Connect to Even More Resources with StrongDM’s AWS Management Console

At StrongDM, we see a clear parallel between dynamic access and greater productivity. When you can ergonomically connect to resources, you can get more done.

We’ve just launched our AWS Management Console, adding yet another supported authentication method to improve control and auditability–so you can protect your business and improve employee productivity.

AWS Management Console Lets Admins Say Yes with Confidence

StrongDM’s AWS Management Console protects your most sensitive applications, services, and data so you can apply least-privilege access and observability across your entire stack–including full support for all past, present, and future infrastructure tooling. 

The AWS Management Console provides precise control for administrators, allowing them to determine what each user has access to without hindering productivity. It enables providing clear, direct, auditable and individualized access to the right people. Your staff can engage in more high-value work instead of constantly approving requests or waiting for access to do their jobs.

How AWS Management Console Works

StrongDM’s AWS Management Console authenticates with either the static AWS key pair or IAM role assumption on the gateway. You can configure how much access a user gets by defining IAM roles within AWS, then mapping those to AWS Management Console resources in StrongDM.

Best Practices for AWS Management Console

To make sure you’re getting the most out of AWS Management Console, enable logging in AWS using CloudTrail and AWS Access Analyzer. This lets you continue to log user activity after they’ve used StrongDM to access the AWS Management console.

Additionally, keep in mind the principle of least privilege. Use the AWS-managed policies, such as ReadOnlyAccess, when appropriate.

With the AWS Management Console, you’ll be able to securely grant access to more of your infrastructure and have the same control that StrongDM is known for providing. Your teams will spend less time provisioning access and waiting for approval and more time delivering value to your organization. It’s Dynamic Access Management (DAM) at its finest.

AWS Authentication Best Practices (That Go Beyond MFA)
AWS authentication confirms the identity of users trying to access your resources, safeguarding against potential intrusions and data breaches. But weak authentication practices—like easy-to-guess passwords and single-factor authentication (SFA)—are far too common and they leave the door wide open for threat actors. Weak authentication often leads to data theft, resource misuse, financial and reputational nightmares…the list goes on. On the contrary, strong authentication measures like Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) significantly reduce the risk of these incidents occurring. StrongDM takes AWS authentication to the next level, going beyond MFA to include granular access controls based on roles (RBAC), attributes (ABAC), and just-in-time approvals.

Luckily, there’s a solution that ensures security without the risks that come with traditional, credential-based authentication. This article discusses token-based authentication and explains why it's a reliable and flexible alternative to verifying users, especially for cloud applications.
