Our Engagement Process

Scout subscriptions are a recurring testing model. During each test, our consultants follow as set of procedures that build upon the previous tests. Our process is as follows:

  1. Scan: Our CloudScout solution scans the configurations of your cloud account using a limited audit role.
  2. Audit: The configurations are then compared against a large range of audit rules, including the CIS Benchmarks plus additional rules we have developed.
  3. Review: The results are reviewed by an expert to make certain they are correct and complete.
  4. Report: The final results are compiled into a report, including a description of each finding and recommended steps to resolve.
