Cloudhouse Technologies, a London, UK-based provider of application compatibility packaging solutions, acquired UpGuard Core, from third-party risk and attack surface management platform UpGuard Inc.
UpGuard Core will now be known as Cloudhouse Guardian, joining Cloudhouse’s Application Compatibility Packaging solution to offer customers capabilities to find, manage and resolve infrastructure and application compatibility, configuration and compliance issues.
Cloudhouse Guardian provides instant visibility of an entire IT infrastructure and automates compliance and configuration drift management.
Cloudhouse can therefore now offer customers the opportunity to use this new capability to find out what they have in their estate, identify what’s out of date and non-compliant and automatically achieve compliance by aligning with best practice configuration. Customers can then address incompatible applications using Cloudhouse’s core packaging solution, with Cloudhouse Guardian continuing to monitor changes that have happened to trap configuration drift.
Cloudhouse Guardian is already being used by major enterprises globally including: The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), NASA, AT&T and Rackspace to monitor and manage their IT infrastructure.
Founded in 2010 by CEO Mat Clothier and used by hundreds of enterprises across all sectors globally, Cloudhouse frees enterprises from running unsupported Windows and Citrix platforms by making otherwise incompatible applications run on the newest platforms – whether they run on-premises or in the cloud.
Cloudhouse is the Preferred Partner globally for the AWS End of Support Migration Programme for Windows Servers (EMP), as well as a migration partner for Microsoft’s Windows Virtual Desktop. It is used by a number of Government departments as well as organizations across all sectors including the National Australia Bank, Experian, Royal Mail and Transport for London.
