In this video from the Columbia AWS Meetup held on August 8, 2019, Thorn Technologies’ DevOps Engineer Robert Chen provides an introduction to AWS Control Tower, which recently launched to general availability in June.

AWS Control Tower lets you provision multiple AWS accounts, integrate them with AWS Single-Sign On, and preconfigure them with security best practices, or guardrails.

Managing multiple AWS accounts is becoming more common. And AWS Control Tower makes it much easier to manage and secure them.

Here are a few things that guardrails can do:

• Enable AWS Config in all regions
• Enable CloudTrail in all regions, and use Service Control Policies to prevent their modification
• Integrate CloudTrail with CloudWatch, and consolidate logs in a single AWS account
