Amazon Macie New Validation Capability For Amazon S3 Object

Amazon Macie is a fully managed data security and data privacy service that uses machine learning and pattern matching to discover and protect your sensitive data in AWS.

At re:Inforce 2022, AWS launched a new capability in Amazon Macie that allows for one-click, temporary retrieval of up to 10 examples of sensitive data found in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) by Amazon Macie.

This new capability enables customers to more easily view and understand which contents of an S3 objects were identified to be sensitive, in order to be reviewed, validated and take action as needed.

All sensitive data examples captured with this new capability are encrypted using customer-managed AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) keys and are temporarily viewable within the Amazon Macie console after being retrieved.

Previously, users could only see the locations of the sensitive data discovered by Amazon Macie. To review the sensitive data, customers had to manually go back to the original dataset using the location information provided by Amazon Macie which slowed down security investigations.

Getting started with Amazon Macie is fast with one-click in the AWS Management Console or with a single API call.

Amazon Macie comes with a 30-day free trial for S3 bucket level inventory and evaluation of access controls and encryption.
