Continuous Terraform security and compliance

Infrastructure as code (IaC) frameworks like Terraform make it easy to scale infrastructure quickly and consistently across providers and cloud environments. Terraform adds another layer of abstraction to building and managing cloud resources, and without the right approach, can actually end up introducing new risks.

Bridgecrew makes it easy to enforce cloud security and compliance policies in Terraform with continuous code scanning to prevent misconfigured cloud resources from being deployed.

Our approach

Terraform security 101

Because it introduces additional layers of configuration and abstraction to provisioning cloud resources, Terraform presents new risks, as well as opportunities to automate and codify cloud security.

Terraform security risks

Oftentimes, Terraform modules are built with functionality and performance in mind, and security gets left behind. If misconfigured Terraform modules are applied, misconfigurations can make their way to the cloud, introducing risk. In order to prevent misconfigurations, a proactive approach to cloud security is crucial.

Codified security opportunity

For all its risks, Terraform also presents a unique opportunity to make cloud security more proactive. By embedding cloud security feedback and guardrails earlier in the development lifecycle through continuous and automated scanning, you can actually prevent misconfigurations from being deployed.
