Amazon WorkSpaces Public APIs are now supported on AWS PrivateLink

Posted on: Nov 25, 2019

All Amazon WorkSpaces Public APIs are now fully supported on AWS PrivateLink, which increases the security of data shared with cloud-based applications by reducing the exposure of data to the public Internet. Now, WorkSpaces API traffic can be secured inside a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) when administering your Amazon WorkSpaces fleet.

Using PrivateLink for Public APIs, you can choose to restrict API traffic to stay within your Amazon VPC, which can be isolated from the public internet. Using PrivateLink with WorkSpaces Public APIs also enables you to securely expose REST APIs to resources only within your VPC or to those connected to your data centers via AWS Direct Connect. You can also restrict access to selected Amazon VPCs and VPC Endpoints as well as enable cross account access using Resource-specific Policies.  

Amazon WorkSpaces support on AWS PrivateLink is now available in all AWS Regions where Amazon WorkSpaces is available. For a list of regions where WorkSpaces is available, see the AWS Region Table. For more information on using PrivateLink, see documentation here.
