Data security is a particularly important topic for multi-tenant SaaS applications that handle customers’ sensitive data. How to securely segregate tenant data and how to provide data access to customers will vary depending on the SaaS solution’s architecture and its requirements. This post explores how SaaS vendors can build secure, scalable, and cost-effective data exchange mechanisms using SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) with AWS managed services like AWS Transfer Family.
As multi-tenant SaaS providers look to leverage machine learning services, they must consider how they’ll protect the data that flows in and out of these services from different tenants. Learn how tenant isolation of machine learning services can be achieved using AWS IAM, and how the integration between IAM, Amazon SageMaker, and many other AWS services provide developers with a rich set of mechanisms that can be applied to realize tenant isolation goals.
Tenant isolation is fundamental to the design and development of SaaS systems, enabling providers to reassure customers their resources cannot be accessed by other tenants. While the importance of isolation is well understood, the strategies for realizing a robust isolation model vary significantly. Learn how our new SaaS Tenant Isolation Strategies whitepaper assembles a collection of best practices and considerations that often shape your approach to implementing isolation in a SaaS environment.
Many SaaS organizations leverage AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to define a series of policies and roles that can be used to ensure tenants are not allowed to cross tenant boundaries when accessing resources. To make this work, you have to create separate policies for each tenant which can create an explosion of tenant policies that push the account limits of IAM. Learn how dynamic policy generation creates a more scalable and manageable isolation experience.
