California), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (London), EU (Frankfurt), and South America (Sao Paulo). With the latest release, DynamoDB encryption at rest is now available in 14 regions including EU (Ireland), US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), and US West (Oregon).

DynamoDB encryption at rest, available for new DynamoDB tables, helps you secure your application data in Amazon DynamoDB tables by using AWS-managed encryption keys stored in AWS Key Management Service. Encryption at rest is fully transparent to the user with all DynamoDB queries working seamlessly on encrypted data. With this capability, it has never been easier to use DynamoDB for security-sensitive applications with strict encryption compliance and regulatory requirements.
