Table of Contents

Automat-it is our one-stop-shop for all our cloud business needs. They do a phenomenal job in providing migration services, support and more


bizibox was established with the aim of providing business owners, accountants and tax consultants with a user-friendly, simple system that delivers a professional solution to their financial and business analysis needs. 

With bizibox, business owners can view the most recent bank account and credit card activity, and the business’s up-to-date financial information, simply by clicking a button, on your mobile or PC – allowing them to make the best decisions for the business.

As a fintech company, security is a high priority. Following a period of ongoing growth, bizibox decided to review the current security architecture to ensure it meets current standards and best practices. Automat-it, being a well-recognized AWS partner in the security vertical with its own Cloud Center of Excellence with a focus on security, was a natural choice.


The highlights of the implemented solution are:

  1. Infrastructure hardening and templating. This ensures easy secured scalability and data security even when access is compromised.
  2. Encryption of all layers.
  3. Security monitoring via Palo Alto Prisma Cloud

The solution utilizes Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition as the centralized, scalable database engine and Amazon ElastiCache for Redis for the caching needs. Most of bizibox’s workloads are hosted by Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), with the addition of the Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) for shared data processing. 

AWS Lambda is used to perform event-driven data processing actions that are part of a complex ETL pipeline, orchestrated by Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) and Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS). As part of the solution, Automat-it also conducted a Well-Architected Review and Remediation. 

The Well-Architected Review is performed regularly to ensure continuous compliance with security best practices.


  1. A secured solution according to the latest best practices.
  2. Security issues detection and prevention.
  3. ISO27001 and ISO27799 certifications.
