AppOmni and Wiz Enable Unprecedented Cloud and SaaS Security Control

By Eric Snyder, VP of Global Alliances, AppOmni

What if you could see into your cloud infrastructure and SaaS environment, and eliminate misconfigurations and prevent data leakage altogether? This is now possible with AppOmni, the pioneer behind SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) and our joint integration with Wiz, the leading Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solution.

This integration heralds a new era in enterprise cloud cybersecurity, offering seamless security oversight into misconfiguration risks across cloud infrastructures and SaaS estates.

Misconfiguration risks remain one of the leading threat vectors resulting in breaches. “Nearly all successful attacks on cloud services are the result of customer misconfiguration, mismanagement and mistakes,” according to Gartner Research.

Together with the power of SSPM and CSPM, organizations can gain unmatched visibility into their entire cloud and SaaS footprint. With AppOmni and Wiz, gain unmatched visibility and context to identify misconfigurations, critical data leakage gaps, and publicly exposed data records in both cloud and SaaS environments. Customers can also enforce the principle of least privilege (PoLP) to reduce their risks.

What’s even more exciting are the efficiency gains for Dev teams by simply addressing security issues early during development. What used to take months can be achieved faster by integrating AppOmni and Wiz in your development workflows to detect vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they further escalate.

SSPM and CSPM’s Joint Capabilities

Let’s level set what SSPM and CSPM solutions bring to the table.

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solutions, like Wiz, can monitor the security and compliance posture of standard and custom cloud applications deployed into public cloud environments. They provide compliance monitoring, a single policy for DevOps and security teams, and dynamic cloud integration functionality.

Wiz’s agentless, cloud agnostic platform protects cloud infrastructure and all the data stored in a user’s cloud environment, ensuring the cloud infrastructure is successfully configured and secured. Wiz provides complete visibility and context for a cloud infrastructure so security teams can proactively identify, prioritize, remediate, and prevent risks to organizations.

For organizations with data stored solely in the cloud environment, Wiz’s cyber risk observability, assessment, and remediation value is indisputable.

But what about your data stored everywhere else? And all the configurations within the dozens — if not hundreds — of SaaS tools your organization relies on every day? Securing SaaS data requires a solution dedicated to protecting it, just as cloud environments require a solution dedicated to cloud security. 

That’s where SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) comes in.

SSPM solutions like ours are focused on an organization’s SaaS stack and data. AppOmni’s comprehensive SaaS security platform helps security and IT teams manage misconfigurations, explore open policy issues, detect threat-based activities, and monitor compliance across their entire SaaS estate and SaaS-to-SaaS connections.

According to the Forrester Landscape Report, “organizations can use SSPM offerings to analyze data and access logs to decrease the security threat surface, lower the cost of software-as-a-service (SaaS) app security management by automation, and achieve and maintain regulatory compliance in SaaS apps.”

Work With the Tools You Love

AppOmni and Wiz’s partnership unlocks unprecedented and seamless cyber risk visibility and context across your cloud infrastructure and SaaS estate. Combining these industry-leading and pioneering solutions enable a greater level of security for cloud and SaaS environments, identify cyber risks across the cloud plane, and enable proactive remediation — preventing risks from becoming costly data breaches or incidents.

Additionally, AppOmni allows security practitioners to ensure the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) controls and user permissions in Wiz align to their security policies and business intent on a continuous basis. Our solution also monitors Wiz for Users, Role, Role Permissions, and Project assignments from a security posture perspective.
