miura

Miura Regulatory Technologies are automating the regulatory compliance lifecycle with the help of firstblox and AWS Cloud technologies.


Company Background

Miura automates the whole regulatory compliance life cycle using document scanning and natural language processing technology, backed up by a team of Regulatory Experts.

The challenge

Miura provides a complete solution to compliance lifecycle automation for a number of financial institutions. Enterprise-grade Cloud Security, Reliability, Resiliency, and Performance are key to achieving this on behalf of their customers.
Our team was tasked with architecting and provisioning a foundation that directly aligned with these goals. As the business prepared to ramp up in 2020, firstblox was requested to design and provision the solution in a short time-frame.

Why firstblox?

We understood from speaking with firstblox initially that they understood the needs of our business, and that they had some direct experience achieving similar goals for other B2B Enterprise SaaS product businesses. After some discussions and agreement on delivery milestones, we were happy to engage and get started.

Testimonial

As our business began to ramp up we needed to build a secure Cloud Platform to services our customers (financial institutions). After meeting to discuss our goals, firstblox recommended a clear approach to laying our cloud foundation and building our architecture. They then engineered solutions that saved us countless time, money, and effort. They’re a great fit if you’re looking for solid skills and experience working in the AWS Cloud. I highly recommended them if you’re starting or scaling a product company.
