Fugue Releases Best Practices Framework
November 07, 2019

Fugue announced the release of the Fugue Best Practices Framework to help cloud engineering and security teams identify and remediate dangerous cloud resource misconfigurations that aren’t addressed by common compliance frameworks.

Users can deploy the Fugue Best Practices Framework within minutes to improve the security posture of their Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud environments.

The Fugue Best Practices Framework is designed to complement standards such as the CIS Foundations Benchmark to provide additional protection against today’s advanced misconfiguration attacks.

“Enterprise cloud and security teams are recognizing that their current cloud security posture leaves them vulnerable to newer and more sophisticated misconfiguration attacks,” said Phillip Merrick, CEO of Fugue. “The Fugue Best Practices Framework gives cloud teams a simple tool to quickly identify these misconfigurations in their cloud environment and the most comprehensive security against cloud misconfiguration risk when used in combination with a framework like the CIS Foundations Benchmark.”

The Fugue Best Practices Framework includes rules covering the following cloud vulnerabilities:

- Identity and Access Management (IAM) misconfigurations that can provide bad actors, including malicious insiders, with the ability to move laterally and discover resources to exploit

- S3 bucket policy misconfigurations that can be exploited in order to take data exfiltration actions

- VPC Security Group rule misconfigurations that can enable malicious access via Elasticsearch, etcd, and MongoDB services

Fugue will continue to add new rules to the Fugue Best Practices Framework as new misconfiguration attack vectors are identified.

The Fugue Best Practices Framework joins a growing number of out-of-the-box cloud compliance frameworks Fugue provides, including CIS Foundations Benchmarks, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO 27001, NIST 800-53, PCI, and SOC 2. Fugue also supports custom rules using Open Policy Agent, an open source policy as code engine, making it easy for enterprise cloud teams to create cloud infrastructure policies tailored to meet their specific use cases and security requirements.

The Fugue Best Practices Framework is available now for all Fugue customers.
