Policies and Policy Groups

Tenable Cloud Security uses policies to identify misconfigurations and vulnerabilities present on cloud resources. Tenable Cloud Security has built-in policies for cloud and IaC resources that define the compliance standard for your cloud and IaC infrastructure. Tenable Cloud Security combines related policies in a policy group. A policy can support multiple benchmarks. Therefore, a policy group includes all the benchmarks supported by the policies in the group.

Tenable Cloud Security includes built-in policies and policy groups for all cloud providers. You can also create custom policies and policy groups.

To see a list of all policies, see Tenable Cloud Security Policies.
