ANNOUNCEMENT — Stackery Expands Serverless Security and Continuous Delivery Capabilities

Team Stackery

Today, Stackery is announcing enhanced security and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) capabilities that enable teams to automate delivery best practices from laptop to production. With additional audit capabilities, scoped IAM permissions, and secrets management for automated verification and deployment pipelines, Stackery helps teams scale serverless usage and accelerate modernization and innovation projects.

"Serverless is a great way for organizations to rapidly deliver customer value and innovation, without wasting effort on unnecessary, costly, and complex infrastructure," said Stackery CEO Tim Zonca. "By introducing additional security and CI/CD features, the Stackery platform brings cloud teams the agility of serverless while making enterprise-grade security consistent and automatic."

The Speed of Serverless with Enterprise Security and Governance

Organizations are looking for infrastructure solutions that address speed, scale, cost, and security. According to O'Reilly's 2019 Serverless Survey, 40% of respondents whose organizations had adopted serverless had done so in order to reduce operational costs and automate scaling. However, the remaining 60% reported security as a barrier to adoption.

By streamlining the approach to security throughout the lifecycle, Stackery's secure SaaS platform makes it possible for any business designing, developing, and delivering modern applications to enhance productivity, while ensuring that their workloads are compliant and Well Architected from end-to-end. In addition, the Stackery platform helps enterprise customers cut cloud costs by up to 70% and drive a 60x faster release cycle.

By automating and visualizing serverless architecture, Stackery further frees teams to focus on business logic to deliver value and innovate rapidly, securely and at scale.
