Creating a More Predictable, Secure, Public Cloud
Improved regulatory compliance and performance monitoring, plus significant savings on AWS
AHEAD has done the extensive research on the right tools for monitoring cloud billing, inventory, security, and compliance.
We developed our own proprietary message bus to make sure what we’re monitoring can easily be integrated into ServiceNow for incident management. And we employ Slack for ChatOps support and access to AHEAD cloud experts. Access to all of this – reporting, monitoring, and incident management – is delivered through a single sign-on portal.
Security and Compliance Monitoring
CoPilot helps monitor your environment for proper controls and configurations along with monitoring changes made either manually or programmatically.
The following frameworks are supported with near-real time alerting and ticket creation to provide your team visibility into the environment:
- PCI-DSS 3.2
- NIST 800-53
This is exactly what we need to do with the best of breed tools. But we don’t have the time or resource to constantly evaluate, configure, tune, or troubleshot them – let alone monitor all of the data they generate.
