Remediate Shadow IT Rogue Sites with AWS DevOps Security

There are two kinds of rogue websites: one created by external organizations looking to subvert a legitimate website by appearing to replace it and the second is a website created by an internal team without obtaining proper approvals. Today we will discuss the latter and how AWS DevOps best practices can remediate the issue--as told through the story of a technology organization we recently worked with.

Two Strategies to Ensure Website & Infrastructure Scalability

Whether you are serving consumers visiting your website or internal customers accessing infrastructure services, customers want the ability to access what they want when they want it. As a result, scalable architecture is top of mind for many organizations -- especially those who face peaks in traffic and must be able to effectively service it. Designing for scalability, the ability to handle large amounts of traffic and service it gracefully, without degradation of performance or downtime, is an essential component of successful service delivery.

Ease of Use, Hybrid Cloud are Banner Themes at AWS re:Invent 2016

At re:Invent 2016 Werner Vogels, AWS CTO, donned a Transformer shirt to tell us we can be Transformers. And, Andy Jassy, AWS CEO, emphasized in his presentation that we can all be superheroes, with superpowers.

Now that the first wave of innovators and early adopters have moved their workloads to the cloud, we are seeing majority, more pragmatist organizations, migrating to the cloud. However, unlike early movers who were willing to navigate the complexity of AWS tools and technology, this second wave of organizations puts a higher premium on ease-of-use. Given that, let’s look at how AWS has done just this through our lens of operations, DevOps and Security.
