ESP @ Work: Automating Policy Enforcement at an Online Mortgage Company

“Evident.io is helping to transform our [Online Mortgage Processing] Company into a technology company.” – Staff Engineer at Online Mortgage Processing Company

Online Mortgage Processing Company Automating Policy Enforcement

Background

This Online Mortgage Processing Company provides an all-in-one mortgage management solution that enables banks, credit unions and mortgage lenders to create and fund mortgages and improve compliance, loan quality and efficiency. Their solution is used by more than 120,000 mortgage professionals and thousands of mortgage companies, including six of the 20 largest U.S. mortgage lenders. They process more than 25% of the mortgages in the US.

Problem

Online Mortgage Processing Company’s vision is to automate the entire residential mortgage process. This vision demands scalability, rapid development, highly secure and highly available solutions. They needed to adopt a Cloud Native DevOps model without sacrificing security.

Solution

The Online Mortgage Processing Company implemented Evident.io’s Cloud Infrastructure Security and Compliance Platform, Evident Security Platform (ESP). They quickly set up their accounts and worked with Evident.io to generate custom control checks, alerts, enable user attribution and develop Lambda workflows to eliminate human error and optimize security automation.

Result

ESP provided the security and operations teams with complete transparency into the security posture of all of their AWS accounts at all times. It took about 2 months and involved 2 engineers fully dedicated to building out auto-remediation or automated policy enforcement. By scripting policy controls and remediation steps through ESP’s integrations with AWS SNS and Lambda workflows, the organization operates in the cloud where their security and compliance is continuous. Their security automation strategy is so strong that every person who gets an AWS account gets an ESP account too. This enables the Online Mortgage Processing Company to advocate for a security upon entry as well as to have full visibility into who is changing what within their cloud environment.
