SEATTLE, May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 2nd Watch announces the availability of new services designed to help enterprises instill more corporate governance and institutional compliance with their public cloud usage.
The new Compliance Assessment and Remediation Service is designed to evaluate, monitor, report and remediate non-compliance of a company’s current public cloud infrastructure against multiple security and regulatory standards. This limited engagement allows the Chief Security Officer to establish a baseline of the company’s existing cloud state of compliance against a choice of regulatory standards, including PCI, HIPPA, GDPR, CIS, NIST and SOC 2, as well as other defined corporate policies, and then develop a “get-well” plan in preparation of a compliance audit.
After completing the Compliance and Remediation Services engagement, 2nd Watch clients can transition into its new Managed Governance and Compliance Services, which are designed to help enterprises remain compliant between audits. This fully managed service provides 24x7 monitoring of all major public cloud environments with notification of policy violations to 2nd Watch’s team of experts, who work to identify and remediate the configuration drift causing the non-compliant state, while ensuring that an up-to-date audit trail is kept at all times in compliance with applicable regulatory guidelines.
“Chief Information Security Officers acknowledge that enterprises are embracing public cloud and they are not looking to slow adoption, but they are challenged with putting guardrails in place to mitigate risk and ensure that when a compliance audit comes, they are prepared,” says Chris Garvey, EVP of Product at 2nd Watch. “All too often, audit preparation turns into a mad scramble to validate the state of the public cloud environment, remediate glaring issues and collect all the required documentation, while hoping nothing was missed. These new Governance and Compliance Services are designed to eliminate the last-minute fire drills and allow enterprises to have confidence in the compliance state of their public cloud.”
