Build with the Highest Standards for Privacy and Data Security
We provide tools that allow you to easily encrypt your data in transit and at rest using keys managed by AWS Key Management System (KMS) or CloudHSM (FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated HSMs).

The Shared Responsibility Model maps your end-to-end security  

The Shared Responsibility Model (SRM) makes it easy to understand your role in protecting your unique AWS environment. Choose from the many cloud-ready software solutions to meet the highest standards of data security in the cloud. 


Enhance Networking Capabilities on AWS

AWS provides organizations around the globe with the benefits of the AWS Cloud including improved connectivity, performance, flexibility, scalability, and availability. These benefits extend into AWS’s networking capabilities, which in turn enable you to connect to your AWS environment remotely. Further, you can improve the connectivity between your remote office locations around the globe by leveraging AWS services such as AWS Direct Connect, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), and more. By leveraging AWS for your IT environment, you can quickly scale out your network to boost application and end-user experience through improved performance and connectivity.

 
 

AWS Networking Solutions

AWS offers a variety of networking solutions to help you get the most out of AWS and your IT environment.
Most of these solutions fall into the following categories:

  • Network Monitoring – Log and monitor network traffic and set alerts for abnormal traffic patterns.

  • Load Balancing– Optimize network traffic and application loads to utilize infrastructure more efficiently.

  • VPN– Privately connect to AWS and other assets, and centralize connectivity, without using secure encryption.

  • Routing – Efficiently direct network traffic to the correct asset anywhere on your network.

  • SD-WAN – Reduce or eliminate your reliance on MPLS networks with SD-WAN capabilities.

Key Networking Services on AWS


Amazon VPC 

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) is a logically isolated section of your cloud environment where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including a selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways.  


AWS Direct Connect

AWS Direct Connect makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to AWS. Using AWS Direct Connect, you can establish private connectivity between AWS and your datacenter, office, or colocation environment.  


Elastic Load Balancing

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. By distributing incoming traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances, you can achieve fault tolerance in your applications, seamlessly providing the required amount of load balancing capacity needed to route application traffic.  


Amazon Route 53  

Amazon Route 53 is AWS’s highly available and scalable cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service. It is designed to give developers and businesses an extremely reliable and cost-effective way to route end users to Internet applications and is fully compliant  and is fully compliant with IPv6.
