How We Do AWS Cloud Security

Team: 24/7 Management Of Your Cloud Security Posture

We actively manage your cloud security posture and reduce risk by improving cloud visibility, tracking assets, and monitoring for security vulnerabilities. Our 24/7 SOC Cyber Analysts and Elite Threat Hunters detect emerging threat tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) specific to the cloud before they impact your AWS resources. They are supported by the eSentire Threat Response Unit (TRU), an industry-leading team that identifies the latest attacker TTPs with proprietary cloud detectors mapped against the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

Machine Learning: Powerful XDR Platform

Our cloud-native, open XDR Platform is the foundation of eSentire MDR, providing security, reliability and redundancy at scale and on demand, so our services can grow with your business. Leveraging patented machine learning and artificial intelligence models, our XDR platform ingests millions of raw signals daily, and automatically disrupts known high-fidelity, malicious threats. If an automated response isn’t possible, our XDR platform equips eSentire’s SOC analysts with an enriched work item to perform a manual multi-signal investigation. Always improving, we add 200+ IOCs daily to our XDR platform block list based on original research, proactive threat hunting, and positive SOC investigations driven across our global customer base.

The result? Complete visibility, deep investigation and complete threat response with a 15-min mean time to contain.

Operations: Proven Cloud Security Processes

Our experts rapidly remediate critical cloud misconfigurations and neutralize cyberattackers that have potentially gained access to your AWS resources. We disrupt, isolate, and contain cloud security threats before they impact your business operations:

  • Exposed services and data
  • Activity from known bad IPs
  • Data exfiltration
  • Unusual privilege changes
  • Improper resource usage
  • Identity and access management (IAM) policy violations

Frequently Asked Questions about AWS Cloud Security

What is AWS Cloud Security?

AWS Cloud Security refers to the practices, technologies, and tools designed to protect the data, applications, and infrastructure hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform from security threats and vulnerabilities. It encompasses a range of measures, including identity and access management, encryption, network security, and compliance monitoring, to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of resources in the AWS cloud environment.

How to Secure Your AWS Cloud Environment?

AWS Cloud Security works by implementing a multi-layered approach to protect cloud resources. It begins with identity and access management, where users and applications are authenticated and authorized to access specific resources. Encryption is employed to secure data in transit and at rest, while network security measures, like firewalls and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) configurations, protect network traffic. Continuous monitoring, auditing, and compliance checks ensure that security policies are adhered to, and any threats are detected and eliminated promptly. This comprehensive strategy helps maintain AWS cloud environments' security, compliance, and resilience.

What is the Importance of Strong AWS Cloud Security?

Having a strong set of AWS Cloud Security measures is essential to protect your sensitive data, applications, and infrastructure from emerging threats. It ensures the integrity and availability of critical resources while maintaining regulatory compliance, which is essential for organizations across various industries. Robust AWS Cloud Security protects against potential breaches and data loss. It instills trust among customers and partners, enabling you to enjoy the full benefits of cloud computing without compromising security.

Which Actions Will Help Increase Security in AWS Cloud?

Cloud environments are incredibly dynamic. 24/7 monitoring, investigation and response capabilities are crucial to make sure you can detect and disrupt persistent threats in your AWS Cloud environment before they disrupt your business. Some of the main security issues within AWS Cloud include misconfigurations, resource misuse, and improper configuration for regulatory compliance. MDR for Cloud can secure your multi-cloud environments and protect your business from:

  • Cloud misconfigurations
  • Policy violations
  • Unauthorized access
  • Insecure interfaces
  • Unusual administrator activity
  • Resource highjacking
  • Exposed data
  • Insecure APIs and vulnerabilities

It’s also important to have deep visibility into your cloud environment to prevent cloud misconfiguration breaches. Continuous threat detection mechanisms should be in place to proactively identify any suspicious activity, ensuring early awareness of potential security breaches. Leveraging automated threat blocking capabilities can help reduce alert fatigue and rapidly neutralize threats.

Are You Experiencing a Security Incident or Have You Been Breached?

If you need immediate assistance, we can help. eSentire Digital Forensics & Incident Response services are available for Emergency Incident Response Support or as an Incident Response Retainer. When you’ve been breached, every second counts so we make 4-hour threat suppression possible, remotely, anywhere in the world.
