Misconfiguration Management

Quickly detect and proactively manage security misconfigurations with SpinSPM

Misconfiguration Management

Security misconfigurations are widely regarded as the top cloud threat – stemming most commonly from simple human error, default settings left unchanged, erroneous configuration changes, or even new applications added without proper risk assessment.

Just one misconfiguration can open the door to unauthorized access – leaving your SaaS data in environments like Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, and Slack vulnerable to potential security and compliance risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a security misconfiguration?

A security misconfiguration occurs when system or application configuration settings are missing or are erroneously implemented, allowing unauthorized access. Common security misconfigurations can occur as a result of leaving default settings unchanged, erroneous configuration changes or other technical issues.

Why is managing misconfigurations important?

SSPM helps correct SaaS misconfigurations
One of the risks associated with using cloud SaaS applications is not always due to an inherent security vulnerability in the cloud SaaS application itself, but rather the organizations’ misconfiguration of the cloud SaaS application. Most cloud applications have best practice recommendations and settings for keeping business-critical data secure. Manually configuring proper security settings on potentially hundreds of different SaaS applications is a losing battle for enterprise organizations with IT operations and security teams stretched thin. SSPM solutions use effective automation powered by technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to effectively and intelligently carry out routine and important security configuration tasks.

What steps can I take to reduce the chances of security misconfigurations?

To effectively mitigate extension and SaaS app risks like misconfigurations, businesses must adopt a comprehensive approach to manage the entire risk lifecycle. It involves effectively discovering all extensions and SaaS applications connected to the environment and which can access which data. It also involves proactive, continuous risk assessments of all connected extensions and SaaS apps. Finally, as risk may change over time, organizations must leverage automated risk assessments and modern cybersecurity tools to eliminate the threat.
