Read or listen to this SaltStack case study with Zach and Johnny Cook, Cyxtera service reliability engineer to learn how they do it:

SaltStack forms the basis of an audit, remote execution, configuration management, patch, and baseline enforcement suite for your Cloud network. It replaces several different legacy tools with a single command and control layer that allows you to automatically roll out new security policies and quickly react to any new security threats. Problem scoping, mitigation, and audit is done in few hours rather than weeks across your network.

SaltStack SecOps delivers full-service, closed-loop automation for compliance and security. Finally, security and operations teams can work together to define compliance policy, scan all systems against it, detect issues, and actively remediate them—all from a single platform.

SaltStack SecOps is capable of automatically remediating policy violations, detected anywhere in your systems. It is also capable of creating jobs for review and approval before changes are carried out. SaltStack SecOps integrates with third-party systems such as ServiceNow for change tracking and reporting.
