AWS Security Services

AWS Security Services are comprehensive. You get a real-time judgment by their AWS Trusted Advisor which is an online tool serving as a customized cloud professional. A Technical Account Manager (TAM) is yet another AWS solution for customers looking for expertise on the technology across all the services. TAMs provide all the information regarding new features and in case of emergency make sure the issues are resolved at the earliest.

  • Amazon Virtual Private Network has built-in firewalls. Even the web applications are loaded with firewall capabilities in AWS WAF. Encryption is customer-controlled and all services are equipped with Transport Layer Security (TLS). AWS security provides various connectivity options that allow dedicated or private connections. All traffic on the regional, as well as global networks of AWS, are encrypted mechanically.
  • A cloud needs to be 24*7 available and accessible. AWS services are capable of avoiding and winning over Distributed Denial of service or DDoS attack.
  • AWS Key Management Service or AWS KMS lets you decide whether to give the key management to AWS or do it yourself.
  • Amazon Inspector checks the system for added security. It inspects if the best practices are being followed. It goes through operating systems, storage and, impacted networks.

  • AWS constantly tests its infrastructure and publishes the results in its reports and it also allows its customers to do penetration testing without any permission requirements for a number of its core services.
  • Customers are expected to familiarize themselves with the shared security model of the AWS. While the AWS protects the software, hardware and the facilities that host AWS services, it is the responsibility of the customers to ensure the security of the unmanaged services.
  • Tightening CloudTrail security features is essential because it generates log files of command line tools, SDKs and AWS management console and if the attackers get access to the CloudTrail the first thing they’re going to do is delete the log files.
  • When IAM policies are created, it is advised to stick them to groups rather than to individual users to accidentally give excessive or unwarranted permissions to users.
  • S3 buckets must be kept private and no business, unless needed, should keep them readable or writable for the public.
  • Data in the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) must be encrypted for added security.
  • Access to Relational Database instances must be kept restricted to avoid DDoS, brute force attacks and other malicious activities like SQL injections.
  • The require_ssl parameter is expected to be enabled in all the RedShift clusters to thwart man-in-the-middle attacks.

AWS Security and Compliance

AWS Artifact is an online portal that gives users access to the security and compliance documents, also called audit artifacts. It consists of Service Organization Control (SOC) reports, accreditation agencies’ certificates from around the globe, Payment Card Industry Reports (PCI) and verticals of compliance that authenticate the effectiveness of AWS security.

Businesses using AWS services can present these documents before their regulatory and accrediting agencies to demonstrate security and compliance.
