AWS with CloudCheckr Built-in

Organizations migrate to AWS to achieve their goals for scale, simplicity, and cost savings. However, along the way, users may struggle with the complex and often time-consuming process of operationalizing integrated solutions in a multi-account environment.

To support a seamless deployment, AWS Built-in solutions are integrated with AWS native services in an automated deployment package. Third-party software with the AWS Built-in designation now has all the power of AWS foundational services packaged into a single offering that can be automatically deployed based on AWS best practices to deliver peace of mind and a smooth cloud journey.

Using modularized code from AWS, CloudCheckr with AWS Built-in automatically deploys the CloudCheckr solution into the customer’s environment and configures AWS services in a single motion.  This reduces the time and complexity required for integration, while increasing security and monitoring capabilities, thereby helping customers to drive realized business value from AWS even faster.
