Cloud infrastructure allows businesses to share resources and data on demand. To accommodate this developing system, companies create security programs to maintain protection over company information.
Established in 2013, DivvyCloud develops innovative technology to automate and optimize cloud infrastructure. As a privately held company headquartered in Arlington, VA, IT consists of 12 employees.
DivvyCloud aims to simplify cloud use in multiple sized organizations. “As more and more companies move their business applications and data to the cloud, complex and nontransparent cloud environments are making cloud implementations more expensive, difficult to secure, and harder to manage,” suggests Peter Scott, COO, DivvyCloud.
In recognition of cloud security challenges, DivvyCloud launched BotFactory to automatically secure cloud infrastructure in a contemporary and timely manner.
Launched in late 2016, BotFactory continuously scans public cloud accounts for various security and compliance issues. The program works quickly to allow simple, apparent results for every customer.
Within minutes, customers receive a visible account of their cloud infrastructure’s health. Efficient and timely processing maintains order and lowers the rate of future attacking fields.
In May 2016, DivvyCloud created its flagship BotFactory cloud automation and management platform. The hosted version was released six months later to allow new users the ability to test a single cloud deployment for compliance across 100 disparate factors at no charge.
The updated program takes steps to attract organizations through automation benefits and favored procedures. “BotFactory is designed to assist Amazon Web Services users to close security gaps, save money, and ensure compliance with best practices,” explains Scott.
Specific to the user, BotFactory is designed to cost effectively service individual company cloud policies. “Users can employ a virtual bot army to take autonomous, real-time action to re-mediate common problems based on best practices and user-defined policies,” says Scott.
The solution acts quickly to ensure cloud infrastructure security. Based upon personalized cloud infrastructures, the virtual bot army acts to ensure the best possible results.
DivvyCloud’s newly released bots defend cloud accounts from common challenges; therefore preventing future issues for a better cloud experience. Through the use of bots, BotFactory develops a multi-functioning security system.
Bots ensure steadiness within an organization’s cloud infrastructure. Interchangeable components customized to fit specific cloud policy requirements help organizations control cloud accounts. To understand cloud complexities, BotFactory’s design supports customers at an entry level.
The software effectively helps small- and medium-sized organizations. Within larger enterprises, the software is a good candidate for security, DevOps, and IT. The program enables businesses to fix non-compliant cloud resources through an automated bot army.
BotFactory’s use of automation is developed to enable those with limited cloud experience or IT resources to effectively, rapidly, and efficiently manage. More directly, automation can result in lowering costs, improving security, and easier cloud management in their cloud, according to DivvyCloud.
Since its release, the software has stayed true to its simple, cost effective approach. “BotFactory provides users with an initial entry point to experience the benefits of cloud automation and management without having to make a large initial investment,” says Scott.
BotFactory addresses frequent cloud problems such as network security, shadow IT, downtime, and data protection. It auto detects and removes non compliant security rules, eliminates orphan resources, and turns off development testing at night. Together, these strategic methods reduce attacking surfaces and costs—producing 50 percent in monthly savings.
BotFactory is available as a free, hosted version and starting at $999/month for on-premise.
DivvyCloud’s software limits complications at approved cloud regions and enforces proper encryption of databases. In turn, this maintains security in the data field and saves time and money.
In the changing world of technology, DivvyCloud expands its portfolio with BotFactory’s intelligence. As users add new filters, actions, and integrations from experience, BotFactory approaches new risks, opportunities, and complex challenges. As an adaptable program dedicated to lowering costs and providing wide user availability, BotFactory continues to develop into the future. SW
