Secure Your Cloud

Join Our Happy Customers

In their review of our AWS services (Identity and Access Management (IAM), VPC Service Controls, AWS Config, CloudTrail, etc.) they checked the security of cloud environment configurations and our corporate data stored in the cloud and the effectiveness of our security practices in AWS. After that, we received another report with clear recommendations on how to enhance the cybersecurity of our AWS environment. After an agreed time period for us to remedy the vulnerabilities they found, the experts at ScienceSoft performed a retest to confirm that we addressed the vulnerabilities.

We were very satisfied with the professional, timely, and friendly service and we greatly appreciate their help in securing our networks. We eagerly recommend ScienceSoft as a strong cybersecurity partner.
