How Coalfire utilizes automation to secure cloud architecture and infrastructure as code
- Coalfire wanted to get proactive about securing their infrastructure as code (IaC) that was being used for reference architectures and within managed client environments.
- With Bridgecrew’s help, they were able to identify, prioritize, and remediate all CloudFormation and Terraform misconfigurations in their GitLab and GitHub repositories.
- The result was a 15% reduction in time-to-patch, 30% fewer alerts, and 50% fewer high severity events in production.
