As an Amazon EC2 certified cloud security solution provider, MetaFlows offers turnkey cloud instances (RHEL/CentOS 6/7) bundled with Metaflows' MSS software. The advantage of the MSS Amazon EC2 product in cloud security monitoring applications is that it can perform deep packet inspection in the Amazon EC2 cloud without requiring access to the networking layer. Each MSS Amazon EC2 instance can monitor up to 50 production EC2 servers without incurring additional bandwidth costs. The MSS Amazon EC2 software inherits all the features of the other MSS solutions and therefore provides a complete IDS/IPS solution for the Amazon EC2 cloud. This enables organizations to meet and exceed enterprise reporting and logging compliance requirements in a cost-effective and scalable way.
