Infrastructure Security - Introduction to AWS Security

Infrastructure Security

AWS provides several security capabilities and services to increase privacy and control network access. These include:

  • Network firewalls built into Amazon VPC let you create private networks and control access to your instances or applications. Customers can control encryption in transit with TLS across AWS services.

  • Connectivity options that enable private, or dedicated, connections from your office or on-premises environment.

  • DDoS mitigation technologies that apply at layer 3 or 4 as well as layer 7. These can be applied as part of application and content delivery strategies.

  • Automatic encryption of all traffic on the AWS global and regional networks between AWS secured facilities.
