JHC Integrates AWS CloudTrail

JHC Technology has integrated Amazon Web Services' CloudTrail as a best practice for all our AWS solutions.  AWS CloudTrail is a fully managed web service that provides increased visibility into a customer's cloud solution and user activity by recording the API calls on that customer's account.  JHC utilizes CloudTrail to perform the following services in order to provide enhanced security for our AWS customers:

·        CloudTrail is the first service activated on new AWS accounts to ensure every API call is captured from the onset of the account.

·        JHC configures CloudTrail to capture both regional and Global API calls while preventing duplicate global events in the logs.

·        JHC deploys custom Identity and Access Management (IAM) permission policies on CloudTrail to prevent unauthorized access to logs.

·        JHC Enables versioning and logging on CloudTrail S3 buckets for added protection.

·        JHC deploys and configures Splunk Enterprise Instance inside customer's Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and integrates Splunk with CloudTrail in order to gain additional insight into security related activities.

·        JHC creates custom notifications on CloudTrail S3 bucket to immediately notify customers when objects stored are lost.
