Protect Against Web Exploits and Malicious IPs


Comprehensive Threat Monitoring and Management

Deployment of AWS GuardDuty

Enhanced Protection Against DDoS Attacks

AWS Shield

The Challenge

The client encountered security challenges with their legacy infrastructure, lacking guardrails, stringent user authentication, bot defense during peak booking (Tatkal), and DDoS protection. Transitioning to AWS Cloud was vital for improved security, management, and governance, facilitating rapid development and deployment of their modern ticketing system.


  • Leveraged AWS Organizations for centralized governance and compliance. 
  • Implemented Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for enhanced security. 
  • Utilized AWS Identity Center for seamless provisioning with AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) integration. 
  • Employed AWS GuardDuty for continuous threat monitoring and detection. 
  • Utilized AWS Shield for DDoS attack protection. 
  • Encrypted data at rest using AWS Key Management Service (KMS). 
  • Used AWS Security Groups and Network ACLs to control traffic to and from Amazon EKS clusters. 
  • Implemented AWS WAF rules for targeted IP blocking, rate limiting, and core rule sets for OWASP Top 10 attacks. 
  • Integrated AWS Security Hub for centralized security management and automated compliance checks, alongside Inspector for vulnerability assessment on Amazon EKS nodes. 
  • Leveraged AWS CloudTrail for API activity logging and monitoring. 
  • Utilized AWS Control Tower Landing Zone for rapid setup of a secure, compliant multi-account AWS environment, following best practices and security guardrails.

The Results

Enhanced infrastructure protection, DDoS defense, continuous threat monitoring, centralized security management, vulnerability assessment, granular access controls, data encryption, streamlined governance, and enhanced user authentication with AWS security solutions.
