Stressed Man

We know your pain

You’re in a regulated industry...

HIPAA, GDPR, FDA regulations all increase the complexity required in your IT infrastructure. Technical violations and platform breaches can result in fines and lost business. Regulatory enforcement actions are increasing and the myriad of service and product offerings from cloud service providers grows every quarter. Failure to comply with regulatory requirements could lead to being found negligent if evidence otherwise isn’t available. But it doesn’t have to be so bleak...

We understand if you have some concerns

  • too expensive
    "this will cost us too much money"

    Hiring a senior level DevOps engineer to find these same issues would cost 10 times as much as an Kindly Ops assessment. The value of independent review includes broader perspective on regulatory hurdles and experience with which systems are most cost effective.

  • time consuming
    "it's not worth the time it will take"

    Compared to time to respond to enforcement actions and fines for violations and even possible time spent in court the assessment saves tremendous time. We are experts at bending technology to support people and often a more secure process ends up being most efficient for the business.

  • where do i start
    "it's hard to know where to get started"

    You’re the expert on your business and we are experts on compliant cloud infrastructure. We’ll guide you each step of the way, interview your team, and document it all in a report that includes prioritized and concrete next steps.

We can't work with you if...

You are building a software product and have not yet completed a Series A funding round or reached $1M in customer revenue.

You are running in a traditional on-premises data center rather than AWS or Google Cloud.

You want someone to checkbox your existing strategy without questioning architecture or risk tradeoffs.

You don’t have executive support to spend 10% of your annual development budget on compliance and security to actually follow up on recommendations.

...but don't delay

We know there are new AWS services released every year with revised guidance. There are new attacks happening all the time. Ignoring a misconfiguration could destroy your business. By acting now you may discover attacks that are already in progress or reveal gaps that leave you vulnerable. Strengthen your security posture and increase compliance evidence to get credit for the work you are already doing. Save money by getting an assessment instead of a fine.
