The Value of Cloud Management Automation

The DisruptOps cloud management platform finds AND fixes security, operations, and cost management issues at scale, regardless of the size of your cloud.

Continuous Assessment

The Cloud is agile by definition. Developers constantly change things. Operations teams continuously change things. And with each change, you run the risk of violating corporate security policies and straying from best practices. Thus you want to continuously monitor and assess your environment to find violations and then take a variety of actions. DisruptOps Guardrails maintains a multi-account inventory of all cloud resources, can assign tags to those resources and support separate policies based on the tags. For example, you can implement different security policies for your Dev and Prod environments. With this kind of flexibility, DisruptOps allows developers to move fast and the operations team to enforce the best practices.

Automated Enforcement

The last thing you need is more alerts telling you about all of the broken stuff in your cloud. After identifying issues, DisruptOps gives you many options for remediation. Given the velocity of cloud activity, you need all the help you can get. Thus Guardrails can be automatically enforced, making changes to move your environment back to the best practice configuration. Better yet, DisruptOps Guardrails are production tested and maintained, unlike many of the scripts your teams have built to enforce the policies. It’s time to “ditch your scripts.”

Guardrails, Not Blockers

Remember that the prime directive for cloud security is not to slow down the DevOps process. That said, you need to protect corporate data and enforce security policies and best practices. Guardrails do not block activity; rather it enforces the policies as intended. You can set whitelists and exceptions for resources where the guardrails don’t apply. For example, if admin access is opened for a security group, the group isn’t blocked since that would prevent administrators from doing their jobs. Instead, DisruptOps sets the policy only to allow connections from authorized corporate IP ranges. Likewise, if an administrator account requires MFA and that’s turned off, as opposed to preventing all access (and taking the admin offline), DisruptOps will reset the policy to require MFA.

Quickest Path to DevSecOps

Today adding “Sec” to the DevOps process involves a lot of manual effort to build, test and maintain scripts. With DisruptOps Guardrails, no programming is necessary. Provisioning happens via a 1-click process and Ops are implemented and managed via an intuitive user experience. DisruptOps provides reporting and supports role-based access control to ensure only authorized parties can make changes to the parts of the cloud they manage. {d:Ops} allows you to “ditch the scripts” and get back to more important work.

Adheres to Least Privilege

The security canon of least privilege is religion within DisruptOps. We always assign only the least amount of privilege required to complete an action, and then we remove those privileges once making the change. We manage privileges aggressively and continuously to ensure that no additional attack surface results from automating critical aspects of your cloud security and operations.

Cloud Native

DisruptOps was built in the cloud, for the cloud and utilizes cloud best practices including multiple account structures, encryption everywhere, platform as a service offering and heavily leverages APIs, containers, micro-services, and function as a service. This approach both minimizes the attack surface of our application and allows instantaneous integration with your cloud environment. The founders of DisruptOps have been advocating for cloud-native architecture for close to a decade, and our product reflects those core beliefs.
