ScaleSec - Our Approach

Our Approach

The rare mix of deep expertise and experience you need to realize the cloud’s benefits.

ScaleSec approaches client engagements with equal emphasis on cloud, security, compliance, and code. All four disciplines are necessary for a successful cloud program.


The workload has evolved. Designs that worked in the data center need rethinking and retooling for the cloud. With the increasing pace of new features and services, we invest heavily and constantly in learning and relearning cloud technologies.


Security is different in the cloud, from building applications to responding to incidents. And responsibility is shared with your cloud provider. Adding security after apps are built results in expensive rework and development delays.


Security and privacy regulations are evolving faster than ever. Customers managing sensitive data must meet stringent requirements to make the sale. To avoid audit fumbles or fines we develop modern, cloud-aware compliance programs.


Production cloud apps should be deployed and managed as code for increased consistency, reproducibility, scalability, and cost savings. Code lets you secure cloud assets before they exist for a huge risk reduction.

Our work, and your cloud project, typically begin in one of three service domains:

Cloud Security and Compliance

To meet exhaustive regulatory requirements or industry standards, we work with your team to develop or update a security program.

Reach new markets, new customers, new geographies, and overcome customer concerns by attaining and demonstrating the completeness and rigor of your security program.

Cloud Adoption and Modernization

Create a tailored cloud operating model to address your most critical needs at scale, including cost, reliability, and security.

Coming up short on your spend commitment could mean writing a big check to your cloud provider. Plan and manage your cloud use to quickly ship your product, grow your business, and reduce your costs by creating automated and reusable templates to accelerate your development cycle.

Cloud Capabilities and Engineering

Led by a multidisciplinary team of cloud and cloud security experts, we undertake critical projects to improve your security capabilities.

We will increase the fidelity of your core capabilities, reducing risk and ensuring security of your cloud with security monitoring, incident response, network security, security posture management, and vulnerability management.
