Challenge

NiuPay maintains a variety of cloud-native, mission-critical systems for Public Sector customers. To achieve the high levels of security and compliance required to deliver such workloads, automation and auditability are valued above subjective decision making (i.e., manual processes by exception). So how can NiuPay meet these pressing concerns in the most efficient way possible?

Solution

NiuPay & nOps started their journey while NiuPay was in the midst of becoming the first organization in Papua New Guinea to achieve AWS APN Partner Status with a “Reviewed by AWS” validation. This process required NiuPay to pass the AWS Well-Architected Review (WAR) as well as the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR).

During the very first AWS FTR conducted, NiuPay received official approvals with zero recommendations or improvements required. This was, in large part, due to how nOps handles automated discovery of any gaps in compliance and the way in which remediation steps are presented.

NiuPay’s fantastic experience during the AWS APN Partner journey means that nOps has now become a permanent member of NiuPay’s DevSecOps pipeline. nOps has allowed NiuPay to further automate its rapid-cycle DevSecOps pipeline by providing team members with the tools to easily validate and iterate against multiple industry security standards, best practices, and cost control measures. nOps provides this information in an almost real-time fashion across our entire AWS Organisation account, directly into the hands of Niupay developers, managers, and executives.

We will also provide ongoing:

  • Compliance against multiple industry security standards and best practices such as  the AWS WAR, SOC2, and CIS benchmark;
  • Actionable insight into all AWS resources;
  • Real-time notifications of non-conformance against pre-defined constraints; and
  • Risk management, monitoring, and tracking of changes within NiuPay’s infrastructure.

“I could tell immediately that nOps was built from the ground-up by a team that lives and breathes the AWS ecosystem and thrives on solving the complex business challenge of disseminating relevant information to multiple levels of business stakeholders.”


“Whether it’s engineering-level configuration of Infrastructure-as-Code, or management-level cost control policy, nOps provides the various teams at NiuPay with the actionable insight required to make business and engineering decisions quickly and effectively.”


“nOps has brought together thousands of critical metrics in what can only be described as meticulously crafted information architecture. You’re only ever a few clicks away from finding the information you need.”
