“The issue with AWS is the two-edged sword of a constantly broadening set of services. Cloudnexa’s ability to get essentially unlimited resources behind it gives us a 2:1 advantage over a single hire investigating on their own.”
AWS expertise to meet the highest compliance standards
Cloudnexa took the burden off of ShelterZoom’s team by developing a compliance plan, working to produce and implement the plan in a timely manner, and adding expertise and resources that enabled ShelterZoom to develop their applications and deliver them on the cloud infrastructure.
The plan helped ShelterZoom mature their capabilities in five key areas:
- Logs and monitoring
- Education and training
- Secrets management
- Identity management
- Vulnerability management
Cloudnexa’s team then helped contractors and multinational teams transition by writing a synopsis of ShelterZoom’s compliance needs, interfacing with each vendor, and solving objections as they arose across various parts of the organization.
AWS Config played a pivotal role throughout this process. AWS Config simplifies compliance with regulator frameworks by providing continuous monitoring of critical systems to ensure that security policies are followed. Its capabilities equip ShelterZoom with the tools they need for compliance auditing, security analysis, resource change tracking, and troubleshooting.
“The speed to market and efficiency comes from having a group that’s already been down this road and that understands the breadth of the tools that AWS offers. Partnering with Cloudnexa saves us from wasting money on experimentation because everything is tried and true.”
Fully managed support for a busy DevOps team
Having an AWS managed solution enables ShelterZoom to stay nimble, adapt to, and overcome unexpected business challenges. Vince now describes Cloudnexa as the “backbone of the DevOps side of the house.”
ShelterZoom is building a Zero Trust environment that is GDPR and ISO compliant. Vince says that leveraging strong partners like Cloudnexa has decreased the time to certification by up to 2/3. Additionally, ShelterZoom is able to achieve certification without piling extra work onto its already busy engineers.
The benefits of this partnership speak for themselves: enhanced business functionality, safeguarded data, and support for all cloud deployments.
“If I compare what we pay for the service vs. hiring someone, I’d be paying magnitudes more for the same skillsets and most of those people would need extensive training and then would be expensive to retain. Investing in Cloudnexa is just good value.”
