Today, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced Amazon Textract, a machine learning service that quickly and easily extracts text and data from forms and tables in scanned documents, can now be used for workloads that are subject to Service Organization Control (SOC) compliance, and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) compliance. This launch builds upon the existing portfolio of AWS machine learning services that are SOC and ISO compliant, including Amazon Sagemaker, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Comprehend, Amazon Lex, and Amazon Connect. The AWS compliance program continues to enable our global customer base to maintain confidence in our secured control environments with a focus on information security, confidentiality, and availability.
Starting today, Amazon Textract is now compliant with SOC-1, SOC-2, SOC-3, ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018, which means customers in finance, healthcare, and more can get deep insight into the security processes and controls that protect customer data. AWS maintains SOC and ISO compliance through extensive third-party audits of AWS controls. These audits ensure that the appropriate safeguards and procedures are in place to protect against security risks that may affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer and company data. As an example, Alfresco can now support a wider set of document understanding workloads that require SOC and ISO compliance. Scott Elliott, SVP Worldwide Alliances and Channels says, “this regulatory-compliant, textual information can be stored as document properties in Alfresco’s Digital Business Platform, enabling, for example, tax filing and insurance claim solutions.” For customers and partners who want to access the results of these third-party audits, the reports are available on the AWS Compliance site.
Amazon Textract is SOC compliant and ISO compliant in all AWS regions where Textract is available. The ISO and SOC compliance reports are available via AWS Artifact in the AWS Management Console. To learn more about Amazon Textract, please visit the Amazon Textract product page here.
