Design & Review

Architect (or adjust) your cloud environment with security in mind

Like the rest of the Carbide Platform, Carbide Cloud Monitoring uses our DRIVE (Design, Review, Implement, Validate, and Evolve) methodology to support you throughout your security journey.

In the Design & Review stage, Carbide Cloud Monitoring provides tools to design and optimize your cloud environment, including architectural recommendations for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and security recommendations for both AWS & Microsoft Azure.

Cloud Security Gap Analysis
AWS Well-Architected Reviews*

Quickly generate an assessment of your environment against the pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework. 

With 90% coverage for the Security Pillar (and partial coverage for other pillars), Carbide Cloud Monitoring offers security recommendations and highlights opportunities to improve performance or reduce costs through more efficient architecture. 

*Only available for AWS (obviously)

Cloud Security Gap Analysis

Using both automated and on-demand assessments, you can quickly assess your cloud security posture, even across multiple cloud environments (within and across AWS and Azure) and gain an understanding of your security maturity level across six critical areas: 

  • Logging & Monitoring
  • Identity & Access Management
  • Infrastructure Security
  • Data Protection & Encryption
  • Backup & Resiliency
  • Cost and Usage

This analysis takes into account more than 400 security checks and best practices with details into each error, and remediation recommendations for AWS environments.

Carbide Cloud Monitoring’s threat management dashboard ensures you sustain your security posture by making it simple to maintain vigilance over your cloud environments.

Threat Management Dashboard

Set customer and auditor concerns to rest

Once you’ve acted on the recommendations identified on your dashboard and in your reports, it’s time for the Validation stage. All your work leading up to this has been captured and will be reflected in easy-to-read reports, making it simple to prove your security posture to an auditor or assessor. 

Compliance Reports
Compliance Reports

Capture your security posture across all your AWS and Azure cloud environments (e.g. development, testing, production) with both templated and customized reports.

You’ll understand your posture against controls such as PCI DSS, SOC 2, NIST 800-171, HIPAA, GDPR, and more (with even more being added to the tool all the time), with enough detail to satisfy any auditor.
