CloudCheckr, an enterprise cloud management platform available on Amazon Web Services, announced a new compliance module to its software suite at the 2018 AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington, DC.
With the addition of the Total Compliance module, CloudCheckr said its enterprise cloud management platform meets the strictest federal compliance standards. Cities, agencies and organizations on AWS can now automatically and continuously monitor cloud infrastructure for compliance with more than 30 standards, such as:
- NIST 800-53
In addition, Total Compliance allows CloudCheckr customers to remediate issues and provide audit logs for third-party verification of compliance.
“Public sector organizations are keenly aware of the productivity and security rewards of digital transformation, recognizing the cloud’s ability to increase security and productivity amid heavy compliance requirements,” said Aaron Newman, CEO/Founder at CloudCheckr. “The addition of Total Compliance to our suite of products makes us the largest all-in-one solution for cost, security and now compliance for both the private and public sectors.”
The new module is in addition to the platform’s Cost Management and Security modules. It’s available in all regions, on AWS GovCloud and to agency-classified customers. Federal, state and local governments and related organizations on AWS can use the tool to maintain strict public sector-based regulatory, compliance, security and privacy needs, according to the company.
“Public sector organizations are increasingly called upon to be compliant with many different standards in the cloud,” said Jeff Valentine, chief product officer at CloudCheckr. “Our customers want to demonstrate that their workloads in the cloud are safe and secure. CloudCheckr has deep experience in cybersecurity and cost management, and now our new Total Compliance module extends our industry leadership in cloud management,” he said.
