About Security Configuration Audit for SaaS

Security Configuration Audit for SaaS is part of MVISION Cloud's SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) solution. This solution provides visibility into any possible misconfigurations in your corporate SaaS services and allows you to remediate them. 

Currently, Security Configuration Audit has policies on the following Microsoft 365 apps:

  • SharePoint Online
  • OneDrive
  • Azure Active Directory
  • Intune
  • Teams

The Configuration Audit for SaaS solution follows a workflow similar to the IaaS solution. The workflow is divided into the following parts: 

  1. Policy Templates. Predefined configuration audit policies are provided on the Policy Templates page.  
  2. On-Demand Scans. When the feature is enabled, it starts a Configuration Audit scan that runs once every 24 hours. For more information, see On-Demand Scans for Configuration Audit for SaaS.
  3. Policies. Policy templates that are imported as part of an On-Demand Scan are displayed on the Security Configuration Audit page. Policies are imported and made Active by default, but you can change their status to Inactive at any time. Inactive policies are not used for the next On-Demand Scan. 
  4. Incidents. Configuration data is imported via Microsoft 365 APIs and validated against the policies. All policy violations are displayed on the Policy Incidents page. The Policy Incidents Cloud Card also provides steps for remediation. Follow these steps to remediate incidents. Once remediated, the incident will not show up on the next scan. 
  5. Resources. Configuration Audit policies are defined at multiple levels of a SaaS service. For example, with SharePoint, policies are defined at Account, User, User Group, Site, and Device levels. Find your Microsoft 365 Resources on the Resources page, which helps you to understand the compliance, risk, and incidents associated with each resource.
