Public cloud market has surpassed $200B in 2017, and cloud is no longer disruptive trend but rather a hard reality and a ubiquitous IT paradigm that is here to stay. However, surveys show that many enterprises still have concerns about security, data confidentiality and data privacy in the cloud and have either delayed their cloud implementations or haven’t maximized the potential of cloud. Yes, these concerns are real and many cloud implementations are dynamic and complex, and operate in a totally different model, covering numerous services, resources and data sources, which traditional monitoring tools simply cannot catch up with. In addition, most environments quickly go out of control, as cloud provides virtually unlimited capacity and makes it really easy to provision resources. Enterprises are in need of an effective governance solution to provide visibility, oversight and control of their cloud implementations.
With cfxDimensions Cloud Governance solution enterprises can in real-time ensure 100% security conformance, regulatory compliance (like CIS, NIST, PCI DSS etc.), resource and cost optimization of their cloud implementations on AWS and Azure. AppDimensions collects data from many cloud resources, services and presents a clear and objective view of current security & compliance posture, to uncover hidden security risks and compliance violations. Enterprises can also extend their corporate IT controls/policies to cloud.
