451 Research just released a new report highlighting some updates since their analysts last took a look at in 2019. Download the full report to get a detailed take on the updates.

Here's a deeper dive into some of the topics mentioned in the 451 Research report.

This reality brings obvious challenges around centralized visibility and control and less-obvious challenges around cross-training.

Support for Google Cloud Platform is on our roadmap for this year.

Compliance Jumpstarts

Our Compliance Jumpstarts for NIST 800-171 and CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark 1.2.0 deliver both comprehensive mapping of controls to capabilities and a library of pre-defined Cloud Rules to expedite standards achievement. We're releasing more NIST Jumpstarts in the coming months.

Partner Program Updates

Our services partners have established cloud consulting practices, and we're looking forward to offering a training program that targets the technical aspects of as well as best practices around implementation and rollout.

Integrating with solutions our customers are already using means more opportunities to streamline cloud ops. Our new ServiceNow integration is an example of identifying a common use case and need for many of our customers: connecting the service management request to the cloud provisioning step. Previously, we saw customers bridging this gap with manual steps and labor. Now, our customers can connect the ServiceNow request for new resources to follow-up actions in
