New Features

Feature
Description
Change in Existing Behavior
Alert Count on Policy Violations
This change was first announced in the look ahead that was published with the 22.5.2 release.
Earlier on Prisma Cloud, when an asset generated an alert for a policy violation, the alert was counted towards the most severe violation. For example, for an asset that had violations for low, medium, and high severity policies, the alert was only counted in the high category although it was also violating medium and low severity policies. In this method of counting alerts, when you view the total count of failed checks it adds up to the sum of all low, medium, and high severity failures.
The above method of counting alerts is modified to display the total count of policy violations for each severity. So, using the same example, if an asset has violations for low, medium, and high severity policies, the alert will now be counted in each of the three categories. Therefore, when you view the total count of failed checks and compare it to the sum total of each category, the sum will be higher. This count is displayed on several places on the Prisma Cloud management console such as on the
Compliance
Overview
,
Asset Inventory
(Inventory > Assets), and
Alerts
Overview
.
This change in how Prisma Cloud count assets that failed policy checks will not be updated for any compliance reports generated before your Prisma Cloud instance is upgraded to the current release. This means that the count displayed in the table on
Compliance
Reports
is a snapshot of the previous counting method for reports generated earlier. The count for failed checks in these reports will not match the data in the
Compliance
Overview
page when you filter for the time period for which the report was generated.
Skips API Ingestion when Cloud Billing on GCP is Disabled
When the Cloud Asset Inventory (CAI) service is enabled and if Cloud Billing is disabled for a project by default, Prisma Cloud skips the ingestion of GCP APIs. This is true when the project is onboarded as a standalone or a child project of an organization, but not for a master service account (MSA).
Impact—
If you do not enable CAI, Prisma Cloud will ingest all the GCP APIs even if Cloud Billing is disabled for a project.
Change in Existing Behavior
Resolution of Undeletes for Google Cloud Resources
This change was announced in the look ahead that was published with the 22.6.1 release.
All the resources for
gcloud-compute-networks-subnets-list
and
gcloud-compute-networks-list
will be deleted once and then regenerated on the management console.
Existing alerts corresponding to these resources will be resolved as
Resource_Updated
, and new alerts will be generated against policy violations.
Impact—
You may notice a reduced count for the number of alerts. However, the alert count will return to the original numbers once the resources for
gcloud-compute-networks-subnets-list
and
gcloud-compute-networks-list
start ingesting data again.
Prisma Cloud Data Security
Download and Scan Files up to 100MB for Malware
The file size for malware scanning is now increased from 20MB to 100MB. The uncompressed file size must be less than 100MB.
Prisma Cloud Data Security

New Policies and Policy Updates

See the look ahead updates for planned features and policy updates for 22.6.3.
Policy Updates
Description
New Policy
AWS Lambda Function resource-based policy is overly permissive
Identifies Lambda Functions that have overly permissive resource-based policy. Lambda functions having overly permissive policy could lead to lateral movement in account or privilege being escalated when compromised. It is highly recommended to have the least privileged access policy to protect the Lambda Functions from unauthorized access.
cconfig from cloud.resource where api.name = 'aws-lambda-list-functions' AND json.rule = policy.Statement[?any(Effect equals Allow and Principal equals "*" and Condition does not exist and (Action equals "*" or Action equals lambda:*))] exists
Azure MySQL database flexible server SSL enforcement is disabled
Identifies Azure MySQL database flexible servers for which the SSL enforcement is disabled. SSL connectivity helps to provide a new layer of security by connecting database server to client applications using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Enforcing SSL connections between the database server and client applications helps protect against 'man in the middle' attacks by encrypting the data stream between the server and application.
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'azure' AND api.name = 'azure-mysql-flexible-server' AND json.rule = properties.state equal ignore case "Ready" and require_secure_transport.value equal ignore case "OFF"
Azure MySQL database flexible server using insecure TLS version
Identifies Azure MySQL database flexible servers which are using insecure TLS version. As a security best practice, use the newer TLS version as the minimum TLS version for Azure MySQL database flexible server. Currently, Azure MySQL database flexible server supports TLS 1.2 version which resolves the security gap from its preceding versions.
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'azure' AND api.name = 'azure-mysql-flexible-server' AND json.rule = properties.state equal ignore case "Ready" and require_secure_transport.value equal ignore case "ON" and (tls_version.value does not equal ignore case "TLSV1.2" and tls_version.value does not equal ignore case "TLSV1.3" and tls_version.value does not equal ignore case "TLSV1.2,TLSV1.3" and tls_version.value does not equal ignore case "TLSV1.3,TLSV1.2")
Policy Updates-Metadata

It is highly recommended to restrict Lambda function to known hosts or services only.
Impact—
No impact on alerts.
Policy Updates—RQL
AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) has certificates with Certificate Transparency Logging disabled
Changes—
The policy RQL has been updated to check for valid ACM certificate and added remediation support.
Additional permission required to remediate the alert:
acm:UpdateCertificateOptions
Current RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'aws' AND api.name = 'aws-acm-describe-certificate' AND json.rule = 'type does not equal IMPORTED and (options.certificateTransparencyLoggingPreference equals DISABLED or options.certificateTransparencyLoggingPreference does not exist)'
Updated RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'aws' AND api.name = 'aws-acm-describe-certificate' AND json.rule = 'type does not equal IMPORTED and (options.certificateTransparencyLoggingPreference equals DISABLED or options.certificateTransparencyLoggingPreference does not exist) and status equals ISSUED and _DateTime.ageInDays($.notAfter) < 1'
Remediation CLI—
aws acm update-certificate-options --region ${region} --certificate-arn ${certificateArn} --options CertificateTransparencyLoggingPreference=ENABLED
Impact—
Low. Alerts will get resolved for expired or ACM certificates which does not have status as
ISSUED
.
AWS Customer Master Key (CMK) rotation is not enabled
Changes—
The policy RQL has been updated to check only for KMS symmetric keys.
Current RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'aws' AND api.name='aws-kms-get-key-rotation-status' AND json.rule='keyMetadata.keyState equals Enabled and keyMetadata.keyManager equals CUSTOMER and (rotation_status.keyRotationEnabled is false or rotation_status.keyRotationEnabled equals null)'
Updated RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'aws' AND api.name='aws-kms-get-key-rotation-status' AND json.rule = keyMetadata.keyState equals Enabled and keyMetadata.keyManager equals CUSTOMER and (rotation_status.keyRotationEnabled is false or rotation_status.keyRotationEnabled equals "null") and keyMetadata.customerMasterKeySpec equals SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT
Impact—
Medium. The alerts will be resolved as ‘Policy_Updated’ for KMS resource that is configured with asymmetric keys.
AWS Network Load Balancer (NLB) is not using the latest predefined security policy
Changes—
The policy RQL has been updated to include the latest "ELBSecurityPolicy-TLS13-1-2-2021-06" security policy and exclude the legacy security policy “ELBSecurityPolicy-2016-08”.
Updated Description—
This policy identifies Network Load Balancers (NLBs) which are not using the latest predefined security policy. A security policy is a combination of protocols and ciphers. The protocol establishes a secure connection between a client and a server and ensures that all data passed between the client and your load balancer is private. A cipher is an encryption algorithm that uses encryption keys to create a coded message. So it is recommended to use the latest predefined security policy which uses only secured protocol and ciphers.
Current RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'aws' AND api.name = 'aws-elbv2-describe-load-balancers' AND json.rule = state.code equals active and type equals "network" and listeners[?any(protocol equals TLS and sslPolicy exists and sslPolicy does not contain ELBSecurityPolicy-TLS13-1-0-2021-06 and sslPolicy does not contain ELBSecurityPolicy-2016-08)] exists
Updated RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'aws' AND api.name = 'aws-elbv2-describe-load-balancers' AND json.rule = state.code equals active and type equals "network" and listeners[?any(protocol equals TLS and sslPolicy exists and sslPolicy does not contain ELBSecurityPolicy-TLS13-1-2-2021-06)] exists
Impact—
Low. The alerts will be resolved as ‘Policy_Updated’ for AWS Network Load Balancer that are configured with the latest "ELBSecurityPolicy-TLS13-1-2-2021-06" security policy.

Azure Application Gateway allows TLSv1.1 or lower
Changes—
The policy name, description, RQL, and recommendation are updated as vendor support for TLS versions has been updated.
Current RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'azure' AND api.name = 'azure-application-gateway' AND json.rule = " ['properties.sslPolicy'] does not exist or (['properties.sslPolicy'].policyType == Predefined and ['properties.sslPolicy'].policyName != AppGwSslPolicy20170401S ) or (['properties.sslPolicy'].policyType == Custom and ['properties.sslPolicy'].minProtocolVersion != TLSv1_2)"
Updated RQL—
config from cloud.resource where cloud.type = 'azure' AND api.name = 'azure-application-gateway' AND json.rule = ['properties.sslPolicy'] does not exist or (['properties.sslPolicy'].['policyType'] equal ignore case Predefined and (['properties.sslPolicy'].['policyName'] equal ignore case AppGwSslPolicy20150501 or ['properties.sslPolicy'].['policyName'] equal ignore case AppGwSslPolicy20170401)) or (['properties.sslPolicy'].['policyType'] equal ignore case Custom and (['properties.sslPolicy'].['minProtocolVersion'] equal ignore case TLSv1_0 or ['properties.sslPolicy'].['minProtocolVersion'] equal ignore case TLSv1_1))
Impact—
Previously generated alerts for resources which are configured with TLS new predefined policy (TLSv1.3) will be resolved as ‘Policy_Updated’.

New Compliance Benchmarks and Updates

COMPLIANCE BENCHMARK
DESCRIPTION
Support for Australian Energy Sector Cyber Security Framework (AESCSF)
The Australian Energy Sector Cyber Security Framework (AESCSF) provides a set of cybersecurity guidelines specifically tailored to the Australian Energy sector. This framework enables the owners and operators of energy infrastructure in Australia to assess, evaluate, prioritize, and improve their cybersecurity posture.
The framework involves the analysis of two aspects:
  • Criticality assessment
  • Cyber security capability and maturity self-assessment
Support for Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Information Security Manual (ISM)
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) produces the Information Security Manual (ISM). ISM outlines a cyber security framework that you can apply by using the risk management framework to protect information and systems from cyber threats.
The ISM is intended for Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Information Officers, cyber security professionals, and information technology managers.
Support for Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Essential Eight
The Australian Cyber Security Centre’s (ACSC) Essential Eight is a risk management framework that prioritizes eight mitigation strategies taken from the recommended ACSC’s Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents:
The essential eight security controls are:
  • Application Control — to control the execution of unauthorized software
  • Configure Macros — to block untrusted macros
  • Patch Application — to remediate known security vulnerabilities
  • Application Hardening — to protect against vulnerable functionality
  • Restrict Admin Permissions — to limit powerful access to systems
  • Patch Operating Systems — to remediate known security vulnerabilities
  • Multi-Factor Authentication — to protect against risk activities
  • Daily Backups — to maintain the availability of critical data
Update
New Zealand Information Security Manual (NZISM v3.4)
Prisma Cloud has extended the compliance support for other cloud accounts including Azure, Alibaba, GCP, OCI, along with AWS.
