Software-Defined Operations.

Security Guardrails for Your Cloud.

You have several DevOps teams working on many projects simultaneously in different environments, and this causes friction and slows down development.

With GlobalDots, you can safely enable self-service & direct AWS, Azure & GCP access from all your applications & developers.

Software Defined Operations for the enterprise cloud with automated guardrails that ensure your cloud infrastructure is secure, compliant, scalable and cost optimized, without relying on a central IT team.

NATIVE CLOUD AGILITY, WITH GUARDRAILS

To enforce policy and identity management, software defined infrastructure (compute, storage, networking and services) offers a vast and powerful chest of tools, and security professionals need new methods and tooling to secure workloads in the cloud. GlobalDots software is unique as it not only detects configurations that are out of compliance, but it automatically remediates them too. In the old data center model, physical access to infrastructure created a need for human, process-based controls to protect assets.  These barriers have been eliminated in the cloud model - innovative organizations are using Software Defined Operations to replace manual processes (e.g. approval, ticketing, deployment) with controlled automation to foster the new pace of delivery.

 

With our solution you can  
automatically manage access, permissions, policies and best practices 
across all your AWS, Azure & GCP accounts. 

 

With this model, maintaining governance and consistency is key to an organizations overall success.

FULLY AUTOMATED GUARDRAILS FOR AGILITY AND CONTROL

GlobalDots’ automated guardrails are the cornerstone technology for Software Defined Operations, enabling consistent, repeatable operations management. GlobalDots ensures that governance to policy is consistently applied, enabling continuous compliance.  Traditionally, organizations apply the “Report, Analyze, React” model, GlobalDots eliminates the need for slow and costly manual processes.  GlobalDots applies real-time guardrails to allow teams to achieve agility in the cloud, while ensuring your cloud is secure, compliant, scalable, and cost-optimized – always.  

Guardrails utilize a robust hierarchical policy engine that gives the enterprise control at higher levels of the hierarchy, and the flexibility to create exceptions for workloads on an account by account basis (or even at the resource level). This resolves much of the friction that is caused by “one-size fits all” models that are typical of cookie-cutter approaches to cloud security.

AUTOMATED GUARDRAILS MAXIMIZE VALUE FROM APP ISOLATION

One of the key “new ways of working” in public cloud is the principle of application isolation, which is best achieved through a well-architected and controlled multi-account strategy.  It is recommended to deploy separate production and non-production accounts for each business service.  For large enterprises (especially in regulated industries), this isolation can be difficult to manage at scale without GlobalDots' automation and guardrails.  By doing so, the organization gains extraordinary benefits.

GlobalDots helps your cloud team be more efficient, giving it the tooling and automation necessary to manage the complexity of implementing the best practice of a multi-account strategy and allowing SecOps and DevOps teams to focus on higher-value activities.  This shift to being a trusted advisor allows technologists to become more embedded in the business, being advocates for business solutions expediting time to value for new services and products.

SECURITY GUARDRAILS FOR MULTI-ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT

Developing applications collaboratively creates unique challenges for security teams.  Business partners faced with weeks or months of project delays often resort to starting application development offsite with their vendor to “accelerate” the project. Late in the project they discover that key enterprise controls were not considered part of the requirements, causing delays and rework.

GlobalDots allows you to turn this paradigm upside down: Utilizing native cloud services (e.g. the AWS Console and APIs) in conjunction with GlobalDots’ enterprise controls, the system integrator or third parties can be granted access to a cloud development account before the ink is dry on their statement of work. 

This account will be fully managed by automated guardrails configured to meet enterprise policies. GlobalDots' guardrails ensure that the combined project team develops the application under full enterprise policy management, with federated authentication and access to core corporate resources (e.g. AD, DNS, NTP, Version Control, Databases & APIs) so that the Development environment truly matches Production.

With GlobalDots, Application teams use single sign in to the AWS Console, Azure Portal and Google Cloud Console to manage resources, and develop applications using AWS, Azure & GCP APIs. Leverage the entire Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure & Google Cloud Platform ecosystem of knowledge and tools, benefiting immediately from every cloud innovation and improvement.

No abstractions, just direct access within automated policy guardrails.

GUARDRAIL AND POLICY ENFORCEMENT

 

dots-png

 

Software Defined Operations for the enterprise cloud with automated guardrails that ensure your cloud infrastructure is secure, compliant, scalable and cost optimized. We help to address the most common cloud challenges faced by large enterprises: 

LACK OF RESOURCES / EXPERTISE

Out of the Box policies and controls to automate AWS, Azure, and GCP, and helps companies to align their cloud environment to best practices.  
We are a member of your cloud teams and allows cloud teams to remain agile while focusing on business value rather than technical debt.

SECURITY

We provide hundreds of out of the box guardrails to help secure cloud environments automatically. 

We help to design the least privilege identity model, and further allows time-based access to elevated roles.

MANAGING CLOUD SPEND

This technology can automate start and stop scheduling to ensure that environments are online when needed, allows companies to set budgets and track performance, and cleanup volumes, logs, and snapshots automatically.

COMPLIANCE

Corporate policies are one thing; the enforcement of them in large enterprises where hundreds of staff are managing cloud environments is quite another.  

We help you ensure that everything in your cloud environment is in continuous compliance with the defined policies through our detective controls and automated corrective actions.  GlobalDots also maps features to external frameworks such as NIST, HIPAA, PCI, and many others.

GOVERNANCE / CONTROL

Application teams can have self-service to the AWS, Azure, and GCP console or API, while this works behind the scenes to enforce continuous governance to policies.  

You benefit from over 1000 guardrails and helps security and compliance teams maintain control while Application and DevOps teams obtain the agility that they need.

 

START INSTANTLY, SCALE INDEFINITELY
