Cloud Configuration Reviews


Constant evolution in the digital transformation journey of small and large-scale organizations, and an inevitable transfer of business functions to cloud ecosystems, call for strict security measures to enhance an organization’s overall security posture. The sooner your cloud platform’s configuration issues are fixed, the sooner your business becomes less vulnerable to exploits launched by adversaries. With the rapid evolution of cloud-based environments, security challenges are growing in complexity daily. This leaves organizations vulnerable to security threats, which can eventually negate the advantages of cloud platforms.

What is a Cloud Configuration Review?

A cloud configuration review is a comprehensive evaluation of the security settings, configurations, and practices within your cloud environment. It aims to identify misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and deviations from cloud security best practices that could expose your organization to potential risks and threats.

During a cloud configuration review, our experienced team of pen testers examines the security controls and configurations of your cloud infrastructure, including cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP). We assess areas such as identity and access management, network security, encryption, data protection, logging and monitoring, and compliance adherence. By conducting a thorough review, we can provide you with actionable recommendations to strengthen the security of your cloud-based assets.

The review involves finding configuration issues in the following areas:

  1. Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  2. Networking
  3. Storage
  4. Compute
  5. Other Services

These assessments are created using manual and automated methodologies that consider industry best practices and security standards from trusted sources (such as the CIS Benchmarks).

How do we carry out a Cloud Config Review?

At Redfox Security, we offer organizations a comprehensive security assessment of their cloud environments. This includes assessing your cloud configuration settings against industry best practices to keep your organization safe from cloud-based cyber-attacks.

We regularly review and update our methodologies to ensure they align with the latest compliance and regulatory standards many businesses must meet when implementing cloud services. Our cloud security config reviews include (but not limited to) the following:


We work closely with you to define the scope of the review, considering your specific cloud platform, deployment models, and compliance requirements. This ensures that our assessment aligns with your objectives.

Cloud Infrastructure Assessment

Our team examines the configuration settings and security controls of your cloud infrastructure, including virtual machines, storage, databases, and networking components. We assess adherence to security best practices, identify misconfigurations, and recommend improvements.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) Analysis

We evaluate the effectiveness of your IAM controls, such as user roles, permissions, and authentication mechanisms. This assessment helps ensure that access to your cloud resources is properly managed and that the principle of least privilege is enforced.

Data Protection and Encryption

We review your data protection and encryption mechanisms, including encryption at rest and in transit, key management practices, and data backup and recovery procedures. This helps ensure that your sensitive data remains protected from unauthorized access.

Logging and Monitoring

We assess the logging and monitoring capabilities of your cloud environment, including audit logs, event management, and threat detection. We identify any gaps or weaknesses in your monitoring practices and recommend improvements to enhance incident detection and response.

Reporting and Recommendations

We provide a comprehensive report summarizing the findings of the review, including identified misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and actionable recommendations for remediation. Our team is available to guide you through the implementation of security measures and best practices to enhance the security of your cloud environment.
