AWS has established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify partners with deep industry experience and expertise. CSS is one of eight organizations that have achieved security competency in the Data Protection category.

“We are thrilled to achieve AWS Security Competency status and be recognized by AWS for providing a data protection solution that helps customers achieve security in the cloud,” said Ed Casmer, CTO and Co-Founder of CSS. “As organizations ingest data from third-party sources and share it with users as part of their application workflows and cloud-native data lakes, they could potentially open the door to ransomware-infected objects and viruses. To minimize this risk, they should directly scan all objects in their buckets for malicious payloads. We are proud to provide companies using or migrating to AWS with an anti-malware tool that has been rigorously reviewed and technically validated by AWS.

Data Classification for Amazon S3: Knowing What Sensitive Data Exists and Where
With Data Classification for Amazon S3, organizations can easily and proactively manage data protection and compliance across all of their AWS accounts and Amazon S3 buckets. This is a critical capability for businesses that store sensitive data and need to comply with laws such as GDPR and HIPAA.

This cloud-based solution harnesses the power of Sophos to identify petabyte-scale sensitive data and provides simplified reports that show what type of data each file contains and the bucket it resides in. Additionally, security attributes such as whether a bucket is publicly accessible or whether the data is encrypted are provided. This is crucial because these data points can be used to assess data risk and prioritize vulnerability management. For example, with this information, an organization can determine if a bucket containing sensitive data is at risk and take action to prevent a data breach.

Data classification for Amazon S3 is designed to scale automatically to efficiently analyze even the largest data sets, with no file size limit. To further strengthen security and performance, the software runs as a tenant (it is not software as a service (SaaS)), which means data never leaves the AWS account. an organization.

By identifying and labeling data, organizations can better understand and manage their security risks,” said Aaron Newman, chairman and co-founder of CSS. “Cloud Storage Security Data Classification for Amazon S3 makes it easy to get started with data classification, and we are excited to offer this valuable service to our customers.
