CloudCounsel™ Architecture Guidance

Do ‘Cloud’ Securely

Infrastructure as a Service platforms have become their own separate computing ecosystems. Amazon Web Services alone has over 75 services and countless add-ons available in the AWS Marketplace. Cloud computing is a truly powerful capability. But with great power, comes great responsibility. Many organizations aren’t sure how to handle security challenges that are unique to the cloud.

Do you need answers to the following questions?

  • How do we secure systems in the cloud?
  • Should we create our own AMI or perform system hardening after instance creation?
  • Where do we store secrets?
  • How do we securely handle secrets when implementing automatic provisioning?
  • How do we get our Security Groups under control?
  • Should we be using KMS?
  • Is the AWS Web Application Firewall right for us?
  • Should we use an enterprise firewall solution on our IaaS platform?
  • How do we enable our developers without putting the business at risk?

If so, we can help. We can assess your current architecture and processes and give you clear guidance in 3 days.
