SecOps refers to the combination of efforts from security and operations teams to monitor the security posture of cloud assets, assess their risks, and protect them. As your enterprise scales and adopts cost-effective cloud computing models, security operations will play a foundational role in mitigating risks across your business environment. This is becoming increasingly important amid the growing rate of cyberattacks, like ransomware, targeting businesses of all sizes.
CoreStack SecOps is a solution offering designed to help keep your cloud assets secure and compliant. It accomplishes this through cloud-native tools and custom APIs, including autonomous security operations, unified visibility into threats and vulnerabilities, and compliance assessments – applied across your entire multi-cloud inventory.
Some key features and benefits of CoreStack SecOps include:
- Automated processes that can be run across the entire multi-cloud inventory to achieve continuous cloud compliance with evolving industry and regulatory standards.
- Unified visibility into security threats and vulnerabilities, and the ability to remediate them.
- Compliance assessments you can run using CoreStack's unique Abstracted Cloud Compliance Control (AC3) engine for industry standards, such as ISO, FedRAMP, NIST, HIPAA, PCI DSS, CIS Azure, CIS AWS, and AWS Well-Architected Framework.

CoreStack SecOps is built around a SecOps lifecycle we developed using established best practices. This lifecycle is comprised of three phases, illustrated in the graphic below.
The core functionality of the CoreStack SecOps product offering is designed to align to the main phases of this lifecycle: Security, Compliance, and Operations. By repeating the steps you take as you move through the SecOps lifecycle, you start to get a “flywheel effect,” which allows you to iterate faster and mature as you progress through the crawl, walk, and run stages of adopting SecOps practices.
SecOps lifecycle phases:
Security phase: Build a robust security posture for all cloud resources by identifying security violations and finding suitable recommendations for remediation.
Compliance phase: Further strengthen your compliance posture by identifying compliance requirements, designing policies, and monitoring and executing against those policies.
Operations phase: Proactively and reactively identify and resolve security risks flagged by security tools by gaining threat and vulnerability insights, achieving real-time remediation using cloud-native templates, and leveraging automation.
Now that you have a better understanding of CoreStack SecOps and the SecOps lifecycle, you're ready to get started with this solution offering.
