AWS CloudFormation

FireEye Gets You Started in The Cloud Faster with AWS CloudFormation

FireEye is excited to be part of the AWS CloudFormation Registry.  AWS has introduced a public and searchable registry containing non-AWS resource types that can be published and maintained by the broader community. This will simplify how customers are able to discover and consume non-AWS resources from the registry. Leveraging the power of an open ecosystem is key to helping FireEye’s customers with their security posture, ensuring best practices can be found quickly and easily. FireEye has published our CloudWatch template on the CloudFormation Registry (image below), where mutual customers can find it or leverage it directly from our FireEye Helix platform.

FireEye’s CloudFormation resource will help mutual customers with their AWS CloudWatch logs.  This will allow customers to monitor and capture data and actionable insights about applications, respond to system-wide performance changes, optimize resource utilization, and get a unified view of operational health. FireEye Helix uses this to understand if operational issues in cloud applications are related to security incidents. 

Customers of FireEye Helix can navigate to the FireEye Helix CloudConnect portal to enable this integration.  After starting a new AWS CloudWatch integration, a customer will be prompted for their Log Group Name and Region.  This will utilize the new CloudFormation registry by automatically creating the custom resource for a customer's AWS account who can then deploy it in seconds.
