Boosting Your AWS Security with Ease: Citadel's Continuous Control Monitoring & Compliance Reporting

Citadel is pleased to announce Continuous Control Monitoring & Compliance reporting, our next iteration available to all new and existing customers.

What's New:

Customers will have access to instant, up-to-date cloud compliance posture to measure each of their environments against the standards of their choice. The reports generate and display a score for each selected standard, providing the much needed visibility required to proactively respond to vulnerabilities. Businesses will quickly be able to identify how close or far they are from meeting standards, and then focus their attention on areas requiring improvement.

The tests include security best practice checks, aggregates alerts, and enables automated remediation. With real-time, actionable insights, customers can strengthen their AWS security controls and take a proactive approach to their AWS management.

By automating the continuous compliance, Citadel customers will enjoy the benefits of ensuring their environmental security controls are in line with compliance standards, such as PCI DSS, SOC 2, HIPAA, ISO 27001, AWS Well-Architected Framework, and CDR (Consumer Data Right), on an ongoing basis. This, in turn, uplifts their overall compliance posture, and reduces the overall audit costs, with very little manual intervention throughout. The new feature is now available for SOC 2, HIPAA, and AWS Well-Architected Framework (see image below), with the Citadel team working hard on expanding its capabilities to include the additional standards our customers seek. Watch this space for future updates.

Businesses operating outside of regulated industries may not be required to meet compliance, but can benefit by using relevant standards as a guideline nonetheless. Measuring your environments against these standards provides valuable insight into your security posture and gives you a goal to strive towards. Not only does high-level cloud security protect your business as a whole, but it also helps you gain customer and stakeholder trust, optmize your environment, mitigate risks, adopt a continuous compliance framework, stay audit ready, reduce costs, improve performance, and free up time and resources to focus on growing your business with ease.

“Our drive is to provide our customers the best cloud experience. This feature empowers users to easily verify their compliance posture and take action before it becomes an issue. We believe that prevention is always better than remediation.”
- Allan Denot (Co-founder and CTO )
