AWS cloud security

AWS Security
AWS partner since 2011

Understand your shared responsibility with Amazon.

Your AWS resources are not automatically protected.


shared responsibility model AWS securityLots of companies assume that Amazon AWS includes comprehensive security. It doesn’t. The Amazon slide shows the AWS shared responsibility model. It’s very clear that your IT assets need to be protected by you.

Research shows that:

– 97% of breaches use known vulnerabilities
– 94% of compromised data involves servers
– 92% of incidents discovered by a third party

We researched 5000 AWS infrastructures and found that an incredible 22% were configured for insecure logins. 

Security as a Service

Most security systems react to attacks. We prevent attacks happening.


proactive protection for AWS security

We monitor every component of your cloud network 24/7 for the latest vulnerabilities.

Fighting attacks on your assets can be resource intensive. And when you’re defending your system there’s no guarantee of success. Plus it’s a huge distraction.

At Outpost24 we take the view that it’s better to close all vulnerabilities so intruders are deterred. Continuous vulnerabilities assessment is the most important task to be performed as the foundation of your security perimeter.

Only Elastic Workload Protector builds an efficient, adaptive and continuously updated line of defense around your environment and provides barriers to known weaknesses exploited by hackers.

Dynamic Inventory’ automatically checks new assets and tracks shadow-IT.

As your cloud assets evolve, our cloud solution keeps up.


auto discovery AWS securityAs your business and IT infrastructure evolves, Elastic Workload Protector monitors your AWS environment continuously for IaaS best security compliance and vulnerabilities. Now you can replicate existing assets or install new ones with peace of mind.

Our patented technology automatically starts security testing the auto-discovered infrastructure and assets, including VMs and Security Groups.

From virtual servers to website applications, Elastic Workload Protector keeps you covered. Any new servers are immediately detected and kept under surveillance without configuration, and there’s no agent to install so our solution runs itself.

Even dormant instances are checked, as these can provide ‘side door’ access to your resources when they are re-started.

Every day we update the Elastic Workload Protector threat tests database … and you are immediately informed about any risks that we discover.

Only Elastic Workload Protector can test a clone of your AWS assets.

Helps performance all round … plus unique dormant machine benefits.


AWS security solutionSome cloud security systems have an overhead that can impact the performance of your IT resources. But Elastic Workload Protector has zero effect because we offer the option to run a full vulnerability audit on clones of your cloud virtual machine instances.

Cloning allows searching and analyzing deeper than any other product, without the risk of damage to, or performance degradation of the production instance.

Importantly, our clone-and-test technology can also be used to check dormant virtual machines. Elastic Workload Protector will safely wake up and test the clone, so the virtual machine is safe from the moment you switch it back on.

This is especially important where dormant instances are used as a template for new virtual machines. Without Elastic Workload Protector you would simply be replicating any vulnerabilities throughout the organization.

Identify the 3 main Security risks in IaaS Cloud

Secure your AWS infrastructure right now


CIS benchmark AWS cloud security1- Eliminate cloud misconfiguration and check for hardening best practices
By running security checks against your cloud infrastructure, we can check your compliance with standards and check for misconfigurations with the following best practices:

  • The CIS Security Benchmarks provides vendor-agnostic, consensus-based best practices to help organizations assess and improve their security.
  • The Cloud Security Alliance Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) is specifically designed to provide fundamental security principles to guide cloud vendors and to assist prospective cloud customers in assessing the overall security risk of a cloud provider.

2- Be the first to spot vulnerabilities in your workloads
While vulnerability management is a must-have in traditional or cloud environments, workloads change more rapidly in the cloud. Our approach allows for more recurring scans, full automation, and deeper analysis, the DevOps way.

3- Identify Shadow Workloads
Our continuous analysis checks workloads installed within IT and make a comprehensive inventory. The CISO gains complete visibility into all cloud services in use.
