Imperva SecureSphere for Amazon Web Services
Safeguard Applications in the Amazon Cloud

 

Amazon Web ServicesOverview:

Organizations all over the world are migrating their IT infrastructure to the cloud. And it's easy to see why. Cloud computing enables organizations like yours to avoid the time and expense of building an on-premise data center. With cloud computing, you can deploy new applications faster, scale your application deployments on demand, and lower operational costs.

If your organization plans to move applications to the cloud, you need to move your application defenses there, too. Otherwise, you could expose your applications to web attacks, data theft, and fraud. Moreover, the cost savings you hoped to realize from cloud computing will evaporate – replaced by expensive breach investigation costs, downtime, and lawsuits.

SecureSphere for Amazon Web Services (AWS) protects applications in the Amazon cloud from web attacks with the industry's leading WAF technology so you can avoid costly data breaches. SecureSphere for AWS combines multiple defenses to accurately pinpoint and block attacks without blocking your customers. Imperva Dynamic Profiling technology automatically builds a "white list" of acceptable user behavior. Imperva Correlated Attack Validation correlates Dynamic Profiling violations with other suspicious activity to block attacks with laser-like precision. SecureSphere is certified by ICSA Labs, satisfies PCI 6.6 compliance, and provides ironclad protection against the OWASP Top Ten.

SecureSphere for AWS is specifically designed to leverage native AWS infrastructure capabilities, such as AWS CloudFormation, so it not only delivers superior WAF capabilities but it scales along with your AWS applications.

Key Capabilities:

  • Protects AWS applications by accurately pinpointing and blocking attacks without blocking your customers
  • Auto scales security with your application so you can fully leverage the benefits of the AWS cloud
  • Virtually patches website vulnerabilities to eliminate costly and time consuming emergency code fix processes
  • Leverages Elastic Load Balancing to distribute traffic loads and route around unhealthy server instances
  • Accelerates deployment with AWS CloudFormation templates

SafeGuard AWS Applications With the Only Enterprise-Class WAF for AWSSafeGuard AWS Applications With the Only Enterprise-Class WAF for AWS

As the market-leading web application firewall, more organizations rely on SecureSphere to protect their critical web applications than any other solution. SecureSphere for AWS is the only enterprise-class WAF for AWS, and provides your business with a practical, highly secure solution to prevent web attacks without blocking your customers. SecureSphere incorporates patented technologies that boost web security accuracy and automate management.

Scale WAF Security Elastically With Your AWS Applications

Extend the scalability benefits of AWS to your Web Application Firewall with SecureSphere. SecureSphere for AWS provides the same elasticity and ease-of-deployment that AWS customers have come to expect from the world’s largest public cloud. SecureSphere for AWS customers can take advantage of important AWS features like CloudFormation, Elastic Load Balancing and CloudWatch.

  • CloudFormation: provides easy deployment, scaling and elasticity. Customers can define network settings and elasticity parameters like scaling groups in different availability zones.
  • Elastic Load Balancing: balances traffic load, detects unavailable instances, and routes around them.
  • CloudWatch: detects critical issues like high CPU or bandwidth utilization, and automatically spawns new WAF instances which then register with the SecureSphere Management Server and synchronize security settings.

Eliminate Downtown With Elastic Load Balancing

SecureSphere integrates with Amazon’s Elastic Load Balancing to handle large traffic loads and boost uptime. Elastic Load Balancing offers fault tolerance by detecting when instances are down, automatically rerouting traffic to available instances in one Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones. With SecureSphere, you can take advantage of native AWS infrastructure capabilities for load balancing and Auto Scaling, which improves availability and streamlines IT operations.

Enjoy Fast Deployment with AWS CloudFormation Automate Disaster Recovery

You can ensure business continuity, even in the event of a natural disaster or site outage. With cloud data centers located around the world, Amazon makes it easy for customers to failover server instances to new physical sites. SecureSphere integrates with key AWS technologies to reroute traffic to different Availability Zones and to support disaster recovery plans.

Enjoy Fast Deployment with AWS CloudFormation

By supporting AWS CloudFormation, you can quickly and easily roll out and scale your SecureSphere for AWS deployment. You can define settings for auto-scaling, Elastic Load Balancing, CloudWatch, network configuration, and more using simple JSON-based templates. With CloudFormation, you can provision SecureSphere for AWS in minutes.

Monitor Web Application Firewall Health Monitor Web Application Firewall Health

By integrating with Amazon CloudWatch, you can track the status of SecureSphere instances and view resource utilization and performance metrics. CloudWatch also detects problems like a sudden spike in throughput or high CPU utilization and can launch new SecureSphere server instances as needed. By supporting Amazon CloudWatch, SecureSphere for AWS helps deliver a single point of visibility into the security, health and performance of your AWS deployment.
