Turbot (https://turbothq.com | AWS Advanced Technology Partner) automates your cloud ecosystem while elevating your team. Turbot provides enterprise guardrails for cloud infrastructure which allows Enterprises to achieve agility, ensure control, and accelerate best practices through continuous compliance & adherence of centrally defined policies across a multi-account AWS model. Turbot automates and enforces a combination of preventive and detective controls that provide guardrails at the Networking, Infrastructure, Operating System, Database, and Application layers while giving Application Teams direct access and management of their own AWS environment.
