Inventory and Configuration Management - Introduction to AWS Security

Inventory and Configuration Management

AWS offers a range of tools to allow you to move fast, while still enabling you to ensure that your cloud resources comply with organizational standards and best practices. These include:

  • Deployment tools to manage the creation and decommissioning of AWS resources according to organization standards.

  • Inventory and configuration management tools to identify AWS resources and then track and manage changes to those resources over time.

  • Template definition and management tools to create standard, preconfigured, hardened virtual machines for EC2 instances.
