The compliance engine within Kion provides a very easy rule language as well as cloud platform agnostic remediations that don't require deploying Lambda functions or similar services. Kion has over 6,000 checks across many popular compliance regimes, including CIS, PCI DSS, NIST, ISO 27001, SOC 2, FedRAMP, HIPAA, and more. Many of our checks include automatic remediation steps that leverage your configuration files. As a result, you don't need to write code but, rather, you can leverage simple YAML configuration files and comment in a line or two to remediate across findings and across accounts.

Suspended Checks

These checks are vital, but an added feature of Kion is the ability to monitor and self-diagnose when these checks become suspended. Suspended checks are compliance checks that have some configuration error and can lead to blind spots in your security and compliance posture. To make these as easy to remediate as possible, Kion highlights these checks in red on the compliance dashboard and distills them all into a single list. From the list, you can select an individual suspended check and see the exact misconfiguration that caused the suspension of the compliance check. From here, you can quickly take action to remediate the issue and get the suspended check back online. Once they have been remediated, you can select the "Resume Suspended" at the top of the "Compliance Checks" page to reinitiate the formerly suspended compliance checks.

Kion'scontinuous compliance features make it easy to ensure you are adhering to compliance and regulatory requirements by placing guardrails that adhere to many popular frameworks, the ability to write custom compliance checks specific to unique organizational needs, and identifying and automatically remediating violations in real-time.
