VPC Security for Neo4j Enterprise

Security is the biggest question on any organization’s mind when transitioning to the cloud, which is why that has been the core of the architecture and design for enabling a Neo4j Enterprise cloud offering in AWS.

In AWS it is important to utilize a VPC, which guarantees that all your Neo4j Enterprise resources can be launched in an isolated network that only your authorized personnel, infrastructure and services can access.

The VPC configuration must be properly configured to adhere to your enterprise security requirements. For instance, a public subnet is made so your servers can gain entry to the internet while your backend systems within a private subnet virtually has no internet access. It is important to establish controls for multiple security layers as well as security groups and network access control lists, for controlled access to Neo4j Enterprise clusters.

Furthermore, you can make a Peering or Direct VPN connectivity between your enterprise data center/VPC and your Neo4j AWS cloud to leverage your AWS cloud VPC as a branch of your current data centers.
