AWS Config Adds Support for AWS Systems Manager Patch Compliance and Association Compliance

Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) Adds Support for Encryption at Rest

Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) now supports encryption at rest for new DAX clusters to help you accelerate reads from Amazon DynamoDB tables in security-sensitive applications that are subject to strict compliance and regulatory requirements.

DAX provides you a fully-managed, highly available, in-memory cache that is capable of accelerating reads from DynamoDB tables by up to 10x, even at millions of requests per second. You can use DAX without making changes to your existing application logic and using your existing DynamoDB APIs calls. DAX manages cache invalidation and data population on your behalf. With the new encryption at rest support, you can also encrypt the storage for your DAX clusters to help you protect data on your DAX nodes, such as configuration and log files. This data is encrypted using AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS).

DAX is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), South America (São Paulo), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Regions.

Events Ingestion API With Batch Submission Capability

You can now record analytics and messaging events directly using the Amazon Pinpoint Events Ingestion API. The API supports submission of events individually or in batches, updating user endpoints along with events generated by the user that can be used to record user events from your backend in addition to events recorded by your client application.

You can now record analytics and messaging events directly using the Amazon Pinpoint Events API, which is also part of the AWS SDKs. Previously, the only way to record events with Pinpoint was using the AWS mobile SDKs or libraries like AWS Amplify. The new Events API enables you to build your own client for recording events with any customization that you desire. The API also enables you to record events directly from your backend, either individually or in batches. This is useful if you don’t capture all your events on the client application and would like to record server-side events with Pinpoint. For instance, say you capture certain usage analytics directly to your backend to add additional attributes to the events. You can now record these events with Pinpoint from your backend using this API. 

Automate secrets management with AWS Secrets Manager
