Zscaler Infrastructure as Code Security

Simplify and secure infrastructure as code (IaC) across public cloud environments

IaC boosts efficiency—and risk

Infrastructure as code lets developers simply write code to deploy infrastructure. As an efficiency tool, it’s hard to beat. But while devs are experts at building applications, their experience varies when it comes to provisioning, testing, and securing IaC. As a result, as your IaC usage grows, so does the likelihood of misconfiguration and other mistakes, which can quickly propagate across your entire cloud infrastructure.
 

IaC boosts efficiency, but it also amplifies mistakes. Your Security and DevOps teams’ biggest challenge is proactively identifying and remediating security issues early in the development life cycle.

Risk of Misconfiguration

Modern apps need frequent updates, forcing you to reconfigure infrastructure repeatedly, increasing the risk of mistakes and config drift.

Data exposure

IaC templates with vulnerabilities and insecure default configurations can lead to sensitive data exposure.

Operational complexity

Manual processes, infrequent scans, and siloed tools can’t keep up with rapid development and continuous release cycles.

“By 2023, 60% of organizations will use infrastructure automation tools as part of their DevOps toolchains, improving application deployment efficiency by 25%.”

— Gartner

WHAT WE DO

Proactively secure your IaC

Seamlessly integrate cloud security best practices into development workflows and tools to prevent violations and insecure configurations—and realize the full power of IaC—with Posture Control™.

Posture Control helps you proactively secure IaC with an integrated, cloud-native platform that embeds security best practices in developer environments, integration tools, and source code repositories. Using predefined policies to identify and prioritize high-risk misconfigurations, code leaks, environmental drift, and more, you’ll keep continuous IaC governance under control with ease.
 

Rich context and guided remediation provide direct feedback in popular DevOps tools and workflows, including integrated development environments (IDEs), continuous integration (CI) tools, and version control systems (VCS). Posture Control improves overall cloud security posture while reducing the burden on security and operations teams as well as mitigating cross-team friction.
