Benefits of CloudHelm Security
At CloudHelm, cloud security is the highest priority. Our data centers and network architecture are built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) is a security control tool; it inspects traffic for vulnerabilities and exploits within the network stream and can remove packets before they reach your applications. It can also act as a protocol enforcing tool by ensuring each packet you are accepting is correct for that application. For example, you can allow any HTTPS packet that comes in on 443, but also block any non-HTTPS packets like SSH on the same port. This allows you do to additional enforcement of the traffic for multiple protocols on the same network port.
Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a visibility tool; it can alert an administrator on patterns within traffic while allowing the traffic to pass through to the application. This allows you to create IDS rules to give additional information about the traffic being accepted into your environment. For example, you might have an IDS rule to inspect SSL ciphers from servers communicating with you to ensure they are following compliance mandates and security policies. It is a powerful tool for giving in depth information without impacting your applications.
A penetration test, or pen-test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies.
CloudHelm can help you create more comprehensive solutions to security problems, everything from strategic advice, deployments, to re-engineering your security processes.
At CloudHelm, we have the expertise to help assess an organization’s overall security posture and risk including governance, policies, and procedures. We also assess the implementation, maintenance, and monitoring of the services involved. This helps us determine whether or not the currentsecurity infrastructure supports the overall IT and business strategy, protects critical information assets, and complies with regulatory, contractual, and legal requirements. An annual, formal risk assessment is required by many standards, such as PCI, HIPAA, and others, to be compliant.
