As you all update your OSes, applications, websites and containers adding in security and doing security monitoring, are you wondering if this is enough? Do you stay up late at night worrying if you have everything setup to be secure but you haven't tried a couple of new policies or tools because it was too hard or took to long to try it out?
What everyone needs is a sandbox to build your infrastructure rapidly, and try it out for yourself so you can get some sleep. To help as this sleep aid, take a look at some of our solutions such as Quali's CloudShell and Cypherpath.
These tools allow you to spin up production versions of your network, cloud or other IT infrastructure, provision and automate deploying it so you can do the what ifs and validations of your environment.
