Be best practice. Experiment, learn & automate. Accelerate cloud experience with central experts supporting independent application teams.

Native cloud agility, with Guardrails

Safely enable self-service & direct AWS access for all your applications & developers.

Self-service, direct console access

With Turbot, Application teams use single sign in to the AWS Console to manage resources, and develop applications using AWS APIs.

Leverage the entire Amazon Web Services ecosystem of knowledge and tools, benefiting immediately from every cloud innovation and improvement.

No abstractions, just direct access within automated policy guardrails.

Guardrails to optimize cloud configuration & setup

  • Separate AWS accounts: Separate apps into different cloud accounts for easier management & control.
  • User & Permission management: LDAP & SAML integration with predefined policies. Simple cross account user management.
  • Audit trail & Log management: Ensure audit logging of all actions, with named users and protection of records.
  • Data protection: Automatic encryption, backup, rotation and deletion protection for all data.
  • Monitoring: Automatic setup and removal of monitoring with centralized alarms & ticketing.
  • Credential management: Management of credentials, with reminders and automatic rotation.
  • Network & firewall management: Simple, predefined security group rules, automatically managed across accounts.
  • Whitelist Services, AMIs & DB engines: Control which services, server images and databases can be used in accounts.

Manage hundreds of cloud accounts

Turbot automatically manages access, permissions, policies and best practices across all your AWS accounts.

Empower independent app teams

  • Isolate apps into separate AWS accounts.
  • Simple, strong governance boundary.
  • Protect resources, network & data.
  • Delegate control of cost & change.

Enterprise controls, reimagined for cloud.

Automated controls for dynamic infrastructure with self-service & shared responsibility.

Full-stack Identity, Access & Permissions

Turbot's simple, yet powerful, model for identity and access is implemented right through from single sign on with LDAP & SAML to detailed AWS mappings.

A simple user interface, and a clearly defined hierarchy of trust allows your users to make simple, safe decisions about permissions and leave the complex, heavy lifting of policy management to Turbot.

Application & network isolation only possible with the cloud

Cloud applications and DevOps teams dynamically manage their own infrastructure. Traditional models with shared resources, flat network topologies and central change teams do not translate smoothly to this model.

Turbot separates each application environment into it's own AWS account creating isolation at the IAM, change, network, resource and data levels. Safely segregated, your teams are free to manage application infrastructure within automated, centrally managed policy guardrails.

Powerful Policy Engine

Hierarchy of controls

Simple, and flexible definition of policy controls at the Cluster, Account or Resource level.

Enforce, or Recommend

Enforce enterprise policies, recommend defaults, manage exceptions.

Predefined best practices

Best practice policies are provided by Turbot, safely accelerating cloud adoption.

Be best practice. Experiment, learn & automate.

Accelerate cloud experience with central experts supporting independent application teams.

Centralized support, access & policy control.

  • Central access to all cloud accounts & resources.
  • Support & monitor independent app teams.
  • Define & deploy policies across accounts.
  • Learn, share & automate best practices.
  • View & report on whole environment.

Intelligent automation, detection & repair.

  • Create S3 bucket: its policy is set.
  • Change server: security groups checked.
  • Stop server: monitoring is removed.
  • Start DB: monitoring is added.
  • Delete DB: snapshots are protected.
  • User leaves: account is disabled.
  • Start unencrypted Redshift: it's stopped.
  • & many, many more.

Experiment safely. Accelerate experience.
