Security in Amazon File Cache - Amazon File Cache

Security in Amazon File Cache

Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you benefit from data centers and network architectures that are built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.

Security is a shared responsibility between you and AWS. The shared responsibility model describes this as security of the cloud and security in the cloud:

  • Security in the cloud – Your responsibility is determined by the AWS service that you use. You're also responsible for other factors including the sensitivity of your data, your company’s requirements, and applicable laws and regulations.

  • Security of the cloud – AWS is responsible for protecting the infrastructure that runs AWS services in the Amazon Web Services Cloud. AWS also provides you with services that you can securely use. Third-party auditors regularly test and verify the effectiveness of our security as part of the AWS Compliance Programs. To learn about the compliance programs that apply to Amazon File Cache, see AWS Services in Scope by Compliance Program.
