Customer Success Story Notebooksbilliger - Well Architected Standards
INCREASE SECURITY IN THE CLOUD!
IMPLEMENTING AWS WELL ARCHITECTED STANDARDS AND A CONSEQUENT ENCRYPTION STRATEGY AS SECURITY CORNERSTONES
Since 2002 notebooksbilliger.de (NBB) sells consumer electronics online. NBB´s goal remains the same: to offer the most attractive products and the best shopping experience for their customers. This makes NBB the first choice for more than 6 million customers when buying consumer electronics online.
NBB runs their very well-know B2C online shop platform mainly in a classical data center but wanted to find out how NBB could leverage public Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud further since it can bring additional benefits for both service scale out and developer flexibility.
Yet before expanding the use of public cloud services NBB wanted to make sure it meets state of the art AWS security standards and well architecture guidelines on services and workloads running there.
Additionally, NBB expected ongoing support and team empowerment for any potential implementation.
Alice&Bob (A&B) and NBB conducted an initial joint warm-up project to not only get to know each other but also to gain a sound understanding of NBB’s individual environment.
Part of the warm-up was to analyze existing services and discover potential improvements regarding the status quo, security and AWS well-architected standards. During this part of the project expanding NBB’s know-how and use of AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) in accordance with core AWS services was discovered to be one of the main topics to be covered. But Alice&Bob also identified optimization potential concerning a suitable multi-account structure corresponding to AWS well-architected standards.
AWS offers the broadest security portfolio of all public cloud vendors on the market. The enablement to take advantage of those services and a joined security roadmap were additional key project results.
During the second part of the collaboration, A&B implemented identified measures and plans jointly with NBB.
