Panasonic Avionics Uses Amazon GuardDuty and AWS Security Hub for Security and Compliance
Panasonic Avionics is a leading supplier of in-flight entertainment and communications solutions for airlines. When demand increased for more digitized solutions, the company faced a major obstacle: it wasn’t in the cloud. The company was hardware centric, working with infrastructure in on-premises data centers. More challenging, it had no means of analyzing that data, and storage capacity limits meant the company had to delete it every 3 months, leaving no opportunity for long-term analytics.
“We needed a digital transformation,” says Anand Desikan, head of platform services at Panasonic Avionics. “We needed to transform ourselves from a hardware vendor to a digital solutions provider.” The transformation would require migrating all the company’s sensitive data—on passengers, manufacturers, airline partners, ground systems, and more—to the cloud, so meeting strict security and compliance requirements would be vital.
Panasonic Avionics needed a solution that could help it execute the transformation and keep the new cloud data infrastructure secure and compliant. So it approached Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Partner SecureKloud Technologies, which specializes in enterprise cloud transformation in highly regulated industries, to assist.
On the whole, we are saving 86% on infrastructure by running on AWS compared to physical data centers.”
