Duo Protects Cloud Access at Amazon re:Invent 2015

Duo will be attending and exhibiting security solutions at the largest cloud computing conference, Amazon re:Invent 2015, hosted at the Venetian in Las Vegas next week, from October 6-8.

We’ll be demoing our advanced two-factor authentication and end user security solutions at booth #1141, Hall C - come by for free swag, demos and to answer any of your questions about our technology.

You can also stop by our booth to ask us about the AWS (Amazon Web Services) Test Drive demoing our two-factor authentication solution. AWS Test Drive lets you learn about third-party enterprise IT solutions by providing a private sandbox environment containing preconfigured server-based solutions. You can also sign up and test Duo Access before full deployment.

Duo provides two-factor authentication methods and a variety of security policies to AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) logins. Duo Security is also an official partner of AWS, providing AWS infrastructure and application protection for SSH, PAM, Open VPN, and web SDKs for Python, Ruby, Java, PHP, Node.js, Classic ASP, ASP.NET and ColdFusion.

This sold out show will bring together more than 17,000 attendees for sessions on cloud architecture, continuous deployment, monitoring and management, performance, security, migration and more.

Attendees will also get experience in full-day technical bootcamps, labs and hackathons, while getting their questions answered by AWS engineering teams and architects, engineers, product leads and expert users.

Here’s a few of the security-focused sessions we’re looking forward to at Amazon re:Invent include:

AWS Security State of the Union
AWS Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer, Stephen Schmidt will discuss how AWS can meet customers’ security and compliance requirements.

IAM Best Practices to Live By
AWS Principle Tech Program Manager, Anders Samuelson will cover best practices to improve your security posture, including:

  • How to manage users and security credentials
  • Delete or regularly rotate root access keys
  • Demonstrate when to choose between using IAM users and roles
  • How to set permissions to grant least privilege access control in your AWS accounts

Architecting for End-to-End Security in the Enterprise
AWS Principal Solutions Architect Bill Shinn will discuss lessons learned from the development of enterprise security strategy, security use-case development, end-to-end security architecture and more.

Architecting for HIPAA Compliance on AWS
Bill Shinn will cover how to architect for HIPAA compliance using AWS, and introduce new AWS services added to the HIPAA program. This session includes testimonials from customers that process and store protected health information (PHI) on AWS, with a focus on how to implement the Technical Safeguards in the HIPAA Security Rule.

Wrangling Security Events in the Cloud
AWS Senior Security Consultant Joshua Du Lac will cover incident response training and tools for cloud security events, including detection, response, recovery and investigation of the root cause.

And a security-focused bootcamp for cloud scaling:

Securing Next-Generation Workloads at Cloud Scale Bootcamp
This is a one-day bootcamp designed to teach security engineers, developers, solutions architects and other technical security practitioners how to design security controls at cloud scale for next-gen workloads.

There will be plenty of after-hours networking events too, including a welcome reception, pub crawl, Harley ride, eating competition, and re:Play party.
