Automated remediation of cloud misconfigurations was a big theme in 2018, and here at DivvyCloud we expect the trend to continue through 2019. One of the significant challenges customers face is putting automation into action, instead of just talking about it.

When enterprises evaluate Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solutions, automated remediation is frequently the end goal. As with any enterprise system, it is critical to learn, plan, and prototype your automation capabilities until the power is fully understood. Our challenge is to help those clients who are starting from a blank slate to take a “crawl, walk, run” approach.  Running aggressive automated remediation from day 1 risks causing more issues than you’re solving. As a result, your team will most likely be averse to future automated remediation efforts. A poor initial implementation of remediation introduces a risk of organizational opposition to automation going forward.
