According to the security specialist Gartner SaaS Security Posture management is a continuous process of cloud security improvement and adaptation to reduce the likelihood of a successful attack. Today’s Cloud Security Posture Management tools have use cases within DevOps Integrations, compliance management, risk assessment, incident response, incident visualization etc.

SSPM continuously monitors enterprise SaaS app environments to identify weak loopholes between their stated security policy and the actual security posture.

What is Security Posture?

An enterprise’s security posture refers to the overall security status of your software and hardware assets, code repositories, SaaS application, data pipelines, networks, services, and information. The Overall Security status covers the following dimensions:

  • The security controls the organization has in place which protects the organization from internal or external cyberattacks.
  • The ability of the organization’s security teams to manage the security policies and optimize them.
  • The readiness of each part of the organization to detect cyberattacks, mitigate the incident, and then recover.
  • The readiness of each part of the organization to detect cyberattacks, mitigate the incident, and then recover.

With Saasment you can automatically find and fix security risks to prevent human error across your cloud assets.

What is SSPM?

SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) is a robotic set of security tools and automation that enables the organization’s Security and IT teams to get visibility and manage the security posture of their SaaS environments. While CSPM is looking at the security posture of the Public Cloud or IaaS environments like AWS; SSPM is diving into Services that the servers (or workloads) are not under the control of the organization like Salesforce and Slack.

Enables the organization’s Security and IT teams to get visibility and manage the security posture of their SaaS environments.

Following the shared responsibility model, the SaaS vendor should take care of protecting the Infrastructure, Hypervisor, Network Traffic, OSs, and apps, and the Customers should make sure they protect their data and user access. Saasment helps organizations to easily protect their data and access across SaaS apps.

Why SSPM?

Since the SaaS Perimeter is constantly changing, SSPM tools continuously monitor the organization’s SaaS apps and identify gaps between stated security controls and actual security posture across all applications. The SSPM is reducing dramatically the possibility of data leakage and minimizing the potential damage.

Some of the benefits of SSPM include:

  • Continuous visibility into multiple SaaS apps of policy violations.
  • Ability to perform automated remediation of misconfigurations.
  • Compliance with common standards including CIS, SOC 2, PCI, NIST 800-53, or HIPAA.

It's never been harder for IT experts to ensure basic resources inside the cloud. The present corporate businesses are huge, mind-boggling, and hard to oversee and manage. New cloud services and resources are coordinated with extraordinary recurrence, making the risk assessment more seriously demanding. Also, the developing commands of cloud security frequently fall outside the competency level of existing IT professionals.
