Amazon WorkSpaces Web is now called Amazon WorkSpaces Secure Browser

Posted on: May 20, 2024

Today, AWS End User Computing announced Amazon WorkSpaces Web is now called Amazon WorkSpaces Secure Browser. With WorkSpaces Secure Browser, users can access private websites and software-as-a-service (SaaS) web applications, interact with online resources, or browse the internet from a disposable container. The service helps reduces the risk of data exfiltration by streaming web content - no HTML, document object model (DOM), or sensitive company data is transmitted to the local machine. Isolating the device, corporate network, and internet from each other helps reduce the surface area for browser born attacks while protecting sensitive company data.

For current customers, there is no change to how you manage users or resources with the service. WorkSpaces Secure Browser supports various security standards and compliance certifications, which can be found here. The service is available in 10 regions - US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), and across the European (Frankfurt, Ireland, London), and the Asia Pacific region (Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo).
