AWS Security Hub Now Generally Available
I’m a developer, or at least that’s what I tell myself while coming to terms with being a manager. I’m definitely not an infosec expert. I’ve been paged more than once in my career because something I wrote or configured caused a security concern.
When systems enable frequent deploys and remove gatekeepers for experimentation, sometimes a non-compliant resource is going to sneak by. That’s why I love tools like AWS Security Hub, a service that enables automated compliance checks and aggregated insights from a variety of services. With guardrails like these in place to make sure things stay on track, I can experiment more confidently.
And with a single place to view compliance findings from multiple systems, infosec feels better about letting me self-serve. With cloud computing, we have a shared responsibility model when it comes to compliance and security. AWS handles the security of the cloud: everything from the security of our data centers up to the virtualization layer and host operating system.
Customers handle security in the cloud: the guest operating system, configuration of systems, and secure software development practices. Today, AWS Security Hub is out of preview and available for general use to help you understand the state of your security in the cloud. It works across AWS accounts and integrates with many AWS services and third-party products.
You can also use the Security Hub API to create your own integrations.
