Wiz technology allows security and development teams to identify, prioritize and prevent risks in the cloud. The technology scans the cloud environment by interfacing with an API, and provides an in-depth analysis of the resources in the cloud, including the network structure, as well as access permissions and configuration errors that could provide an opening for attackers. The platform also scans the application and software layer and identifies weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Wiz’s platform actually combines all the findings into one clear picture of the most essential risks in the cloud, by calculating hundreds of different risks and the relationships between them.
