Control Access to Landing Zones

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🏒 CoreImplement automated policies to steer application teams to appropriate cloud platforms and landing zones based on metadata about the application team.

Cloud Foundation teams strive to help application teams move to the cloud smoothly without neglecting compliance and security. To meet organizational compliance demands, Application teams usually have to meet a set of requirements before accessing the cloud.

When it comes to controlling access to something, one needs to ask β€œwho” gets access and to β€œwhat”. Application teams (β€œwho”) need to work within Landing Zones like Lift & Shift Landing Zone or Container Platform Landing Zone when building their application. Landing Zones are therefore a natural fit for the β€œwhat” in controlling access.

Likvid Bank application team are following a Guided Cloud Onboarding that helps to decide on a Landing Zone and leads through necessary regulatory steps.

Application teams can only start consuming EU Landing Zones after the data privacy declaration has been filled out and archived.
