Chef's products are engineered to help IT organizations become high performing Coded Enterprises. Chef helps teams achieve three defining features of a Coded Enterprise:
Design For Security and Compliance
Chef's core belief is that security and compliance are foundational to realizing IT opportunities. Chef helps even the world's largest and most heavily regulated organizations automate security and compliance across their estates. By defining security and compliance policies as human-readable code, organizations can ensure that security standards are maintained and easily audited.
Shift Left for Velocity and Collaboration
This approach enables organizations to 'shift left', a term used to describe ensuring security and compliance throughout the development process, not just at the end when it is ready for deployment. This facilitates a secure, compliant, and collaborative approach right from the start, saving teams the inefficiencies of having to rework a project following failed security testing.
Master Complexity In Heterogeneous Environments
Today’s production environments are complex, often for good reasons. Rather than narrowing options, Chef enables organizations to take advantage of any combination of on prem, cloud, hybrid, and air-gapped infrastructure to meet the unique needs of the business.
