Policies define the desired configuration state of your servers and devices. In UpGuard, they're as simple to create as clicking on known-good configurations and giving the policy a name. The platform also comes with a number of industry-standard hardening policies for practically any popular operating system in use today.

UpGuard customers use the policy engine to affirm regulatory compliance, keep tens of thousands of machines in known-good states, and receive alerts when unauthorized changes occur. The policy engine also can be driven entirely from the API, meaning any business process that relies upon configuration states or compliance can be wired in, removing all the guesswork and uncertainty from your business infrastructure.
