Preparing for Compliance Posture Scanning
Cloud Compliance posture scanning uses a Compliance Scanner task which is installed in your monitored cloud instances.
The Cloud Scanner task interacts with the local cloud APIs under the instruction of the remote management console. This architecture removes the need to open up cloud APIs to remote (over the internet) clients, where security is harder to achieve.
