Quick Summary:

Prancer is a cloud security validation framework. When big business enterprises want to implement a common policy over the resources of three different public cloud providers - GCP, AWS, and Azure. Checking for several resources which are in hundreds needs automation. Prancer is a business enterprise web application for connecting your cloud profiles and running validation of compliance and security. Prancer also remediates the identified issues with resources.

Understanding the Client's Challenges

Enhancing cloud security for vigilant data protection and compliance adherence.

  • Protecting Sensitive Data: Cloud security is essential due to the sensitive data stored in cloud environments, including customer information and intellectual property, requiring protection against unauthorized access and data breaches.
  • Ensuring Compliance: Additionally, compliance requirements such as GDPR and HIPAA require robust security measures to ensure adherence to regulatory standards.
  • Streamlining Cloud Security Management: There is a pressing need for a comprehensive platform that empowers teams to monitor cloud security posture vigilantly and swiftly remediate identified issues.
  • Efficient Threat Resolution: This platform should streamline security management across diverse cloud environments, providing actionable insights and facilitating efficient resolution of security threats to safeguard sensitive data and uphold regulatory compliance standards.
  • Security Concerns: The use of deprecated technology and a lack of regular updates left the application vulnerable to security threats. This risk not only compromised the privacy and security of user data but also posed a significant risk to the platform's reputation and customer trust.
  • Limited Innovation and Flexibility: The monolithic architecture and outdated technology stack limited the platform's ability to innovate and adapt. This constraint hindered Blickers' ability to introduce new features, improve user experience, and stay competitive in the online spectacles selling market.

Utilized our Expertise to Address Business Challenges

Our proposed solution involves developing a framework to securely acquire user secrets for accessing various cloud platforms. Subsequently, we utilize APIs to systematically traverse cloud resources, capturing snapshots of these resources in JSON format. These snapshots are then subjected to predefined compliance checks, enabling the identification of vulnerabilities within the cloud infrastructure.

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM): 

  • To utilize Cloud CSPM capabilities, users are required to establish a connector for accessing cloud APIs.
  • Prancer initiates a crawler to systematically traverse all cloud resources, conducting comprehensive cloud compliance assessments and generating vulnerability reports.
  • Users can see identified vulnerabilities and initiate remediation actions leveraging Prancer's Auto Remediation feature.

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Scan: 

  • Users must setup a connector to integrate their Git repository containing IaC templates (e.g., Armof, CloudFormation, Terraform).
  • Prancer accesses the Git repository, analyzes the IaC templates for compliance, and produces vulnerability reports.
  • Identified vulnerabilities are visible to users, who can utilize Prancer's Autoremediation feature for resolution.

Penetration Testing: 

  • ​​​​​Users specify the target domain for conducting penetration testing.
  • Prancer executes the penetration testing procedure on the defined target and generates comprehensive reports detailing vulnerabilities.
  • Integration with third-party work management tools like Azure Board or Jira enables users to create tickets for identified vulnerabilities.

Remote Execution: 

  • For organizations hesitant to share confidential information, Prancer offers the option of utilizing the Prancer CLI enterprise edition.
  • With the Prancer CLI, users can perform Cloud CSPM, IaC Scans, and Penetration Testing from within their intranet, uploading findings securely to the Prancer Platform using APIs for monitoring.
