What the customer says...

“While our infrastructure environment and user’s base were constantly growing, the need to have a centralized monitoring solution together with a clean and effective way to control our AWS users accounts and permission was getting critical. Together with ARHS Spikeseed’s expertise and skills, we were able to properly improve our means of monitoring over our different environments and handle a smooth transition of all our AWS users to a new login and security process. Those two aspects are now pretty well clear and ready to keep growing and evolving while keeping a proper quality and control over the security aspects.” Benoit Olbrechts, Head of Software & Infrastructure at Alpega
