CloudCheckr and Allgress Partner to Simplify Compliance for the AWS Cloud
April 19, 2017

CloudCheckr announced a partnership and integration with Allgress, the AWS-certified compliance platform, which provides compliance controls mapping for NIST 800-53, PCI DSS, HIPAA and other standards.

The integration enables Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers utilizing the CloudCheckr CMP platform to make compliance even easier by quickly checking and managing the compliance and cybersecurity of their AWS cloud in one unified view.

“Staying up on compliance for the public cloud is a major undertaking which requires a continuous investment in time and effort to demonstrate compliance,” said Gordon Shevlin, CEO at Allgress. “We announced last month the RPM tool for AWS customers to help significantly reduce the complexity, increase the speed, and shorten the time frame of achieving compliance, including compliance with legislation such as Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and FISMA. We are excited to be partnering with CloudCheckr to help make compliance simple and actionable for the AWS cloud.”

By integrating CloudCheckr’s 400+ best practices for AWS into Allgress RPM, customers can even easier prove compliance for their AWS environment by mapping the specific controls, including NIST 800-53 (FedRAMP), PCI, HIPAA and the Center for Internet Security (CIS), to their AWS services. When combined with CloudCheckr’s cloud security capabilities, customers get an AWS-certified solution to manage, monitor and control their security and compliance posture. With this partnership and integration, CloudCheckr customers can report on their compliance posture immediately by leveraging single sign-on from the CloudCheckr platform.

“Allgress is an invaluable partner allowing customers to map our controls into the relevant compliance standards. They have done much of the heavy lifting of understanding these complex standards and allowing organizations to meet these requirements," stated Aaron Newman, Co-Founder and CEO of CloudCheckr. “We are dedicated to providing a unified experience for our customers and this partnership certainly takes much of the mystery out of cloud compliance and makes it highly actionable for our customers in regulated industries.”
