CloudSphere Cloud Governance Platform

The complexity of public cloud service offerings and the emphasis on new service velocity has resulted in increasingly complex environments with escalating costs and risks. The CloudSphere Cloud Governance Platform supports a number of important solutions for our customer base that span across all major public cloud providers to give a comprehensive view of the cloud environment. Our solutions provide a unique application level view and help establish the guardrails needed to plan effectively and maintain control in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Solutions are available for:

Cloud Migration Planning

Accelerate your cloud migration planning

CloudSphere’s automated tooling discovers and maps your simple to complex applications across hybrid environments without having to install agents. A key step in any migration plan begins with a current state analysis of the entire IT estate that shows your infrastructure, applications, and how those workloads are connected.

CloudSphere’s cloud migration planning solution gives you a comprehensive end-to-end view of your applications, no matter the complexity, to provide optimization and accuracy throughout the migration process.

Design a successful migration plan based on:

Application Dependencies: Agentlessly map all applications dependencies with software-to-software and compute communication streams.

Cloud Suitability: Understand what workloads are fit for cloud services based on a risk and complexity analysis.

Cloud Cost TCO: Compare cost for applications and infrastructure across AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

Right-Sizing Analysis: Accurately size your applications for their ideal cloud environment with performance, capacity, compute & availability in mind.

Cloud Cost Management

Visibility and policy-driven controls for cloud spending

Public cloud usage often starts with independent and distributed projects within business units, well outside the watchful eyes of the IT group. With a focus on getting new services running quickly and little visibility into actual cloud spend, we continue to see rampant overspending on public cloud services. Whether from selecting oversized resources, forgetting to turn off unneeded or idle resources, or poor planning around network and storage fees, the result is driving escalating costs and a lack of centralized control. Without visibility into cloud spending on a per department or a per project basis, it’s impossible to properly budget for cloud usage and tie cloud infrastructure spending to business outcomes.

CloudSphere solves this problem by providing visibility and policy-driven controls for cloud spending.

Set and track budgets by department, project, business unit or individual users.

Allow users to take corrective action from trend reports before getting hit with a surprise bill.

Configure alerts for immediate notification if budget thresholds are crossed.

Optimize cloud spending with continuous resource monitoring and rightsizing suggestions.

Cloud Security Posture Management

Public cloud users bear significant responsibilities in today’s shared security model

Public cloud users bear significant responsibilities in today’s shared security model. Power users at cloud-centric companies need self-service access to the cloud in order to maintain agility, but providing that access magnifies risk without security governance guard rails in place to prevent misconfigurations with significant security and compliance consequences for the business. Similarly, Identity & Access Governance is an often-overlooked area of public cloud controls. Problems like access sprawl and inconsistent policy frameworks across on-premises and cloud environments make enforcing a least-privilege security model exceedingly difficult in the cloud.

CloudSphere allows you to control cloud security risks and ensure compliance in complex hybrid and multi-cloud deployments with real-time visibility, continuous configuration monitoring and user controlled auto-remediation capabilities.

Many cloud adopters fail to consider the attack surface opened up through misconfiguration of cloud resources and human error. CloudSphere can significantly reduce security and compliance risks.

Minimize the attack surface in the cloud with a comprehensive set of security controls that monitor and control security status in real time.

Monitor compliance status against key industry standards, like CIS, PCI, HIPAA, SOC, NIST and others.

Remediate problems before they can be exploited with auto-remediation and assisted-remediation capabilities.

Track who has access to your most critical assets in the cloud and visualize access paths to gain insights into users and attached policies and permissions.

All of these monitors and alerts are available for multi-cloud environments and integrated with leading ticketing systems like ServiceNow and Jira help ensure critical issues are given the attention they need.

Azure Expert MSP Audit Readiness

CloudSphere can help you work through the certification audit

Cloud Service Providers are facing a growing need to differentiate themselves and find innovative new services to offer their clients. At the same time, they must ensure they retain existing clients by providing accurate billing data and tools that give them better insight into their cloud costs and security posture.

For Azure CSPs, the best way to differentiate is to achieve Azure Expert MSP status. While the program can seem complex, CloudSphere has helped customers ranging from small regional CSPs to international giants work through the cloud management requirements and certification audit. The CloudSphere MSP Solution delivers:

A proven solution to meet the Azure Expert MSP cloud management audit requirements.

Multi-cloud capabilities that provide a single pane of glass for managing services across multiple cloud providers.

Scalability to support even the largest Cloud Service Providers.

A simple path to offer additional value add recurring services like security and cost management.

CloudSphere also helps eliminate billing disputes and surprise bills with software that calculates mark-ups and discounts on a per client basis to show them actual costs, along with budget threshold alerts to provide clients visibility into spending trends.
