With the help of CloudCheckr, CleanSlate ran a security assessment on a financial services company and focused on analyzing and assessing the following areas: Cloud Architecture, Security & Compliance, DevOps, Monitoring & Operations, and Backup & Recovery. Through this assessment CleanSlate’s team was able to identify:
- 41 critical issues
- 29 high level issues
- 39 medium issues
- 22 low level issues
- 5 unidentifiable issues that required further analysis
CleanSlate found 136 cloud security issues. These are common issues that can significantly impact the function of a company’s cloud as a whole and leave it susceptible to a wide variety of security issues and/or attacks. Through a remediation process, CleanSlate was able to immediately erase the 41 critical issues that exist. The team then set up a 6-month plan to erase the remaining errors in the cloud, setting the company up for effective cloud structure and security for years to come. CleanSlate Technology Group is able to effectively assess cloud security thanks to its partnership with CloudCheckr.
