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 AWS account monitors the AWS accounts in the customer environment by providing cross-account access using IAM roles.
The assessment service is made up of the following:
Assets which are the AWS services and resources.
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 Symantec AWS services in the customer environment. The scans fetch the service configuration data from the control plane layer of the AWS resources. The data is fetched through APIs assuming the CWA Service Role. The data is processed, and dashboards are generated.
