InSpec

ASSESS?

How does a business hand autonomy to delivery teams while still making sure their deployed solutions are safe and compliant? How do you ensure that servers, once deployed, remain secure and compliant over their operational lifetime? These are the problems that InSpec tries to address. InSpec is an infrastructure testing tool inspired by Serverspec, but with modifications that make the tool more useful for security professionals who need to ensure compliance across thousands of servers. Individual tests can be combined into complete security profiles and run remotely from a command line. InSpec is useful for developers but extends to testing deployed production infrastructure continuously, moving toward QA in production.
