Infrastructure As Code Scanning

Book a demo

Securing the Backbone of Modern Infrastructure

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has become a cornerstone of modern software development, enabling organizations to manage their infrastructure in a more consistent, repeatable, and automated manner. With the increasing adoption of IaC tools like Terraform and CloudFormation, securing these configurations is crucial to prevent vulnerabilities and maintain compliance. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 70% of organizations will implement structured automation, highlighting the growing importance of IaC in achieving operational efficiency and flexibility.

Identify and Mitigate Security Risks Early

As IaC becomes more prevalent, the need to scan infrastructure code for security issues and misconfigurations is critical. The Meterian IaC Scanner is designed to identify vulnerabilities within your IaC templates, ensuring that security issues are addressed early in the development process. This proactive approach minimizes the risk of security breaches and ensures that your infrastructure configurations meet industry compliance standards. By catching problems before deployment, you can maintain a secure and reliable cloud environment.

The Meterian IaC Scanner integrates effortlessly with any CI/CD pipeline, supporting a wide range of programming languages and repositories. This seamless integration automates security checks as part of the deployment process, ensuring that every change to the infrastructure undergoes thorough security validation. This not only reduces the manual effort required for security audits but also increases overall efficiency and security hygiene.

Wide Range of Tools and Platforms Supported

The Meterian IaC Scanner supports a wide range of tools and platforms, including popular IaC languages such as ARM templates, CloudFormation, Kubernetes/Helm, Terraform, and Serverless, with plans to support Chef, Puppet, Ansible and Docker. This extensive compatibility ensures that your infrastructure code, regardless of the platform or language, is thoroughly scanned and secured.

High-Precision Scanning and Comprehensive Reporting

The Meterian IaC Scanner offers high-precision scanning with minimal false positives, detecting a wide range of policy violations, including security issues, compliance gaps, and best practice deviations, supported by a curated set of over a thousand policies. The tool also identifies sensitive information in code, such as credentials and authorization tokens, ensuring comprehensive protection.

The comprehensive reports generated by the Meterian IaC Scanner provide clear, actionable insights and are available in multiple formats. Integrated with the Meterian dashboard, the reporting functionality offers transparency and ease of use, helping your team efficiently address policy violations and maintain a secure, compliant infrastructure codebase.

Proactive Risk Management

By scanning your IaC templates for vulnerabilities early in the development process, the Meterian IaC Scanner helps prevent security incidents before they can occur. This proactive approach reduces the risk of data breaches, system downtime, and associated costs such as reputational damage and regulatory penalties. Regular scanning as part of your CI/CD pipeline ensures ongoing security hygiene and resilience against evolving threats.
