What is Misconfiguration?

Misconfiguration in Cloud Apps is caused when organizations are setting up their assets incorrectly, fail to provide adequate security for their cloud data and open the door for attackers. According to Gartner, “through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” Misconfigurations are the main reason for this.

Why prevent misconfiguration?

A misconfiguration can leave sensitive information fully exposed, such as a Financial Report that’s accidentally setup to be publicly accessible on the internet, which can lead to a serious breach. And since misconfigurations don't exist within a computer’s operating system or an application’s source code, they’re less visible to traditional security testing tools, which means they often go undetected (to the delight of attackers).
