The Role of AWS—Dedicated to Providing Customers a Highly Secured Cloud Computing Platform
AWS (Amazon Web Services) is dedicated to providing customers a highly secured cloud computing platform. AWS does this by protecting the global infrastructure that runs all the services that are offered in the Amazon Web Services Cloud. The global infrastructure is comprised of software, hardware, networking and other facilities.
AWS offers several reports from 3rd party auditors for customer satisfaction. These reports verify AWS compliance with the highest computer security standards & regulations.
In addition to protecting the global infrastructure, Amazon Web Services is also responsible for maintain security configuration of their products such as Amazon Redshift, Amazon RDS, Amazon Dynamo DB, Amazon WorkSpaces, Amazon Elastic Map Reduce and other services. For these web services, Amazon handles basic-security tasks like database patching, guest operating system, disaster recovery and firewall configuration. Simply stated, AWS maintains a highly secured network by carefully combining together audit friendly and governance focused services with security compliance regulation standards. Amazon manages security of the cloud while the customer manages security in the cloud.
