Enhance Your Cloud Security Posture

Cloud Security Posture Management by Ascend Technologies


Get continuous cloud assessment for risk and automated enforcement of an organization’s hardened security policies and configurations to reduce risk proactively. Using Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), we incorporate global threat intelligence, active threats, and your organization’s current threat landscape to adaptively adjust “trust”— access, privileges, and controls within your cloud environments.

The breakthrough of Ascend’s CSPM solution is its ability to surgically adapt individual or group access and privileges based on their behaviors and the severity of a threat, maintaining productivity and workflows while protecting your cloud environments. ​

Security Risks in the Cloud


Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) automates security management across the following diverse infrastructure:

  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Risk Protection: Get comprehensive assessments and real-time configuration management. Our Security Operations Center (SOC) team tracks your security posture in real-time and ensures the proper configuration of your cloud applications such as Office 365.
  • Platform-as-a-Service Risk Protection: Ascend integrates with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure to monitor and detect threats against application framework. Using a customized risk management plan, we automatically assess those assets and provide reports or notifications, and coordinate assessment activities according to your organization’s unique needs. We provide risk discovery services to measure a container’s security against custom or Center for Internet Security (CIS) policy definitions.
  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Risk Protection: Visibility into cloud workloads is critical to ensuring the security of your cloud environment. Using a customized risk management plan, we automatically assess system configuration against CIS benchmark standards via API and Ascend’s CSPM agent.


After moving to the cloud, many organizations mistakenly assume their cloud hosting provider is entirely responsible for security. This mistaken belief leads to data breaches and other security mishaps.  Through 2025, Gartner predicts that 99% of security failures in a cloud environment will be the public cloud customer’s fault.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cloud Security Posture Management?

CSPM is a process of identification and remediation security risks across hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments. It covers services like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). CSPM enhances your organization’s cloud security stance by pinpointing potential threats, adherence discrepancies, and potential misconfigurations within your cloud ecosystem.

Why should organizations adopt Cloud Security Posture Management?

Organizations are increasingly adopting multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments for flexibility, scalability, and digital transformation. However, these environments also bring security challenges. CSPM helps address these challenges by continuously monitoring cloud assets, identifying vulnerabilities, and quick remediation.

How does Cloud Security Posture Management work alongside other security tools?

CSPM solutions integrate with other security tools (such as SIEM, IDS/IPS, and vulnerability scanners) to provide a holistic view of an organization’s security posture. They share data, correlate events, and trigger alerts based on policy violations. Integration enhances threat detection and incident response capabilities.

Does Cloud Security Posture Management help with compliance?

CSPM tools assess cloud configurations against industry standards and regulatory frameworks (such as NIST, CIS, and GDPR). They identify deviations from these benchmarks and provide recommendations for remediation. Compliance monitoring ensures that cloud resources adhere to security policies and legal requirements.

What types of misconfigurations does Cloud Security Posture Management detect?

With CSPM we can detect a wide range of misconfigurations, such as inadequate access controls, unencrypted storage buckets, exposed APIs without proper authentication, unused or forgotten resources, and non-compliant network configurations. These misconfigurations can lead to security breaches if left unaddressed.
