A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major
concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be
more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017
prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud
infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization
This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack
of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce
cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control
costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid
cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in
conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure.
Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much
operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be
guilty of overspending.

The European Union’s new regulatory framework for data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became enforceable on 25 May, 2018. Under GDPR, organisations have new obligations to improve the security and privacy practices for the personal data they collect and use. With these new obligations comes the potential for heavier fines and penalties. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help guide your organisation toward compliance under the new requirements. Take advantage of our services, resources, and experts as you navigate these changes.
In January 2016, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program released a draft of its high-impact baseline for moving federal data to the cloud. Not long after, Amazon Web Services (AWS) accepted an offer to pilot the new security threshold. AWS worked with FedRAMP to develop a set of standards under which highly sensitive government data could securely migrate into cloud environments. If ever you doubted that cloud computing was the new frontier for federal data and software management, look around. Over 2,300 government agencies worldwide have already migrated to the AWS Cloud. And in the U.S., this will only increase with the release of FedRAMP’s high baseline standards. Previously, CSPs could only become certified at a low or moderate baseline under FedRAMP, meaning agencies had no security baseline from which to spring their sensitive data into the cloud. These new standards effectively represent the fall of the final formal barrier to federal cloud computing. Terabytes o
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides rapid access to flexible and low-cost IT resources. With cloud computing, public sector organizations no longer need to make large upfront investments in hardware, or spend time and money on managing infrastructure. The goal of this whitepaper is to help you gain insight into some of the financial considerations of operating a cloud IT environment and learn how to maximize the overall value of your decision to adopt AWS.
This document provides information to assist customers who want to use AWS to store or process content containing personal data, in the context of common privacy and data protection considerations. It will help customers understand: the way AWS services operate, including how customers can address security and encrypt their content, the geographic locations where customers can choose to store content, and the respective roles the customer and AWS each play in managing and securing content stored on AWS services.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation. The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
Every so often there is a game changer in technology that completely disrupts how people operate.
Over the last six years that game changer has been cloud computing — in the past two years it has
been containers (often interchangeably known as Docker).
Informatica is a leader in Enterprise Cloud Data
Management, providing solutions that help
organizations optimize, transform, and analyze
their data. Informatica’s Intelligent Data Platform
is built on a microservices architecture, helping
organizations ensure their data is trusted, secure,
governed, accessible, timely, relevant, and
actionable on-premises or on the cloud.
By 2020, Gartner predicts 100% of new entrants to IT – and 80% of historical vendors –
will offer subscription-based business models to their customers. These organizations are
prioritizing the cloud over on-premises data centers and legacy software, so they can more
efficiently deliver highly available, scalable, and cost-effective service offerings.
To remain competitive, you need to modernize your approach to .NET development – and
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the ideal place to start.
This whitepaper will explore best practices for containerizing your Windows workloads on
AWS, including how to design your containers, which AWS services to leverage, and how
to modernize your existing .NET applications for the cloud.

Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints.
The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid
misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches.
It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud
environments — limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud
governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as
Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need
to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle.
Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud
expertise that organizations often do not have.
Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their
workloads to changes by automa
Imperva, an APN Security Competency Partner, can help protect your application workloads on AWS with the Imperva SaaS Web Application Security
platform. The Imperva high-capacity network of globally distributed security services protects websites against all types of DDoS threats, including networklevel Layer 3 and Layer 4 volumetric attacks—such as synchronized (SYN) floods and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) floods—and Layer 7 application-level
attacks (including the OWASP Top 10 threats) that attempt to compromise application resources. Harnessing real data about current threats from a global
customer base, both the Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS protection, incorporate an advanced client classification system that blocks malicious
traffic without interfering with legitimate users. Enterprises can easily create custom security rules in the GUI to enforce their specific security policy. In
addition, this versatile solution supports hybrid environments, allowing you to manage th
DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting
While monitoring is critical for any business, it is especially imperative for highly regulated
industries such as healthcare. With patient data to protect and regulatory standards to meet,
you need to make sure your teams are building solutions that comply. If you’re not compliant,
you need to be able to quickly remediate issues, so you can still get your products out to
market and deliver better patient care.
As companies like yours scale their cloud environment, the question has
evolved from “what do I need to protect” to “how do I control and monitor
what I am responsible for?” Many companies, especially those who are born on
the cloud, or who are more cloud-mature understand the Shared Responsibility
Model. Now, they are focusing on building a strategy that gives them greater
control and visibility of their cloud environment.
Gartner reported that “In 2018, the 60% of enterprises that implement
appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer
security failures.” Having the right monitoring strategy is beneficial for multiple
reasons, and this eBook will detail how OneLogin implemented it in their AWS
environment, and why you should consider implementing it in yours.
