AWS DataSync is now SOC compliant

Posted on: Jun 4, 2019

You can now use AWS DataSync for workloads that are subject to Service Organization Control (SOC) compliance. DataSync is an online data transfer service that simplifies, automates, and accelerates copying data between NFS file servers, Amazon S3 buckets, and Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) file systems using a purpose-built network protocol to achieve speeds of up to 10x faster than open source tools.

AWS DataSync is now SOC 1, 2, and 3 compliant, allowing you to get deep insight into the security processes and controls that protect customer data. These reports are often leveraged by diverse industries, such as technology, healthcare, banking and financial services, and used for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) efforts.

In addition to meeting standards for SOC, AWS DataSync is in scope for PCI-DSS and ISO (9001, 27001, 27017, and 27018) compliance, and HIPAA eligibility. You can go to the Services in Scope by Compliance Program page to see a full list. Learn more about AWS DataSync here.
