Compliance Lifecycle Automation

Compliance lifecycle automation helps you avoid drift and keeps your cloud compliance continuously under control.

Why compliance lifecycle automation matters

Building compliance into SaaS applications requires significant security expertise with deep knowledge of compliance frameworks. And once you get there, actually maintaining compliance tends to be just as hard.

By anchoring your cloud design with compliance automation, it reduces time to getting compliant and effort for staying compliant, which saves you thousands of dollars and endless hours every year (or with each assessment).

The pillars of the compliance lifecycle

Provisioning

The activities involved in creating and maintaining an environment where your application code is connected and data can live securely in your cloud account.

Configuration

Now you must determine which cloud resources underly your application in your environment and the hundreds of configuration settings in order confirm that they are secure and compliant.

Evidence Collection

After you've implemented your configuration settings, the process begins of actually mapping and logging configurations to the controls for the specific framework you require adherence with.

Documentation

Finally, you must now be able to succinctly present the many hours of work you've done to ensure your solution is compliant to an assessor, customer, or stakeholder.

How automation comes into play


Reduce Your Compliance & Security Scope

Instead of having your development team maintain hundreds or thousands of compliance configurations for your cloud account, environments, and cloud resources – design deployment packs that insulate your team from many of those on-going configuration choices. The foundations of keeping compliance drift at bay.


Guarantee Certainty of Outcome

By automating the configuration of compliance conformance packs your production solutions will only deploy in a compliant manner, empowering development teams to keep innovating.


Streamline The Certification Preparation Timeline

Aligning your infrastructure configurations to evidence and logging data means everything you need is automatically collected for HIPAA, HITRUST, SOC 2, etc., easily proving to anyone that the cloud design you've implemented is compliant.


Keeping Your Policies and Configurations Fresh

By actively following and implementing the updates from major compliance frameworks, you eliminate the worries of your configurations drifting out of compliance. Continue to automate complaint deployments and show everyone your rockstar status.

Compliance lifecycle automation helps you save between 3 and 12 “person months” of labor and accelerate time to market by at least 45 days.

How Datica helps you implement lifecycle compliance automation

Phase 1
Environment provisioning
Datica Cloud Compliance (DCC) creates compliant VPCs for your applications. The difficult networking and configuration decisions for your team become a thing of the past.

Phase 2
Application deployment
Bringing an application is as simple as utilizing Docker images, code repositories, or Cloud Native Buildpacks, and making a few tweaks to align with compliance configurations.

Phase 3
Build additional infrastructure
Now that your application is ready, choose the automatically compliant cloud resources that underly your application, like, Aurora DB, S3, ElasticSearch, and VPNs.

Phase 4
Maintain compliance
Continuously monitor compliance for your AWS account, environment, and all your cloud services with the configuration mappings to your desired compliance framework.

Phase 5
Gather evidence
Generate the most up-to-date policies and procedures from major compliance frameworks and document compliance specific to your organization with the DCC template generator.

Complete infrastructure compliance. Your easiest path to (continued) adherence.
