Get Started Quickly

One of the biggest hurdles we’ve seen organizations encounter while trying to adopt a policy-as-code solution is the steep learning curve involved. With your teams already working at peak capacity, learning new languages, implementing new tools, and owning areas that are mission-critical without the right support isn’t something to be taken lightly.

A misconfiguration can give you and your organization a false sense of security, in the most literal sense, causing disruption in reputation and regulatory compliance. Imagine setting a configuration to “false”, instead of true. This can happen for many reasons, but unbeknownst to you, it could be the difference between a secure environment or an exposed one.  

We all know some form of IT Security must be implemented. It’s also something you can’t afford to get wrong. If many of us agree with those statements, then why is security always such an afterthought? Integrating security with cloud-native may seem troublesome and difficult, because the truth is, it’s complicated, and many are not yet up to speed.

At Magalix, a core tenet is to onboard and integrate with existing infrastructure as painlessly as possible.
With a single command to connect a Kubernetes Cluster, you can immediately understand your security posture with predefined Policies, and begin resolving security violations in Production within minutes, instead of spending days trying to get a policy engine to run in Development with 0 policies.

Policy-as-Code: The Magalix Advantage

The most frequently asked question we get  is “How many policies does Magalix offer?” The 2nd most frequent question is “What kind of policies?” The reason these are the two most frequently asked questions is obvious. People are looking for a policy-as-code solution that comes prepackaged with tons of policies, and an easy way to understand the state of each.

How Many Built-in Policies Does Magalix Offer?

Magalix comes shipped with over 100 Policies and Templates. Instead of combing the Internet, adopting, adapting, and testing open source policies to fit your needs, we’ve leveraged testimonials from the Cloud-Native community, experiences from our world-class SRE team, and most importantly feedback from customers like you to build an ever-growing array of useful and interesting policies.

What are the Types of Policies?

Magalix Library of High Quality Policies

We write each of our Policies from scratch. Each Policy is then rigorously battled tested in our pre-production and production environments, across multiple public cloud providers giving you the assurance that Policies are doing what they are designed to do. We have multiple CI/CD pipelines for Policy development using the same modern automation tools most of you are already using because we are DevSecOps at heart.

With Magalix, achieving DevSecOps isn’t as difficult as you may have been led to believe. Interested in learning more about how to start resolving violations in minutes?  Schedule a demo.
