What is AWS Security?


Architected to be the most secure cloud infrastructure

Build, run, and scale your applications on infrastructure architected to be the most secure cloud computing environment available today. As organizations migrate and build on cloud, they need assurance that they have a secure foundation. AWS has the most proven operational experience of any cloud provider. Our cloud infrastructure is highly trusted and secure-by-design, giving customers the confidence to accelerate innovation.

Security automation that drives speed and agility

Move fast and stay secure by confidently integrating and automating security into every part of your organization. Building securely should be the path of least resistance – with no tradeoff between security with speed. With security automation, teams spend their limited time on the highest value tasks, reduce human error, and scale security best practices across the organization.

End-to-end security and guidance

Innovate with a wide portfolio of security services and partner solutions to help achieve end-to-end security for your organization. Organizations require powerful capabilities, designed and built by experts, which encode years of experience, knowledge and best practices, all available at their fingertips. They don’t want to navigate this changing threat and compliance landscape alone.
