CloudCheckr is pretty powerful, and this week it got even prettier and more powerful.
We made some user interface enhancements to the CIS Benchmark Report to make it easier to sort through the dozens of checks provided. This is a good opportunity to remind users of this feature. The CIS or Center for Internet Security is a consortium of non-profits, educational institutions and security vendors that have created benchmarks to ensure compliance with standards like HIPAA, PCI and more. CloudCheckr tests your configuration against these agreed-upon checks and alerts you to any concerns.
Users love our Automation and Self-Healing capabilities. With many of our Best Practice Checks, you can select “Fix Now” and have the underlying issue corrected automatically. More recently we added Self-Healing capabilities. This means you can select “Yes Always Fix Now” and the next time CloudCheckr discovers the same issue, it can fix it, automatically, and notify you that the fix was made. This is a great way to stay ahead of hackers and make your life easier!
If you are a Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) for Azure or you need to generate invoices, we have added customization capabilities. You can convert between currencies and choose a custom date range for invoices for greater flexibility. CSPs will also appreciate a brand new report that helps them measure their budget versus actual cloud spend. While CloudCheckr can alert you when you go over a certain threshold, it’s nice to see, at a glance, where you stand for specific subscriptions.
