Amazon Web Services’ infrastructure includes:
- administrative staff
- operations staff, and
- physical data centres
CX Index is able to addresses security risks across its infrastructure with:
- continuous intrusion detection
- prevention systems
- denial of service attack prevention
- regular penetration testing, and
- forensic tools
that help identify and mitigate threats.
24-hour monitored physical security
The datacenters we use are physically constructed, managed, and monitored 24 hours a day to shelter data and services from unauthorized access as well as environmental threats.
Monitoring and logging
Centralized monitoring, correlation, and analysis systems manage the large amount of information generated by devices within CX Index’s cloud platform environment, providing continuous visibility and timely alerts to the teams that manage the service.
Security patches help protect systems from known vulnerabilities. Integrated deployment systems manage the distribution and installation of security updates for the CX Index service.
Antimalware is built-in to Cloud Services to help identify and remove viruses, spyware and other malicious software and provide real time protection.
Intrusion detection/Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense
AWS uses standard detection and mitigation techniques such as SYN cookies, rate limiting, and connection limits to protect against DDoS attacks. The AWS DDoS defense system is designed to withstand attacks from outside the system as well as attacks staged by other customers.
AWS conducts regular penetration testing to improve AWS security controls and processes. CX Index is also able to carry out authorized penetration testing on the CX Index platform hosted in AWS.
