Cloud Security and Compliance
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.

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.
Reduce complexity with centralized cloud governance
Challenge – Heterogeneous organizational structures and lack of development resources
Cloud providers such as AWS, Azure or GCP pursue different concepts for the administration of accounts, users, access structures and costs. With a multi-cloud strategy, this heterogeneity leads to large administrative overheads: Internal organisational structures must be transferred to the respective concepts and administrative processes adapted accordingly. Often the necessary governance structures and specific platform know-how are lacking, which leads to uncontrollable shadow IT.
Solution – Central definition of organizational structures for all cloud platforms
meshcloud integrates all relevant cloud platforms out-of-the-box and supports the entire cloud project lifecycle: tenant (de-)provisioning, tenant configuration, user (de-)provisioning, resources (de-)provisioning. The organization is set up centrally on the platform and transferred to the connected platforms. New cloud platforms can be integrated easily.
