Manufacturer Plans a Secure-by-Design Cloud Transformation


An automotive industry manufacturer embarking on a multiyear journey to migrate on-premises data centers to the cloud found the advice about needed security initiatives and solutions from multiple vendors confusing and conflicting. The client sought a trusted security advisor to help secure their cloud migration.

Converge Cybersecurity was engaged early to provide consultation and advice for cloud resiliency and security.


Converge Cybersecurity participated in the four-month architectural design process with the cloud service provider and a third-party provisioning team to ensure security was built into the new cloud environment. Converge conducted consulting conversations around cloud security frameworks, reviewed documentation and diagrams for accuracy, and offered recommendations and guidance for cloud infrastructure. When cloud access hardware was added to the project, our Advanced Testing team performed penetration testing on the device to ensure security. After the cloud environment was built, Converge conducted a cloud security assessment. Account administration, access, and tools, as well as user permissions, configuration, and vulnerabilities, were evaluated. The client received a detailed report of the findings and recommended remediation.


The client is confident that the build of their cloud-hosted data centers includes a secure mindset. The client was delighted with Converge’s actions on their behalf in working with multiple vendors, and plans are underway for Converge to support the client’s onboarding of cloud services into their SIEM environment.
