Protego serverless security solutions for
amazon web services

The Protego Serverless Security Platform automates application
security from development to runtime.

  • Integrates into existing CI/CD processes to save developers & DevSecOps time by automating application hardening
  • Analyzes tasks and function code, detects configuration risks, and automatically generates least-privilege permissions
  • Continually scans tasks and functions for known vulnerabilities and embedded injections to protect applications from attacks
  • Seamless runtime application security . Utilizing deep learning algorithms, Protego builds a model of normal application and function behavior, including automatic creation of a white list of actions on a resource level
  • Realtime detection and alerts to stop application layer attacks
AWS Lambda Security

AWS Lambda Security

AWS Lambda allows developers to quick run and scale code for any type of application or backend service; with no provisioning or server management. This allows developers to quickly launch new applications without creating greater infrastructure management and overhead burdens. To get the most out of AWS Lambda deployments, it is important to create an additional layer of security to protect the code itself–one that won’t delay launch, or impact the speed and agility serverless provides.

AWS Fargate Security

AWS Fargate Security

AWS Fargate Security border

AWS Fargate allows developers to run containers without the added need to manage servers or clusters. This means developers no longer have to provision, configure, or scales clusters of virtual machines, and can instead focus on designing and building applications without the infrastructure management overhead. Security posture continues to be important, and it is critical to establish a seamless layer of security into the AWS Fargate deployment that offers additional layers of protection. Find out how simple it for securing AWS Fargate.

Amazon Web Services Security Best Practices Checklist

amazon web services

Map your Amazon Web Services applications to get a complete picture and understand your potential risks

waf api gateway

Keep using your WAF and API Gateway for securing these environments

permission roles

Craft suitable, minimal permission roles for each function and container using Amazon Web Services

function timeouts

Make function timeouts as short as possible to
reduce the likelihood of an attack
to your applications

security posture

Optimize your security posture in tandem with
the development process with
Amazon Web Services for seamless
integration and a secure launch


Train developers and conduct regular code
reviews to ensure the development
and security teams are working closely in
partnership in an efficient manner


Leverage tools to automate serverless
security- time is our most valuable
resource. By automating security analysis and
defense you can move on to new
projects creating even greater efficiency,
which is the whole point of moving to
Amazon Web Services for serverless.

application dependencies

Secure application dependencies. Regardless of what Amazon Web Service
infrastructure you are using (AWS Lambda, AWS Fargate, etc.), leveraging third party application
codes does introduce an additional layer of risk. It is important to continuously analyze the codes
introduced into your application to ensure they do not gain access to your environment. The more
you can automate the code analysis the greater your chances of preventing an attack.
