Independent Software Vendors

Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) with cloud-hosted applications can better protect their customers’ data, assure general business compliance such as SOC2, ISO and regulatory compliance such as PCI, HIPAA, and FFIEC.

Security Assurance

Most software companies today have Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings and are hosting such offerings on one of the cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Being advanced adopters of the latest cloud technologies, ISVs upgrade their application architecture to leverage the most advanced PaaS and Serverless cloud workloads. Traditional on premises security architectures don’t work in the cloud, and ISVs need to have a cloud-native security operating model.

Cloudneeti provides market-leading capabilities in cloud security posture assurance for the leading cloud platforms such as Azure and AWS, while GCP is on the roadmap for 2019. With over 1,000 security policies out of the box, the product provides the best possible coverage. It has sophisticated governance, and auto-remediation capabilities enable continuous security assurance. The product has the required integrations with DevSecOps and SOC tools for a closed loop remediation cycle.

Compliance Assurance

ISVs need to demonstrate to their enterprise customers robustness of their business operations and secure handling of customer data. Depending on the region, ISO and SOC2 are the minimum required certifications. Auditors expect ISVs to provide evidence of secure data handling and following cloud security best practices in their cloud environment. Traditionally this required manual effort, and some ISVs attempted to automate this data collection using scripts and custom code.

Cloudneeti offers a very robust and cost-efficient solution to collect the required compliance evidence for the cloud environment. The needed compliance reports are available within a few minutes after onboarding the relevant production cloud accounts. Such reports can be used for a quick initial assessment, identification of any deviation from required security policies and triggering a remediation project to eliminate any deviations from standard. After that, the product can be used for continuous compliance assurance, making sure the cloud infrastructure is fully compliant all the time.

Data Privacy

ISVs target global markets including North America, Europe and APAC. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the primary law in the European Union (EU). California passed a consumer privacy law in 2018, the most stringent data protection requirements in the United States.

Cloudneeti provides out-of-the-box GDPR compliance reporting for the cloud environments. Data privacy teams have instant visibility into their GDPR compliance status and can track progress of their improvement projects with ease.
