Find and fix misconfigured encryption in realtime.

Encryption guardrails ensure that your organization's data is protected from the moment new resources are created. Our event-driven architecture scales to millions of cloud resources and addresses encryption misconfiguration in realtime.

Here are some ways that Guardrails can monitor and enforce encryption.

Identify when data is unencrypted

Continuously monitor your cloud environment and trigger alerts when resources are created without the necessary encryption configurations.

Configure encryption at rest

Automatically stop or remove an unencrypted or misconfigured resource, or apply a service-managed or customer-managed key.

Rotate encryption keys

Automate the rotation of encryption keys to minimize the risk of unauthorized access. Guardrails can be configured to rotate keys at a frequency that aligns with your organization's security policies.

Ensure trusted access to encryption keys

Implement strict access controls to ensure that only authorized personnel and applications have access to your encryption keys.Guardrails enables you to configure and enforce IAM policies, roles, and permissions, so that only trusted entities can access, manage, and use your encryption keys.

Enable encryption in transit

Protect your traffic during transmission by enforcing a policy that encryption in transit is enabled at all times.

Set minimum TLS version

Establish a minimum TLS version for all encrypted connections to protect against known vulnerabilities and reduce the risk of data breaches due to outdated or insecure encryption protocols.

Apply which cipher suites are allowed

Define and enforce allowed SSL protocols, options, and ciphers to ensure that encryption methods are secure and up-to-date. Turbot Guardrails makes it easy to configure the accepted SSL protocols and ciphers, so your organization's encryption standards align with industry best practices and compliance requirements.

Make exceptions to the rule

Guardrails' robust hierarchical exception model makes it easy to set global rules and then — without complex coding — create exceptions for specific accounts, regions, or resources.
