"Using AWS Organizations was the right choice, and by adding AWS Control Tower, we basically had a structure that delivered security by design.”

“Prior to using AWS Control Tower, our account provisioning process was roughly 4 hours long with 25 manual steps. The original process required significant validation and was error-prone. As our account baselines progressed over time, the older accounts began to drift and required substantial effort to bring everything into alignment. With Control Tower, we can provision accounts that adhere to our corporate policy in less than 30 minutes, and with as few as 10 steps. Control Tower enables our organization to quickly create new accounts that adhere to our requirements, replacing manual steps with automation. The out-of-the-box guardrails and integration with other AWS services is extremely useful and has saved countless hours of development, testing, and implementation.”
