  • What We Do

    Cloud technology holds the promise of a more efficient style of IT operations, with more automation, scalability, and much-improved capital allocation. This is why cloud adoption has been a big trend that is benefitting large companies, even in verticals with stringent compliance requirements.


    The challenge is that, as with any paradigm shift in technology, organizations often struggle. Cloud architecture, operations, and security require a specialized skill set that is still in short supply. The consequence is felt directly in projects that fail to meet deadlines or savings projections, plus a failure to maintain adequate levels of security and compliance controls.

  • "Overall organizations are 3x as likely to have high-value assets with severe findings off-prem vs. on-prem"

    "Through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault."

  • Our team of seasoned cloud and security experts will help your IT and security teams to define the right cloud strategy, adopt best practices, implement security automation, avoid common pitfalls and get the most out of your cloud investments.

    Given the right tools and expertise, we can help your cloud environments achieve a superior level of security at a fraction of the cost when compared to an equivalent on-premises infrastructure.

  • "Enterprises that implement appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer security failures."

    "Overall, organizations are over twice as likely to have high or critical exposures in high-value assets hosted in the cloud vs. on-prem. BUT clouds with the lowest exposure rates do twice as well as on-prem."
