How much does BAM cost?
BAM is free to use. If you want to use BAM to the full extent of its capabilities, you need to register for a pro or enterprise account. You can find pricing plans on our Pricing Page.
How are we ensuring security when using BAM?
Our first priority is security and it is the utmost importance for us to make sure it is robust.
BAM follows all the well architected framework best practices.
We use a very simple concept : every customer is isolated in a sub account.
When you build a new project, all the configuration will be automatically pushed in this sub account in a dedicated vault.
Everything is segmented and unable to communicate directly from one environment to another. In other words everything is scoped in sillo.
It means that you have full control on what you give us access through, through the Launcher we have specially created for your account.
You give the launcher access through secured identification process (Identity and Access Management – IAM)
What do we mean when we talk about “secured architecture”?
We, at BAM, want the most secure environment for you : depending on your pricing plan, you will find the right level of security between simple, pro, expert or enterprise.
Note that, only Expert and enterprise levels are labelled “well architected frameworks”.
Refer to the list of features and pricing plan for more information.
What do we mean about when we talk about the shared responsibility models ?
A shared responsibility model is a cloud security framework that dictates the security obligations of a cloud computing. It shows the shared responsibility there is between the customer and the cloud provider.
Customer’s responsibility : You, as a cloud customer are responsible for what you put in the cloud.
Can I use BAM to meet industry compliance standards (such as HIPAA, PCI, SOC-1, SOC-2, HDS)?
Yes, you can deploy infrastructures created in BAM, which will be following best practices at the time of creation and guaranteed regulatory compliance standards. Note that for now we are not a registered auditor but the platforms we offer will be auditable following those standards.
Does BAM creates a new Cloud provider Organizations account structure?
Yes, if it’s needed by your organisation BAM will be creating a new list of accounts specifically for your environment (Landing Zone feature capability).
Can I deploy BAM on my existing AWS Organizations accounts?
Yes, you can implement BAM whatever you want in you current account or we can build a new one for you.

Cost : what do I pay on cloud ?
Our work at BAM is to make sure you make the most of the cloud providers’ services with the greatest optimization possible while complying with well architected standards.
