Our AWS Cloud Services
The AWS Platform is the most secure and compliant habitat for sensitive data and workloads; we leverage the AWS platform to provide these benefits to our customers.
We work with organisations to understand their regulatory, industry, business, and best practices requirements for Cloud. We then architect, design, implement and manage Cloud systems to ensure that such requirements have been met, and maintained throughout their lifetime. Typical compliance requirements in the Cloud include:
Regulatory: EU Directive 95/46/EC and GDPR; Personal Data Protection
Industry: PCI/DSS, ISO 27001, C5, SOC1/SOC/SOC3, CSA Star, COBIT
Business: MiFID 2, Basel III, SoX, FCA Compliance, Bafin Compliance
Best Practices: AWS Best Practices, AWS Well-architected, AWS CAF Security Pillar, Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks
Security Audit and Gap Analysis
Once we understand your compliance requirements, we carry out detailed gap analysis against regulatory, industry, business, and best practices requirements to provide point-in-time, real time, and historical posture assessment to aid the purposes of stringent security requirements, as well as internal and external audits of Cloud systems.
We provide detailed remediation recommendations, and normally – automate the implementation process to ensure timely, consistent, and continuous protection of information assets.
We engineer a wide range of security solutions in the Cloud, including native and conventional firewall solutions, threat management solutions, Security Information & Event Management systems, cryptographic solutions, and HSMs.
Secure CI/CD in the Cloud
We design, implement and manage secure CI/CD solutions in the Cloud by following the principles of Infrastructure as Code (IaC), Immutable Infrastructure, and DevSecOps. For many customers, we establish the collaborative organisational culture that is required to underpin a cloud native operating model. We establish the processes and procedures that are required to utilise cloud native tooling; it is one thing to have an array of powerful technology, but it is imperative that this technology is harnessed through a series of rigorous standards aligned to best practice. Finally, we deploy the technology and tooling that enables new application code and infrastructure components to be deployed and scaled rapidly. This combined approach to modernising people, process and technology, ensures that our customers can operate with much greater speed and freedom than is possible with their existing technology stack.
Managed Security and Compliance Services
Our managed security services provide our customers with our knowledge and experience in Cloud security around the clock, 24x7. Our extensive set of proactive and reactive managed security and compliance services ranges all the way from Cloud compliance and real time posture assessment, through Single-Sign on in the Cloud, to Security Information and Event Management, and automated incident response.
We work with organisations from all sectors, including Financial Services, Media, Independent Software Vendors, Retail, Manufacturing and Public Sector. Whilst the industries our customers reside within vary, the common denominator amongst them all, is that they require a capable Partner to transform their business and brand critical workloads for AWS and subsequently provide a high touch continuous engagement, to ensure that their environments are running in the most effective manner. HeleCloud’s Professional Services team takes our customers on the journey to cloud native, where automation increases speed and reduces risk. We also offer them the benefits of HeleCloud proactive on-going Managed Services.
With our strong experience in operating within regulated industries, where security and compliance are fundamental to the success of the organisation, HeleCloud is recognised as a leading Partner to reduce risk on our customers behalf.
To complement the services outlined above, HeleCloud offer AWS Well-Architected, AWS Cloud Security, and AWS DevOps Review and Remediation packages. We work with many organisations that are already sizeable users of AWS, but require assistance in certain areas, such as architecture, security or cost. Inline with the AWS Well-Architected Framework, these packaged offerings examine the existing architecture, configuration and standards in use today and gap analysis these against best practice. Following this initial assessment, we review the findings with our customer, present recommendations for improvements and execute these remediations to fill the existing gaps and ensure alignment to AWS best practice.
