Moving to AWS is a strategic business decision that companies like Time Inc., Expedia, Kellogg’s, Adobe and more have undertaken. However, on opting for AWS, these companies needed to reinforce their security controls and adopt a multi-tiered defense strategy of identity management and encryption to achieve more granular security.

Although the security benefits of AWS are unquestionable, a major challenge for AWS customers is the growing volume of new users with shared or changing IP addresses. This challenge becomes more complex as more and more organizations adopt BYOD, transfer data and applications to the cloud and hybrid environments, and support employees who often use remote networks.

Enterprises using native AWS controls to secure users in these circumstances are left with two suboptimal choices. Either leave the IP address range for users wide open, or tightly control user access by limiting the range of IP addresses. The first option reduces security and raises risk while the second option significantly obstructs business agility.

For AWS users, an identity-centric security solution is needed that protects applications and content while delivering enhanced user access control. Organizations that embrace AWS should consider adopting a Software-Defined Perimeter model for granular security control.

AWS Security Resource Center

To help those organizations already using AWS or those that are undertaking strategic migrations, Cryptzone has put together some helpful AWS security resources.

In this eBook, we discuss some of the challenges with either wide-open access or tightly-controlled access in AWS. Both have consequences, so what do you do? The eBook will help you can learn more about how a Software-Defined Perimeter security model overcomes these challenges.

Case Study: Security Regulatory Organization

Read how one securities regulatory organization used Cryptzone to secure its new AWS environment.

This securities regulatory organization analyses massive volumes of financial data across multiple markets to detect potential fraud, overseeing up to 75 billion market transactions every day. To more efficiently operate, the organization migrated to AWS. The organization then needed a solution for secure access to network resources in AWS and the ability to easily demonstrate compliance to financial services regulations.

Controlling user access to AWS resources is a problem.

The problem is that AWS Security Groups fall short – they’re static and IP address-based. Controlling “who can access what” with static IP address and port mapping just doesn’t scale in today’s dynamic AWS environments.

See how to stop threats that static AWS Security Groups can’t control!

Meet Cryptzone at the AWS Global Summit San Francisco

Headed to the AWS Global Summit San Francisco April 18-19, 2017? Concerned about AWS security? Visit Cryptzone at Booth 1647 to learn more about AppGate for AWS.

AppGate, a Software-Defined Perimeter solution, is purpose-built for the AWS environment and draws on user context to dynamically create a secure, encrypted network segment of one that’s tailored for each user session. It dramatically simplifies the cloud resource user access problem and eliminates IP-based over-entitled network access. AppGate is a key technology that leverages the Cloud Security Alliance’s Software-Defined Perimeter security architecture.
