AWS Data Exchange introduces configurable encryption for data exports to Amazon S3

Posted on: Apr 27, 2020

AWS Data Exchange now enables customers exporting data assets to their Amazon S3 buckets to specify the encryption configuration they would like to apply to the destination S3 objects. Starting today, customers can configure Amazon S3 server-side encryption parameters in their export Job details and choose whether to encrypt the data using an Amazon S3-managed key (S3-SSE) or using an AWS KMS Customer Master Key (CMK). This new feature allows customers to benefit from Amazon S3’s object-level encryption for their third-party data.

AWS Data Exchange makes it easy to find, subscribe to, and use third-party data in the cloud. Customers use AWS Data Exchange to subscribe to a diverse selection of third-party data products. Once subscribed, customers can use the AWS Data Exchange API or console to export the data they subscribed to Amazon S3, making it directly available for analysis using AWS’s analytics and machine learning services.
