Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
AWS provides powerful controls to manage the security of software-defined infrastructure and
cloud workloads, including virtual networks for segmentation, DDoS mitigation, data encryption,
and identity and access control. Because AWS enables rapid and elastic scalability, the key
to securing cloud environments is using security automation and orchestration to effectively
implement consistent protection across your AWS environment.
The following eBook will discuss Dome9 best practices for using AWS controls to establish a
strict security posture that addresses your unique business needs, and maintaining consistency
across regions, accounts, and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) as your environment grows.
Vulnerabilities are very common nowadays. Even being a safest network does not mean that it cannot be compromised. It's how you handle these vulnerability and flaws and rectify the issues. In order help the security engineers Qualys, Inc. pioneer security brings free guide on Top 10 reports for Managing Vulnerability.

A penetration test, or pen-test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies.
This eBook provides a simple guide to explain both penetration testing's purpose and a basic guide to getting you there. Download now and start testing your network today.
Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.
So you’re thinking about moving to the cloud. Which means you’ve got some new (and some old) security issues to think about.
Where do you start? What should you look for when you’re planning your cloud migration or expansion, and what features do you need to tick off your list when you compare partners for the project?
At AWS, we’ve worked with millions of cloud users in 190 countries, from all kinds of industries – large enterprise, start-ups, non-profits, education and government. Every organisation's needs are different, but we’ve identified the top features of any successful cloud security initiative. Here are six must-haves for cloud security confidence.
You know that moving to the cloud is a huge opportunity for your business do great things. Be more agile, be more responsive, do things better.
But convincing everyone in your business isn’t easy, especially your security and compliance people who may well see the cloud as too big a risk.
This eBook is about answering those security questions – and communicating the six core benefits a data secure cloud will bring to your organisation.

Cloud deployments are becoming essential to all businesses, but face several challenges: cost, compliance, and agility. Delphix Data as a Service is a scalable and flexible deployment platform enabling organizations to achieve compliance and data management agility, while lowering costs.
Cisco and Amazon Web Services (AWS) believe not only in making it simple to connect to the cloud, but also to protect your cloud services. Security is not just an on-premises or a cloud thing. It’s every-“thing” and everywhere. Gaining pervasive security means you need visibility across your entire IT environment to help you effectively identify and mitigate security threats.
Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud provides scalable visibility and delivers secure network behavioral analysis across on-premises and AWS environments to help identify anomalous activity that could indicate a security threat. This self-learning security solution continually refines its behavioral models as it monitors your environment, ultimately improving its functionality and reducing the costs required for manual security checks and updates.
Watch our webinar to learn how JetBrains increased transparency and reduced threat exposure by deploying Stealthwatch Cloud on AWS. Along with increased infrastructure protection,
There are no flawless software systems or applications. When flaws result in security vulnerabilities, threat actors exploit them to compromise those systems and applications and, by extension, the endpoints on which they reside. Although software vendors issue vulnerability patches to remediate those flaws, many organizations do not apply all available patches to their production environments.
New and existing SAP customers can confidently deploy their mission-critical workloads on AWS knowing that AWS and SAP have worked closely to test and certify that the AWS Cloud meets the stringent performance and availability needs of SAP workloads.
Hundreds of enterprise SAP customers run SAP solutions on AWS and are achieving increased flexibility, performance, and security, while simultaneously cutting their costs by migrating to AWS.

As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational
efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the
importance of a well-architected framework. This
framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is wellintended,
secure, and compliant, but is not exactly
easy to achieve.
Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular--Security
and Cost Optimization--are the most
difficult to get right. This is partially because while
advanced tooling is required to manage cloud
complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying,
and operating these tools is costly and burdensome.
Without optimizing your environment for these two
pillars, you are preventing your organization from
scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that
are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any
benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place.
AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework,
which will walk you through common missteps and
how to get it right.

OpenVPN is a popular and respected solution for enabling remote access to AWS VPCs for IT personnel, cloud developers, and a wide variety of end-user roles. While OpenVPN may be all that is needed to enable cloud access for a few users, it alone cannot meet the needs of growing organizations – particularly those that have security or compliance requirements. Similarly, Bastion hosts or jump hosts are often used when AWS is primarily focused on developers, but these tools likewise have scaling and security limitations.
As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, review key requirements and compare the remote user VPN options available for managing and securing access to AWS VPC resources. They also demonstrate features that ensure your remote access tools and methodology are “enterprise cloud-ready.”
