How does an organization ensure its data is protected as it moves to the cloud? AWS provides a proven secure cloud environment, which is a great data security foundation. However, that’s where their responsibility for security ends. Responsibility for protecting and verifying data within AWS shifts to you, the owner of the data. So, where do you start? First, encrypt the data using external key management to significantly decrease single-company risk. Then apply global policies and define who can access it. Through the AWS Marketplace you’ve found a solution that answers these data security concerns and more — Ionic MachinaTM.
Machina provides you full control over how your data is accessed and handled with just a few lines of code. You can define and enforce data protection policies in real-time with configurable and granular, attribute-based access control (ABAC) and streamlined auditing. Having a single view of all your data activities leveraging real-time analytics enables you to stay on top of how your data is accessed and handled, no matter where it lives.
Now that you’re ready to sign-up, how do you determine which solution offering will best address your needs?
Let us break down the details.
Machina S3 Unlimited
|Machina — S3 Unlimited||Unlimited access to Machina protecting S3 data with on-ramp assistance||$18,000||$36,000||$54,000|
Our most popular AWS offering, Machina — S3 Unlimited, is perfect for any client who is migrating data from an on-premises environment to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). This offering allows for an unlimited number of Machina policy transactions for data within an S3 cloud environment.
With the complexity of hybrid systems and differing policy requirements today, it is common for organizations to misconfigure S3 buckets unknowingly. These errors create data vulnerabilities that hackers are now targeting. Leveraging Machina – S3 Unlimited provides the assurance that even if your bucket is misconfigured in S3, it cannot be accessed unless a sophisticated, yet simple-to-create set of policies and attributes are verified at the time of the request.
Machina All-Access 50
|Machina — All-Access 50||Machina for up to 50,000 txns/mo, on-ramp assistance, overages apply||$36,000||$69,000||$96,000|
Clients looking for protection beyond Amazon S3 with more complex or hybrid environments should consider Machina All-Access 50. This offering was developed for an organization that needs to protect data across multiple environments; on-premises and hybrid cloud architectures. Once Machina is enabled to protect your data, your organization can request 50,000 policy transactions per month. All transactions beyond the 50,000 transaction limit will be charged at $0.10 per transaction.
If you are unsure of how many transactions your organization would run in a month, below are a few examples to help you estimate.
Machina – All-Access
|Machina — All-Access||Machina for custom txns/mo, on-ramp assistance, overages apply||$144,000||$288,000||$432,000|
Machina All-Access was developed for highly regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare and government sectors that require more granular policy enforcement. This solution allows for an externally negotiated number of transactions across any environment.
If you determine that your usage exceeds the limits of your current package or your requirements have evolved, you may upgrade to another package at any point during your contract.
