AMS deploys, monitors, and responds to a library of detective guardrails. These guardrails detect and alert on unexpected activity and noncompliance of resources within your accounts, such as policy violations. AMS extends these guardrails with the people, process, tooling, and reports needed through the lifecycle of these alarms. This mechanisms allows us to aggregate, organize, prioritize, and automate the remediation of the findings across your environment.
Automated compliance management
Save time and remove the risk of human error when you automate and scale compliance management. AWS automatically identifies, optimizes, and remediates resource configurations for continuous compliance and operational efficiency. Our immutable record of resource configuration, user activity, and API usage can be trusted for your auditing, compliance, and security processes.
With AWS, you can continuously monitor your risk management controls in a centralized view. AWS helps you aggregate and prioritize your compliance and security findings across AWS and third-party services to highlight emerging trends and possible issues. Gain insights into your compliance posture and easily troubleshoot where needed.
Assurance of compliance
Ensure that your risk management controls stand up to audit when you use AWS configuration, compliance, and auditing solutions. Streamline your audit processes with ready-to-go templates that align to industry standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and FedRAMP; automated logging and cryptographic protection of user activity and API logs; and continuous gathering of compliance evidence across your organization.
Topdanmark, a Danish insurance company, wanted to visualize AWS Config data in Amazon QuickSight dashboards.
“These dashboards offer insight to the teams and managers using your AWS accounts. If you use AWS Config rules, you can visualize which resources are compliant or noncompliant with your rules and share this data in compliance reviews with your development and operational teams.”
Henrik André Olsen, Solution Architect - Topdanmark
Genesys, a leader for omnichannel customer experience and contact center solutions, implemented AWS Config to optimize resource usage, which helped them reduce costs.
“AWS Config has greatly simplified our multi-account and multi-region strategy...Deploying the AWS Config configuration recorder across all deployed AWS Regions and accounts enables us to detect and clean up unused resources, resulting in significant cost reductions. It also enables us to better optimize our usage of AWS and avoid running up against AWS resource limits. Combined with AWS Config’s centralized reporting through aggregators, we get a holistic view of all of our environments in a single place.”
Bradley Segobiano, Lead Software Engineer in DevOps - Genesys
LendingTree, an online lending marketplace, wanted to track manual changes in development environments and relate resources to costing, applications, teams, and projects through proper use of tagging.
“The implementation of AWS Config rules has helped us to stay more consistent and limit human errors.”
