AWS Control Tower now displays the compliance status of AWS Config rules deployed outside of AWS Control Tower. This view provides you with visibility into the compliance status of externally applied AWS Config rules in addition to AWS Config rules set up by AWS Control Tower.

Prior to this feature, viewing the compliance status of external AWS Config rules required navigating to the AWS Config console. With this launch, you can now access the compliance status for your external AWS Config rules by navigating to the account details page in your AWS Control Tower management account. This makes it possible to evaluate the configuration settings of your AWS resources without leaving the AWS Control Tower console.

AWS Control Tower offers the easiest way to set up and govern a secure, multi-account AWS environment based on AWS best practices. To learn more, visit the AWS Control Tower homepage or see the AWS Control Tower User Guide. For a full list of AWS Regions where AWS Control Tower is available, see the AWS Region Table.
