Cloud compliance software is used to ensure regulatory standards and provide compliance controls for networks and cloud infrastructure. These tools help improve visibility over cloud workloads and network flows. These workloads require continuous compliance for protection against server malware, container threats, and network intrusion. Companies use cloud compliance software to ensure continuous visibility over their cloud assets and reduce the risk of cloud-based threats. Properly implemented cloud compliance software will ensure a business’ security posture remains optimal at all times.
There is overlap regarding functionality between cloud compliance solutions and cloud workload protection platforms in their goal of protecting cloud infrastructure. But many cloud workload protection platforms will not provide the same level of continuous monitoring and compliance auditing capabilities.
