Overview

CFEngine is a configuration management and automation framework that lets you securely manage your mission critical IT infrastructure.

Ensure compliance
Define the desired state and configuration of your IT infrastructure, and CFEngine will automatically ensure that it complies.

Automate
Automatically roll out updates and changes to every node in your infrastructure, whether you have 50 or 50,000 nodes.

Everywhere
CFEngine uses autonomous agents which run on every node of your infrastructure, implementing your desired state and reporting back continuously.

Anywhere
CFEngine runs on the smallest embedded devices, on servers, in the cloud, and on mainframes, easily handling tens of thousands of nodes.

SaltStack is an intelligent IT automation platform that can manage, secure, and optimize any infrastructure—on-prem, in the cloud, or at the edge. It’s built on a unique and powerful event-driven automation engine that detects events in any system and reacts intelligently to them, making it an extremely effective solution for managing large, complex environments. And with the newly launched SecOps offering, SaltStack can detect security vulnerabilities and non-compliant, mis-configured systems. As soon as an issue is detected, this powerful automation helps you and your team remediate it, keeping your infrastructure securely configured, compliant, and up-to-date.
