Compliance & Security

in Multi-Cloud Environments

What is a Landing Zone?

A landing zone describes a securely configured cloud environment. It defines permissible project scopes, e.g. for dev or production environments. Policies for the connected cloud platforms can be set and selected during project creation. The landing zones are implemented using cloud-native tools such as Azure Blueprints or AWS Cloud Formation Templates.

Security by default for all clouds

  • Individual definition of policies
  • Consistent implementation of policies by Landing Zones
  • Best-Practice Landing Zones
  • Continuous Inspection of the Landing Zones
  • Roll-out of Landing Zone Updates
  • Auditable Access Logs (→IAM)
  • Integrated approval workflows, e.g. for role changes (→IAM)

Secure Cloud Configuration:
How Landing Zones work in meshcloud

Platform Operator Olivia can define landing zones for different project types.

When creating a meshProject, Team Lead Tom selects the appropriate landing zone.

The meshcloud platform configures the cloud tenants (→Tenant Management) according to the selected policies and continuously monitors their compliance.

Cloud security and compliance for all your cloud projects

Challenge – Lack of know-how for the implementation of compliance guidelines

In most cases, development teams are responsible for the implementation of regulations and policies in consultation with compliance and security teams. As a result, policies are implemented differently and are subject to a complex and resource-intensive review process. This makes it difficult to use new technologies, and valuable development resources are lost. In addition, compliance with policies is difficult to control in the long term, especially in multi-cloud environments.

Solution - Uniform security level for all cloud accounts

With meshcloud, policies can easily be rolled out across clouds via landing zones. This enables a consistent implementation of secure operating concepts. An example: Limit cloud regions by default to ensure data storage in Germany or Europe or exclude non-GDPR-compliant services from use.
