Using Amazon Web Services’ new Server Side Encryption feature, enterprises will at no extra cost be able to encrypt data stored on the company’s Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon said on Tuesday.
The Server Side Encryption feature has been added to simplify the process of protecting data stored on S3. Previously, enterprises had to choose an encryption algorithm, create and store keys, and adapt applications to ensure that all data was encrypted and decrypted for every operation. Now users can leave that to Amazon. The Server Side Encryption feature handles all encryption, decryption and key management transparently, according to a blog post.APPLICATION INTEGRATION
