Symantec Cloud Workload Assurance (CWA) is a cloud-native infrastructure security service that delivers cloud security posture management (CSPM) capabilities to protect organizations from cloud misconfigurations in AWS. It gives customers visibility and control of their cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) management plane to ensure compliance and eliminate security vulnerabilities.
The Symantec account monitors the respective clod service provider accounts in the customer environment.
The assessment service is made up of the following:
Assets which are the accounts and services of various service providers.
Policies which you use to scan the resources.
Scan profiles which perform the actual scans.
The result service consists of result views, dashboards, reports, and the events that generate alerts and notifications.
The Cloud Platform Integration Framework (CPIF) service communicates with the respective cloud services in the customer environment. The scans fetch the service configuration data from the control plane layer of the resources of the cloud service provider. The data is fetched through APIs assuming the CWA Service Role. The data is processed, and dashboards are generated.
