IT infrastructure are the components required to operate IT environments, like networks, virtual machines or containers, an operating system, hardware, data storage, etc…. As companies build out different deployment environments with infrastructure configurations, they must maintain the different environments, replicate them, and update them. The management of infrastructure, often automated to some extent, is referred to as Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
The company Gold Fig Labs helps growing companies better understand their deployed infrastructure beyond the basic IaC principles. Gold Fig Labs developed 2 main tools to deliver the clearest view of infrastructure security and compliance. Their tool Checkup provides periodic security and best practices reports for AWS accounts. The report details specific, actionable, and relevant advice to improve security posture. Their other tool, Introspector, is a unique security and auditing tool that provides in-depth analysis of larger cloud deployments with complex regulatory requirements and custom internal policies.
In this episode we talk with Vikrum Nijjar and Greg Soltis. Vikrum is co-founder and CEO at Gold Fig Labs. He was previously an angel investor with Angel and special advisor for Google’s onboarding acquisitions, compliance, and security. Greg is co-founder and CTO at Gold Fig Labs. Previously he was a senior software engineer at Google and a software engineer at Firebase. We discuss the principles of IaC, how Gold Fig Labs helps customers go beyond what IaC intends, and the complexity of cloud infrastructure security and regulatory compliance.
