There are many misconceptions about cloud security, and it starts with basic misunderstandings about what “the cloud” even is.
Essentially, the cloud is anything hosted and accessed virtually. Webmail systems like Gmail, and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are in the cloud. Really, the entire internet is the cloud!
As Sophos experts explain in a new whitepaper describing best practices for cloud security, the most important thing to remember is that when you put data in the cloud, you need to understand how it’s being protected. You shouldn’t assume that security is being taken care of for you.
Cloud security doesn’t have to be costly and complex. Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers speed and cost savings. Your cloud security solution should do the same.
As an AWS Advanced Tier security partner, we’re pleased to offer a new feature in Sophos UTM to protect your AWS environments while automatically scaling to fit your needs.
Sophos UTM for AWS now features Auto Scaling, so you can seamlessly scale up during demand spikes, or minimize costs by scaling back automatically during demand lulls.
Earlier this week, Amazon Web Services announced the availability of the AWS Marketplace in Frankfurt, making it the ninth region to offer direct deployment of our popular Sophos UTM and other security products for AWS.
This is fantastic news as compliance with Germany’s stringent data residency and sovereignty regulations poses a material challenge that limits many global and European customers’ ability to realize the flexibility, scalability and economics offered by AWS and the security of Sophos.
The AWS Frankfurt region is fully compliant with all applicable EU Data Protection laws, so customers can now use Sophos security products and other software from the AWS Marketplace without data compliance concerns.
With a busy week well under way at Amazon’s re:Invent conference, we’re pleased to launch our brand-new AWS Resource Center.
It showcases many of the ways Sophos makes AWS security simple! You’ll find a wealth of valuable information and resources that demonstrate just how easy it is to secure your AWS networks, servers, and applications with Sophos. There are case studies, videos, guides, links to test drives, and much much more to help you get started securing your AWS infrastructure.
They say every cloud has a silver lining, and the powerful things you will find inside the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud excite many. But those treasures need protecting, and Sophos UTM lets you cloak your Amazon infrastructure in layers of security armor. Whether you are new to AWS or a seasoned veteran that knows how to wield their products and services, newly released features of the AWS Marketplace let you deploy select products easier than ever before.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers a cloud computing platform that’s reliable, flexible and affordable. And we’re excited to offer a complete network security solution that fits seamlessly into AWS. Sign up to join our webcast on Thursday, December 12th, explaining how to take a test drive of Sophos UTM in AWS.
Sophos network security expert Bill Prout will show you how Sophos UTM in AWS provides all the features you need to protect your Virtual Private Cloud and EC2 instances, while providing secure connections for remote users, locations or across AWS regions.
In previous blog posts in this series, we’ve noted how Sophos UTM provides the ideal security solution for your Amazon Cloud infrastructure and how it not only provides complete protection, but how it’s completely elastic.
In this post, we’d like to cover a few of the ways you can get started with a Sophos UTM using Amazon Web Services (AWS).
