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.
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.
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.
Bridgecrew is designed to enforce cloud security policies as early as possible and as part of every Terraform code review.
- Integrate directly with your Terraform repositories to instantly start scanning for security issues.
- Keep your Terraform modules compliant with continuous scanning as part of your CI/CD pipelines.
- Fix issues with a single click by opening a pull request that includes the code to address policies
