Data Security for Amazon Web Services™

Solutions for securing virtual desktop infrastructure, application servers and EBS data storage

Amazon Web Services™ is the fastest growing public cloud service available today with its user-friendly management and the ease with which applications may be on-boarded onto a scalable and reliable cloud infrastructure.  While enterprises have leveraged the public cloud for development and test applications, these same enterprises are now looking to use AWS for hosting data storage as well as mission-critical server applications such as Microsoft SharePoint® and virtual desktops farms.

However, industry research confirms that data security concerns continue to be a top barrier in moving workloads to the cloud. While cloud data is subject to the same risks as that which are resident

in private datacenters such as cyber attacks, APT’s, malware and insider threats the move to public cloud environments introduces additional risk. Regulatory compliance, concerns of cyber surveillance and the loss of sovereignty over data, the issue of sensitive data remaining within the cloud even if the enterprise decides to leave this environment intensify the risk of moving workloads to the cloud.
