Our approach to Visibility, Compliance and Governance

Cloud asset inventory

Maintaining a current inventory of deployed resources requires continuous discovery and automatic classification as soon as new resources are deployed. Prisma Cloud also maintains a history of configuration changes, enabling users to understand exactly when a new security issue was introduced and by whom, to simplify cloud forensics and auditing.

  • A single dashboard for all your cloud assets

    Continuously track resources across multiple clouds and surface their risk posture in a single view for comprehensive security.

  • Support for the world’s five largest clouds

    Enjoy comprehensive security for all your assets, with support for AWS®, Azure®, Google Cloud, Alibaba Cloud and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

  • Broad coverage for more visibility

    As cloud providers continuously roll out new services, traditional CSPM tools may take several months before extending coverage to those services. Prisma Cloud rolls out new software updates daily, meaning new services could be supported in days, not months.

  • Detailed resource classification

    Use API metadata to automatically determine the resource types that compose every environment, workload and application. Understanding the types of resources deployed is a key element to determining security posture.

  • Real-time and historical views into risk

    Track the risk posture of assets in real time and gain detailed historical context from fine-grained audit trail analysis.

Configuration management

Ensuring newly deployed resources are securely configured and preventing configuration drift require policy guardrails. Prisma Cloud ships with more than 1,500 policies aligned to compliance frameworks and industry best practices.

  • Immediately enforce security guardrails

    Ensure a strong cloud security posture from day one without having to build hundreds of policies from scratch. Leverage the rich policy library built into Prisma Cloud.

  • Prevent configuration drift

    Continuously enforce security policies and ensure resources perpetually align to guardrails. When resources can be created and destroyed in minutes, it's important to ensure security policies stay relevant.

  • Augment your security with custom policies

    Adjust Prisma Cloud policies to meet your specific requirements or add custom policies to bolster prebuilt policies for more complete coverage.

Easy-to-Use Query Language

Gain security and operational insights about your deployments in public cloud environments. Perform configuration checks on resources and query network events across different cloud platforms. Turn queries into custom cloud-agnostic policies and define remediation steps as well as compliance implications.

  • Immediately gain insights

    Perform configuration checks on resources deployed on different cloud platforms and gain unmatched visibility and insights into user and network events.

  • Ask nearly any question

    Search for the configuration of cloud resources, audit all the console and API access events in your cloud environment or search real-time network events in your environment.

  • Craft cloud-agnostic policies

    Turn any RQL query into a cloud-agnostic policy with a single click. Map compliance frameworks or remediation steps for each policy for a seamless experience across multicloud environments.

Compliance Monitoring and Reporting

Prisma Cloud supports more than 20 compliance standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, SOC 2, NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53, NIST CSF, ISO 27002, CCPA, CCM and any custom framework. Generate audit-ready reports with a single click.

  • Continuous compliance monitoring

    Take advantage of out-of-the-box support for more than 75 compliance frameworks and a rich interactive dashboard, enabling even the most resource-constrained security teams to easily manage and enforce compliance across multicloud environments.

  • One-click audit reporting

    Generate audit-ready reports against any compliance standard with one click. Granular details identify the specific violating resources and provide the necessary guidance to correct specific compliance issues.

  • Real-time and historical data at your fingertips

    Surface compliance data in real time and with historical context to give your teams the data they need for audits and reporting.
