New Platform Released for Cloud Security and Risk Management

By CIOReview | Tuesday, June 25, 2019

A new SaaS platform released for a unified view of compliance, security and cloud infrastructure management with the capacity to shift left by conducting validation of policies to ultimately support a multilateral source of truth for cloud compliance.

FREMONT, CA: Fugue recently announced the merger between its products, Fugue Platform and Fugue Risk manager, to create a singular SaaS solution. The new merger of products uses cloud infrastructure in delivering reports and compliance assurance. The application incorporates compliance and security early in the software development life cycle (SDLC).    

“Compliance teams can prove infrastructure compliance, security teams can protect sensitive data from misconfiguration, and application teams can shift left by validating against policy early in the software development lifecycle,” says Phillip Merrick, CEO of Fugue.

The new product by Fugue allows the latest tech supporting self-healing cloud infrastructure security technology developed in a consortium of the Intelligence community (IC) to promote the ease of use of the product as commercial enterprise SaaS product. The platform by Fugue provides privileges like an enhanced interface, sped up time-to-value by Fugue’s Risk manager, and improved functions in compliance reporting. 

The “Shift left” strategy in Fugue’s platform is enabled for the Fugue risk manager’s customers in addition to the cloud resource visualization tools. This feature will allow validation of cloud infrastructure at the beginning of the SDLC with the help of Fugue API. The benefits guaranteed for the existing customers are continuously availed to set up a conjunctive source of truth for cloud compliance and security. This will enforce the drift detection and self-healing of critical cloud resources. The four main enterprise cloud use cases which are being delivered in the new Fugue release are:

• The capability to “Shift left” on the cloud infrastructure security and compliance reporting.

• To reconnect with the existing stakeholders and create new connections with the latest customers by building trust from baselines.

• Availing self-healing of critical cloud resources to secure the information against data leaks and misconfiguration via baseline enforcement. 

• Cloud infrastructure compliance with various policy frameworks like GDPR, CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark, HIPAA, ISO 27001, PCI, and SOC 2.

“The cloud has enabled innovation at a pace never before seen, but moving fast can introduce new security and compliance risks—and friction between application, security, and compliance teams,” said Merrick. “Fugue’s unified SaaS solution brings these teams into alignment with infrastructure baselines, which serve as a single source of truth and trust for their cloud environments.”
