    Hi Denzil,

    Thank you for posting here.

    To my knowledge, these are the few AWS services that can be used to protect resources running within a VPC:

    1. Security Groups—Security groups act as virtual firewalls and allow you to control inbound and outbound traffic to EC2 instances within a VPC.

    2. Network ACLs are similar to security groups but applied at the subnet level instead of the instance level. They allow you to control traffic that enters or leaves a subnet.

    3. AWS Network Firewall – This managed firewall service provides capabilities like stateful packet inspection, intrusion prevention, and web filtering. It allows you to manage firewall rules across multiple VPCs and subnets centrally.

    4. VPC Endpoints – By creating interface or gateway endpoints, resources within the VPC can securely access other AWS services privately without an internet gateway, NAT device, VPN connection, or AWS Direct Connect connection. This eliminates potential security risks of public internet access.

    As for your concern regarding your post on Slack, I apologize for being unable to respond to your queries. We will reply to your queries as soon as we can.

    Thank you for understanding.
