For over ten years, 38North has helped AWS users take secure advantage of the cloud to power modern business. Our success in helping AWS-centric clients continuously improve their cloud security and compliance has established 38North as one of the premier AWS Partner Network (APN) partners. Building on 38North’s APN foundation, I’m pleased to announce that 38North is now a trusted partner in the Authority-to-Operate (ATO) on AWS Program.
To achieve this distinction, 38North underwent a comprehensive review by AWS to ensure we met their exacting standards. We also had to prove our reputation as a premier provider of cloud security advisory, by providing case studies and customer testimonials that showcased our ability to use AWS services to help customers achieve their security and compliance goals.
Proven AWS Security Advisory and Engineering Experience
Our senior advisory team led many of the first AWS-centric FedRAMP and DoD CC SRG assessment and consulting engagements. We have since expanded to help our global compliance base comply with US and international security compliance requirements.
Our heritage can be traced back to supporting US federal government agencies meet FISMA compliance requirements. Before FedRAMP was established, our advisors were hard at work addressing the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and the 800 series of Special Publication (SPs)
Backed by this experience, 38North solves complex compliance challenges for global cloud service providers. While relevant experience is our main differentiator, we are also committed to supporting our hyperscale partners through a continuous learning curriculum for our advisors. In the case of AWS, our advisors are required to attain AWS Certified Solutions Architect and/or AWS Certified Security – Specialty certifications.
As a trusted AWS partner, 38North also has extended reach into AWS for assistance when needed, especially on those little quirks we often see with new services, hybrid deployments and integration with corporate and third-party systems. If you’re a customer of 38North you are already benefiting from this knowledge along with our customer-focused team of advisors in the ATO process.
What’s Next for 38North and AWS as Partners
We will continue to support important initiatives such as the ATO on AWS program as our capabilities grow, while staying current on the latest changes and trends shifting the cloud security compliance landscape.
And please do keep an eye out for us at upcoming AWS events such as AWS re:Invent. Reach out to us and we’ll put you in direct contact with one of our Senior Advisors to discuss your cybersecurity requirements. We are standing by to help you take secure advantage of AWS to improve security and compliance.
