Frederick, Md.-based Fugue has been focused on building a cloud operating system (OS) management layer that makes it possible for developers to construct security-compliant infrastructure in an automated manner, Jefferson said. Automating security controls is consistent with best practices to avoid the potential for human error, according to Jefferson.
Having Fugue provide a framework and tools to automate and manage the deployment of infrastructure is ideal in the public cloud, and beneficial to the company's ecosystem partners, according to Jefferson. Fugue's use of the software-defined data center to manage security infrastructure is efficient, easy to scale back, and can scan for policy violations such as a role or credential that shouldn't be used, he said.
