Compliance features and benefits

AWS compliance ties together governance-focused, audit-friendly services with applicable security compliance regulations and audit standards — empowering any organization to operate within an AWS security control environment.

The AWS shared responsibility model gives users the power to decide which security features to implement in order to protect their content, platforms, applications, systems, and networks, exactly as they would in an on-site data center.

Detection and response

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks threaten to slow down or even crash unprotected networks. AWS technology is built from the ground up to guard against DDoS attacks. AWS services can also be combined to create an in-depth defense strategy to thwart potential attacks.

AWS gives you the opportunity to add an extra layer of security to your data in the cloud with tools including:

  • Data encryption capabilities
  • AWS Key Management Service
  • AWS CloudHSM

Inventory and configuration

AWS offers a range of tools to help your organization move fast, while ensuring your cloud resources comply with organizational standards and best practices. Explore tools for security assessment, inventory and configuration management, template management, analytics, and more.

Take your cloud security into your own hands with tools from AWS that let you identify, track, and manage your AWS resources over time and create standard, preconfigured environments and templates.

AWS provides advanced and secure applications, including:

  • Amazon Inspector
  • AWS Config
  • AWS CloudFormation

Monitoring, identity & access control

AWS provides advanced visibility tools to help mitigate issues before they become threats. With AWS CloudTrail and Amazon CloudWatch, you gain deep visibility into API calls, along with log aggregation and compliance reporting.

Define individual user accounts and permissions while including multifactor authentication for privileged accounts. And integrate and federate with corporate directories to reduce administrative overhead — and improve the end-user experience.

Security guidance and support

As you progress in your cloud migration, AWS offers support services to help your organization adopt best practices. AWS support ensures your cloud environment is secure, efficient, highly available, and always cost-effective.

With online tools including AWS Trusted Advisor and a technical account manager, you gain a support system that suggests ways to save money, improve performance, and close any security gaps — and a single point of contact providing technical expertise, proactive support, and advocacy.
