How to Accelerate Security Confidence for AWS Cloud?

A well-defined defense plan is one of the most critical aspects of protecting one’s AWS cloud. A proper plan starts with an evaluation of the current setup. Are there any holes in digital walls? From there one can create a road map for the stable future one wants.

Fremont, CA: Customers of today's cloud providers look beyond the simple advantages of the cloud, such as ease of scale and payment options. Today, they want the cloud to keep their company changing and boost their customer experience to help them compete. Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud protection is often seen as getting in the way of these ambitions, but it doesn't have to be that way.

Know the Cloud

A well-defined defense plan is one of the most critical aspects of protecting one’s AWS cloud. A proper plan starts with an evaluation of the current setup. Are there any holes in digital walls? From there one can create a road map for the stable future one wants.

Using DevSecOps in Cloud Security Strategy

One of the advantages of AWS Cloud is how DevOps can offer on-going integration, distribution and deployment. Some protection functions, including scanning and checking, can now be synchronized during the life cycle of growth. In this way, security aligned with DevOps will allow the best practice of 'safe by design'—defense apps and systems designed in from the very beginning of design, through development, and then deployment.

Bringing Threat Management Plans Together

If of course, one’s business data flows between various networks, they will need to secure hybrid or multi-cloud setups as part of the overall cloud position. In situations like this, cloud-based native protection functions are adopted by cloud service providers themselves. For instance, AWS brings Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Macie, AWS CloudTrail, AWS Config, and AWS Security Center. One can also exploit SIEM with functions like this. They allow one to centralize the management of threats for insight, monitoring and incident response.

Using Force Multipliers

Consulting, system integration, and managed security service providers enable their customers to implement cloud-based defense functions and integrate them with existing defenses. These services will increase in-house strategies as a trusted partner providing a blueprint, services and open technologies to enhance overall risk management readiness.
