Data Classification for Amazon S3 - PAYG with 30 DAY FREE TRIAL

By: Cloud Storage Security Latest Version: 7.03.000

Product Overview

Data Classification for Amazon S3 is a cloud-based in-tenant solution that leverages the power of Sophos to identify sensitive data at petabyte scale across all S3 buckets. Knowing what sensitive data exists and where it exists enables you to proactively manage data privacy and protection as well as compliance with frameworks such as SOC 2, PCI DSS, and HIPAA.


We have harnessed three decades of SophosLabs experience to give you an automated solution that:

  • Identifies hundreds of sensitive data types
  • Covers 11 regional localizations: USA, UK, France, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Australia, Canada, Japan, China, Global

Data Classification for Amazon S3 scales automatically to efficiently scan the largest of datasets, with no file size limit.

A streamlined installation via an AWS Fargate Container and deployment via an AWS CloudFormation template means you are up and running in about 15 minutes. From there, a few clicks is all it takes to initiate a data classification scan on demand or to schedule it later in the day, week, or month (scanning agents can be configured to meet a wide range of compliance requirements).

Once a scan is complete, a report of the files containing sensitive data is generated, allowing you to see the type of data each file contains as well as the bucket in which it resides.

Additionally, you can identify bucket attributes such as whether it is publicly accessible or encrypted. Cross reference classification and bucket protection findings to determine whether a bucket containing sensitive data is exposed; when combined, data points such as these can be used to assess data risk and prioritize vulnerability management.

You will be alerted to findings via real-time notifications within the console or through AWS SNS. Findings can also be sent to AWS Security Hub, third party ticketing systems, SIEM solutions, Slack, Microsoft Teams, or Amazon Chime.

To further support security and performance, the solution runs in tenant, meaning your data remains in your AWS account.


In addition to data privacy and protection requirements, many compliance frameworks and regulations require organizations to implement procedures that protect against advanced threats. Specifically, by scanning for malware. In line with the AWS Shared Responsibility Model, it is the responsibility of the organization using S3 to do so.

Through our Antivirus for Amazon S3 solution, Cloud Storage Security provides you with assurance that the files shared across their applications and data lakes are free from malware and viruses by scanning each item for advanced threats. You can find Antivirus for Amazon S3 in AWS Marketplace at
