Innovating efficiently and securely in the cloud requires a paradigm shift from traditional approaches to governance. Governance as code is a new paradigm that allows cloud engineering, security, and FinOps teams to quickly understand, codify, and automate cloud governance for a frictionless experience for development teams and rapid cloud adoption.

Cloud Custodian, an open source project and part of Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for cloud governance as code with millions of downloads occurring globally each month. Stacklet Platformsextends Cloud Custodian with intelligent management capabilities like governance insights, real-time asset inventory, out-of-the-box policy packs, and advanced communications to make it easier for DevSecOps and FinOps teams to automate and enforce governance policies at scale.

"We believe being named a Cool Vendor by Gartner is a strong recognition of how governance as code and Stacklet can help organizations scale operations in the cloud," said Travis Stanfield, co-founder, and CEO, of Stacklet. "We are looking forward to continuing our momentum and helping our customers control costs and be secure across multiple cloud platforms in a way that doesn't hinder developer velocity."
