Spanugo Launches with General Release of its Innovative Automated Security Assurance Platform (ASAP)

Spanugo, a worldwide leader in Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for the enterprise hybrid cloud, today announced the company has officially launched and is releasing its Automated Security Assurance Platform (ASAP), a breakthrough technology for Hybrid Cloud Security. ASAP takes a unique approach to validating security posture that is comprehensive, continuous and consistent. Automating all aspects of security assurance, including discovery, assessment, analysis, monitoring and remediation, ASAP is delivered as a SaaS offering that easily integrates with existing security infrastructure and is built to scale in a hybrid cloud environment. The solution is targeted at Enterprises looking to address hybrid cloud related security and compliance hygiene issues, and partners offering protection as a managed service.

Co-founded by technology veteran R. "Doc" Vaidhyanathan, who serves as chief product officer, and CEO Peter Jensen, Spanugo has attracted investment from Ideaspring Capital, The Fabric and others who embrace its vision of continuous security and compliance with automated validations.

"We're really excited to enter the enterprise security marketplace with an entirely unique solution that achieves continuous security and compliance without sacrificing speed and agility," said Jensen. "CIOs and CISOs no longer have to rely on manual audits to assure their security postures are meeting security policies. ASAP automates security control validation and prioritization across both cloud and on-premise infrastructure. Unlike the fragmented and incomplete solutions for policy validation that are commonplace among enterprises today, ASAP unifies and automates every facet of security assurance, including discovery of IT resources and configurations."

  • Breach prevention by protecting against misconfigurations and security policy hygiene issues
  • Agentless deployment with Full Stack Security support for the Hybrid Cloud
  • Cybersecurity Posture Management for the Hybrid Cloud
  • Complete visibility into policy implementation and identification of control gaps
  • Reduced risk with continuous, comprehensive policy validation and complete forensics on control failures
