HITRUST + Kubernetes = Datica

Datica bridges security, compliance and your favorite technologies together to offer a complete, enterprise cloud solution for regulated industries.

Customers use technologies like Kubernetes to deploy containerized workloads combined with Datica to guarantee a continuously compliant state. Additionally, Datica add-ons give users the option to deploy cloud native services and other 3rd party tools that are configured to be compliant by default against Datica’s Cloud Compliance Management System — the mechanism that powers the Datica Platform.

The Datica Cloud Compliance Management System (CCMS)

The CCMS is a complex set of components that give you visibility and control over the compliance of your technology:

  • Compliance Artifact Storage (CAS): Datica’s compliance deployments (logging, monitoring, IDS, etc.) within the your technology stack will report and log compliance artifacts to the CAS. The CAS resides on your Cloud account as an encrypted block storage object.
  • Ingestion: The running state of your technology is reported back to the Datica Compliance Engine (CE) for processing. The CE will then send certain compliance artifacts back to the CAS for storage.
  • Compliance Engine: The core value of the Datica Cloud Compliance Management System is that we are continuously ensuring the complete compliance of both your cluster, and the underlying infrastructure that it resides on. We do this by comparing the running state with the expected compliance state.
  • Management: Datica manages the compliance state of your cluster through intrusion detection review and remediation; vulnerability scanning management, remediation and proaction; and compliance reporting for HITRUST, SOC 2 and GDPR and more.

Leverage the power of Kubernetes

Compliant and HITRUST certified Kubernetes in 10 minutes

Datica automatically configures your underlying infrastructure, installs and configures a highly available Kubernetes cluster, and connects that cluster to Datica’s Cloud Compliance Management System — all in 10 minutes.

1. Setup


First we collect information about your cloud provider, required infrastructure to run your deployments, and how redundant you want the master cluster to be (HA by default).

2. Installation


With the required information, Datica installs a new Kubernetes cluster into your account (or into Datica’s account, your choice).

3. Verification


Once the cluster is installed, and all system-level configurations are set, the Platform will begin continuously pulling the cluster’s running state and compare that to the required compliance state.

4. Done!


Start shipping! Your newly deployed Kubernetes cluster is ready for use. Scale and manage infrastructure at will. The Datica Compliance Management System has your back.

Datica's shared responsibility model

With Datica’s Cloud Compliance Management System, we ensure both the cluster and the underlying infrastructure on your cloud account are secure and compliant to the highest standards across an ever-growing list of frameworks and regimes.
