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

Assess your security posture and strengthen your AWS environment to protect your business and data with the support and guidance of certified cloud experts from Mission Cloud, an AWS Level 1 Managed Service Security Provider (MSSP) Competency Partner.

Well-Architected Security Best Practices and Strategic Technology Roadmapping

Once Mission Cloud fully learns and understands your business objectives, our security assessment evaluates your environment against AWS well-architected security best practices and Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks for AWS.

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
  • Network Architecture

    • 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
    • S3 Access Logging
    • IAM Access Analyzer
    • Centralized Logging

“Our team possesses the required security expertise, but there were a lot of new technologies for us to learn, and security best practices constantly evolve. To roll out new security controls quickly and meet the needs of our customers, we needed to turn to a cloud security partner.”
