Cloud IaaS providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), provide scores of services, each with hundreds of potential security configurations. The "shared security model" of the cloud means that, while the providers secure the physical infrastructure and provide the means to deploy secure services, it is up to the end-user to do so properly. 

As the usage of these services grows and the number of engineers active within the account increases, it becomes nearly impossible to maintain security best practices. Aqua's CSPM helps you maintain the integrity of your account by continually auditing for these best practices and monitoring for potential activity that indicates a compromised account.
