Observability, Verification & Audit
Security teams have no way of knowing whether engineers and developers have implemented the necessary controls, nor if the implementation is correct. They require an independent and provable record of what is actually happening in the cloud, in order to attest that their enterprise is in compliance.
Concourse provides GRC and security teams with an independent and provable source of truth regarding cloud compliance. It allows them to demonstrate conclusively the organization’s state of compliance at any moment, current or historical.
Enterprises have had to retool to deliver application releases quickly. Yet each release is still manually reviewed for compliance. This slows releases down by weeks or months. Security teams are swamped, unable to keep up with the backlog.
Concourse changes the paradigm by allowing security teams to review policies-as-code once, and automatically test every release as part of the CI/CD pipeline. Developers receive remediation guidance. The enterprise is protected, yet can innovate at cloud scale and speed.
Continuous Control Verification
Controls may be implemented during the application build process, but often changes are made at runtime. Bugs, failures, and configuration changes (whether inadvertent or intentional) must be identified and corrected.
Concourse continuously monitors all cloud usage, identifying any drift from compliance. It does so without any changes to the application, nor the need for installation of agents. Enterprises know their risk and compliance posture with certainty, at every point in time.
Automatic Testing of Infrastructure-as-Code
Cloud configuration files have become increasingly complex and highly nested. It is difficult or impossible for humans to reliably review and test. The result is significant risk of data loss, compliance breach, and service interruption.
Concourse automatically tests every infrastructure-as-code file to prove it is compliance with enterprise policies. Enterprises can be assured they have a reliable and verifiable understanding of their risk posture as they deploy even the most complex applications to cloud.
