A better way to
Operational in days, audit-ready in weeks.
Open source systems are already pretty good at defending against common cyber attacks. But sometimes, you just need more. Maybe you're dealing with government, credit card or sensitive personal data, and you want peace of mind knowing that when the security auditor comes knocking, you're covered. Or, maybe you just want to avoid being the next data breach news story.
We hear you. That's why we've developed cloud automation solutions for discerning clients with unique cyber-security and compliance needs. In the past, it was normal to suffer through 6-12 month lead times and seven-figure build costs. Fortunately, those days are over. The Cohesion Method is the turnkey, compliance-driven solution you'll need to be up and running within days at a fraction of the cost. Best of all, you'll be reaping the benefits of cloud computing, software-defined networking and infrastructure-as-code from day one of your cloud journey.
The blueprint for cyber-security success in the cloud.
Cyber-security is often described as long periods of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror. Our approach takes advantage of existing resources by combining your people with our carefully curated processes and technologies, thus delivering a best-of-breed defensive cyber-security capability that's almost invisible to your developers and your business. We'll show you how to deal with the boredom and the terror that comes with hosting high value digital assets.
Launch compliance-driven cloud hosting environments within days instead of months.
ISM & PCI-DSS Conformant
Includes everything you need to demonstrate security and compliance.

Easily customisable to suit your business.
It's the technical and procedural blueprint for deploying and managing secure cloud hosting environments — at scale.
Web-scale open source frameworks.
The Cohesion Method ships with web-scale infrastructure automation code for a range of open source frameworks, so whether your applications are in PHP, Java, Ruby or Python, we can get you up and running fast. Need a clustered PostgreSQL database? We can show you how to do that. Maybe you'd like to integrate with existing, on-premise systems? We'll show you how to customise the automation code to suit your specific needs. You'll even learn how to manage change and keep your infrastructure patched through a series of centralised command-and-control consoles that just work.
So you made a change that broke something? Just revert to your previous commit. Maybe you fixed a bug and want to test it in a staging environment? Just create a branch. The Cohesion Method automates your production and staging infrastructure in a way that ensures your source code and your data remain safely and securely cocooned within your environment.
