Session Manager – another sneaker AWS feature?

Session Manager – another sneaker AWS feature?

AWS has been expanding their Systems Manager tool over the last year, adding a number of important features. Session Manager is the latest piece of the puzzle.

Cloud Security – it’s up to you!

There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza… Recently, there have been a number of high profile leakages of data as a result of customer configuration of AWS S3 buckets.
