Starting today, AWS customers can use AWS PrivateLink to access Amazon Rekognition from their Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) without using public IPs, and without requiring the traffic to traverse across the Internet. Amazon Rekognition lets customers easily add intelligent image and video analysis to their applications. AWS PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs and AWS services, without ever leaving the Amazon network.

Using AWS PrivateLink, you can access Amazon Rekognition easily and securely by keeping your network traffic within the Amazon network, while significantly simplifying your internal network architecture. You no longer need to use an Internet Gateway, Network Address Translation (NAT) devices, or firewall proxies to connect to Amazon Rekognition. 

Visit the AWS region table for a full list of AWS Regions where Amazon Rekognition is available. To learn more about using PrivateLink to access Amazon Rekognition without leaving the Amazon network, click here.
