Aviatrix Software-Defined Cloud Routing Solution Adds Important Security Measures for AWS VPCs

Aviatrix, a pioneer in software-defined (SD) cloud routing and an inaugural AWS Network Competency partner, today announced a new security capability for its AVX SD cloud routing solution. The AVX virtual private cloud (VPC) egress security feature makes it easy to both discover and control internet traffic leaving Amazon Web Services (AWS) VPCs, allowing organizations to more effectively secure egress traffic against internal threats and external attacks.

The AVX VPC egress security capability also enables organizations to comply with internal best practices and industry regulations such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards, which require controls and restrictions in place to deny unauthorized outbound traffic related to cardholder data.

"Moving resources to the public cloud doesn't absolve organizations of the strict security and regulatory requirements governing how they manage their enterprise data traffic," said Aviatrix CEO Steven Mih. "Internet-bound VPC egress traffic has been a blind spot, making it nearly impossible for cloud engineers to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate destinations. As organizations move more of their workloads to the public cloud, they need cloud-specific tools to give them both visibility into and control over AWS VPC egress traffic."
