Fugue Customers Enforce Compliance on AWS to Eliminate Misconfiguration Risks and Policy Violations

Fugue, the company automating compliance and security in the cloud, today announced two new customer case studies. GlobalGiving and Whisker Labs are now using Fugue’s solution to automate policy enforcement in cloud infrastructure—effectively eliminating risks due to misconfigurations and policy violations.

“Risks due to security and compliance violations are huge challenges for organizations using the cloud,” said Josh Stella, CEO of Fugue. “Fugue’s automated compliance enforcement enables organizations like GlobalGiving and Whisker Labs to detect and remediate these violations immediately to protect customers and their data.”

GlobalGiving is the largest crowdfunding community worldwide connecting nonprofits, donors, and companies. It used Fugue to migrate its PCI-regulated workloads to AWS and increase agility and innovation, while maintaining continuous compliance. Fugue’s automated monitoring and policy enforcement help GlobalGiving strengthen partner trust, simplify cloud operational processes, and free up engineering resources. View its case study.

“Fugue makes it possible to demonstrate to our PCI auditors that no configuration drift has happened in our cloud environments,” said Justin Rupp, Senior Systems Architect at GlobalGiving.

Another Fugue customer, Whisker Labs, develops advanced IoT home intelligence technologies and works with electric utilities to successfully reduce energy usage during peak load times. Described in its case study, the company uses Fugue’s automated remediation to continuously protect production infrastructure and prevent configuration and policy violations. Whisker Labs can ensure enforcement of controls such as access control and encryption of personally identifiable information (PII) to build customer confidence that sensitive data is not at risk.

“The Fugue solution has helped us with SOC 2 Type 1 compliance and will help ensure we remain compliant as we transition to SOC 2 Type 2,” said Eric Weller, Vice President of Engineering at Whisker Labs.

The cloud compliance and security challenges that organizations like GlobalGiving and Whisker Labs are addressing with Fugue are widespread. According to Neil MacDonald and Greg Young of Gartner, “Through 2020, 80% of cloud breaches will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not cloud provider vulnerabilities.”
