AWS Cloud  Migration Case Study

Challenges

The client had to comply with strict National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) compliance regarding security standards and controls. They also wanted to build a rich web & mobile application to improve their reach and response across the globe.

The client also wanted a document management system with task workflow and task management system for recording the data in the digital format.

There were reported issues where the business users were not able to connect to their internal applications while working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic because the current Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) setup did not have a secured method to connect from home.

Solution

The client embarked on their digital journey by consulting with Datamatics and leveraging AWS cloud. Datamatics proposed a multi-fold approach to support the client in achieving the desired outcome.

Datamatics helped define the right architecture with Multi-AZ and devops pipeline to support the client's release management for both dev & production AWS accounts.

AWS environment hardening was executed by leveraging CIS scripts, to ensure best practices for security while setting up the cloud environment. The multi-account strategy was incorporated to separate production and non-production environment by migrating server across accounts.

AWS CloudTrail and CloudWatch were enabled to get almost real-time updates on the security and operational events generated by the AWS environment and instances.

Amazon GuardDuty was used as threat detection service to continuously monitor for malicious activity and unauthorized behavior.
