Proactively manage and reduce AWS cloud risk

Stax aligns to your organization's technology risk management framework.

Proactive and reactive risk controls work together to reduce risk

Companies in the cloud face an ongoing challenge: how to protect critical infrastructure and customer data while still allowing teams to deliver at pace? Stax allows for safe processes without impacting delivery velocity using automated patterns offering a high level of security and lowering the impact of human error. Guardrails also help govern what teams can access and the actions they can perform, in line with best practices. Stax also allows businesses to establish continuous monitoring for risk items, called Rules, which alert your team when a change impacts your risk posture.

Achieve compliance standards

Confidently maintain adherence to relevant industry risk and compliance standards like PCI, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) standards, the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark, and the AWS Well-Architected Framework. Standards can be targeted to either your entire organization or to relevant resources. When standards are updated, so is Stax, with full versioning capability. Learn about Rule Bundles.

Fix issues fast with real-time alerts

Stax offers continuous monitoring across all risk items, alerting you in near real-time when your resources begin to fail compliance checks, enabling rapid issue resolution and minimizing risk exposure. Make changes to your AWS resources, knowing you will be alerted immediately if your risk posture is impacted. Real-time Rule Alerts incur no extra cost and are a standard feature of Stax.

Customize risk and compliance checks to target what matters

Just because it’s not in the CIS standard, it doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Create custom risk and compliance checks targeting items that are particularly impactful for your risk posture. Set up Targeted Rule Alerts so when issues need addressing, the right people receive the right alerts in the right way: by email, Slack, Microsoft Teams or via a webhook.

FAQs

What is risk management and compliance in cloud security?

Cloud security risk management is a three-part process. The first part involves the identification of all potential risks that arise from your organization’s activities in the Cloud. The second part involves the classification of these risks according to their severity. Once all risks have been identified and classified, you can move on to the third part of the process — addressing the risks identified with measures designed to mitigate them in the most effective manner possible.
