AWS Config

Configuration and vulnerability management software

About AWS Config

AWS Config is a configuration and vulnerability management software that helps businesses manage continuous audits, operational troubleshooting, compliance monitoring, and more from within a unified platform. It allows staff members to automatically send updates of all configuration changes including resource updation, creation, and deletion.

AWS Config enables team members to codify compliance requirements, deploy compliance rules, and automate configuration assessment processes. The resource relationship tracking tool lets users automatically discover, map, and track AWS resource relationships. With the aggregated dashboard functionality users can view and track rule compliance status for enterprise-wide applications across multiple accounts and regions.

AWS Config comes with an API, which lets users integrate the platform with several third-party solutions.
