Continuous Terraform security and compliance
Enforce security and compliance policies in your Terraform modules to prevent misconfigured cloud resources from being deployed.
Terraform security 101
Infrastructure as code (IaC) frameworks like Terraform make it easy to scale infrastructure quickly and consistently across providers and cloud environments. It also poses new risks as additional layers of configuration are introduced, as well as opportunities to shift cloud security left. In order to prevent Terraform misconfigurations, your Terraform cloud modules need increased security scanning.
Security configuration is one of the major concerns of Terraform security. This is because misconfigurations can expose your runtime environment to different security risks if not addressed. Prevention of misconfigurations should be at the forefront of Terraform development.
Terraform security risks
Because Terraform modules are built with functionality and performance in mind, security is often overlooked. Having missing or misconfigured variables in IaC modules, you may be inadvertently deploying vulnerable cloud resources. In order to prevent misconfiguration, additional Terraform security scanning is crucial.
Codified security opportunity
Terraform enables you to embed cloud security earlier and leverage automation and code to secure it. By scanning your Terraform modules earlier in the development lifecycle you can actually prevent misconfigurations from being deployed.
