The challenge

People.ai relies heavily on Terraform and AWS for its cloud infrastructure. With over 10,000 resources in their infrastructure, gaining visibility and reducing security risks was proving to be difficult and time-consuming.

As they constantly evolved their configured resources and scaled their cloud infrastructure footprint, they wanted to stay on top of best practices in keeping their environments secure.

They turned to Bridgecrew to give them extra support and help them get a head start on securing their public cloud infrastructure.

The solution

After reviewing multiple products, People.ai turned to Bridgecrew.

Bridgecrew provides People.ai with automation tools for AWS misconfiguration detection and remediations that are delivered as code. By leveraging existing AWS services such as Cloudtrail and Cloudformation along with its unique automation platform, Birdgecrew streamlines cloud security throughout the development lifecycle. Bridgecrew enables People.ai’s security and DevOps engineers to quickly identify and remediate infrastructure issues in AWS as well as in Terraform.

Getting started with the platform was quick and easy, and Bridgecrew’s team of security engineers also provided immediate and actionable guidance.

“With just a Terraform deployment in our accounts, the Bridgecrew platform immediately began reading our configuration and identifying issues. The Bridgecrew team then created an actionable roadmap to compliance. We were finally able to take real action and remediate the issues. We went from loads of red to all green in less than two months.”
