Are you looking for ways to ensure continuous security compliance on Amazon Web Service (AWS)? At Vandis’ latest event, the Cloud Conference in New York City, top industry partners shared tips and solutions for keeping attacks at bay, and maintaining the safety of your infrastructure and data; however, it’s not too late to learn a bit by downloading the event's presentations.
Nathan J. Lichtenstein is a Senior Network Engineer at Vandis; he is a critical player in ensuring that our clients' network infrastructure needs are met, whether on-premise or in the cloud.
