Understanding the Shared Security Responsibility in the Cloud

Whether you are using cloud providers, such as AWS and Microsoft Azure, to host your sensitive applications and data or taking advantage of the speed that Microsoft Office 365, Dropbox, and other cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers offer, you have a role to play in cloud security.

AWS Shared Responsibility

Security and Compliance is a shared responsibility between AWS and you, the customer.

The shared model can help relieve your operational burden as AWS operates, manages and controls the components from the host operating system and virtualisation layer down to the physical security of the facilities in which the service operates.

AWS Responsibility “Security of the Cloud”

AWS is responsible for protecting the infrastructure that runs all of the services offered in the AWS Cloud. This infrastructure is composed of the hardware, software, networking, and facilities that run AWS Cloud services.

Customer Responsibility “Security in the Cloud”

Customer responsibility will be determined by the AWS Cloud services that a customer selects. This determines the amount of configuration work you must perform as part of your security responsibilities.

Cloud One™ - Conformity

Awarded both AWS Cloud Management Tools Competency and Security Partner Competency, Trend Micro Cloud One™ – Conformity’s security and governance platform delivers continuous assurance that your infrastructure is compliant, secure, and optimised.

You can pull instant compliance reports for major, global standards such as the AWS Well-Architected Framework, HIPAA, PCI DSS, GDPR, and CIS (Center for Internet Security).

Real-Time Threat Monitoring provides instant threat alerts, tracking at the user and event levels, paired with a highly actionable dashboard to address critical vulnerabilities, immediately. Connected to the open-source Auto-Remediation framework, high-risk policies can be instantly detected, and corrected, freeing engineers to build with peace of mind.

The Knowledge Base is built on the AWS Well-Architected Framework with clear, step-by-step remediation rules actionable through both the AWS Console and CLI (command-line interface). Each rule includes the rationale to encourage continuous best practice as your company commits deeper to the Cloud.

Why Conformity

Workload Security provides:

  • IPS and IDS
  • Integrity Monitoring
  • Firewall
  • Anti-malware
  • Log Inspection and Content Filtering

Trend Micro
Cloud One™ - File Storage Security

Cloud-native application architectures incorporate cloud file/object storage services into their workflow, creating a new attack vector where they are vulnerable to malicious files.

File Storage Security protects the workflow through innovative techniques, such as malware scanning, integration into your custom workflows, and broad cloud storage platform support – freeing you to go further and do more.

Why File Storage Security

Insightful Scanning

Take advantage of faster automated malware scanning via the latest file reputation and variant protection technologies, backed by leading threat research.

  • File reputation: Block known-bad files with anti-malware signatures
  • Variant protection: Look for obfuscated or polymorphic variants of malware via fragments of previously seen malware and detection algorithms
  • Extensive flexibility: Trusted scanning support for small to large files, and support for various types of file
  • Advanced intel: Thirty years of cyber threat research and experience

Flexible Integration

Deploy in minutes and start protecting your organisation’s downstream workflows from upstream risks.

  • Automates file scanning to be triggered whenever new files are uploaded
  • Deploys using cloud deployment templates
  • Enables workflow integration through serverless functions
  • Provides the option to be deployed as a centralised service managed by a security team

Secure Cloud Storage Data

Maintain data sovereignty with security designed for your Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets and Microsoft Azure Blob storage.

Trend Micro Cloud One™ - Application Security

Application Security minimises design and deployment risks by protecting against sophisticated hacks from inside the application. 

Optimised for modern application architectures, Application Security immediately blocks unwanted activity in real-time to protect data and business logic. 

Application Security lets you monitor and review exploitation attempts across an unlimited number of applications. Attack details are propagated across your infrastructure, meaning, if an attack is detected on one application, it is immediately flagged on every app server and for every monitored app in your account.

Application Security also gives your developers full visibility into how the vulnerability in your code would have been exploited, including a stack trace down to the line of code (where relevant), reporting of request parameters, and how your app’s behavior would have been modified.

Why Application Security

Automatic Protection

When your app is exposed to a malicious attack, the agent identifies the attacker, type of attack, and blocks it. User data is protected, and you have the insight you need to fix the coding vulnerabilities.

No Code Changes Required

The self-contained Application Security agent runs inside the process of your application without
requiring any code changes in the application itself.

Secure Your Customers' Data

Application Security is designed specifically to secure web assets in the cloud and within local
networks, protecting your customers’ data and your business.

Experience Faster Results

Deploy Security as Code into applications in only two minutes, with no additional code changes or rules to set up.

Improve Developer Productivity

Spend more time delighting your customers with a great application and less time on tedious maintenance caused by coding oversights and weaknesses in dependencies.
