AWS Network Security Deep Dive: Providing Network Protection for AWS Cloud Resources

Webinar Registration

Running workloads in the cloud makes provisioning and setup easier—just spin up a VM. But you might be surprised by how many firewalls you’ll end up with in the cloud if you follow best practices. Cloud providers are clear on this point. Amazon says, “Security and Compliance is a shared responsibility between AWS and the customer… The customer assumes responsibility and management of the guest operating system (including updates and security patches), other associated application software as well as the configuration of the AWS provided security group firewall.” In short, cloud security is in your court.

In this webinar, we will do a deep dive into network security in the AWS cloud. 

Some of the AWS security features we’ll explore include:

  • Security groups — Act as a firewall for associated Amazon EC2 instances, controlling both inbound and outbound traffic at the instance level
  • Network access control lists (ACLs) — Act as a firewall for associated subnets, controlling both inbound and outbound traffic at the subnet level
  • Flow logs — Capture information about the IP traffic going to and from network interfaces in your VPC
  • AWS WAF — Provides firewall protection for web applications (Web Application Firewall)
  • AWS Firewall Manager — Provides centralized management of AWS WAF
  • VPC Peering Connections — Enables networking connection between two VPCs so that you can route traffic between them
  • VPC Endpoints — Enables users to connect with AWS services that are outside the VPC through a private link
  • AWS VPN Connections — Allows you to connect your Amazon VPC to remote networks via VPN
  • AWS Direct Connect — Serves as a dedicated, private connection from a remote network to your VPC

This webinar will help you understand how networking security works within the Amazon cloud and with connections to the outside world, whether that’s customers on the Internet, connections to your data center or even to other clouds you use. 

We will also discuss the need to keep all this straight, understood, consistent and configure to reflect your security intent accurately. Managing on-premises firewalls is challenging enough. Adding cloud firewall management to the mix makes it even tougher. That’s where our sponsor, FireMon, comes in. Tim Woods will briefly discuss where FireMon is headed to support your cloud security efforts, the importance of discovery, extended visibility, and how the key tenants of security intent figure into the equation.
