Fugue, Inc., the company simplifying cloud operations and infrastructure enforcement, announced today general availability of Fugue for AWS GovCloud. By automating compliance validations with policy-as-code, Fugue offers advanced governance capabilities to help federal agencies increase speed to mission. With Fugue, agencies operating in the cloud can mitigate compliance risk, eliminate configuration drift, and expedite service delivery.
“Every government agency that scales out their cloud operations runs into governance and compliance challenges in the face of increasing system complexity. The result is wasted spending, increased risk, and agility loss,” said Josh Stella, Founder and CEO of Fugue. “Fugue streamlines compliance enforcement and eliminates the tradeoff between compliance and speed.”
“Traditionally, security concerns have not been considered early in the design process nor as an active component of operations, and this has slowed the pace of adoption and service delivery of new technologies and capabilities,” said Trigg Borgerson, Director Cloud Solutions at Berico Technologies, a leading provider of public sector cloud consulting services. “Fugue’s holistic approach makes DevSecOps a reality, transforming security and regulatory compliance into an innovation enabler by making it an integral part of the DevOps team from the very beginning.”
Fugue centralizes the management and compliance enforcement of multiple cloud environments across many AWS accounts, bringing control and visibility to cloud usage and operations. Fugue operates each cloud workload as a managed process, providing a concise, real-time, authoritative view of what is running and how it is configured. This eliminates the guesswork and orphaned infrastructure that can lead to wasteful spending, security vulnerabilities, and time-consuming audits. “Fugue serves as the operational source of truth and trust for the cloud,” Stella explained.
Fugue Product Highlights
Fugue is the industry’s first automated solution that compiles, configures, manages, monitors, and enforces AWS cloud infrastructure. This means Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) teams can quickly and proactively optimize cloud operations to ensure outstanding end-user experience. Fugue:
- Mitigates risk: Compliance and security rules—such as NIST SP 800-53—can be coded into language libraries (policy-as-code), ensuring that infrastructure changes comply with organizational policies and practices before changes are applied. Change plans can be included in approval processes, and all changes are logged for auditing purposes. Role-based access controls ensure the proper regulation of cloud resource use.
- Eliminates configuration drift: Fugue continuously enforces desired infrastructure state so teams can collaborate on running infrastructure safely without incurring the burdens of managing state locally and the associated risks of deployment failures and application downtimes.
- Enforces consistency: Cloud architects and DevOps teams can simplify and share infrastructure compositions, pattern libraries and best practices to ensure consistency across workloads and significantly reduce the time to configure infrastructure. Compliance teams can create policy-as-code libraries and share those with DevOps teams.
- Delivers fast replication of dev/test environments: DevOps teams and managed service providers (MSPs) can easily spin up and replicate development, test and staging environments; making environments quickly available to the right teams eliminates typical wait times that impede IT agility.
Fugue is ideal for federal agencies using AWS, providing the innovation agility that today’s fast-paced, software-driven IT operations demand while ensuring compliance is met at all stages of operations. Fugue’s support options help customers achieve rapid time-to-value and solve some of their most complex challenges of operating the cloud at scale.
Fugue is highly extensible and supports today’s cloud-based workloads, workflows and toolchains. With Fugue, organizations can increase the speed of innovation delivery, eliminate manual infrastructure maintenance burdens, and ensure IT standards are continuously met—while delivering operational success necessary for effective digital transformation.
