AWS has introduced three services to further help enterprises manage security, governance, and compliance of their resources in the cloud.
First up is AWS Key Management Service, a fully managed service that aids customers in creating and controlling the encryption keys used to encrypt their data on the AWS Cloud.
AWS Config is a fully managed service that provides customers with full visibility into their AWS resources and lets them audit resource configuration history, and notifies them of resource configuration changes.
AWS Service Catalog allows enterprise administrators to select what AWS resources they want their employees deploying, in what configurations, who has access to each of these options, and then makes them discoverable to their employees via a personalised portal.
"As our customers move larger portions of their applications to the AWS Cloud, they need more than just robust, highly secure infrastructure services. They’ve asked us for tools to help them fortify the landscape around their core services and ensure that they are deploying what they intend, governing their resources, and implementing security best-practices," said Scott Wiltamuth, Vice President, Developer Productivity and Tools, Amazon Web Services.
"To address these needs, AWS Key Management Service, AWS Config, and AWS Service Catalog help customers manage encryption and compliance efforts so they can understand, control, and audit how their resources are being deployed, who is accessing them, and what activities and usage is happening within their environments."
