It’s been a week since re:Invent, and the dust is still settling.
The content from the event is being posted quickly. You can find all of the videos (with a few still coming), audio podcast versions, and slides from the sessions online. The challenge here is the how to process this massive amount of content.
To help, I hosted a webinar to provide my perspective on the key announcements and information from re:Invent. During the webinar, I covered what Trend Micro announced, the new AWS services, and–more importantly–where you should be focusing your energies.
You can now view the webinar on demand.
Trend Micro Resources
Deep Security in the AWS Marketplace
The big announcement from Trend Micro was the release of Deep Security 9.5 in the AWS Marketplace.
The AMI supports multiple configurations of Deep Security, free trial, single node, or multi-node deployments are all supported from the one AMI via a simple setup process. You’ll be up and running in just a few minutes, regardless of your deployment.
A big push from Trend Micro during the show was around awareness of your security responsibilities in the AWS Cloud.
I wrote a four-part series of posts describing the shared responsibility model for security in AWS:
I also wrote a wrap-up post that highlighted some of our efforts and a few of my favorite breakout sessions.
SEC313, Updating Security Operations For The Cloud
One of our sessions, “Updating Security Operations For The Cloud,” was very well-received. So much so that I was invited to give it again as a repeat session.
A big part of the talk was the demo for an event-based security response that uses auto scaling groups to automate the restoration of production. This allows the security team time to analyze the situation.
You can read the details of that workflow, watch the demos, and get the SNS http endpoint sample code over at my site.
Trend Micro was also lucky enough to be the headline sponsor of theCube at this year’s show. theCube was broadcasting live from the show floor in Las Vegas. They had a fantastic line-up of guests on the show.
The interviews are available now and are a great perspective on the current state of the AWS Cloud.
A few of our clients were on the show, and their stories are of particular interest:
On the partner front, you should also see what we’re up to with CloudNexa.

With some much new information to dive into, I think it’s important to remember why we build these systems and why security is important. This short video is aimed at reminding you why we do what we do.
Read the write-up for the video, and please take it to heart.
There still more content coming out from the event itself. But the thing to watch for over the next few weeks are the solutions that people are starting to build with all of the new services and features from AWS.
We’re in for an amazing explosion of new apps and services that leverage this new functionality. It’s a very exciting time to be building solutions in AWS.
