Fugue and New Light Technologies Partner to Better Secure the Public Cloud
WASHINGTON, July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — New Light Technologies Inc. (NLT) announces a strategic partnership with Fugue to deliver public cloud configuration, drift detection, active drift enforcement (e.g., self-healing infrastructure), and security control gap analysis for NLT’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure clientele. The partnership extends Fugue’s capabilities to all of NLT’s Azure and AWS clients, strengthening NLT’s Cloud Service Provider (CSP) and Managed Service Offerings (MSO).
Fugue rounds out a set of best-of-industry tools and practices chosen by NLT to protect and provide the greatest value to each customer. In addition to the capabilities that Fugue offers, each NLT cloud customer partner is ensured:
- 100% infrastructure-as-code buildout of their environment
- 3rd-party uptime monitoring and SLA enforcement
- A core security model built from NIST, HIPAA, and GDPR controls
“By using Fugue, we can multiply the impact of each of our engineers. Instead of having to write custom scripts, alarms, and notifications, we simply turn on Fugue and get alerted if any of our environments deviate in any way from our last build baseline,” said Dave Williams, Cloud Architect with NLT; “Plus, for certain production accounts, we enable active self-healing infrastructure so that when an anomaly is found, the environment is automatically rolled back to the desired configuration.”
“We’re excited to partner with New Light Technologies to use Fugue’s cloud infrastructure baselining technologies to keep NLT’s cloud environments secure and compliant with policy,” said Phillip Merrick, CEO of Fugue. “NLT is delivering cutting edge cloud-based geospatial applications and managed services, and with Fugue, NLT can keep customer data and applications secure in a highly efficient and scalable manner.”
