RETAIN CONTROL, REDUCE RISK. You own the AWS account. You control the AWS resources. Aside from read-only access to billing and utilization data, SMX requires no access into your AWS environment. Onboarding is as easy as accepting our invitation and running an AWS CloudFormation template to generate a read-only role. Once onboarded, SMX will immediately assess your security and governance posture.
COST OPTIMIZATION. Reducing cost is a key benefit of moving to the Cloud. SMX has invested in industry-leading tools to help you maximize return on your AWS investment. Customers have saved more than 50% on their AWS costs by leveraging the SMX Cloud Assured cost optimization service. This robust suite of tools helps you identify opportunities to leverage reserved and spot instances, eliminate unused infrastructure, resize underutilized resources, set budget alerts, and perform trend analysis.
IMPROVED PRICING AND TERMS. Get off the credit card. All AWS services are provided at the current AWS list rate or better. By partnering with SMX, you receive the benefits of our AWS volume tier pricing and discounts. SMX also extends Net 30 payment terms and provides flexible contracting options to meet the unique needs of each customer.
GOVERNANCE AND VISIBILITY. Managing Cloud resources can be challenging. SMX provides resources to help enhance user visibility and control of AWS costs, usage, security, utilization, and performance through advanced reporting. This improved transparency helps customers reduce risk, forecast cost and usage, and improve overall decision-making across your portfolio of AWS accounts. Our tools enable support of complex charge-back bills for different business units or departments as well as enterprise-wide roll-ups for a global view.
SECURITY MANAGEMENT. Security and compliance are always concerns for any organization. SMX helps you stay ahead of potential risks by comparing your AWS deployment against hundreds of industry-best practices. Examples include running CIS benchmark checks, identification of open ports, proper root account vaulting, excessive permissions, improper password policies, lack of security logging, and use of multi-factor authentication.
