Three AWS re:Invent Sessions You Shouldn’t Miss

From December 2nd – 6th, the Sands Expo in Las Vegas will be filled with 50,000+ engineers, admins, developers, architects, and other technologists. Why? Because it’s none other than the biggest AWS event of the year – AWS re:Invent! 

Aporeto is excited to be attending again this year and looking forward to showcasing our latest solutions for AWS EKS and Cloud Privileged Access Management. Stop by booth #2033 to see our latest demos. You can also book a time to meet with us 1:1 here.


Aporeto & AWS Through the Years

Over the past several years, Aporeto has had a strong relationship with AWS. Our Zero Trust Cloud Security Platform provides AWS and AWS hybrid cloud environments with many unique benefits. In the second quarter of this year, Aporeto was recognized by AWS as a key enabler in bridging distributed on-premises and AWS workloads for centralized visibility, management, and migration. 

Acknowledging Aporeto as a leader in using application identity, not IP addresses for comprehensive cloud network security, AWS has cited our Cloud Identity Framework as a tool that “seamlessly and securely bridges Amazon Web Services with private infrastructures.” You can check out the Aporeto Cloud Identity Framework  and sign-up for a demo here. All our cloud security solutions can also be found on AWS Marketplace.


AWS re:Invent Activities to Watch Out For

Everyone at Aporeto is excited to be a sponsor at re:Invent and for the show Expo kick-off starting at 4pm on Mon., Dec. 2nd! The schedule is packed, but here are three conference activities we think you won’t want to miss:


Protecting Your Web Applications from Common Attack Vectors (ARC348-R)

Monday, Dec 2, 10:45 AM – 1:00 PM

– Mirage, Grand Ballroom G

This workshop will be led by Heitor Vital, Solutions Architect, and Lalit Grover, AWS Solutions Builder at AWS. In this workshop, attendees can learn best practices for architecting web applications to block the most attack patterns that affect application security. The speakers will use a compromised web application, along with tools such as the AWS WAF Security Automations solution. After this, they will build, train, and deploy a machine learning model to identify abnormal behaviors.


Security vulnerability identification and remediation (ARC319-R)

Monday, Dec 2, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM

– Mirage, Events Center C1 – Table 9

This builders session will be led by Solutions Architect Collin Forrester. Through this session you can learn how to monitor, alert, and remediate security events in your AWS environments. With the use of the AWS CloudFormation template, you can get introduced to a number of issues into the account, including unencrypted and public S3 buckets, open security groups, and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) accounts without MFA enabled. After that, attendees can practice monitoring, alerting, and automatic remediation for these issues using AWS Config, AWS Security Hub, and AWS Lambda. Do bring your laptop during this session.


Comparing Serverless and Containers (ARC201-R)

Tuesday, Dec 3, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

– Aria, Level 2 East, Mariposa 1

This chalk talk will be led by Mayank Thakkar, AWS Global Life Sciences Solutions Architect, and Josh Kahn, Solutions Architect. Microservices are a great way to segment your application into well-defined, self-contained units of functionality. In this chalk talk, the two speakers will discuss two common architectures for deploying microservices: containers and a serverless architecture.
