Amazon Web Services Security

Reduce risk while accelerating growth of your business with the cloud.

Using public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) for your applications and other workloads opens up new flexibility and economy for your business, but with it comes a rapidly evolving IT security landscape. As AWS provides the elasticity that your business needs, it is important to address your shared security responsibilities by protecting what you deploy on AWS against cyber threats and cyber attacks.

Your AWS environment requires cloud security technologies with 24x365 security monitoring to identify and protect your applications and workloads against cyber threats in real time.

That’s why we created a solution built specifically for securing your AWS environment deployments. Alert Logic® Cloud Defender® is a cloud-native, managed cloud security solution that provides complete security visibility and addresses a broad set of security compliance controls.

  • Log management to meet compliance requirements and to identify suspicious behavior from a comprehensive group of sources, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)
  • Vulnerability and security configuration management to assess your security posture and identify vulnerabilities hidden at all layers of your application stack
  • The industry's first network-level container security intrusion detection for AWS-deployed Docker, AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS), AWS-deployed Kubernetes, and Elastic Beanstalk
  • Expert incident analysis and live notifications of critical attacks in 15 minutes from one of our GIAC-certified security analysts
  • Full visibility and visualization of all assets in your AWS environment, with pre-built or ad hoc reports that include trend analysis, risk levels, threat details, potential impact and detailed remediation recommendations.
  • A wide range of security compliance controls for PCI DSS Compliance, HIPAA HITECH, SOC 2, GDPR Compliance, and SOX COBIT—including reporting, daily log review and fully managed and centralized logging

AWS shared responsibility model

Understand your role in securing your AWS environments

Security on AWS is a shared responsibility. AWS is responsible for the security of their cloud, such as physical security, instance isolation and protection for foundation services. You are responsible for security on the cloud, meaning you must secure your applications and data deployed on AWS. Alert Logic provides the managed intrusion detection, log management, advanced event correlation, and web application protection necessary to help meet your share of security responsibilities for a comprehensive security and compliance posture.
