Hot on the heels of the AWS Summit in Chicago last week, we’re gearing up to head over to New York for the AWS Summit happening in the Jacob Javits Center. Our second year in a row traveling across the country to the top AWS Summits, we are more and more encouraged by your overwhelming feedback on everything we’re building here at Threat Stack, fueling us for each subsequent summit.
A lot has happened here at Threat Stack in just the short amount of time since we were last at the AWS Summit in San Francisco in April. Most notably, we introduced our new Chairman and CEO, Brian Ahern, coming to us from Industrial Defender where he was Founder and CEO. We also unveiled a PagerDuty integration now available to all customers, making managing and responding to incidents as quick and easy as possible.
Keeping your cloud workloads secure, compliant, and protected while moving at the speed of DevOps is no easy task. Our team at Threat Stack knows this truth very well. There are many different viewpoints on the best approach to take to keep your customer data and systems protected in the cloud, and it all starts with understanding where your cloud provider’s responsibility for security ends and where yours begins. Let’s use AWS as an example throughout this post as they have a Shared Responsibility Model that demonstrates this well.

For the second year in a row, Threat Stack will be attending and exhibiting at the AWS Enterprise Summit, this time at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Throughout the past year alone, our integration with AWS has grown even deeper, helping customers effectively meet their responsibilities within the shared security model. We look forward to sharing the significant advances on our platform with the AWS community during the AWS Summit next week.
On Wednesday, Threat Stack was featured in an important GigaOM webinar panel, Iron Clad DevOps Security for Your EC2 Environments. The panel included our own Director of Ops and Support, Pete Cheslock, along with David Linthicum of GigaOM, Greg Ferro, Independent Analyst, and Matt Sarrel, Executive Director of Sarrel Group. It was a deeply informative hour-long discussion which David himself claimed as one of the best security webinars he’s had. We couldn’t agree more!
Join Threat Stack’s Director of Ops & Support, Pete Cheslock, as he discusses the security needs of modern, DevOps-managed infrastructures with Greg Ferro, Independent Analyst, and Matt Sarrel, Executive Director of Sarrel Group, in next week’s GigaOM webinar.
With the lack of sophisticated security features in public cloud infrastructure environments like AWS, it’s critical for DevOps teams to implement audit trails in order to adhere to compliance and regulation mandates. Continuous security monitoring is the answer and on February 11th, Pete, Greg and Matt will be discussing the importance of having this new level of visibility into an entire EC2 attack surface.
We just returned from a great week in Las Vegas, NV for the AWS re:Invent Conference. The conference brought together over 13,500 developers, architects and many other technical users of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure for an intensive four-day event. It is the year’s top spot to dive deep into the most pressing AWS topics and issues as well as learn about new services and brings the entire AWS ecosystem together.
Threat Stack at AWS re:Invent
Today we’re extremely excited to announce the general availability of Threat Stack!
Right on the heels of our successful beta program with hundreds of active users, and a very busy summer that included shipping many new features, hiring key members of our executive team, and participating in several major AWS events, we have officially launched our service at the AWS re:Invent Conference. We are thrilled and honored that Threat Stack, among just a handful of other companies, was selected by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to join Amazon’s CTO, Dr. Werner Vogels, on stage during his Start-up Launch Keynote to introduce our services to the entire AWS community.
The only thing hotter than the streets of Manhattan last week was the New York AWS Summit! The event was packed with AWS users and those exploring moving into the cloud. In fact, there were so many users there that they ran out of badges!
