Deploy a Network Security appliance in AWS

Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows you to scale your network deployment as needed without investing in hardware appliances. Network Security for AWS integrates the TippingPoint Virtual Threat Protection System (vTPS) appliance with AWS by placing Network Security instances inline within your AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

With few exceptions, Network Security has the same functionality and features as the vTPS. High availability is ensured by using a lambda function to reroute network traffic. Manage instances with CloudWatch, the Command Line Interface (CLI), and the Cloud One – Network Security management interface.

This user guide describes how to deploy and manage a Network Security instance in a compatible environment. This guide first walks you through setting up your environment and then describes creating the Network Security instance itself.
