Amazon S3 Security

Hi Experts,

I have a client who is concerned that the documents we are storing on Amazon S3 cloud storage are insecure. Though they are transferred through an SSL and the bucket policy restricts access exclusively to the client's domain name, should we be concerned about security? Would encrypted files be sufficient, or should we move to a different service?

Thanks,
Steve

Hi,

 Amazon S3 allows you to encrypt data in both ways - Server-side Encryption and Client-side Encryption. This allows you to encrypt the data in-transit and at rest.

Further more you can enhance security of your data at rest using Reduced Redundancy Storage and using Versioning.

Amazon S3 has highly durable storage infrastructure and  objects are stored redundantly on multiple devices across multiple facilities in an Amazon S3 region.  

Hope this helps you.

Best Regards
Raghav.
