Ekran System is now available on Amazon Web Services! 


AWS provides many internal cybersecurity mechanisms, but they can’t control what your employees do with data. That’s exactly why you need insider risk management software.


After quick and simple deployment on AWS, Ekran System provides you with recordings of all user activity, sends alerts on security events, and allows you to respond to potential threats in minutes.


Full cycle insider threat protection in your AWS environment


Being a full cycle insider risk management platform, Ekran System provides you with a complete set of tools to detect, deter, and disrupt insider activity in your AWS environment.


Our software helps you:


  • Monitor user activity. No matter which AWS service or instance your employees use, Ekran System records their activities in the form of video, metadata (keystrokes, opened files, visited URLs, connected USB devices, etc.), and audio records.
  • Respond to security events. When Ekran System detects suspicious activity, it alerts you and provides options to block the activity or notify the user. You can even configure Ekran to respond automatically.
  • Manage user access. Decide which users can access which AWS instances, and configure their rights in several clicks. You can also manually handle requests for accessing the most sensitive resources and use the built-in password manager to secure credentials.
  • Conduct audits and create reports. With continuous monitoring, it’s easy to collect an audit trail and investigate a security incident. Reporting also becomes more convenient with Ekran System, as our solution can generate numerous reports on suspicious events, user activity, and employee productivity.

Flexible AWS deployment with floating licensing


Flexibility is one of the key benefits of using cloud platforms — you can maintain and pay only for the endpoints you need. However, cloud platforms may bring challenges. Creating new licenses or reassigning existing licenses can disrupt work, especially for large organizations with lots of virtual AWS endpoints. 


With Ekran System, you can reassign licenses in several minutes thanks to the floating licensing scheme. You just need to obtain licenses for the number of active endpoints. When any of your endpoints shuts down, Ekran System will return the license to the pool. The software assigns a license to a new endpoint the minute you create it.
