AWS Cloud Security Architecture Assessment

The first step to a secure digital transformation.


Secure cloud adoption is achievable.

Regardless of industry, the benefits of cloud computing are gaining the attention of every type of organization. The question is how. Businesses are scrambling to define the steps necessary to safely migrate their assets to the cloud – with security remaining the number one challenge. Assessing current technology and workloads for cloud compatibility, taking an inventory of all sanctioned and unsanctioned applications and orchestrating an enterprise-wide cybersecurity effort to eliminate siloes in the organization, add to the challenge.


Establishing a minimum set of baseline controls in your cloud environment will give you a solid foundation to develop a mature cloud security program. The Optiv AWS Cloud Security Architecture Assessment facilitates a forum between your key stakeholders and our industry experts to identify existing challenges, define business goals, maturity level and outcomes and build an actionable roadmap to enable program success. Through our assessment of your current environment and needs, we gather intelligence that gives you additional information to make informed decisions of what you need to accomplish over the short and long term. By applying a holistic approach that accounts for security across the stack and harmonizing siloes in the organization, we create the efficiency and agility necessary for you to proactively secure and operationalize your business.
