AWS launches new security solutions around AWS Wickr, AWS Marketplace, Amazon GuardDuty, AWS Security Hub as well as revamped security partner programs. Here’s the 10 you need to know.

AWS Security Competency For Partners

Amazon Web Services has reinvented its popular AWS Security Competency program with eight new categories to help customers more easily find partner software and service solutions while also providing the channel with over 40 specific customer use cases.

Each of the eight categories are defined by AWS security experts to help customers find specific system integrators, security managed service providers and independent software vendor (ISV) offerings to fit their specific cloud security needs.

“We’ve created common customer use cases based off of real, boots on the ground, in the field experience we’ve seen at the customer level,” said Ryan Orsi, AWS’ worldwide head of Cloud Foundations for the AWS Partner Network.

“So the partner opportunity is around aligning their product or service, their messaging, and their go-to-market strategy to what AWS is seeing as the most highly in-need challenges out there for security with these new categories,” said Orsi. “It’s a great way for partners to increase their business, increase their trust and visibility with their customers and prospects out there to show they have all the right skill sets and knowledge about AWS environments.”

The new AWS Security Competency categories are aligned to work with common security problems businesses encounter during their cloud journey, with AWS matching a customer with partner to help with deployment, staff training, multi-cloud implementations, hybrid security tools and automation.

The AWS Security Competency helps customers easily identify software and service partners that have expertise in specific security categories.

The revamped security competency highlights partners that hold deep technical expertise and proven customer success securing every stage of cloud adoption, from initial migration through ongoing day-to-day management.
