Upwind’s Cloud Security Platform harnesses the power of runtime data to comprehensively secure customers’ infrastructure and applications across multi-cloud and multi-architecture environments. 

We are excited to announce that we are extending our infrastructure capabilities to support applications built using the Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). 

Amazon ECS  is designed to simplify the deployment and management of containerized applications on AWS. It abstracts much of the underlying infrastructure complexities, allowing users to focus on building and running their applications. ECS provides a straightforward way to deploy, manage, and scale containerized workloads using Docker.

“Upwind’s ECS support makes it seamless to view and protect all of our cloud infrastructure. The visibility and context Upwind provides has made it easy for us to secure multi-architecture environments all from one centralized location”
-Rinki Sethi, VP & CISO, Bill

Protect Cloud Infrastructure with Upwind for Amazon ECS

Our support for Amazon ECS will allow Upwind customers to leverage all of Upwind’s capabilities for their ECS-based infrastructure, including:

  • Real-time threat detection: detect and respond to threats in real time at the process, packet and system call levels across your ECS clusters.
  • Vulnerability management: discover and prioritize the vulnerabilities that are the most critical to your organization, cutting vulnerability noise by approximately 95%
  • Inventory: take a complete inventory of your resources across your ECS infrastructure
  • Topology map: a real-time view of network communication across your ECS workloads 
  • API Security: protect APIs whether they access ECS container instances or originate from these instances and interact with other resources

“The fact that Upwind provides not only visibility but also contextualized vulnerability and threat analysis for ECS has been a game changer for our organization.”

-Alon Reznik | Chief Architect, Rivery

Upwind’s ECS support comes in addition to our existing support including Kubernetes workloads (Amazon’s EKS, Azure’s AKS, Google’s GKE, RedHat OpenShift, KOPS) and Hosts (standalone VMs and Scaling groups). This release demonstrates our commitment to providing protection for our customers’  complete cloud infrastructure, bringing Upwind’s real-time protection to container-based workloads that use Amazon ECS for orchestration.
