AWS Summit New York: Cybersecurity Live Blog


Several major cybersecurity and managed security services provider (MSSP) announcements are expected today at AWS Summit in New York. Check this live blog frequently for updates throughout the day.

To get things started, we're tracking some new firewall and software security launches that run directly on AWS. Also, we're expecting a range of new third-party security services that safeguard AWS workloads from prying eyes. So what's cooking:

Protecting AWS and On-Premises Workloads

The AWS and third-party updates arrive at a key time. In recent months, multiple AWS customers have failed to properly safeguard workloads running on the public cloud platform. Many of the incidents involved customers that didn't follow basic security best practices when configuring their AWS accounts. The result: Multiple AWS cloud data leaks, all of which weren't necessarily Amazon's fault.

Still, today's news announcements aren't just about AWS security. In fact, many of the new AWS-based tools from third-party ISVs were designed to safeguard customers' on-premises workloads.

Stay tuned for more updates from AWS Summit.
