Public Cloud Segmentation

76 Launches
Solution Overview
As organizations outsource and look to abstract infrastructure management to focus on what they do best, public cloud providers are booming.   As these organizations migrate to public cloud, Enterprise Segmentation is just as important to securing public cloud environments as it is on-prem.  This lab uses an Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment to illustrate the fundamentals of this type of public cloud segmentation. AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 165 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers —including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile, and lower costs.  AWS has built-in segmentation mechanisms such as AWS Security Groups to make this effort as easy as possible.

Goals & Objectives

This on-demand lab will walk a user through one method of incorporating built-in AWS fundamental segmentation constructs such as security groups into their cloud network design to enhance security and meet governance and compliance requirements. 

Once complete, the user should have a better understanding of how to do segmentation in the cloud and give them ideas and tools to further innovate and customize for their use cases and environments.

In summary, in this lab you will:
  • Learn AWS networking fundamentals
  • Walk through built-in AWS segmentation controls in a live app environment

Hardware & Software

The lab consists of the following components:
  •   1 x Windows JumpBox
  •   2 x AWS VPC
  •   1 Basic Simulated Medical Imaging Multi-Tier App (using AWS instances)
