Amazon to roll out Verified Access security technology

During its yearly AWS re: Invent show, Amazon announced its new AWS Verified Access security technology, which are set to roll out across enterprise-owned Apple products, Computer World reports. According to the company, AWS Verified Access is founded on zero-trust principles, allowing IT teams to create, refine and manage security policies for private application access, which must be fulfilled before users and their devices are allowed to access internal services hosted on AWS. This would remove the need for enterprises to employ virtual private networks and allows for more fine-tuned access conditions for specific users and devices. For example, you can create policies allowing only members of the finance team to access their financial reporting application and using only compliant devices, Amazon said. The new system is designed to improve enterprises security posture by now requiring verification each time an application is accessed, and aids troubleshooting efforts by logging all access attempts. Amazon said it is partnering with device management vendors including Jamf andJumpCloud to integrate the new technology across Apple devices.
