INCREASE SECURITY IN THE CLOUD!
IMPLEMENTING AWS WELL ARCHITECTED STANDARDS AND A CONSEQUENT ENCRYPTION STRATEGY AS SECURITY CORNERSTONES

eCommerce

CHALLENGE

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 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. 

solution

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 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 architecture 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.

WE SAVED THE CUSTOMER SIX MONTHS, LEVERAGING THE CLOUD SECURITY EXPERTISE OF ALICE&BOB.COMPANY AND PROVIDED CONFIDENCE IN CLOUD SECURITY.

RESULT

NBB significantly improved its confidence in using AWS cloud platform services and increased its security standards further within only three months. 

We removed blockers and allowed the customer to continue NBB’s cloud journey. 

A key result was an asset server lightweight microservice implementation, integrating KMS with S3 and Cloudfront, providing high long-term value to the client.
