SoftwareAG Government Solutions (GS) is an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of Software AG. Customers include some of the biggest agencies in the public sector.
SoftwareAG Government Solutions embraced Amazon Web Services (AWS) for better elasticity, cost savings, and access to compute resources. Historically, they leveraged a corporate, home-grown tool to provision and manage compute resources for customer demonstrations. The team required a new approach in order to firewall access to the U.S. environments.
Their goals for this project were the following:
InsightCloudSec protects cloud and container environments from misconfigurations, policy violations, threats, and IAM challenges. As Chris Borneman, Vice President, Software AG says, “InsightCloudSec provides next-generation automation, management, and insights into our cloud infrastructure.” The Software AG team turned to Rapid7 to gain visibility and real-time automated remediation across multiple AWS accounts, regions, and services.
The Software AG team leveraged InsightCloudSec to achieve continuous security and compliance, and improved governance of their AWS environments:
Since 2018, Software AG has achieved 50% faster self-service driven by our tool’s ability to quickly identify and remediate compliance issues made during deployment.
Rapid7 has helped Software AG secure their AWS services to transform digital innovation. Our differentiating capabilities around compliance packs, remediation, and scorecard visibility enabled them to maintain near real-time compliance and start their automation journey.
