FULTON, Md. — (BUSINESS WIRE) —, the leading cloud enablement solution provider, today announced its rebrand to Kion. This rebranding comes with a major update to its platform, Kion 3.0. These new features and user enhancements go beyond baseline cloud governance and management, enabling organizations to move farther, faster on their cloud journey and attain the full value of the cloud.

“Kion delivers customers several new features and a fresh user experience.”

Kion was created to remove obstacles, streamline processes, and reduce complexities within cloud environments by providing greater control, visibility, confidence, and insights to inform impactful decisions. Many of the tools on the market today can manage some of the financial and security aspects of an organization’s cloud landscape, but struggle to fully integrate these capabilities and enable users to achieve complete cloud benefits. Kion is the first and only solution that brings together both cloud governance and cloud management capabilities into a single platform. Organizations who use Kion can accelerate their journey in the cloud, without risking their budget or security.

“We’re thrilled to announce our transition to Kion. We’ve entered into an unprecedented era of cloud use with an ever-growing number of cloud providers and services. But, there are still major roadblocks to realizing full cloud benefits. We aim to help our customers go beyond taming the cloud to enabling full transformations in their business. Building on our success as, Kion is a trusted ally that helps companies and federal agencies properly navigate and evolve with the cloud, rather than in spite of it,” said Brian Price, CEO and Co-Founder of Kion. “Today, we offer a complete solution that ensures our customers are empowered to do what they need to do, not stuck doing repetitive management and inefficient governance tasks that hold back the innovation potential of their organization.”

Kion has undergone a number of upgrades to enhance user experience and allow organizations to take advantage of the speed and innovation offered by the cloud.

  • Visibility into reserved instances (RIs): Kion helps organizations save money by ensuring RIs don’t go underutilized or expire without someone noticing. This gives increased visibility into data utilization across the organization’s hierarchy.
  • Expanded Google Cloud support: Kion makes it even easier to integrate and manage the Google Cloud environment with enhanced Google Cloud project creation automation.
  • Enhanced account wizard: Kion now includes wizard functionality to make it easier to create and manage new accounts, subscriptions, and projects across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.
  • Streamlined cloud federation: Organizations can now use Kion to leverage existing solutions, such as Ping and Okta, to ensure non-disruptive developer access and maximum control for administrators.

“Kion delivers customers several new features and a fresh user experience,” said Joseph Spurrier, CTO and Co-Founder of Kion. “While this version is a continuation of the platform — our core pillars remain Automation and Orchestration, Financial Management, and Continuous Compliance — it is the foundation for something new. Kion 3.0 will increase users' operational margins and ROI on cloud investments, allowing them to focus on, and achieve their business objectives.”

The rebranding and updated features follow Kion’s recent Series A funding announcement, where it saw $9.5 million secured for the expansion of its sales, marketing, and engineering teams to bring enhanced cloud enablement capabilities to market. To learn more about Kion, please visit
