Today, AWS announces the general availability of AWS Management Console Private Access. AWS Management Console Private Access is an advanced security feature that allows customers to define a set of trusted AWS accounts and organizations that can access the AWS Management Console from within their network. For example, with AWS Management Console Private Access, customers can restrict access to personal AWS accounts from the company network.
AWS Management Console Private Access is built on VPC Endpoints, which uses AWS PrivateLink to establish a connection between a customer VPC and the AWS Management Console. Customers can designate which accounts and AWS Organizations are allowed to access the AWS Management Console from their network. It denies attempts to access the AWS Management Console from within their network using any other AWS accounts.
Private Access is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore).
For information about Private Access, see in the AWS Management Console User Guide.
