The Challenge

The client’s AWS infrastructure required security enhancements that were aligned with the Well-Architected Framework. We identified 34 High-Risk and 8 Medium-Risk Issues, especially vulnerabilities in web applications like SQL injection and XSS, prompting urgent action to prevent data breaches and unauthorized access. 

“I have noted that Rohit, Monish, and Naman have successfully remediated 16 out of the 23 HRIs. Their dedication and hard work are truly commendable. I am more than happy to provide feedback and share my experience regarding their performance. I am looking forward to seeing similar enthusiasm from CloudThat’s team for the closure of the remaining HRIs.”
