Security and Architecture Audit

With years of experience and countless successful projects in production, we know what it takes to design and build efficient, scalable and secure Cloud Native applications. Colibri Digital has worked with clients in some of the most security conscious industry verticals, including Banking, High-tech Manufacturing and Energy. This experience makes us ideally placed to perform an assessment of your Cloud Architecture from both a design and security perspective.

As certified AWS and Azure partners, we've been rigorously assessed by both Amazon and Microsoft giving our customers complete peace of mind. We know that some organisations are pessimistic about moving their data and applications to the cloud and have used our experience of engagements like this to develop our unique Security and Architecture audit product. Combining our experience gained from tens of successful engagements, we know what it takes to get an application over the line, past internal and external security reviews, auditors, regulators and penetration tests.

Our Approach

In partnership with Amazon, we've developed a five pillared approach to assessing architectural and security excellence:

1. Operational Excellence

Run and monitor systems and deliver continuous changes and improvements:

  • Infrastructure defined as code
  • Everything is immutable
  • Make small, reversible changes
  • Anticipate failure and heal automatically
  • Log, monitor and alert in real time

2. Performance & Efficiency

Effectively and efficiently use computing resources in accordance with system requirements. Respond dynamically and automatically to change:

  • Democratize advanced technologies
  • Deploy globally
  • Leverage cloud native architectures, like serverless
  • Experiment often

3. Reliability

  • Test recovery procedure
  • Automatically recover from failure
  • Scale automatically
  • Automate change management

4. Security

Protect information, systems and assets without impeding business value:

  • Implement a strong identity foundation
  • Ensure traceability of all requests
  • Implement a layered security model
  • Automate all security controls
  • Encrypt everything, everywhere, always
  • Plan for security events

5. Cost Optimisation

Optimize the use of resources:

  • Adopt a consumption based model
  • Tag and allocate expenditure to cost centers
  • Leverage managed services to reduce operational overheads
