Definition - What does CloudAudit mean?

CloudAudit is a Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) working group that automates the audit, assertion, assessment and assurance of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) environments.

CloudAudit is a control specification for cloud computing vendors and organizations implementing such solutions. It is designed to streamline and automate audit processes.

Techopedia explains CloudAudit

CloudAudit refers to structured standards specified by the Cloud Security Alliance. The initiative was started by Christofer Hoff of Cisco and many other cross-industrial personnel and professionals, including cloud vendors, cloud platform providers, consultants, end users and auditors. It was initially coded as A6, an acronym for automated audit, assertion, assessment and assurance API.

CloudAudit was designed to provide cloud customers with data or information regarding cloud performance and security and ensure its availability at all times in a systematic and detailed order. It also provides automated statistical data regarding performance and security in a standardized way for analysis and comparison. It saves cost in terms of time for both large and small organizations because the information is provided once and is automatically updated as soon as it is modified.
