AWS Cloud Security
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers reliable and scalable cloud computing services. While cloud security at AWS is the highest priority, it is still the responsibility of the company to ensure that all data and systems in the cloud are secure. Organizations that utilize AWS cloud must follow compliance best practices while at the same time ensure they implement cloud security.
When looking at AWS cloud security tools, recognize that a full suite of capabilities is critical to defending your AWS workloads. There are some features that must be included to ensure your company has the highest level of protection, including:
Security that goes wide
Check against best practices
Security that Goes Wide
Many organizations have multiple AWS accounts. To get a complete view of your infrastructure, it is necessary to have specific tools that can handle the fast pace of changes in the cloud. By having proper AWS data security, your company can progress into continuous delivery and deployment with DevOps, while providing a full view of all of your organization’s AWS accounts, regions, and services.
nOps enables you to monitor all your AWS accounts with a click of the button.
Check Against Best Practices
To defend your AWS cloud services you need security that runs deep and allows you to check your environment against hundreds of best practices. You need comprehensive protection for your systems, especially as organizations move further into continuous behaviors.
nOps rules allow you to monitor over 100 best practices.
Continuous monitoring contributes to the security of your AWS cloud as real-time monitoring allows you to immediately detect changes as they happen. This continuous monitoring gives your organization the ability to find and fix vulnerabilities while simplifying cloud compliance reporting and reducing costs of audits.
nOps allows you to continuously monitor all your AWS resources for compliance issues.
Security automation is required when dealing with the AWS cloud security processes. By automating your processes and strengthening your AWS firewall, you will be able to streamline cloud operations while identifying, prioritizing, and remediating risks quickly and efficiently. This automation significantly reduces the probability of an attack, and drastically reduces the time between vulnerability and remediation.
While you can do all the automation to provision your resources on your own, no one is stopping engineers from making changes manually. By making sure there is real-time monitoring in place, you can track all the manual changes to your systems and know exactly what is occurring within your infrastructure.
