Security Groups got you down? Get Security Flow!

| | | 0 comments

Here at Foghorn Consulting, we’ve been designing, implementing, and managing point to point security with AWS security groups for years.  Security groups allow an amazingly granular method of controlling communications between instances without being bound to using networks as filter.  This allows us to design flat networks while still creating very granular and tightly controlled communications.

But with great power comes great responsibility.

We’ve seen many environments where many individuals have the capability of adding and modifying security groups.  After several years of organic change, it becomes difficult to really understand what all of those rules are doing.

Visualize your Rules with Security Flow

 

To help our customers to overcome this challenge, we’ve recently released a new feature in our AWS re-seller portal, available for free to all of our AWS direct customers.  It’s called Security Flow.  With Security Flow, you can instantly generate a visual representation of the security posture of your VPC.  It’s great for audits, design sessions, and even troubleshooting connectivity issues.
