Your stepping stone into the Confidential Cloud
Leveraging confidential compute, Nitride ensures only attested workloads can access specific resources and data within a cloud infrastructure.
Using cloud services exposes organizations to various security, privacy risks, and compliance risks. Cloud computing leaks any workload and opens the gateway to bad actors, cyber attacks and industrial espionage. BYOK, data-at-rest or in-transit encryption do not protect from leaking sensitive data while in use by workload.
Workload Residency. Organizations need to adhere to data residency requirements, ensuring that data stays within specific geographical boundaries. Relying on the cloud provider’s security measures may not be sufficient to meet these regulatory demands.
Loss of control. Organizations have limited visibility into how their data is processed and who accesses it within the cloud environment. This lack of transparency can make it difficult to detect and respond to security incidents.
Limited visibility. Organizations have limited visibility into how their data is processed and who accesses it within the cloud environment. This lack of transparency can make it difficult to detect and respond to security incidents.
Workload Governance. Organizations may struggle to enforce their own data governance policies, data retention schedules, and compliance requirements when relying solely on the cloud provider’s measures. This can result in non-compliance with industry regulations and internal policies.
Zero-Trust. When data is processed, it is reliant on the cloud provider’s access controls. This dependence can be risky, as breaches or misconfigurations within the provider’s infrastructure lead to unauthorized access.
Cloud Service Provider Vulnerabilities. While cloud service providers implement robust security measures, vulnerabilities can still exist in their infrastructure. In fact cloud IAM services are appealing targets to attack. A single exploit can grant immediate access to millions of accounts.
Identify workloads in your perimeters. Leveraging confidential compute, workloads have a unique identity. Facilitate the automatic assignment and rotation of identities for workloads and provide a consistent identity management approach in multi-cloud environments.
Implement strong access control and access management policies to ensure that only authorized users and most notably attested workloads can access data, processes and services.
Protocol the hardware and software supply chain, including firmware, program code, repositories, and packages. Validate supply chains and implement automated mechanisms for monitoring the trustworthiness of workloads.
Run workload in confidential environments in the private, hybrid or multi-cloud. Verify the confidentiality and enforce fine-grained privileges for organizations, groups, users and other confidential and non-confidential services to access the workload.
By harnessing the power of confidential computing, transition your IT infrastructure into the cloud environment securely. Only authorized workloads, applications, and services have access to specific resources, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access, data breaches, and insider threats.
Specific regulations regarding data processing and storage, such as GDPR, HIPAA, NIS2 can be complex. Decrease the complexities for reporting and auditing, with workload identification in conjunction with hardware-graded boot measurement.
Automation of access control processes streamlines resource provisioning and de-provisioning. It ensures that workloads have the appropriate permissions and that access rights are updated dynamically in response to changing needs.
Limiting access to resources reduces the attack surface, making it harder for malicious actors and third parties to exploit vulnerabilities or launch cyberattacks. Your workload runs in hardware-graded isolated enclaves, has a unique cryptographic identity, and policies enforce finer-grained access based on workload identities.
Manage and secure identities used by workloads, applications, and services in the cloud. As your cloud environment grows, Nitride scales with it, providing a consistent and secure workload identity management solution.
Grant the minimum set of permissions necessary for a workload and users to perform tasks, following the principle of least privilege. Enable fine-grained control over the permissions assigned to workloads, allowing you to specify which resources and actions a workload can access. Reduce the attack surface and minimize the potential impact of security breaches.
Ensure that the cloud infrastructure and services meet the necessary security and regulatory standards. Streamline the process of documenting and demonstrating adherence to regulatory requirements, industry standards, and internal policies within a cloud computing environment. Gather regulatory compliance, data governance, access control data and logging with a single click. Automate compliance reporting and incidence repsonse management.
Integrate with database systems that once data is written, it cannot be changed or deleted. Facilitate better auditability and traceability of data changes. Each version of the data is preserved, allowing for a clear and complete history of modifications. This can be valuable for compliance, auditing, and forensic analysis.
