In the field of security capabilities, CSPM is a relatively recent concept. Cloud Security Posture Management has become popular in the last few years as more companies have implemented a cloud-first approach. CSPM helps them to track the risk and automatically correct any security problems. There are no overhead costs for setup, and agile implementation and security insights support customers. As the cloud ecosystem has grown in many areas, CSPM can be used by organisations to consolidate any potential misconfigurations and create a consistent information relay network. They will comply with structures such as HIPAA, SOC2, and CIS v1.1 when they use CSPM. This increases the confidence of consumers in the protection of the company and cloud.

In combination with CSPM, software tools like Cloud Access Control Brokers (CASB) are increasingly used. A CASB protects the knowledge exchange between in-house IT architecture and cloud environments and expands the security practises of an enterprise outside the in-house networks. CSPM can spot problems such as lack of security, incorrect key control of encryption, extra permissions for accounts, and others. Therefore, a majority of active attacks on cloud providers result from misconfiguration, according to a study by Gartner, and CSPM will mitigate these risks.
