Prancer Cloud Validation Framework Integrates with Open Policy Agent (OPA) Query Language for Cloud Compliance
SAN DIEGO December 17, 2019 – Prancer, a company that provides clients with a framework to validate resources pre deployment and post deployment on the cloud, is excited to announce a new integration with Open Policy Agent (OPA) Query Language for Cloud Compliance. The team at Prancer is constantly working to create new solutions that meet the ever-evolving needs of today’s businesses. This latest integration expands the capabilities of the Prancer cloud validation framework and allows you to turn policy into code so that you can easily make decisions, protect resources and handle complex security issues.
OPA is an open source tool that allows users to better manage policy enforcement. It uses a declarative language to turn policy into code and APIs in order to control policy decision making through your software. You can input a query and OPA will quickly evaluate it against existing policies and provide a compliant policy decision. This allows users to easily control access to resources, decide what window of time during the day resources can be accessed, dictate which clusters workloads are sent to and much more. OPA can be used in complex compliance scenarios to ensure maximum security. Businesses can empower IT and security teams while also streamlining the decision-making process.
Integrating OPA into the Prancer cloud validation framework makes it possible to write compliance queries in the OPA Rego Language. In turn, this enhances the type of queries security specialists can write in Prancer in order to better manage complex scenarios and decision making. Security operators across any industry can easily create compliance queries based on the Rego language. For businesses that are constantly working to improve and update security and compliance, this integration marks a new evolution that will support ongoing efforts. Integrating OPA and allowing businesses to easily turn language queries into searchable code makes the cloud even safer while reducing the workload on security teams.
Prancer is dedicated to providing businesses with the tools they need to safely and easily move to the could and take full advantage of this technology. By providing a pre-deployment and post deployment multi-cloud validation framework, Prancer allows users to get the most out of custom scripts and frameworks, web-based interfaces and manual provisioning engines without compromising security. Businesses can validate implementation and easily track changes to your cloud infrastructure as it evolves over time. Adding OPA capabilities to these existing tools means that Prancer users will continue to be at the forefront of new technology and solutions that support better business.
Prancer was created with the goal of providing any size business with a cloud validation framework that enables cloud governance and multi-cloud validation. By understanding the needs of today’s clients, creating innovative solutions and collaborating through open source networks, we are working to make cloud technology more secure and versatile.
