Stacklet SaaS Platform Enables Organizations to Enforce Governance Policies at Scale

Stacklet announced that the Stacklet platform is now available as software as a service (SaaS). Stacklet’s SaaS platform makes it easier for organizations to transition to governance as a code model, enabling them to securely innovate in the cloud at scale.

As organizations accelerate their migration to the cloud, complexity, cost, and risk increase. These challenges are compounded by the fact that development and operations teams are using an increasingly diverse range of cloud services, configuration options, and deployment tools across multiple clouds. As a result, organizations struggle to enforce governance policies without hampering developer velocity due to manual processes, diverse tools, and stakeholders.

A new paradigm: governance as code

Governance as code, led by the OSS Cloud Custodian project, is a new paradigm that enables organizations to use code to manage and automate various aspects of governance, including cost, operations, security, and compliance . But often organizations struggle to find the resources, skills, and time to implement and scale the adoption of governance as tools and code processes across multiple cloud accounts, platforms, and teams. .

“As we expanded the use of the cloud to support our growing business, we needed to enforce organizational policies without overburdening our teams,” said Paul Hamman, chief information security officer, Cantaloup. “Governance as a code model and Cloud Custodian touched us and brought us to Stacklet. The other tools we evaluated lacked real-time correction capabilities and were difficult to use. Stacklet Platform got us up and running quickly and now helps us detect and take action against non-compliant and risky assets in real time. »

Stacklet Platform accelerates an organization’s ability to adopt cloud governance as code by reducing the operational complexity of deploying and managing multiple policies, tools, and processes. Stacklet Platforms extends Cloud Custodian with intelligent management capabilities such as governance insights, real-time asset inventory, out-of-the-box policy packs, and advanced communications to enable DevSecOps and FinOps teams to automate and more easily enforce large-scale governance policies.

The Stacklet platform allows organizations to:

  • Rapidly adopt governance as code for automated, real-time policy enforcement: Use out-of-the-box policies or your own Cloud Custodian policies with built-in GitOps that automatically syncs policy changes and only requires basic knowledge of Git. Stacklet Platform seamlessly integrates with popular messaging and ticketing systems to resolve security risks or cost overruns faster.
  • Reduce operational overhead and deploy policies at scale: with automated account onboarding, policy linking, communication templates, and an intuitive management console that works across all clouds. Additionally, because the Stacklet platform is offered via SaaS, it eliminates the operational effort required to manage the tools infrastructure.
  • Improve cloud fleet visibility and compliance: Leveraging a comprehensive real-time asset database and out-of-the-box dashboards to visualize cloud resources, configurations, and compliance.
  • Standardize policy management, notifications, and remediation across domains and clouds: via a single platform to create, deploy and collaborate on governance policies covering security, compliance, costs and operations.

“Cloud Custodian is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for cloud-as-code governance with millions of downloads worldwide every month,” said Travis Stanfield, co-founder and CEO of Stacklet. “While many cloud and security teams already use Cloud Custodian, Stacklet Platform makes it easy to adopt, maintain, and scale Cloud Custodian across multiple clouds and organizational groups. With our new SaaS offering, organizations with hundreds of accounts can onboard in minutes and can quickly gain visibility and enforce policies across multiple cloud platforms.”
