Security consultant Andrew Krug at a special briefing last week at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas outlined several key security features in Amazon Web Services' AWS Config.

Forrester Research recently identified AWS as a leader in cloud security, citing AWS' capabilities in data center security, certifications, and network security. And as Gartner pointed in its recent Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, because AWS has such a large installed base, it has set up partnerships with reputable providers that put it in a strong position to operate according to best practices.

Based on his talk at Black Hat last week and a follow-up interview with Dark Reading, Krug offers six reasons why AWS Config can deliver the security levels to instill confidence in the cloud.
