New York, NY — June 7, 2017 — Logicworks, a leading cloud automation and managed services provider, today announced that it has achieved Security Competency status in the AWS Partner Network. This designation recognizes that Logicworks successfully passed a 3rd party audit of its security practices and has demonstrated a history of customer success in building and maintaining AWS environments for customers that demand the highest standards of security and governance.
“As organizations continue to migrate mission-critical workloads to AWS, they need to understand the new benefits and challenges of operating on public cloud and deploy a comprehensive security architecture,” says Matthew Sharp, CISO of Logicworks. “Our new status as an an AWS Partner Network (APN) member having achieved Security Competency highlights Logicworks’ extensive experience designing and managing secure solutions with AWS for companies that demand the highest security standards, including customers in healthcare, financial services, and the public sector.”
Logicworks helps companies at any stage of cloud adoption to protect critical data and implement a mature cloud security operations practice. Logicworks’ Cloud Assessment Service provides companies with a comprehensive evaluation of their existing on-premises and cloud-based workloads in order to prepare for migration to AWS. As a Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and an audited AWS Managed Service Partner, Logicworks helps companies architect and build secure solutions, and continuously protect data with 24×7 monitoring, technical support, and automated security controls.
Logicworks’ AWS Certified Solutions Architects and DevOps Engineers base all solutions on AWS Security by Design framework, which emphasizes the need for building security into every solution from the ground up rather than just relying on standard security tools. This includes the creation of secure infrastructure templates (AWS CloudFormation), the use of configuration management tools to create consistent, repeatable controls that are continuously enforced, and the use of automated infrastructure as part of a CI/CD pipeline.
“Cyber security assumes a well-architected and well-operated infrastructure, which requires both automated controls and human expertise,” says Sharp. “Logicworks helps you architect a fully-automated system that continuously and proactively enforces security configurations, then provides access to a Security Operations Center (SOC) that monitors your environment 24x7x365. This level of transparency and control is what makes Logicworks’ security solutions so attractive to companies that need to meet security and compliance obligations.”
AWS Competency Status is only awarded to AWS Partner Network (APN) members, like Logicworks, that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas. Logicworks is also a member of the AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program and AWS Public Sector Partner Program. Logicworks has been an APN Premier Consulting Partner since 2015.
