Introducing the Security at the Edge: Core Principles whitepaper
Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently released the Security at the Edge: Core Principles whitepaper. Today’s business leaders know that it’s critical to ensure that both the security of their environments and the security present in traditional cloud networks are extended to workloads at the edge. The whitepaper provides security executives the foundations for implementing a defense in depth strategy for security at the edge by addressing three areas of edge security:
- AWS services at AWS edge locations
- How those services and others can be used to implement the best practices outlined in the design principles of the AWS Well-Architected Framework Security Pillar
- Additional AWS edge services, which customers can use to help secure their edge environments or expand operations into new, previously unsupported environments
Together, these elements offer core principles for designing a security strategy at the edge, and demonstrate how AWS services can provide a secure environment extending from the core cloud to the edge of the AWS network and out to customer edge devices and endpoints. You can find more information in the Security at the Edge: Core Principles whitepaper.
