Exponential growth – that’s the trend at AWS re:Invent. The number of participants in Las Vegas last week was close to 19,000, almost 40% more than last year. But even more impressive than the numbers, it was the buzz from all the new announcements from AWS and 400 partner sponsors that built momentum. New developments ranged from IoT, analytics, mobile, compute through management tools.
Under the Security and Identity umbrella, AWS unveiled WAF, a web application firewall that helps protect your web applications. In addition, AWS previewed Amazon Inspector with its ability to automatically assess applications for vulnerabilities or deviations from best practices during application deployment.
The 40Cloud team talked their socks off, demonstrating the cool new SIEM and IDS features, in addition to showing how our Network Security-as-a-Service solution protects your cloud and hybrid deployments. Especially relevant for AWS customers is the new AMI available on the AWS Marketplace, making 40Cloud setup just about effortless. With our new status as an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, AWS users can rest assured that 40Cloud provides a respected, well-integrated solution for their AWS cloud with outstanding support.
40Cloud’s FOR REAL shirts (featuring the Chubby Unicorn and other characters) worked their own magic, attracting people to our booth for one of these fashion statements. They were gobbled up so quickly that the hard working team in Israel didn’t even get a leftover XXL . Check out these impromptu shots of people proudly displaying their new apparel:
Datapipe, whose Auth 2F authentication integrates with 40Cloud’s identity management to secure AWS environments, hosted a Lightening Talk by our CTO, Amir Naftali. Here you can see a photo of Amir as he walks through the technical details of our joint 2-Factor Secure Cloud Access Solution for AWS.
