CloudCheckr Now Enables the Public Cloud to Go Back in Time with New Audit Solution --- SnapBack

CloudCheckr, the comprehensive cloud management platform for cloud cost optimization, security, and compliance, revealed a new way for modern enterprises, service providers, and public sector organizations, to peer back in time. Announced at the annual AWS re:Invent conference, CloudCheckr SnapBack provides a snapshot-in-time view of an entire cloud infrastructure, utilizing up to seven years of customer data.

Available now in the CloudCheckr platform, SnapBack technology changes a customer's view of their cloud infrastructure to a specific point in time in the past. In particular, this historical view of cost, security, and compliance allow large enterprises and service providers to view comparisons over a long period of time, access a visual audit trail of changes to their infrastructure, and assess their security stance. Data presented through SnapBack is frozen-in-time and not editable by any user or administrator.

As enterprises and service providers migrate workloads to the cloud as part of their digital transformation strategy, they utilize purpose-built cloud management platforms such as CloudCheckr to build confidence in public cloud migration and accelerate adoption of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). The largest and most advanced cloud computing customers use CloudCheckr because features such as security, governance, compliance, automation, cost optimization, and billing help them utilize that infrastructure quickly and at a large scale. The addition of SnapBack technology further extends this confidence.

"Our customers told us they wanted the ability to keep their cost, security, and compliance data for a very long period of time," said Jeff Valentine, Chief Product Officer of CloudCheckr. "We offer our Ultimate customers up to 7 years of data retention, and now with SnapBack, they can access historical data easily inside our user interface."

SnapBack is included as a free feature in the CloudCheckr Ultimate Edition and is available for demonstration at the Amazon Web Services re:Invent conference in Expo Hall booth 1440 or sign up for a demo at
