Today we released the Fugue Best Practices Framework to help software engineering teams identify and remediate the kinds of dangerous cloud resource misconfigurations used in recent data breaches that aren’t addressed by common compliance frameworks (see A Technical Analysis of the Capital One Cloud Misconfiguration Breach).
Cloud computing platforms like Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are powerful because we can program them to respond to our application requirements automatically. Engineers can innovate really fast, spinning resources up and down on demand, and we only pay for what we use.
In part two of the Cloud Network Security blog series, we will discuss two methods of securing your network within Amazon Web Services: security groups and network access control lists (NACLs). Both resource types act as a virtual firewall to protect your network, and they have some similarities. For example, security groups and NACLs both use.
