Protecting Developer Environments with the VM-Series for AWS
The move to AWS is enabling many organizations to adopt a more agile, iterative application development methodology. In so doing, developers and their workloads need rapid, oftentimes automated, yet secure access to web-based resources like GitHub, Yum, Apt-Get, and OS update mechanisms for Windows or Linux. The need for additional security, over and above native security to protect developer environments is well documented. Developers are regularly accessing web-based executables, how-to guides, workbooks of all types to get their jobs done more quickly and effectively. These same web resources are commonly used by attackers to inject malware into an unsuspecting network. This whitepaper outlines how the VM-Series can be used to protect developer environments on AWS.
