Amazon Web Services Adds Security, Ease of Use and Migration to WorkMail's General Availability
FREMONT, CA: Amazon Web Services announces the general availability of the WorkMail, a secure, managed business service that gives users the ability to seamlessly access their email, contacts, and calendars using Microsoft Outlook, their web browser, or their native iOS and Android email applications. The managed calendaring and email solution runs in the cloud and works with existing desktop and mobile clients.
Users can integrate Amazon WorkMail with their existing corporate directory, control the encryption of data and secure the location in which the data is stored.
The email service built as a native back-end support solution for Microsoft Outlook on Windows and Mac OS X is able to integrate with several existing corporate directories such as Microsoft Active Directory. Mailboxes can also be synced with Amazon Fire, and Windows Phone devices using the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol, reports Corinne Reichert for ZDNet.
With an eye on security, ease of use, and migration, the AWS WorkMail consists of additional features that aim to streamline integration with KMS, Migration and Interoperability, Regional Data Control, Easy Setup, Additional Client Support and Resource Creation.
The email administrator can use AWS Key Management Service (KMS) to create and manage the keys that are used to encrypt data at rest. WorkMail has achieved the ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018 certifications enabling customers to understand the controls in AWS that maintain security and data protection in the cloud.
AWS WorkMail now includes a migration tool that can move existing mailboxes for the user. The service allows users to choose the region where they want to store their mailboxes. The customers can also create and book resources such as meeting rooms and equipment through the email solution.
