Amazon Web services (AWS) Security Centre.
The AWS cloud infrastructure has been architected to be one of the most flexible and secure cloud computing environments available today. It provides an extremely scalable, highly reliable platform that enables customers to deploy applications and data quickly and securely.
With the AWS cloud, not only are infrastructure headaches removed, but so are many of the security issues that come with them. AWS’s world-class, highly secure data centres utilise state-of-the art electronic surveillance and multi-factor access control systems.
Data centres are staffed 24x7 by trained security guards, and access is authorised strictly on a least privileged basis. Environmental systems are designed to minimise the impact of disruptions to operations. And multiple geographic regions and Availability Zones allow you to remain resilient in the face of most failure modes, including natural disasters or system failures.
The AWS virtual infrastructure has been designed to provide optimum availability while ensuring complete customer privacy and segregation.
