Prancer Platform documentation site
Welcome to the Prancer cloud security platform documentation!
Prancer is a pre-deployment and post-deployment multi-cloud security platform for your Infrastructure as Code (IaC) security and continuous compliance requirements in the cloud.
Prancer integrates with your developer's pipeline to ensure the secure and quality code will reach the cloud. It prevents any security misconfiguration from being applied to the cloud via the IaC pipeline security validation gates. In case of finding any problem, Prancer can file a PR on behalf of the user to remediate the issue in the code.
Moreover, Prancer validates your cloud resources based on available compliance frameworks and custom policy files. It scans the cloud environment continuously to find security misconfigurations. It alerts and reports on problems and provides an easy way to auto remediate the problems.
