With the growing trends of data centre migration, business landscape envisions an enthusiastic zeal to transfer data to AWS.

But, oftentimes there is security compliance that hinders their path. Mitigating this shortcoming is Taiwan-based company, CKmates. Founded in 2011, the firm offers secured data centre migration using AWS for organisations, especially gaming, e-commerce, and the media industry. With these growing trends of data centre migration, CKmates unifies itself by leveraging its secure and optimised AWS cloud programs for enterprises to promote security protection in data transfer.

Nonetheless, the firm further astounds clientele with the development of an auto tool to accomplish smart and convenient working by the executive team consisting of Network Engineer, Solutions Architect, and Information Security Engineer.
Furthermore, CKmates indulges in providing security training and compliance consulting service with 24 hours of Network Operations Center (NOC) monitoring team and monitor log, and records by SIEM (ArcSight). Using the technique the security team can keep a check on client’s host traffic and combats any security abnormalities that emerge. Leveraging its expertise in security service, CKmates proffers Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI).
As a reliable AWS partner, CKmates emphasises on comprehensive protection from the web application, enterprise network, and DDoS attacks, using the internal L7~L4 Web Application Firewall (WAF) and SIEM monitoring to minimise security risks. Its code review service in security sphere verifies that proper security controls are present and codes have been invoked at right places. Moreover, the firm’s advisory services and assistance deployment automatically detects application weakness and delivery of defense mechanisms.
Over the years, CKmates has crafted many success stories, helping clients securely migrate to AWS. An instance, they have aided WeatherRisk—a high-precision weather forecast organisation with proprietary technology and the large quantities of meteorological data in multiple sources to migrate to AWS for delivering enhanced forecasts. However, CKmates provided training to WeatherRisk personnel to enable them to make the transition and to operate the AWS services, resulting précised forecasts.
Going further, CKmates will be seen sponsoring iThome Cloud Summit 2017 focusing on AWS DevOps. According to Ho, the firm further plans to integrate with Google GCE, Azure, and Alibaba to develop cloud system management platform by 2019—focusing on hybrid cloud architecture that covers
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud management technology. Moreover, the firm also looks forward to providing customers with enhanced quality services and further envisions being Taiwan's largest cloud technology provider.
