The Value of Policy as Code

Most organizations’ approach to regulatory compliance is mainly reactive, with development, IT operations, and security teams conducting manual scans and fixes.

Policy as code, or the practice of applying software engineering principles to the development, deployment, and operation of infrastructure to automatically ensure and enforce ongoing regulatory compliance, helps companies break free from department silos and reactive processes.

Taking a policy as code and model-driven automation approach allows your company to become proactive by focusing on predictability, efficiency, and scalability.

With policy as code, achieve continuous compliance with less overhead and manual work. Benefits include:

  • Eliminated development, IT operations, and security bottlenecks
  • Improved efficiency by removing friction from the customer value stream
  • A scalable foundation for the digital future
