Key features of CloudGate

Onboarding process for your cloud-based solution

The CloudGate onboarding process checks aspects of information security, data protection, and compliance for a variety of use cases, be it entire IaaS platforms or individual SaaS solutions. This process facilitates the identification and assessment of cloud risks. CloudGate supports your company in this with automated workflows as well as predefined and easily customizable checklists. Use cases can be managed and kept compliant during onboarding and throughout the entire lifecycle.

Compliance & revision security

Use cases are inspected using predefined checklists. As a customer, you also have the option to store your own checklists. microfin provides entensive check catalogues, e.g. BSI C5:2020, as well checklists especially relevant for banks and insurance companies, including EIOPA, VAG, MaGo, VAIT, EBA, KW, MaRisk and BAIT. There are regularly updated by microfin so that you are always up-to-date.

CloudGate also ensures a complete history of use case processing. The individual testing and release activities are continuously logged for each role. All use cases and reports can be exported at any time. Recurring test tasks can be assigned a reminder function and are always available in the cockpit/dashboard.

Risk management

Risk analyses with predefined checklists allow an easy yet thorough identification of risks. Customers can easily adapt the dimensions and classes of the risk matrix to their own risk management. Identified risks are backed up with mitigation measures, the implementation of which is tracked over time.

A central service register, use case related risk reports, as well as status overviews of mitigation measures guarantee an overview in the cloud zoo. Customer-specific applications, e.g. for the processing directory, requirements management, or collaborative navigation, can easily be docked to CloudGate via a REST API. This avoids redundant data collection in different applications.

User concept

User groups and user roles enable the efficient management of access authorizations. Using user roles, such as Product Owner or Cloud Manager, the (testing) tasks of individual divisions can be mapped. Each user decides for themselves whether they want to work in German or English.

The need-to-know principle ensures that the decision as to whether a resource may be accessed is based solely upon the user's identity and organizational affiliation. Use case repositories provide easy access to use cases and their associated scenarios. Implemented tagging can be used to better assign use cases, costs, or any other relationships.


With Cloudgate, you can accelerate the onboarding of your applications and make them more secure. You will also see how easily you can stay on top of the accompanying cloud application compliance and risk management.
