Introducing the Mondoo Compliance Hub

Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP)


Cloud-native applications demonstrate how modern technologies are effectively combined together to deliver innovation and value to customers. However, this approach requires a new generation of security tools, which look at distributed systems holistically and identify issues that matter. Mondoo was created from the ground up to tackle this space in a fully integrated approach with one system end to end.

Your CISO wants to eliminate the costs, gaps, and inconsistent reporting from your multiple cloud security tools. You need a CNAPP, a single solution that meets all your cloud security needs.

Your security toolbox is overflowing:
  • You rely on a cloud workload protection platform (CWPP) to assess the security of your VMs and containers.
  • A different utility scans your infrastructure-as-code (IaC) for known vulnerabilities.
  • Your Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) software finds misconfigurations and compliance issues in your cloud infrastructure.
  • Your Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Manager (CIEM) ensures that your cloud systems follow best practices for access management.
This combination of solutions overlaps in some areas and leaves gaps in others. Each one presents findings differently, forcing you to manually build your cloud security reporting out of the disparate data. And each of these tools is an expense in your budget.

Your CISO wants a CNAPP, a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) to replace this patchwork of tools.

Mondoo meets all your cloud infrastructure security and compliance needs in a single platform.

A unified solution for cloud infrastructure security, Mondoo integrates protections that, until now, required many siloed tools. It provides one centralized resource for hardening your cloud, and weaves security into the full development lifecycle.

Mondoo replaces disparate solutions for:
  • Infrastructure as code (IaC) scanning
  • Container scanning
  • Cloud workload protection (CWPP)
  • Cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM)
  • Cloud security posture management (CSPM)

Infrastructure as code (IaC) scanning

IaC scanning reviews your IaC config files to find vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. This means you find the security problems before you deploy. Mondoo analyzes Kubernetes manifests, Terraform code, and Docker images.

Asset Overview

Mondoo even integrates with your existing developer software development workflows with minimal friction. You can make Mondoo IaC scanning a part of your CI/CD automation with any of these tools:
  • CircleCI
  • GitHub Actions
  • GitLab CI/CD
  • Jenkins
  • Microsoft Azure Pipelines

Mondoo integrates with GitLab

Mondoo comes stocked with an ever-increasing collection of codified policies for all of your business-critical infrastructure. Using policy as code, teams with Mondoo can automate enforcement of security guidelines. This practice reduces security incidents in production and gives you more time to focus on innovation.

Container scanning

Mondoo's container scans systematically review cloud containers and their components to reveal potential security threats.

Vulnerabilities Report

Mondoo scans your running containers, container images, and container registries to discover common misconfigurations and CVEs that are easy to fix. It helps you avoid blind spots and close holes for which vendors have supplied fixes.

CVE Detail

Cloud Workload Protection (CWPP)

Mondoo protects server workloads in hybrid and multicloud data center environments. It reveals vulnerabilities in your server workloads and provides quick solutions for repairing them. Mondoo keeps track of your entire inventory of cloud workload assets:
  • Servers
  • Hypervisors
  • Virtual Machines
  • Containers
  • Endpoints

Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)

You need to manage cloud access risk. Mondoo alerts you when your cloud resources have careless and over permissive access.

AWS IAM Best Practices Policy

Many of Mondoo's out-of-the-box security policies focus entirely on entitlement and access management. They enforce industry best practices across operating systems, containers, and more. You can pick and choose the details of each Mondoo entitlement policy you apply to the different elements in your infrastructure. You can also define your own entitlement policies to tailor to the specific needs of your organization.

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)

It's essential for you to identify misconfiguration issues and compliance risks in your cloud. Mondoo continuously monitors cloud infrastructure for gaps in security policy enforcement.

For example, if your company maintains HIPAA standards, you can use Mondoo to assess your infrastructure's adherence to those standards.


Mondoo comes with nearly 200 out-of-the box policies ready for you to choose from. Many are certified by the Center for Internet Security (CIS), while others are based on deep industry knowledge and best practices. Mondoo's built-in policies are the results of years of security research and penetration testing.

You can customize policies or write new policies to meet your organization's specific requirements. Mondoo's powerful query language finds every answer you need.

Mondoo continuously assesses your infrastructure's compliance and helps you prioritize changes. Preparing for audits seems like business-as-usual. Furthermore, audits themselves don't need to be full of unpleasant surprises. Long before a compliance audit, you're well aware of how your system will stand up to inspection, and you've had time to improve.

One platform, one engine

A CNAPP is truly a Swiss army knife of infrastructure security, combining so many solutions in one. And it's important to ensure that all the solutions are truly unified.

Some cloud security solution providers buy and/or build a handful of separate tools, combine them under an umbrella platform name, and claim the result is a CNAPP. They're trying to sell you a Swiss army knife, but your gut tells you it's just some tools stuck together with duct tape. These mash-ups don't run on the same engine or have unified data output. As a result, they can present the same disadvantages as slapping together your own patchwork: security gaps and an overwhelming amount of overlapping and unprioritized data.

Mondoo is designed from the start to fulfill all of the security compliance needs of a cloud infrastructure. At Mondoo, we first built our powerful engine and query language, which can explore and reveal aspects of even the most complex systems. Then we began building security-specific problem-solving capabilities upon that base. The result is a single engine running a highly effective and fully unified CNAPP.
