SaltStack is unique in offering event-driven automation for cloud and container control, infrastructure and application configuration management, DevOps and security compliance solutions for enterprise IT and web-scale data center environments. SaltStack is the most scalable, flexible and efficient systems management platform available today and provides substantially more value and functionality compared to legacy alternatives.

SaltStack for SecOps defines the new standard for compliance enforcement:

  • Define: Build custom policies with industry-standard compliance profiles, such as CIS and DISA STIGS, then apply them automatically across your digital footprint.
  • Detect: Run continuous, item-level policy checks to locate non-compliant systems or applications anywhere in your environment.
  • Enforce: Use autonomous policy enforcement to fix violations automatically. Or kick off a remediation workflow so your teams can flag and prioritize issue resolution.

With SaltStack Enterprise you can:

  • Orchestrate and automate smarter: Use event-driven automation to transform complex systems into a central IT nervous system that senses, learns, and reacts to important events anywhere in your environment.
  • Manage everything with a single platform: Manage and automate your entire hybrid-cloud environment, whether it’s on-prem, in the cloud, across the network, or all of the above. SaltStack’s flexible architecture supports all major operating systems. New cloud instances and virtual machines are automatically integrated into SaltStack for full configuration and ongoing management.
  • Increase IT efficiency: IT teams can use SaltStack’s intuitive user interface to perform complex functions like configuration management and orchestration. And, because jobs in SaltStack can be built, stored, and scheduled, IT teams spend less time and fewer resources executing routine functions.

SaltStack Enterprise is powered by Salt, the popular open source remote execution and configuration management platform. Contact us for SaltStack Enterprise support, training and professional services options.
