CHEF AUTOMATE INCLUDES:

INFRASTRUCTURE AUTOMATION
This helps you deliver infrastructure and application code changes at higher velocity while ensuring that every change is automatically tested and QA’d.

COMPLIANCE AUTOMATION
This shows teams the status of all their nodes, whether configuration is correct or not, and when they came into the desired state. Teams can also view the compliance status of each node.

MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING
Use rules for many scenarios with Chef’s open-source, human readable language, InSpec. This helps you quickly identify compliance issues, security risks, and outdated software, and display them using visual dashboards and reports. Chef provides customizable built-in rule sets for industry security benchmarks, such as CIS Level 1.
