Cofounder of Sydney AWS consultancy DNX Solutions, Allan Denot, is the new CEO of the company’s compliance solution spinoff company Citadel.
DNX Solutions went public in early 2022 with news about its plans for Citadel, which is marketed as a security and governance platform for AWS for compliance with CDR, HIPAA, PCI DSS, SOC 2, and ISO 27001 standards.
