Compliance audits. This feature enables users to implement the best practices recommended by Botmetric simply with the click of a button. While saving a lot of time and effort, it also eliminates the possibility of human error. Moreover, rather than manually fixing each and every resource, Botmetric allows you to select multiple resources and fix them all at once.
In an effort to allow our users to easily secure their cloud, we have recently added ‘click to fix’ feature for all Botmetric security group audits.
Why Botmetric Built Click to Fix for AWS Security Group Audits?
Security groups in AWS provide an efficient way to assign access to resources on your network. The rules that you define in security groups should be scrutinized. For a simple reason that you could end up giving a wide open access resulting in an increased risk of security breaches. The security group audits provided by Botmetric discover issues, such as as security groups having rules with TCP/UDP ports open to public, servers open to public, port ranges open to public, so on and so forth. These are serious security loopholes that could leave your cloud open to malicious attacks.
Botmetric ‘click to fix’ feature for AWS security group audits deletes the vulnerable security group rule, thereby securing access to your cloud resources and protecting your cloud infrastructure.
List of AWS Security Group Audits provided by Botmetric
- Database Ports : Protecting database ports is crucial as you wouldn’t want access leaks or open ports to your Database ports. Botmetric scans your database ports open to public, IP and private subnet. Securing these would ensure your database ports safety in a security group.
- Server Ports : Very essential as a lot of security issues and vulnerabilities have been caused due to server ports. Botmetric secures ports open to public, IP and private subnet.
- TCP UDP and ICMP Ports : Relies everything we do on the internet, here Botmetric secures open ports to both public and IP.
There are few more controls for Security Group such as All Traffic and Port Range also secured by the audits.
How to Enable Click to Fix for AWS Security Group Audits?
