Gartner: Cloud Security Monitoring for IaaS, PaaS, SaaS

0
0

My journey deep into cloud security monitoring continues, with a brief detour into “faith-based monitoring” (as in “we believe our cloud provider takes care of monitoring“).In any case, let’s try to review what types of data we can leverage for security monitoring of resources deployed in each of the cloud service provider (CSP) types: SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.

Cloud modelSecurity monitoring data
IaaS· Logs: OS, database, applications, etc

· Network monitoring: local host traffic only, no promiscuous sniffing

· Host / endpoint activity: HIPS logs, antimalware logs, other agent, etc

· (if lucky and your CSP likes you) Some data from lower layers of the infrastructure such as hypervisor logs, change logs, etc

· (if all access to cloud is through such) Proxy/gateway data

PaaS· Logs: applications (if written by you – then as long as you engineered and enabled logging)

· Some logs from lower layers of the infrastructure such as select platform logs, error logs, etc

· (if all access to cloud is through such) Proxy/gateway data

SaaS· (if CSP provides this) Application logs such as access (often), changes (sometimes), etc

· (if all access to cloud is through such) Proxy/gateway data

· (if applicable) Client-side or browser based monitoring data
