Policy as Code
Detect and remediate policy violations across cloud native infrastructure to reduce risk
Define Policy as Code for Your Cloud Native Infrastructure
As you provision and manage cloud native infrastructure, it is important to ensure that security best practices and compliance requirements are observed without slowing down development. Accurics provides 1500+ policies across 10+ standards such as CIS Benchmarks, SOC 2, PCI DSS, HIPAA, NYDFS, and GDPR so that you can enable policy guardrails in minutes. You can also define custom policies based on your individual needs.
Enforce Throughout the Development Lifecycle
Once you define your policies, you can monitor infrastructure throughout its lifecycle. During development, Accurics scans Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to detect violations. Accurics also integrates with CI/CD tools to detect violations and block risky builds. The same policies can also be applied at runtime to continuously monitor cloud environments for risky changes.

Resolve Violations with Remediation as Code
Automatically detecting and flagging violations throughout the lifecycle can create alert fatigue. Policy as code is only effective when coupled with remediation as code. Accurics generates code to resolve issues and checks them into your repository as a pull request. You simply need to review the request and merge it into your branch to accept the change.
"As organizations embrace immutable infrastructure, manual changes to production cloud deployments will become untenable. The approach of governing infrastructure as code, and subsequently reconciling any posture drift between cloud deployments and code, will enable immutable security for immutable infrastructure.”
