Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) concentrates on security assessment and compliance monitoring for workloads in public cloud environments. It can be used to provide a unified view across disparate cloud environments.

The current view, driven by analysts at Gartner, encompasses tools and practices used for DevOps and DevSecOps integrations, incident response, compliance assessment, operational monitoring, risk identification and risk visualization.

There is a gradual convergence in capabilities between CSPM, CWPP, and CASB solutions.
