  • Five Connectivity and Security Use Cases for Azure VNets
    Five Connectivity and Security Use Cases for Azure VNets
    Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: Oct 31 2018 51 mins
    As you complete your plans for moving IT infrastructure and application workloads to Azure, it’s important to understand what connectivity and security services Microsoft includes by default – and what’s missing.

    Though Azure comes with baseline capabilities, it’s still up to you to choose judiciously among many Azure-native and third-party options to address unique requirements. This session explores use cases, such as encrypting traffic between VNets holding sensitive data, remote user access to VNets, multi-cloud connectivity, and filtering egress traffic to the Internet.

    As part of our fact-filled Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, cover the questions you should be asking: what are the key issues that matter, what does Microsoft provide, and what’s missing? These questions are addressed for each of the five most common use cases:

    - On-prem to VNet
    - VNet to VNet
    - VNet to Internet (Egress)
    - User to VNet
    - VNet to AWS VPC

    They then demonstrate how a software-defined approach can deliver simplified and unified control over cloud routing, embracing both Azure-native and third-party services.

  • Network Troubleshooting in the Cloud: Tools, Techniques and Gotchas
    Network Troubleshooting in the Cloud: Tools, Techniques and Gotchas
    Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: Oct 11 2018 48 mins
    When someone reports an EC2 connectivity failure, what do you do? Open your Amazon VPC Console, launch an SSH session, and start typing CLI commands in search of clues.

    Common root causes include problems related to:

    - Route table updates
    - Phantom network ACLs
    - Security policies
    - Missing BGP routes
    - Overfilling route tables or summarization mistakes

    Moreover, in many cases, networking is not an issue, but valuable time is lost eliminating the network as a cause before you can progress. Unfortunately, AWS does not natively provide the visibility and troubleshooting features needed by CloudOps and DevOps teams to identify and resolve problems quickly.

    As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, show you how to get on top of these issues and achieve operational readiness. They also demo tools that give you visibility, simplify troubleshooting, and alert you when issues are detected.

  • Security Requirements for Controlling VPC-to-Internet Egress Traffic
    Security Requirements for Controlling VPC-to-Internet Egress Traffic
    Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: Aug 30 2018 49 mins
    There are legitimate reasons why AWS VPCs or Azure VNets need Internet access; for example, to receive software updates from vendors or integrate with native AWS services or third-party SaaS services. But this is substantially different from an on-premises use case, where traditional, full-featured firewalls are needed to filter co-mingled end-user traffic and application traffic. And while AWS provides a NAT gateway, it can be configured only on a per-VPC basis against a limited number of IP addresses.

    As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, examine the security and networking requirements for controlling VPC egress traffic – including a discussion of different approaches for establishing a shared services VPC – and what capabilities AWS offers natively. We also review and demonstrate a software-defined approach to egress security that helps avoid the complexity and expense of on-prem firewalls and the limitations of AWS NAT gateways by providing:

    - Centralized control that enables policy assignment instantly across one VPC – or hundreds
    - Flexible Layer 7 domain whitelisting that eliminates native AWS IP address limitations
    - Methods for filtering on both HTTP and HTTPS traffic and utilizing whitelists and blacklists
    - Integration with standard reporting and event correlation tools

  • Securely Connecting Your Customers to Their Cloud-Hosted App – In Minutes
    Securely Connecting Your Customers to Their Cloud-Hosted App – In Minutes
    Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: Jun 11 2018 50 mins
    Whether your cloud applications are multi-tenanted SaaS solutions or standalone instances hosted for individual customers, ensuring reliable and secure VPC connectivity poses a variety of challenges. Within minutes of signing up a new customer, your operations team will be expected to:

    - Build IPsec tunnels to, for example, support API connectivity or secure data as it moves between an on-premises database and the hosted app.
    - Provision your customers’ administrative and end users with easy yet secure app access.
    - Ensure internal teams have secure access to perform maintenance and support.

    Now imagine doing all that for dozens of customers… or hundreds… or thousands. Not to mention your DevOps team, which needs isolated development and QA instances from which to build and deploy ongoing releases.

    As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, review the security and operational requirements for implementing automated VPC networking to meet customer expectations while enabling your own internal teams to do their work both inside and separate from customer instances.

  • Secure Remote Access to AWS: Why OpenVPN & Jump Hosts Aren’t Enough
    Secure Remote Access to AWS: Why OpenVPN & Jump Hosts Aren’t Enough
    Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: May 14 2018 48 mins
    OpenVPN is a popular and respected solution for enabling remote access to AWS VPCs for IT personnel, cloud developers, and a wide variety of end-user roles. While OpenVPN may be all that is needed to enable cloud access for a few users, it alone cannot meet the needs of growing organizations – particularly those that have security or compliance requirements. Similarly, Bastion hosts or jump hosts are often used when AWS is primarily focused on developers, but these tools likewise have scaling and security limitations.

    As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, review key requirements and compare the remote user VPN options available for managing and securing access to AWS VPC resources. They also demonstrate features that ensure your remote access tools and methodology are “enterprise cloud-ready.”

  • Securing Your AWS Global Transit Network: Are You Asking the Right Questions?
    Securing Your AWS Global Transit Network: Are You Asking the Right Questions?
    Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: May 3 2018 47 mins
    In evaluating the security posture for your Global Transit Network, your first question might be: Why do I even need additional security? Isn’t what Amazon provides “out of the box” adequate? This is not the right question to ask first. It’s important to appreciate that, while Amazon says it has a shared security model, your Amazon EC2 instance may not meet your security requirements “by default.” Though Amazon makes specific security features available to you, it’s still up to you to choose judiciously among the many native and third-party options.

    As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, walk through five use cases and examine what Amazon provides, and the questions you need to be asking to implement Amazon services – or add additional ones – that are appropriate for your business. After examining each use case, we’ll show you how we handle it for our own business.
