AWS “We will provide the most advanced form of digital sovereignty control and function.”
Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced ‘Digital Sovereignty Pledge-Guaranteed Data Control Rights’ on the 28th. It includes providing cloud customers with control over their data location and movement.
AWS emphasized that digital assets and digital sovereignty control have become more important than ever as the cloud becomes mainstream and governments and standards-setters develop security, data protection and privacy regulations.
It added that it has been the only major cloud company that allows customers to control data location and movement since the beginning of the service, and that it still makes granting such rights a top priority.
Matt Garman, senior vice president of marketing and global services at AWS, said the digital sovereignty pledge included ▲ control over data locations ▲ verifiable control over data access ▲ ability to encrypt everything anywhere ▲ original design for digital sovereignty protection, including cloud resiliency.
“Amazon Web Services is committed to helping our customers meet their digital sovereignty requirements. AWS will continue to innovate sovereign functionality, control, and security within the global AWS cloud and deliver it without any compromise on all of AWS’s capabilities,” he said.
Meanwhile, Amazon Web Services’s announcement of the digital sovereignty pledge is interpreted as a result of countries around the world emphasizing sovereignty over data and strengthening regulations.
