Amazon Linux AMISecurity in the cloud is more important than ever and is an growing concern for the minds of CISOs. The recent release of CimTrak Version adds enhanced capabilities that support Amazon Cloud Services users of Amazon Linux AMI. This is a continuation of CimTrak’s long-term commitment towards securing cloud-based information technology (IT) infrastructure.

Amazon Cloud Service Dominance

It worth noting that, in fact, Amazon leads the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market with a 40% share of the total space [1]. As was previously mentioned, CimTrak is “cloud friendly” and can help to monitor data stored remotely through cloud services providers such as Amazon. Many of our customers are already utilizing our file integrity monitoring solution to secure their cloud assets. While specific usership numbers for Amazon Cloud Services are murky, it is clear that access to cutting-edge change monitoring software should be a critical concern for that group.

Cloud Coverage Rolls in on the Horizon

According to a recent report published in conjunction between Intuit and Emergent Research, approximately a third of small business are currently engaging cloud services in some way. They propose that by 2020 this figure is set to double [2]. As more businesses migrate to the cloud, protecting sensitive data securely will be vital. In fact, according to a 2013 infographic from Wikibon, 80% of CIO’s were already getting a portion of their IT server infrastructure through the cloud [3]. Enterprise is already there!

If your organization is using AWS to meet infrastructural needs and is concerned with the ability to monitor file integrity locally, consider the CimTrak solution. Agents can be deployed to monitor your remote cloud system and aid in both information security and integrity to give IT staff peace-of-mind.
