AWS native security tools for your cloud management platform

Every aspect of Stax is built with security in mind.

Prevention

The most secure foundation available

Tenant isolation at the AWS account level provides the most reliable, secure form of isolation, recommended by AWS. Stax maintains a separate AWS Organization for each Stax customer, ensuring that your own data is kept separate and secure.

Minimize vulnerabilities

Stax’s components and data are organized to place those with similar threat exposure and protection requirements within the same logical Security Zones (levels of trust). This structure minimizes the attack surface by limiting the pathways or entry points that are available to attackers.

Securely govern AWS

The Stax Control Plane performs cloud management tasks in line with AWS best practices, with defined roles and logging enabled. Stax Management establishes and maintains visibility and control over AWS services. Stax’s automated tasks use an AWS role to access your AWS accounts to perform tasks specific to AWS Account Assurance, along with various other tasks.

Benchmarked AWS configurations

Stax-provisioned AWS configurations are tested against the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark. Stax also constantly monitors your configuration against the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark so you know your security is top-notch.

Detection

View all AWS activity

A dedicated logging account provides an established logging security pattern, isolating your logging requirements. All API activity, user logins and user actions are logged. You can configure a custom set of alerts for the things you care about most. Stax leverages AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon GuardDuty extensively to detect, monitor and maintain this logging service.

Continuous monitoring

Stax monitors console and API usage for errors as they occur operationally. This lets our engineers quickly identify and remediate security issues at the platform level, so Stax is always secure and ready for you to use.

Resolution

We have your back

The Stax platform is highly secure. It enables you to build your own secure, compliant cloud apps for your projects. But if things go wrong and you have an issue, rest assured that we have a comprehensive support process that can help you get back up on your feet.

FAQs

What makes Stax the most secure AWS foundation available?

As the only native Cloud management platform for AWS, Stax has an unfair advantage when it comes to implementing security protocols in the Amazon Cloud.

What are Stax’s key security features?

With Stax, all components and data in the Cloud are sorted into groups, based on required protection and vulnerability to external threats.
