A Growing Business Required Robust Technology
As Zava’s client base began to grow, they needed to expand their capabilities while continuing to provide security and privacy to patients. Anything that increased complexity would hurt productivity. Smoother management of users and resources was a must.
Changing regulations were also providing a challenge. With the European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) on the horizon, Zava needed to handle regulatory compliance while building a clean audit trail.
Using Cloud Technology to Manage Growth
Zava uses sandboxed AWS accounts for development and testing, but this made billing confusing. Edrans deployed AWS Organizations to consolidate billing and enable better oversight with AWS Budgets.
Using Google Suite as an Identity Provider (IdP), Edrans created a single sign-on (SSO) solution to manage user access. Security is managed across environments from one location.
Edrans created automatic creation and deployment of AWS sandbox accounts linked to the SSO solution and centralized access control.
Centralized Billing and Service Automation
Automated service management brought powerful benefits. Now every Zava DevOps and developer works in a sandboxed AWS account with a fixed monthly budget, all monitored from a central location.
Easy access is provided through Google Suite accounts and a simple-to-use command line utility. Development is streamlined and automated.
This new process saves time and effort while making sure that cloud expenditures don’t spiral out of control. In addition, secure development environments help protect customer data.
