Organizations are moving their enterprise applications onto AWS for a range of business reasons including scalability. The on-demand nature of AWS allows you to leverage core AWS features and services such as Auto Scaling and Elastic Load Balancing to build an application infrastructure that quickly and dynamically scales to address increased capacity demands dictated by inbound traffic. Common Auto Scaling scenarios include unplanned traffic spikes (e.g., time-based or seasonal variations; unplanned news events), and the addition of new applications. To ensure that your application environment is protected from cyberattacks, security will need to scale at the same pace as your workloads.
