Securing your Amazon Web Services (AWS) datacenter

Cloud Computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. Cloud Computing providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) own and maintain the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application. Network Security Platform can currently be deployed in the AWS environment.

Note: The vNSP solutions consists of the Network Security Manager and the Virtual IPS Sensor. Functionality of each of these components are as follows:
  • Network Security Manager — It is the same web based user interface that is used to manage the Virtual IPS Sensor and Virtual Security System. You can create and manage policies against attacks detected by the Sensors.
  • Virtual IPS Sensor — This is the Network Security Sensor that protects the network against harmful attacks. It inspects the traffic and generates alerts in the Network Security Manager in case of attacks.
