Bastion Host on AWS - Getting Started

Documentation 16 Jan 2023

This documentation is provided as a quick start guide to our AWS MarketPlace Clients.


Who needs a Bastion Host? If you manage Linux and Windows servers in the cloud, they are probably sitting in a private subnet behind a rock-solid firewall and security groups to protect them from the bad actors and viruses on the internet. As a systems administrator, you understand the security needs of your organisation. You know that while managing Linux and Windows systems, you need a secure and reliable way to do so. But how do you achieve this? If you answered Bastion Host, this image is for you. If you answered differently, let me tell you why you need a Bastion Host.

Bastion hosts provide a simple and secure way to connect to your servers without needing VPNs. With intrusion protection, multi-system support and key authentication, you can ensure that authorised persons only access your servers. Plus, Bastion hosts are fully managed and highly available, so you can focus on your core responsibilities while we take care of the rest. Keep security and ease of use; launch your Bastion host today.

Some standard features of a bastion server include:
