AWS Cloud Security Assessment
Benchmark your environment and get actionable advice for how to improve it
Assess Your Cloud Security Against AWS Best Practices
You rely on the cloud to remain competitive, agile, and secure. However, maintaining a good security posture still requires forethought, planning, good architectural decisions, adherence to rigorous compliance standards, and vigilance in following best practices.
You can use our AWS cloud security assessment to gauge the security posture of your cloud environment against AWS best practices. We’ll help you review results and offer recommended remediation strategies to resolve vulnerabilities and reduce your attack surface.
Develop a Clear Picture of Your Security Posture and Areas for Improvement
Well-Architected Security Best Practices and Strategic Technology Roadmapping
This process consists of a two-prong approach: 1) A security best practices scan and 2) A hands-on security assessment and review.
We’ll gauge the fundamental health of your company’s cloud infrastructure and help you start to integrate the technologies, architectures, and operational practices that drive a cost-effective, secure environment.
Our cloud experts consolidate all data, recommendations, and insights from the assessment into an actionable formal findings report so that you can see your security strengths and weaknesses. From there, we’ll work with you to establish an actionable plan.
During the assessment, we’ll evaluate the following areas:
Organizations and Identity and Access Management (IAM)
- AWS Organizations
- Organizational Units and Policies
- Root Access Controls
- IAM Settings
- IAM Users, Groups, Roles and Policies
- Federation and Authentication
- Security Groups
- Ingress/Egress Controls and Management Access Patterns
- Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Subnet Design
AWS Security Services and Tools
- AWS CloudTrail
- AWS Config
- AWS Security Hub
- Amazon Detective
