AWS Cloud Security

Cloud security is essential to a secure enterprise.

Cyber crime, data breaches and other attacks are on the rise. By 2025, cyber crime will cost organizations $10.5 trillion each year. A remote workforce, the rise of personal VPN usage and the vulnerability in Log4j are just a few of the things keeping security professionals up at night.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers some of the best cyber security services available today. If your organization lacks the staff, expertise or resources to use AWS Security to its fullest Ziffity can help.

AWS Cloud Security Services

Why use AWS Security?

AWS gives security professionals the control and confidence needed to provide the flexibility users need, while meeting the exacting and stringent security requirements.

AWS offers an unparalleled level of protection for your company’s data, applications, devices and even users. AWS also lets you automate routine and manual security tasks so that you and your team can focus on other projects that are important to your company.

Our Offerings

Our expertise in AWS cloud offerings means Ziffity is well-equipped to ensure the highest level of security for your enterprise. We can help you deploy AWS Security in order to prevent, detect, respond to or remediate any nefarious activity that may occur within your network. Specific solutions include:

Data Protection

AWS provides services that allow you to protect your data from unauthorized access. Ziffity can help you implement and manage your AWS data protection services on an ongoing basis. We can help you take advantage of the encryption and key management, and threat detection services provided by AWS Security.

Identity & Access Management

Knowing who has access to your data and applications is one of the most crucial aspects of security. AWS Identity Services allow you to securely manage identities, resources, and permissions at scale. Ziffity can help you deploy AWS identity and access management services, and ensure that data is restricted to authorized employees, customers and contractors only.

Network Security                                         

Ziffity teams can help you implement AWS network and application protection services so that you can enforce fine-grained security policies at every access point. We can also help you deploy AWS so that it inspects and filters traffic to prevent unauthorized access to any component of your corporate network.

Threat Detection & Continuous Monitoring

AWS will continuously monitor your cloud environment for threats and nefarious activity, but someone still needs to act on those threat detections once they occur. Ziffity teams are available 24/7 to respond to those alerts as they occur, ensuring the safety of your business, employees and customers alike.

Compliance & Privacy

Consumer data privacy laws are ever-changing, and adding to the complexity, compliance varies from region to region. AWS can provide a comprehensive view of your compliance status -- as well as deploy automated compliance checks to monitor operations -- in order to ensure engagement with consumers in accordance with the jurisdictions in which they reside. This can be complex to set up, however, which is why Ziffity teams can help you deploy the compliance and privacy solutions provided by AWS Security.

    Frequently asked questions

    Why is cloud security important?

    Cloud security is important due to the following reasons:

    • According to Cisco 94% of workloads are processed by cloud data centers.
    • Statistica reported 156 million data breaches in the US alone.
    • It was also reported that hackers attack every 39 seconds.

    Hence, robust cloud security is essential for your business to grow and continue without any breach and downtime.

    What are the various security risks Ziffity can help avert?
    • Cloud Misconfiguration: This is a human error which occurs while configuring your cloud security protocols during cloud deployments.
    • Data Leaks: Lack of control over data flow and data accessibility.
    • Malicious activity: This is where individuals in the organization or outside negate security protocols and leak critical information.
    • Insecure APIs: Insecure, APIs can open lines of communications for attackers to exploit cloud resources.
    • Loss or Theft of Intellectual Property: Intellectual property (IP) theft, deletion, alteration or loss of access can occur.
    • Compliance Violations and Regulatory Actions: Cloud environment may need to adhere to regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, PCI and Sarbanes-Oxley, as well as requirements from internal teams, partners and customers.
    • Lack of Disaster recovery / Business continuity plan.
    How does cloud security work?

    Cloud security offers several layers of protection, including:

    • Data classification — Classifying of data on multiple levels like sensitive, regulated, or public, while it is created in the cloud. Once classified, data can be stopped from entering or leaving the cloud service.
    • Data Loss Prevention (DLP) — Have a cloud DLP solution in place to protect data from unauthorized access which automatically disables access and transports data when suspicious activity is detected.
    • Collaboration controls — Manage controls within the cloud service, such as downgrading file and folder permissions for specified users to editor or viewer, removing permissions, and revoking shared links.
    • Encryption — Cloud data encryption can be used to prevent unauthorized access to data, even if that data is already exfiltrated or stolen.
    • User access control — Implement system and application access controls that ensure only authorized users can access cloud data and applications.
    • Device access control — Block access when a personal, unauthorized device tries to access cloud data.
    • Malicious behavior identification — Detect compromised accounts and insider threats so that malicious data exfiltration does not occur.
    • Malware prevention — Prevent malware from entering cloud services using techniques such as file-scanning, application whitelisting, machine learning-based malware detection, and network traffic analysis.
    • Privileged access — Identify all possible forms of access that privileged accounts may have to your data and applications, and put in place controls to mitigate exposure.
    • Risk assessment — Review and update risk assessments to include cloud services. Identify and address risk factors introduced by cloud environments and providers. Risk databases for cloud providers are available to expedite the assessment process.
    • Compliance Assessments — Review and update compliance assessments for PCI, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and other application regulatory requirements.
    Will AWS Cloud Security take full responsibility for my company’s data, apps and services?

    AWS follows a shared security responsibility model. This means AWS claims responsibility for protecting the hardware, software, networking, and facilities that run AWS Cloud services. From your end you will need to take care of data that you have full control of, application code, resource configuration, identity and access control. Ziffity can help you in managing your end of the security requirements.

    Why should I choose Ziffity as my AWS Cloud Security partner?

    Ziffity has 80k hours of cloud experience and dozens of security projects under our belt. We can provide the right strategies and solutions to keep your data secure. Our industry experience includes retail, fashion, electrical distribution, jewelry, health and safety, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, among others.

    What is your disaster recovery approach?

    Ziffity offers a fully automated deployment approach to disaster recovery.

    High availability - By making your data available in multiple zones, we ensure continuity of your business.

    Periodic automated backups - We back up your data periodically as per your requirement.

    Source Control Version - All application codes will be kept in source control platform to ensure the immediate availability in case of disaster.

    Your disaster recovery program will be tested periodically via different types of simulation (chaos monkey)

    How much time overlap will there be between us?

    While most of the development team is based out of India, we do have relationship manager/solution specialists onshore. So from that sense, you do have full overlap. With respect to the technical team, you will have an overlap till 2 pm EST. In case of emergency, you can always reach out to the onshore team for help.

    During production releases, technical team will extend and be on standby and if you are signing the managed services post migration project, we will provide 24/7 support, otherwise on-demand support will be provided.

    How does the project communication happen?

    During the discovery phase, which is typically 2 to 4 weeks, we insist on having daily web meets. Post discovery, depending on the need, it would boil down to once or twice a week. And also, a monthly steering committee meeting, which would involve all senior stakeholders from both ends, to discuss progress and client satisfaction. Apart from calls, communication will happen via emails, Slack, Jira, and Confluence.

    How do you address concerns & escalations?

    Anytime you are not happy with us, you can escalate to your project manager, in the event you are not satisfied with the remedial measures taken, you can connect with your relationship manager. Our current “escalation” to “completed sprint” metric is at less than 1.5%.

    How does the payment terms work?

    Invoices will be raised at the beginning of each month for the preceding month’s effort. Both in the case of a retainer and fixed priced project, our standard payment term is net 15 days, and we prefer receipt of payment via wire transfer.

    What if I am not happy with the work done by Ziffity?

    We believe in de-risking our customers, and hence provide a one-month-performance-check-clause. During the first month of the engagement, if you are not happy with our work, communication or any part of the partnership, you are free to disengage with Ziffity, and you don’t have to pay us anything for the work done so far. In other words, we waive-off your liability to us.

    Ziffity’s expectation from its customers?

    The reason we call our engagement with our customers a partnership is because contributions from both parties are required to make it work. We want our customers to provide the needed time for the project in terms of meetings, inputs, required access to resources, and user acceptance tests.

    Ideally, a single-point-of-contact, so it is easier to coordinate things, maintain a less than 24 hours turnaround on queries, and provide access to required systems/servers. That’s pretty much it is. We’ll take care of the rest of the load.

    Of course, if the job is well done, we would request you to spread a word about Ziffity, and if you are not camera-shy, provide us a video testimonial.
