PRODUCT REVIEW: TrueSight Cloud Security by BMC Software


Today, we are reviewing TrueSight Cloud Security from BMC Software. TrueSight Cloud Security is a SaaS based cloud security and compliance solution with automated scanning and remediation which manages cloud resource configurations consistently, securely, and with an audit trail. The platform also secures containers and container orchestration at the cluster, host, daemon, image, and container level.

Cloud security is a struggle for most enterprises: app complexity and velocity of change, across multiple cloud platforms, hundreds if not thousands of accounts, consuming innumerable resources. Managing this complexity and scope is well beyond human scale.
Cloud resources must be configured appropriately if they are to be secure. Customers need a means of visualizing their entire multicloud security posture automatically, from a single tool, not dozens. They need a built-in means of remediating security gaps automatically once they are found. TrueSight Cloud Security automates security checks *and remediation* of cloud resource configurations, so that they are consistently, securely configured across the organization’s entire cloud estate.

Key Capabilities

TrueSight Cloud Security delivers on all these fronts by automating policy-based cloud configuration security of the IaaS and PaaS resources and containers. Automated compliance checks and remediation for nearly any cloud asset further eliminates the manpower bottleneck so customers can make security agile.

Some of the key capabilities of the BMC cloud security platform include:

  1. Automated Cloud Security Posture Management. Designed for the cloud, in the cloud, to provide consistent, secure configuration of cloud-native PaaS and IaaS resources across cloud platforms, accounts, and apps.
  2. Full-Stack Container Security. From the Kubernetes cluster down to the Docker container, organizations can secure the entire container stack of their microservices.
  3. Enterprise Capabilities. Organizations can intelligently prioritize their security backlog. Manage exceptions, alert notifications, and reports. Integrate to change and incident management systems.
  4. Rapid Value Realization. Extensive library of out-of-the-box policies and remediation simplifies getting started. Organizations can quickly create any custom compliance or governance policies within the solution. Because it is SaaS, there is nothing to install. Users can simply subscribe and connect, and you can begin plugging cloud security gaps right away.

In a nutshell, the solution delivers three compelling benefits to organizations: (1) total visibility of their multi-cloud security posture with automated security checks, (2) diminished risk of cloud security failure with automated remediation, and (3) increased productivity of IT ops staff through automation of previously manual tasks.
