Boost Cloud Workload Security with Red Hat and AWS

Red Hat and AWS provide hybrid environment solutions for your cloud deployments

Businesses worldwide continue to add highly connected public cloud resources to their IT environments, with 37% citing cloud as a top priority for technology investment in 2019.1 Cloud adoption has many benefits, including improved resilience, reduced cost of ownership, and greater infrastructure and business agility.

Even so, many organizations remain concerned about providing adequate security and privacy for applications and data in cloud environments. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) identified some of the top security threats to cloud computing as:2

  • Data breaches.
  • Misconfiguration and inadequate change control.
  • Lack of cloud security architecture and strategy.
  • Insufficient identity, credential, and access management.
  • Insecure interfaces and application programming interfaces (APIs).
  • Limited cloud use visibility

Application and data protection in cloud environments depends on the underlying hardware and software. Choosing the right cloud infrastructure can alleviate security threats and help protect your applications and data. Together, Red Hat and Amazon Web Services (AWS) deliver hybrid environment solutions that effectively address these security concerns.
