Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Explore how millions of customers are currently leveraging AWS cloud products and solutions to build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability.

Security Recognized as Stronger than On-premises
The threat of attack is more commonplace for cloud providers, which is why they dedicate a huge slice of time and resources to securing their infrastructure. The intricate practices that are forced by regulatory compliance needs, surpasses what some in-house organizations mete-out.
Securing data, servers, and even applications helps cloud providers to develop layers of security that internal IT or development organizations simply cannot possess the time to create. Beyond this, cloud providers also have the advantage of writing off the cost of their security program among its customers by degrees.
Deep Visibility into Compliance and Governance
AWS is designed to allow US government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by acknowledging their specific regulatory and compliance needs.
It can improve your security management through a security audit of your applications and infrastructure that includes remediation of security issues, installation of security updates, and security optimizations. Additional security services offered include DDOS(Distributed Denial of Service) mitigation, security hardening, and implementation of an intrusion detection system (IDS).
Many companies have eagerly accepted the cloud as the way forward. Organizations already having a private or public cloud solution(s) have started to become fully aware of the importance of having the best of both worlds. Not only, do they want to save costs through pay-as-you-go pricing models (public cloud), but they also want a higher security for mission-critical applications (private cloud). Brings us to the question, what the acceptance of a hybrid cloud model mean for organizations in future?
Though, it will take some more time for companies to shift critical workloads to the hybrid cloud environment, future trends clearly indicate a preference for hybrid cloud computing. In fact, Gartner has predicted that almost 50% of the larger organizations will have embraced hybrid cloud models by the end of 2017.
