Amazon Web Services (AWS), an Amazon.com company, announced that Amazon Macie has been updated. With this update, Macie got new features, more availability worldwide, and a price reduction.
What features has Amazon Macie got?
New features include updated machine learning models for more accurate detection of personal information (PII), support for customer-defined data types, and AWS Organizations and local multiple account management. Serving in 17 AWS Zones worldwide, for now, Macie will be available in more zones in the next few months.
There is no need to pay an additional fee or advance commitment to using Amazon Macie, and customers only pay for the processed data and evaluated Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) folders. You can click here to use Macie.
Amazon Macie reduces this burden by providing a scalable, low-cost service that helps customers more easily discover and protect sensitive data on AWS. Activated with a single click from AWS Management Console, Amazon Macie automatically provides customers with a full inventory of Amazon S3 folders. Customers select the folders they want to send for sensitive data discovery, and Amazon Macie compares with predefined common sensitive data types using machine and learning and directory matching to identify and classify this data.
Amazon Macie’s data discovery engine has been completely redesigned over the past few months to better utilize storage and computing resources and perform faster and scalable detection. The price per GB processed with these optimizations was reduced from $5 to $1, resulting in a price reduction of 80 percent (exceeding 90 percent for high volume customers).
With a single click or a single API call, you can quickly and easily get started with Amazon Macie in AWS Management Console. The trial version includes 30 days of free Amazon S3 folder inventory and folder-level security assessments. Customers can view cost estimates in the Amazon Macie console to see what their monthly estimated total spend will be when the trial ends. Amazon Macie also offers 1 GB of sensitive data discovery monthly for free. This free service is not only valid for a 30-day trial period, it is valid indefinitely.
