Amazon yesterday announced the implementation of five new security features to its S3 web servers. Considering at least 185,000 sites run on Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3, this is a much needed update.
The primary problem addressed by the new features is lazy administrators. Over 53-percent of cloud service administrators have unintentionally exposed their company’s data to the internet.
It’s scary to think the odds of your data on sites like Healthcare.gov being potentially unprotected are better than your chances of accurately guessing the results of a coin-flip.
