AHEAD Announces New Managed Cloud Service, CoPilot for AWS, at Re:Invent 2017
This article originally appeared on Business Wire. AHEAD, a leading provider of enterprise cloud solutions, announced today the release of its new managed service, CoPilot, which will monitor and optimize public cloud environments. The company officially unveiled CoPilot at AWS re:Invent 2017, as AWS will be the initial focus of the service (AHEAD is exhibiting at Booth #2122). While there is incredible momentum around public cloud adoption, enterprises often find that the combination of enthusiasm and lack of qualified staff lead to unintended negative consequences. These include spikes in billings from new resources being deployed across their businesses and configuration missteps that can leave companies exposed to potential data breaches. The CoPilot service delivers reports, dashboards, alerts and benchmarks, and integrates them with guidance from AHEAD cloud experts to provide actionable insights in three areas:
- Cost: controlling expenses across all public cloud accounts through analytics and cost projection analysis, alerts, and consolidated billing.
- Inventory: analyzing usage and provisioned resources, as well as daily configuration and environment reporting, to ensure accurate allotment of cloud resources.
- Security: performing 100-plus checks against CIS benchmarks and providing alerts for faster detection and remediation of security, compliance, and malware issues, including those related to PCI and HIPAA.
