You need a security-focused platform

Nick Anderegg
May 31, 2022

If you are considering Platform as a Service (PaaS) alternatives to Heroku and have regulatory or compliance requirements—or you are just generally concerned with the security of your infrastructure and the privacy of your users’ data—Aptible should be at the top of your list.

It can be hard to determine which risks you may even face when using a PaaS, because a PaaS, by definition, is an abstraction of more generalized infrastructure. In fact, this abstraction can increase the attack surface for a given vulnerability, because it naturally increases the underlying complexity of a system.

That's why it's critical for security to be a fundamental part of any PaaS product, rather than an add-on service or enterprise offering. We're building a security-focused platform that makes security more convenient for everyone—because secure infrastructure and a developer-friendly workflow aren't mutually exclusive!

Nick Anderegg
May 6, 2022

Heroku's varied and often platform-specific ways of deploying your application can make it difficult to understand the best way to migrate to another Platform as a Service. We're offering this guide to help you understand the flexible options you have for migrating an application from Heroku to Aptible.

Not only does Aptible make managing application infrastructure easier, but it also unlocks turnkey security & compliance benefits. When you’re ready to launch your application, you can deploy a dedicated stack with configuration monitoring and recommendations for further improvement surfaced directly in the Aptible Dashboard.

The guide will help you migrate your Heroku app and Postgres database to Aptible, and we'll provide specific advice for migrating from each of Heroku's deployment options.
