Compliance-as-code and auto-remediation with Cloud Custodian

Many organizations identify governance and compliance as challenges, and a lack of visibility into cloud infrastructure as a prevalent problem. Companies spend thousands of hours a year maintaining compliance. Automating compliance monitoring and response not only reduces the burden of maintenance, but also increases the visibility across cloud environments. With the increasing cost and human […]

Simplifying serverless best practices with AWS Lambda Powertools Java

Modern applications are increasingly relying on compute platforms based on serverless technologies to provide scalability, cost efficiency, and agility. Distributed architectures have unlocked many benefits, and they have introduced new complexities in how the applications operate. With traditional architectures, debugging was as straightforward as logging into the server and inspecting the logs. Modern observability must […]

Managing compute environments for researchers with Service Workbench on AWS

Through cloud automation, researchers should be able to quickly and securely stand up cloud-based research environments that allow them to shift away from worrying about the technology they are using, and instead focus on their research and collaborating with peers from any institution. Once researchers have secured funding for a project, they must choose from […]

Using open source FHIR APIs with FHIR Works on AWS

In September 2019, we published a blog post, Building a Serverless FHIR Interface on AWS, which explained why customers might want to use FHIR (Fast Healthcare interoperability Resources) as a healthcare interface, and why serverless technology is a cost-efficient and flexible approach to these interfaces. The post explained the basic concepts underpinning FHIR, and how […]

Improving the serverless developer experience with sls-dev-tools

This post was contributed by AWS Serverless Hero Ben Ellerby. One of the most exciting things about serverless is the acceleration it can provide to teams. No longer do you have to invest time in the undifferentiated, heavy lifting of managing the infrastructure of our applications. Instead you can spend time writing code that creates […]

Simplifying serverless best practices with Lambda Powertools

Modern applications are increasingly relying on compute platforms based on containers and serverless technologies to provide scalability, cost efficiency, and agility. Although this shift toward more distributed architectures has unlocked many benefits, it has also introduced new complexity in how the applications are operated. In times past, debugging was as straightforward as logging into the […]

How a startup wants to help secure the open source ecosystem with huntr, a bug bounty board

This article is a guest post from 418sec co-founders Adam Nygate, Jake Mimoni, and Jamie Slome. Dependency on open source code has grown over the years, and as new open source technologies are introduced, so are more vulnerabilities. Review by “many eyes” helps secure open source software, and depends on exposing the code to as […]
