About the Client

Our customer is a Swiss based multi-national healthcare organization that creates innovative medicines and diagnostic tests. With their combined strength in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, they are pioneer and the front runner in driving personalized healthcare.

Business needs

Being in a highly regulated industry, our customers’ primary requirement is to have their IT infrastructure mandated in such a way, their entire cloud resources abide to the IT infrastructure guidelines dictated by industry regulations. Hence it is always very crucial for our customer to be continuously compliant and maintain a non-vulnerable infrastructure.

8K Miles Solution/Approach

8K Miles is already engaged with this organization as their AWS Managed Services partner. Being part of their AWS journey from the beginning and having vast knowledge in AWS products and services in addition to the domain expertise we hold, helped us to understand the business challenge of our customer precisely. We implemented vulnerability assessment using Qualys to ensure the instances continue to remain hardened. The assessment is done on all the infrastructure every quarter and tickets are created and assigned to the concerned owner to fix and close the vulnerability. Our continuous compliance solutions enabled automated monitoring and reporting of non-compliant infrastructure.

Business Benefits

Our solution helped our customer to,

  • Consistently maintain AWS resources in a compliant manner
  • Ensure that non-vulnerable software (e.g.) applications, dependencies, libraries are not installed/deployed on AWS resources
