AWS Backup Audit Manager now allows you to audit and report on the compliance of your data protection policies for Amazon S3 and AWS Storage Gateway. Using AWS Backup Audit Manager, you can now continuously evaluate the backup activity of your Amazon S3 and AWS Storage Gateway resources and generate audit reports that can help you demonstrate compliance with organizational best practices or regulatory standards.

AWS Backup Audit Manager provides automated alerting that you can now use to identify your Amazon S3 and AWS Storage Gateway resources that are not attached to a backup plan, audit whether your backups are immutable using AWS Backup Vault Lock’s WORM (write-once, read-many) capabilities, and track whether your AWS Storage Gateway backups are protected by storing separable copies across AWS Regions and AWS accounts. You can use AWS Backup Audit Manager’s automated alerting to detect violations of your organizational data protection policies and take corrective actions to meet your business continuity and compliance needs.

AWS Backup Audit Manager is available in the US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (N. California, Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm), South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong, Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), and Middle East (Bahrain) Regions.
