Amazon’s S3 (Simple Storage Service) is recognized as the de facto standard interface for interacting with object stores. Deploying an object solution at scale requires rich and robust security that both protects data on the infrastructure and ensures only the right level of access is granted to end users. Join us for the second of our S3 webinars, when we discuss all things security related. You will learn:
- Accessing S3 resources using access keys and signing.
- How to use Identity and Account Management.
- Supporting external users.
- Using code to manage access permissions.
- How data is protected in-flight and at rest.
- Encryption choices; using S3, Key management or customer supplied keys
