What is Kloudle?

Kloudle is a Digital Assets Security Automation Platform for SREs and DevOps. When integrated with your Cloud or SaaS provider, Kloudle takes periodic security snapshots and provides complete security contextual visibility that allows you to make informed decisions about your infrastructure, the assets and their various configurations.

Kloudle collects metadata about the resources and analyzes them to identify misconfigurations and using a massive research powered knowledgebase, identifies what would go wrong if these misconfigurations were exploited and what you can do to fix them.

As part of making sure the lives of SREs and DevOps become easier, Kloudle offers the ability to create “rules” that allow a user to take automated actions against a baseline. These automated actions, which we call Security Processes, allow users to configure a series of steps that kick in when custom events occur to ensure the security of the cloud and SaaS platform being monitored.
