Secure Your Assets with HardenedVault’s security-enhanced Linux Built on AWS

Hardened Linux

AWS has established multiple regions and availability zones worldwide, strictly adhering to security regulations and standards in each region, providing global deployment solutions to enterprises. This advantage enables enterprises to deploy applications and services more efficiently, while improving user experience. Therefore, HardenedVault chose to build a secure enhanced version of Linux on the AWS platform to meet the complex compliance requirements faced by enterprises when conducting business globally, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS. These requirements are closely tied to the technical guidelines of STIG and CIS at the operating system level. As a result, HardenedVault’s security hardening solution not only satisfies the requirements of STIG and CIS but also integrates with VED (Vault Exploit Defense), a vaccine-like 0-day defense solution for Linux kernel runtime, and a set of security hardening strategies distilled from malware attack cases.

In July 2022, HardenedVault launched a secure enhanced version of Linux on AWS. Our users come from various industries, including but not limited to blockchain, fintech, and payment. In the past year, our technology use cases have covered Ethereum validation node protection, container escape protection in cloud-native environments, security compliance strengthening, and security log analysis server protection. After continuous iterative development and improvement, our latest version, v1.6, includes long-term support for HardenedVault’s Linux kernel vaccine solution, VED (Vault Exploit Defense).
