Managing security evaluations of infrastructure-as-code (IaC) files becomes increasingly difficult as a company grows. Many organizations only have a few engineers with cloud security expertise, and they could have tens of thousands of objects running in production at one time. There may be multiple projects happening at the same time, using the same set of Terraform files, or using separate sets of files targeting the same cloud environment and influencing each other. Reviewing all these files manually is time-consuming and can slow down delivery times. And if something is missed, the consequences can be costly. Research commissioned by IBM revealed the average cost of a data breach in 2020 was nearly $4 million.
