Amazon revealed the general availability of AWS Network Firewall, which is a new security service made for customers that use virtual networks on AWS. The service said it will make sure there is high availability, managed network firewall for virtual private clouds.
The firewall will supply thorough protection for AWS networks, enabling customers to place and manage intrusion prevention and detection, web filtering and URL filtering with ease.
It is also viable to come up with personalized rules in order to get rid of virtual clouds from accessing unofficial domains and find malicious activity.
With this firewall, users will be able to make security rules and apply them throughout their virtual private clouds and accounts through the AWS Firewall Manager Console and API.
A new AWS Network Firewall can be made in the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface, and AWS SDKs for developing and managing firewalls.
The AWS Network Firewall is accessible in the US East, US West, and Europe areas and the price varies based on hours deployed and gigabytes of data processed.
The Chief Information Security Officer at AWS, Steve Schmidt, said, “When we talk to customers about what they want in a cloud network firewall they tell us that they want network protections that work with their existing security systems and without the headache of managing the underlying infrastructure.”
“AWS Network Firewall provides scalable network protections that allow customers to deploy highly customizable rules for their entire AWS infrastructure and integrates with many of the APN partner services that customers already use. Best of all, there’s no need to configure or maintain additional infrastructure.”
