As an Amazon Consulting Partner with a proven focus on cyber security Blue Cube Security can help design, architect, build, migrate, manage and secure your workloads and applications on your Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Architecture.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re working to achieve compliance or have a simple web application hosting critical data we can help.

Cloud Security is of the highest Priority for AWS

Security is a core functional requirement that protects mission-critical information from accidental or deliberate theft, leakage, integrity compromise, and deletion.

Under the AWS shared responsibility model, AWS provides a secure global secure infrastructure and foundation compute, storage, networking and database services, as well as higher level services.

AWS customers are responsible for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their data in the cloud, and for meeting specific business requirements for information protection.

Shared Responsibility Model

Security and Compliance is a shared responsibility between AWS and the Customer. This model can help relieve customer’s operational burden as AWS operates, manages and controls the components. The customer assumes responsibility and management of the guest operating system (including updates and security patches), other associated application software as well as the configuration of the AWS provided security group firewall.

As shown in the chart below, this differentiation of responsibility is commonly referred to as Security “of” the Cloud versus Security “in” the Cloud.

Addressing the Shared Responsibility Model

Enterprises must take a new approach to ensure secure use of cloud services and fulfill their obligations under the shared responsibility model. The traditional approach of relying on firewalls, proxies, and other solutions to secure the perimeter of the enterprise network doesn’t apply to cloud services.

Given these conditions, enterprises often lack the resources to fulfill their part of the shared responsibility model.

This is where Blue Cube Security can assist you. You can leverage our proven knowledge, experience and technical capabilities to ensure you’re fully protected across your cloud architecture.

Our solutions are tightly coupled with your business-critical services, our Cloud Security Services and offerings represent much-needed solutions to address the shared responsibility model as enterprise adoption of cloud services continues to accelerate.

Enterprises are turning to us to deliver cloud-based security services to fill the gaps they cannot afford or have the necessary skill sets to deliver themselves. This means that our customers can automate fulfillment of their end of the shared responsibility model.

Cloud Security Services

Security Strategy and Architecture

Blue Cube Security’s architects and engineers have years of operational experience in cloud, security, and enterprise IT. We can offer a diverse array of cloud engineering services, to include special projects, vulnerability management, systems hardening, cloud security governance, DevOps integration, systems design, and more.

Secure Visibility Assessments

Organisations are often surprised to discover how many sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud applications are in use across their environment. Furthermore, they usually lack the technology to control the usage of those cloud services or the data stored therein. The Security Visibility Assessment provides customers with a detailed look into the actual cloud usages in their enterprise as well as mitigation strategies to secure data within sanctioned services and control data in unsanctioned services.

Security Health Check

The Security Health Check provides a detailed architectural review of your AWS Cloud architecture. Our architects and consultants work with organisations to understand the operational needs of their cloud environments. We then assess their current security posture to provide relevant and actionable remediation efforts to better secure the client’s cloud environment.
