Antivirus for Amazon S3
Like many public sector agencies, this organization uses Amazon S3 to ingest and store large amounts of data from third party vendors and data brokers for processing.
During a security audit, it was determined that the ingestion of TB of data each month from outside sources is a major attack vector. There was no assurance that the data has been scanned for malware and viruses before it was processed and accessed by agency staff or shared externally with partner agencies.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) launched over 16 years ago and today houses over 200 trillion objects making it one of the most successful services provided by AWS. Organizations use Amazon S3 to build data lakes, run cloud-native applications, backup and restore critical data, and archive data at low cost. Amazon S3's popularity has made it the center pin of cloud computing. This popularity has opened the door to advanced threats such as malware, ransomware, viruses, worms, trojans, and more.
If you ingest files into Amazon S3 from third-party sources that can eventually enter an environment where they become executable, you're opening the door to malicious payloads. Learn how to protect your users, customers and partners from ransomware, viruses, trojans and more during this detailed and technical event - Antivirus For Amazon S3 Workshop: Malware Scanning For Application Workflows. This article includes links to register as well as what's being covered and who would benefit most from attending.
AWS celebrated 16 years since the launch of Amazon S3 with AWS Pi Day on March 14, 2022. Since the beginning of the year, some incredible announcements have been made including improvements to file integrity, the new Glacier Instant Retrieval storage class, general availability of AWS Backup, and much more. With over 200 trillion files being stored (that’s 29,000 files per person on earth) and more than 100 million requests per second for files, S3 is used now more than ever. However, there’s still one aspect of storage security that continues to be overlooked — the topic of antivirus scanning.

It is well known that malware can disrupt the availability of critical assets and data, impairing an organization’s ability to operate. It is key that organizations remain vigilant and defend against malware across all potential entry points.
Recently, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a joint cybersecurity advisory to raise awareness regarding destructive malware and provide preventative recommendations.
