Cloud Security, Zero trust

New, expanded security tools unveiled by Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services has introduced a slew of new security tools while expanding other services' capabilities and availability in a bid to foster zero-trust security across the cloud infrastructure, according to The Hacker News. Following the move of Amazon Security Lake, which enables consolidation of AWS and non-AWS security data for cloud and on-premises environments, to general availability, AWS has unveiled the new Verified Permissions service that leverages the open-source Cedar programming language to enable management of authorizations and permissions, while adding Lambda code-scanning capabilities to its Inspector vulnerability management service. Updates have also been introduced for the GuardDuty threat detection service to enable Aurora database and EKS Runtime container scanning, as well as Lambda-based threat identification. Also announced by AWS were the preview release of static application testing tool CodeGuru Security and the Global Partner Security Initiative. "Our customers want identity preventative controls so they can define a data perimeter more easily, and be able to operate at scale," said AWS Chief Information Officer CJ Moses.
