With the expanding scale of modern networks, security teams often face challenges around maintaining control and visibility across multiple virtual private clouds (VPCs) and network segments. Software-defined networks (SDNs) provide centralized management of your cloud fabric, enabling higher granularity of control over north-south and east-west traffic flows between VPCs. This allows for the selective blocking of potentially malicious inbound and outbound traffic while continuing the flow of normal traffic. Leveraging SDN fabrics alongside solutions such as cloud-based firewalls and tools such as VPC Flow Logs can enhance traffic visibility and control while upholding your security posture.

In this webinar, SANS and AWS Marketplace provide guidance on creating and implementing a policy-driven SDN architecture in the cloud. Additionally, they will present real-world use cases of successful implementations that have been deployed in Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments.

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS senior instructor and cloud security expert Dave Shackleford.

Join this webinar to learn how to:

  • Build a control stack of cloud-native and third-party controls to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their network assets
  • Use a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and cloud security-as-a-service to provide edge security in a unified network fabric
  • Leverage infrastructure-as-code for automation and management of infrastructure
  • Apply best practices to secure a software-defined data center

Who Should Attend?

Security practitioners (Security Analysts, Security Architects, Senior Security Engineers, etc.), Cloud Security Architects, and the office of the CISO.
