AWS Control Tower

What is it?

A secure, compliant multi-account foundation, allowing you to quickly spin-up additional accounts, consolidate billing, group accounts, and apply policies to those groups.

Caylent’s experience working with complex technology organizations that require regulatory compliance has resulted in our team setting up hundreds of AWS Control Tower foundations. Caylent works alongside clients on new AWS Control Tower setups or can help organizations migrate from legacy account structure to AWS Control Tower.

This solution accelerates implementation of a production ready AWS foundation with AWS Control Tower.
