Managing Amazon GuardDuty Security Findings Across Multiple Accounts

2021-05-04T08:41:17+00:00

In our previous article, we discussed how GuardDuty can help organizations monitor their workloads and  AWS accounts from malicious activities and how to monitor findings with Amazon CloudWatch Events. Imagine that your organization has multiple AWS accounts for different workloads, teams, and projects. With every account, you need to monitor GuardDuty findings individually. It will be quite difficult for your security team to monitor these findings with their constant switching between AWS accounts.  Amazon GuardDuty supports the consolidation of these findings to one AWS account. For example, your organization has 10 AWS accounts. All you have to do is to [...]

Amazon S3 Access Points

2021-05-03T13:01:54+00:00

Managing access to your S3 buckets should be pretty easy using Amazon S3’s bucket policy. But as the number of your users and data grows, this easily becomes a complicated task. Provisioning access policies (who and where to access these objects) to these users could be a messy thing to do. AWS added this feature called Access Points on S3 to resolve this current problem. Access Points can simplify things in terms of provisioning access to different users. With this feature, each user can have a dedicated access point on a bucket and each of these access points has its [...]

Amazon S3 Event Notifications

2021-05-03T13:01:51+00:00

With Amazon S3 being virtually unlimited in size, it's quite a challenge to keep everything monitored especially when you are dealing with a large number of objects that scales up from time to time. With Amazon S3 Event Notifications, you’ll be able to immediately know when an object in your bucket was created, removed or restored. This feature allows you to get notifications every time an event happens on your S3 bucket. These notifications can then be forwarded to Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic, Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) queue, and AWS Lambda. The S3 Event Notification [...]

Step Scaling vs Simple Scaling Policies vs Target Tracking Policies in Amazon EC2

2021-05-12T06:42:22+00:00

Bookmarks Simple Scaling  Target Tracking Step Scaling  Creating a Step Scaling Policy for an Auto Scaling Group Amazon’s EC2 Auto Scaling provides an effective way to ensure that your infrastructure is able to dynamically respond to changing user demands. For example, to accommodate a sudden traffic increase on your web application, you can set your Auto Scaling group to automatically add more instances. And when traffic is low, have it automatically reduce the number of instances. This is a cost-effective solution since it only provisions EC2 instances when you need them. EC2 Auto [...]

AWS Global Accelerator vs Amazon CloudFront

In this day and age, your site speed performance is an important factor when it comes to user experience. It is widely recommended for websites to have an average load time of 3 seconds as users tend to abandon the site if a page takes longer than 3 seconds to load. According to Amazon, just 100 milliseconds of extra load time cost them 1% in sales. Indeed, every second counts in our fast-paced digital world. Amazon Web Services has always been the global leader in Cloud Computing with its speed, performance, and reliability. With its breadth of services, AWS gives [...]
