Cloud Governance Automation

Concerns with the unknown and concerns of losing control are probably two major hurdles for any transformation in a corporate environment. When looking through a Security or Financial lens, these concerns are further magnified. Cloud Adoption in an enterprise falls squarely in this bucket. Though there are other dimensions to this transformation, the right partner can help provide the necessary tooling, automation, and training to help gain visibility into assets deployed on Cloud and to enforce enterprise standards and best practices.
