Amazon touts improved cloud security at re:Invent
Las Vegas – One of the first breakout sessions at Amazon’s re:Invent cloud conference was an “AWS Security State of the Union” standing-room-only address by the company’s Chief Information Security Officer Steve Schmidt.
“Enterprise security is not where it needs to be,” Schmidt said in the opening moments of the presentation. Why? Because security in the cloud is hard. One of the biggest problems, Schmidt says, is that there is a lack of automation. With the products AWS launched at re:Invent this week, the company is attempting to change that.
