AWS adds vital security feature to make life easier for its users



Amazon Web Services is upping the ante on the security front with new and important changes for AWS and Identity and Access Management (IAM) users. Announcing the changes in a blog post published earlier this week, the company’s Liam Wadman and Khaled Zaky announced that users can now add more than one multi-factor authentication (MFA) device to AWS account root users, and IAM users in their AWS accounts. 

Up until now, there could only have been one MFA endpoint associated with root users or IAM users, but now Amazon brought it up to eight, a change which “raises the security bar”, as the authors put it.
