CMD uses Trend Micro Cloud One - Conformity with 600+ rules mapped against the five pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework and industry compliance standards to assess their customer’s public cloud environments. With every rule violation, remediation steps are offered with clear instructions on how to perform the updates; these changes can be made through the AWS console or via the AWS® Command Line Interface (CLI).
Trend Micro’s approach to cloud security, compliance posture management, and governance is well aligned with CMD’s expertise in professional consulting services that focus on DevSecOps transformations. “Trend Micro Cloud One – Conformity allows us to provide visibility to our customers - that we’re configuring their infrastructure correctly,” says Adam Durbin, CTO of CMD.
CMD has leveraged Cloud One - Conformity’s extensive reporting feature to create new professional services for their managed services arm. Their monthly reviews, based on findings by Conformity, enable their clients to set a higher bar for security and DevOps, as new initiatives are set.
Conformity provides CMD’s clients with greater visibility into their cloud infrastructure. By using a third-party audit, CMD presents clients unbiased results and maintains a consistently productive relationship as updates and implementations take place.
Using Conformity, CMD is able to run a single infrastructure security review, which covers several compliance standards. Time saved in the discovery process allows more time to focus on growth opportunities, without compromising on the critical regulatory standards their clients are held to.
