AWS Makes Control Tower & Security Hub Generally Available

Security Hub aims to manage security across an AWS environment; Control Tower handles security and compliance for multi-account environments.

AWS re:Inforce – BOSTON – At its first AWS re:Inforce conference, Amazon Web Services announced general availability for AWS Security Hub and AWS Control Tower. The services are intended to handle security and compliance across a single AWS environment and multi-account environments, respectively.

AWS Security Hub, first debuted in November 2018, is a platform built to help companies monitor and prioritize security issues across an AWS environment. The platform aggregates and categorizes alerts from several AWS services (GuardDuty, Inspector, Macie) along with a network of products from AWS partners: Alert Logic, Check Point, CrowdStrike, Palo Alto Networks, Rapid7, IBM, McAfee, and others.

Security Hub clients can run automated compliance checks according to their industry standards and practices to identify accounts and resources that need to be investigated. The idea behind this is to give users a single place to view their AWS security and compliance state, AWS says in a release on the news.

Control Tower is intended to help customers set up and govern secure and compliant multi-account AWS environments. Customers have an automated "landing zone," or preconfigured setup with predefined rules for security, operations, and compliance. Organizations moving to AWS often need to manage several accounts across distributed teams; Control Tower helps cloud teams automatically deploy a single environment where teams can provision accounts.
