Stacklet Platform delivers frictionless governance that accelerates cloud adoption in large-scale environments.

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stacklet, developers of the industry-first cloud governance as code platform based on the open source Cloud Custodian project, today announced it has been recognized in the 2022 Gartner Cool Vendors™ in Cloud Computing report. We think, This recognition builds on its continued momentum, including the recently announced Stacklet SaaS Platform which makes it easier and frictionless for organizations to shift to governance as code model.

Innovating efficiently and securely in the cloud requires a paradigm shift from traditional approaches to governance. Governance as code is a new paradigm that allows cloud engineering, security, and FinOps teams to quickly understand, codify, and automate cloud governance for a frictionless experience for development teams and rapid cloud adoption.

Cloud Custodian, an open source project and part of Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for cloud governance as code with millions of downloads occurring globally each month. Stacklet Platforms extends Cloud Custodian with intelligent management capabilities like governance insights, real-time asset inventory, out-of-the-box policy packs, and advanced communications to make it easier for DevSecOps and FinOps teams to automate and enforce governance policies at scale.
