IBM Security helps airline remediate application security for AWS migration

Challenge A global leader in the United States airline industry teamed up with IBM Consulting and IBM Security Services to lead their AWS Cloud migration and modernization. The organization needed to migrate very high and critical business applications to AWS cloud as soon as possible. With 57,000 associates and 275 destinations on 6 continents, the airline had over 80 key business applications for their customers to scan and remediate before moving to AWS.  

Background In addition to helping develop and implement an enterprise security strategy for the airline’s AWS migration, IBM Security was engaged to test critical applications to minimize risk and achieve security by design. Tasks included threat modeling, architecture security reviews for compliance with client security mandates, performing static and dynamic security scans, checking secure configuration of AWS resources, and submitting evidence for pre-production GRC reviews.

Solution IBM Security provided deep application security expertise through tool-driven threat modeling of AWS components, security architecture reviews, and validation of security control implementation. With skills in Veracode, IBM demonstrated an approach that would provide highly skilled resources to scan and test the customer application backlog. IBM Security also worked with the CISO to design an effective security foundation to operationalize and optimize AWS native security.
